LG TV subtitles: turn on, won't turn off, format

The ability to display subtitles during a film or TV show is a useful tool that helps those with disabilities as well as those watching a program in a language that is not their mother tongue. It is built into most devices and is very easy to activate. This walkthrough will help you enable the automatic display of subtitles on your LG Smart TV.

How to turn on subtitles on LG Smart TV?

  • Press the Home button on your remote. Select the cog icon (top-right corner) to access Settings > Accessibility > Subtitle.
  • Toggle the Subtitle switch ON, and apply your changes. 
  • To turn subtitles off, instead of selecting ON, select OFF.

What to do when LG TV subtitles won't turn off? 

If the above method didn't work, try this variation that may work if your device is more recent. 

  • Press the Home / Menu button on your remote
  • Go to options > caption > enter
  • Then turn off the captions.

How to change the LG TV subtitles format?

Older versions of LG TV don't allow you to change the subtitle style and format, but if your TV is more recent (after 2014), then you should be able to change the font, color, size and style of subtitles. This allows you to adapt the subtitles to your own personal preferences. You can find these additional subtitle options in the Digital Mode Options menu that is found in the closed captions menu as explained above.
