Question about Philips Magnavox 20MT133S 20" TV
I have a magnavox tv with the original remote
how do i get rid of the sub titles?
It has the word su/title button on the remote, but when i push it nothing turns off
It may sound simplistic but many times when a remote starts to act flaky, replacing the battery (or batteries) will cure the problem.
They don't last forever.
Another possibility is that the Closed Caption feature has been set in the menu so a check of basic settings might help.
Finally, the contacts in most remotes consist of small carbon buttons and fixed contacts on a printed circuit board.
The board contacts were once flashed with gold plating but - well, we know what has happened to gold lately, so manufacturers have pretty much ceased to use gold and some don't even bother with nickle now but just depend on the tin-lead solder to last beyond the warranty.
This latter material does oxidize over time and becomes a lot less conductive.
If you can crack the case (sometimes there is a concealed screw or two- be careful) it can help to gently run a pencil eraser over the board contacts to restore their shiny surface.
