I cannot see the subtitles, even though I am completely zoomed out. Could it have something to do with my wide screen tv? How do I correct it?
I lost my manual when I moved and am pretty much a granny novice at this stuff. You had no listing for the model 380, so I entered 390
For the DVM-390 model, the above problem can be due to the TV Guardian (TVG) mode. I would go to the intial setting options and under Language turn the TVG mode to "Off" and see if that allows the subtitle languages to appear on screen.

You cannot defeat the auto subtitles permanently. Every time you turn on the player it will automatically enable subtitles even if you had disabled it the last time you used it. Can be irritating but the player has very good quality picture !! so you can forgive them of this.
Normally when a DVD is inserted, the subtitles option (if it appears in the on-screen DVD menu) is set to 'OFF' by default, but since you do not have the remote, you cannot access it. Some DVDs have the subtitle/captions enabled at startup, so there is nothing you do can do without the correct remote for this model (which may no longer be available anywhere) and it's even worse if the subtitles are not in English or the audio language is not English or both!
Nice to have a remote (universal one if you can find one which can operate this model) then you can have basic control over it, but I cannot assure you that it will turn subtitle/captions off per disc. Just one of those things - but you can look around for a universal remote (if it has subtitle button) and it might work. Or you can look around at secondhand remote/DVD decks online etc.
Up to you what you decide to do here. If it comes to the crunch, and you can no longer tolerate the subtitles being on all the time with each disc during manual playback, consider replacing the whole player (this is cheaper in the long term) - but only as a last resort, since Blu-Ray players (with DVD playback support) are becoming cheaper to buy. Something to think about later on if necessary.
Movies said have CC close captioning sometimes just an add on print.Must go to the movies main Menu.To see if it have a Title on the main menu said SUBTITLES English,Spanish or French.Press that SUBTITLES to get close captioning printing words on the screen.But if u push the underline word said SUBTITLES,nothing is showing up on the screen,than the DVD movie disc have a problems or the add on print said CC is a lies.That the world for u,nothing are 100%.
Usually, if the subtitles are from your dvd player, you can go to the main menu, select "languages" or "setup" (depending on the dvd), and find the subtitle option. You should be able to shut them off there in the menu. If the subtitles are there because of your tv, there should be a button labeled "cc" on your remote. If you press this key a few times, it should eventually read something like "cc off" on the tv screen.
I hope this helps, and good luck!
