When I watch a movie and the dialogue switches to other languages when foreign characters are talking, I dont get any of the subtitles. I have to turn subs on when this happens. V frustrating.


Maybe that's how it works, unless there is an auto subs or you must leave subs (aka subtitles) on.

You did not specify a make and model tv to comment on exactly.

I want to buy DVD's with subtitles for my daughter who is deaf


Nearly all DVD's have subtitles on them. You can simply select them by accessing the menu screen on the DVD when it loads. Go for the audio/language option. Also you can use the menu of any DVD and Blue Ray player and set it to show subtitles. When buying a DVD look at the back and it will tell you what languages are available and the subtitles. Some DVD's also use the initials "CC" standing for closed captions or subtitles. For your information too digital TV broadcasts have subtitles too. They can be shown be selecting them again from the TV menu system.

How to remove subtitles


Subtitles are embedded in the films. Are you thinking, perhaps, about closed captioning (CC)?

Trying to watch a foreign film with subtitles (DVD). The subtitles are getting cut off at the bottom of the screen. TV is on full screen format (not Zoom). We tried moving the picture up the screen, but...


First, try the "Aspect Ratio" button on the remote. If none of the settings remedy the problem, try accessing the menu of the DVD player to ensure that it is set to 16:9 aspect output.

Let me know if neither of these help.

How can i remove unwanted subtitles the movie is in english and the sub titles ate very distracting


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! Sincerely, Der Strom

Cant get the subtitles of the screen been pressing the subtitle button thanks.


Are you sure they are subtitles rather than closed captioning (if it is TV rather than DVD, it is closed captioning)?

If it is closed caption, pressing subtitle won't turn them off. If there is a button that says "Closed Caption" or "CC" press it. If not, press menu and look for the CC option (it should be under video or audio depending on the TV). Turn it off.

If you are watching a foreign language movie on TV (not DVD) it is likely hardsubbed (you can't turn the subs off because they are burned into the video).

Subtitles on Sanyo DVD Player Model DMW-380


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.
