Question about Philips 20PT6245 TV

1 Answer

Turning off the closed captioning without the remote.

I acquired a philips real flat tv, model # 20pt6245/37, second hand and without its original remote control and with the closed captioning turned on. I've tried a couple of universal remotes but I can't seem to find one which will turn the closed captioning off. I'm told by Philips that the original remote is required to fix the problem, that the television menu won't do the trick (which is a fact I well exhausted), but they don't have any in stock and I can't seem to find one elswhere. I was wondering if there was any other solution, perhaps in the television itself or by a specific universal, that would provide a solution.

I had the same problem. I got a Philips Magnavox Universal Remote that has a closed captioning button [CC]. Here's a link to the same type:

I have a philips flat tv Model # 42pf9630a/37, lost the remote and I can't program a remote to access the menu. The Closed caption is on and the screen format is not right.


I just checked and your specific remote is available on eBay for between $15 and $35. Just search the model number.

If you don't like eBay then consider a Logitech Harmony remote. They are easy to program and they will have all the functionality of your original remote including menu functions. I have two Logitech Harmony One remotes and there isn't a single thing I can't do that the stock remotes can do better. They are sold at Amazon, Tigerdirect, Walmart, Bestbuy, and just about any other electronics store.

I can not turn off the closed captioning on my philips tv , i do not have the original remote to the tv but my cable remote works as a universal remote, please help me the subtitles are driving me crazy !...


I have direct tv, and had the same problem. After an hour on the phone with the worthless tech, I gave up. Finally I figured it out. First of all do you have closed caption problems or is it "subtitles". mine turned out to be direct tv subtitles, not closed caption. I hit the yellow button on the direct tv remote, and presto. Subtitles was set to the on position. changed it to off, and what do you know. fixed.

Closed Caption


If you dont have the original remote, its going to be kinda hard, as universals wont work on this funtion on this set. The original remote has a button marked "CC" toward the bottom of the remote. Maybe you can borrowe on from a friend or a local sales store just so you can turn off the closed caption.. You can purchae a replace remote that is exactly the same as the original at http://www.remotes.com and enter your model number.
