Question about Philips Magnavox 27MS343S 27" TV
I cannot turn the subtitles off in my TV, the problem is that I do not have it's original remote control, so I am using a universal type one.
So how can I use that remote to turn subtitles off, or what other optins I have, when I go to MENU, there are not options for subtitles.
I want to thank whomever suggested the following...it works. I had been trying for days. Here is the solution:
Turn off the cable box and hit the menu button on the universal remote. The screen with the closed caption selection appears. Scroll down to the line regarding subtitles and turn it off.

For digital TV this is a feature of the satelite or cable box, not the TV itself. On the box remote press Menu, then go to Language, then find Text Language and select Off.

If your universal remote has a "shift" button. press it once then try pressing the number 1. This worked for me on a phillips tv with a GE universal remote. If that doesn't work try the shift button with every other button on the remote. That's how I found this trick out :)

OK, this solution works if you have the original remote. Press the "cc" button until you see "cc mute" displayed on the screen. Then press "mute". The tv will now only display the subtitles when the "mute" button is pressed.

If you have FIOS, you first go to menu, then you go to settings, then accessibility, then (CC)closed captions, and make sure that its off.

Just had the same problem !
Go to menu and go to retune and find first time installation and press ok. After a few minutes of waiting for channels to retune and settings subtitles will be off ?? ?? ??

If you have a Cable TV remote (mine's from Time Warner) find the PIP section. Be sure it is in the TV mode. Then press the ON-OFF button until CC is off.

They do not need original remotes any phillips/magnavox universal remote will work to get the cc off.

Depending on how old your TVs are, perhaps you can write the maker of the TV and ask how much the remote control would be and have them send it to you. I was having trouble big time with this very annoying feature. I went back to the TV remote control and saw a button marked "CC" on it and pressed that and lo and behold! I got rid of the pesky closed captions!! Look for the "CC" button on the TV remote control.

Has anyone noticed this exchange is ridiculous? Why have the people who design our TVs and access systems made it so difficult for us to get a whole lot of words we don't want from clogging uop the screens we pay them to put pictures on?

If you have a cable tv remote, find the PIP area. Hit the on-off button until CC is off.
