    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.

Using a Philips universal remote and a brief prayer, press the "PIP" button, and then make the "CC off" selection.

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.

Polariod P40LCD12 reset


I personally have had the same problem with Universal remotes. The best solution is to buy the correct remote. I would first call the manufacturer to see what they would charge you for a new one. Then ask if they sell refurbished ones. Also check online for an OEM remote. You could probably get one for less than the universal remote.

Aren't you trying to select closed captions (CC)? If so, turning off the TV sound will cause closed captions to appear after a brief pause. Naturally, your TV has to be capable of doing this

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.

I have a dvd magnavox i lost the original remote control is it possible that i can replace it with a universal remote control?


IT IS possible that the universal will work but the universal will only do the basics. no menu or subtitles or anything like that. your best option is to purchase the original remote control. You can do this by typing in the model number of the DVD player in the search at ReplacementRemotes.com and if they have it it will show up. and you may be a be able to purchase the OEM remote.

Hmm... have you tried ontop of the remote where it has "tv" vcr" sat" etc...hit tv first then try the menu?and do you have satelite by any chance? because something similar happened to me when i had my old tv put upstairs and hooked up, the remote for it did not work so i had a universal and the tv was on "video 1" input the whole time and the universal remote didn not convert it back to tv so what i had to do was hook up the reciever to the "video 1" port instead of the "tv" input in the back...i hope you get it cause i know it can be a pain in the A$$
