Subtitles disabled on new tv

  Sclew 12:40 30 Sep 2018

Subtitles are permanently displaying on my new Samsung tv. Settings/accessibility tells me subtitles are "disabled" so I cannot turn them off. Very frustrating. Any tips?

On my TV remote it has a button for turning on and off Subtitles. Mind you I have an older TV so maybe you do not have it on your remote.

Got the button on the remote but it doesn't work as subtitles are disabled in settings. Thanks anyway

If you bought it from a store, the sales guy should know how to sort it.

Alternatively enable them in settings then turn them off on the remote .

Sounds like a faulty TV if subtitles are being displayed and yet subtitles are disabled. This is a contradiction in terms. Are you able to demand a new TV or get a refund?

Thank you for the suggestions. Finally managed to solve the problem through settings in iplayer. Phew!
