Does not work

Check its battery contacts first. In remote controls, if battery contacts get rusted or dusty, proper battery connection will not occur. If battery contacts are good, check its infrared emission. You can check it with the help of a cellphone with camera option. Put the cellphone to camera mode, and place the remote control just one feet away from its lens, and push each button on the remote control. Eventhough human eye cannot detect infrared rays, electronic cameras can. If there is infrared rays emitting, you can see its image on the cellphone screen. If not, be sure that the remote contro is faulty. If there is infrared image, and still the device you wants to control does not respond; infrared sensor inside your device is faulty, and should be replaced. OK.

Volume control on reciver isn't working. Only using remote control for volume works. So I must need a volume control for the receiver. Is this an easy fix or not worth the time to fix

You haven't specified if all the other functions are working with the remote control or not. If no functions are working with remote control, either there is no infrared emission from your remote control handset. Check it with the help of a cellphone with camera option. Cellphone digital camera can detect the infrared rays comes out of the remote control. Just put the cellphone to camera mode, and place the remote control just about 1 feet away from its camera lens and push each button on the remote control and see whether there is any image of infrared rays indicates at your cellphone camera screen. If not, be sure that the remote control is not working, and should be replaced or repaired. Replace the cells first, and check. If this does not helps you and still the remote control is not working, replace it.
If the remote control works, and the all the other functions of your device can be set with it, the motor of the volume control or it control circuitary has damaged. To check this, you must have through knoledge in electronics and is a time taking service work. OK.

The subtittles on the tv I cant turn them off and its really annoying to watch the shows with all the writting in the way I tried holding the subtittle key on the remote down but it doesnt work pleaseee...

The only way to turn OFF subtitle is, press the subtitle key on the remote control itself. If it doesn't work, either your remote's subtitle key is not working properly or your remote control may not be the orginal one. To check the working of the subtitle key; you must have a cellphone with camera option. Hold the remote control in fromt of the camera lens of your cellphone, after set it to camera option, press the subtitle key, and see if an infrared image falls on the screen of the cellphone. Infrared rays, comes from the remote control cannot be detected by human eye, but electronic camera can sense it. Check this. Sometimes the switch may be faulty. If so, you have to open your remote control and clean it. Clean its inside printed circuit baord, and inner key pad buttons with a soft cloth dipped in pure alcohol or medical quality turpentine. Never use hard solvents like petrol or thinner, as they will damage both the plastic cover and inner rubber parts. If these does not help you, you have to buy an other remote of same number. OK.
