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.

My JVC 27" tv won't show subtitle. Is there any way to get it to come on? It looks like we have it turned on with the remote, but then it doesn't work.


Do you mean closed caption? Sub title on/off control is on the DVD player.

Check any TV channel to see whether the Closed Caption works? There should be a CC switch on the remote or there should be a CC on/off command from the TV menu.

Sub titles


Do you have your manuel? Hit caption on the remote control and it will say off on the screen. Then click again and select CC1. Just make sure you are watching a program that has CC. Some shows do not have that. Try a major network.

Closed Caption


If you dont have the original remote, its going to be kinda hard, as universals wont work on this funtion on this set. The original remote has a button marked "CC" toward the bottom of the remote. Maybe you can borrowe on from a friend or a local sales store just so you can turn off the closed caption.. You can purchae a replace remote that is exactly the same as the original at http://www.remotes.com and enter your model number.
