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.

Subtitles will not remove from t/v even when subtitle button is pushed on remote control


The sub titles are being generated by your Cable box or the Sat box. Sub titles are generated from two different sources: Cable Box,Satellite Box,U-Verse Box etc.
Check the settings in those sources and make suer the sub title is turned OFF in the tv set.

Sub-title does not appear.


It's called "closed captioning" and should be under the menu/setup button. Subtitles are only for DVD players.
