    I have tried everything to remove the subtitles on my screen, but they won't go away!!!! It is driving me crazy!!! Also,unfortunately when I was given the tv there was no remote, so I went out and bought a universal remote. The universal remote doesn't give you a way to get rid of the subtitles. I have no idea what to do they are driving me nuts!!!

I want to thank whomever suggested the following...it works. I had been trying for days. Here is the solution:
Turn off the cable box and hit the menu button on the universal remote. The screen with the closed caption selection appears. Scroll down to the line regarding subtitles and turn it off.

For digital TV this is a feature of the satelite or cable box, not the TV itself. On the box remote press Menu, then go to Language, then find Text Language and select Off.

If your universal remote has a "shift" button. press it once then try pressing the number 1. This worked for me on a phillips tv with a GE universal remote. If that doesn't work try the shift button with every other button on the remote. That's how I found this trick out :)

OK, this solution works if you have the original remote. Press the "cc" button until you see "cc mute" displayed on the screen. Then press "mute". The tv will now only display the subtitles when the "mute" button is pressed.

If you have FIOS, you first go to menu, then you go to settings, then accessibility, then (CC)closed captions, and make sure that its off.

Just had the same problem !
Go to menu and go to retune and find first time installation and press ok. After a few minutes of waiting for channels to retune and settings subtitles will be off ?? ?? ??

Posted on Aug 30, 2016

If you have a Cable TV remote (mine's from Time Warner) find the PIP section. Be sure it is in the TV mode. Then press the ON-OFF button until CC is off.

Posted on Oct 18, 2008

They do not need original remotes any phillips/magnavox universal remote will work to get the cc off.

Depending on how old your TVs are, perhaps you can write the maker of the TV and ask how much the remote control would be and have them send it to you. I was having trouble big time with this very annoying feature. I went back to the TV remote control and saw a button marked "CC" on it and pressed that and lo and behold! I got rid of the pesky closed captions!! Look for the "CC" button on the TV remote control.

Has anyone noticed this exchange is ridiculous? Why have the people who design our TVs and access systems made it so difficult for us to get a whole lot of words we don't want from clogging uop the screens we pay them to put pictures on?

Posted on Mar 30, 2010

If you have a cable tv remote, find the PIP area. Hit the on-off button until CC is off.

Subtitles on tv no remote to get them off cant get code for a new remote model no 3241ts


If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service center, or authorized dealer to your device brand.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its user manual. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. If you see the site by "MOSAIC" view, will make surf easier.

Hello
This CRT based tV is an anlogue one. You can use a universal remote control, except to unlock the FPA lock to this TV. By anyway, this TV has been locked with FPA lock, you must have its original remote control to unlock the lock. You can use most of the RCA universal remote controls with this TV.
RCA RCR 311W will be better. The setup codes are:
1000, 1002, 1004, 1005, 1014, 1025, 1078, 1081, 1095, 1096, 1097, 1098, 1099, 1100, 1101, 1111, 1128, 1130, 1132, 1134, 1144, 1146, 1149, 1171, 1205
OK.
