What button gets rid of subtitles that have just appeared on my tv. I must have pressed a button to start them but i dont know which one?


You are referring to closed captioning (CC) which is enabled/disabled by a button on the remote or by selection/cancellation during initial set up.

I can't get closed caption off my dvd player


Some DVD players cannot handle closed captions. Cheaper or older hardware players sometimes strip out the closed caption data. Players that have a progressive scan mode sometimes block captions when in this mode. And anything that's connected with an HDMI cable can't pass through captions.Most software players that you use when you play a DVD on your computer don't have any way to decode the captions. Windows Media Player can display DVD captions, and Apple DVD Player can display pop-on captions but not roll-up style captions. Certain paid versions of WinDVD and PowerDVD have CC capability. Look in your player's preferences to see if there are any closed caption options.

It's not working. The profanity still comes through when watching a dvd. I tried setting the tv on caption cc2. I think I did that. It did not make a difference.


U can't not stop profanity,if u watch NC17,PG13 or Rated R DVD movies.Captioning CC1,2,3 dosen't effect the DVD movie.It only have captioning on the tv that in tv brocasting shows,not in the DVD movie.If u want no profanity in movies watch PG movies.

Closed Captions won't work


make sure your dvd player has the capability to display closed captions, as not all of them do, also if it does have the capabilities, it may need a scart connection.
