Here is a question that we see often.

Question:

I've replaced everything in my television because it previously had a black screen with no lighting. Now it doesn't turn on at all and all I have is audio. What could be the cause ?

So your television stops working properly and you think it must be easy to fix, because you can buy boards on eBay, and you can watch YouTube videos. So you make a decision, you buy a board and you fit it, but the television still doesn't work! This is a classic case of the 'let's try replacing this' method of television repair and illustrates why it is a bad idea. It doesn't work for a number of reasons. To correctly diagnose issues, you need to know every board, what is does and every component on the board. You need to know which part has failed, replace the component, or replace the board. The parts you purchased off eBay were probably out of scrapped sets and not tested. The part your put in was dead when you put it in, so you just moved on to another guess at what might be the cause and replace a board that is fine. And so it goes on, you change all the boards and it still doesn't work. Did you notice the large print that says 'No Refunds, NO Returns'. This is to stop you sending your old one back and saying it didn't work, but the unscrupulous use it as an excuse to get money for selling items that may not work! The course to be a television engineer is 2 years full time education, take it to someone that knows how to diagnose and fix. It is by far the cheapest option. The part that failed might be a 20 cents fuse diode hard soldered to a board. They will charge you $2 parts and an hours labour. Take it for service.

The RMT-TX1020 is not a remote that I find online. There is a Sony RMT-TX102U which is included with several models, including the KDL-32R500C. First, what input are you using on the TV? If you are watching OTA (analog or digital), then if captions are available, you should be able to press the Subtitle (CC) button below the Channel Up/Down buttons on the remote. There are three choices for Caption Display: On/Off/On when sound muted. You can also adjust the type of captions. In most cases, you'll want to use CC1 for both Analog or Digital captions. Navigate through the menu using the select (the center + button) and the arrow keys as with all the other menus. If you are using a set-top box (cable, streaming, Blue-ray player), you probably need to enable the subtitles or captions at that device. It could be in a hardware settings menu and not a function controlled by their remote control.

My current TV setup includes IPTV (fiber-optic internet). To enable subtitles, I need to go to the Menu and then to Settings. Then I enter a password provided by the ISP and go to the Hardware > Audio > Captions menu. On a neighbor's satellite dish receiver that served two TVs, enabling captions on the second TV (for their hearing-impaired relative) required enable captions in the Hardware settings for the primary TV.

The subtitle button usage is described on page 30 on the manual for this TV. Sony has the manual on the product support page: https://www.sony.com/electronics/support/televisions-projectors-lcd-tvs/kdl-32r500c. The current link to the manual is https://www.sony.com/electronics/support/res/manuals/4562/45622791M.pdf .

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the video source for your TV if you want further assistance.
