@Murray Ronald Are you talking about "CC" (Close Caption) options here? If you press select while watching a Live TV program, you should see a CC option that you can toggle on or off.

Have a look at the Accessibilty options, there may be an advanced setting for those if you need more control.

If something else (i.e.  from a NetFlix or other premium APP program/video title), can you please explain or show a screen shot?

Also from an LG site (may be your issue):

"It’s a common complaint among LG TV owners. You’ve turned off the closed captions just as we’ve mentioned yet the subtitles remain. This happens most often when this happens the captions are turned on somewhere other than your TV.

Closed captions are available on a variety of devices that you use with your LG TV. From your cable box to a Roku or Firestick device, the captions could be appearing because they’re set up on another device. After you’ve verified that the captions are off on the LG TV using the methods above, check your connected devices to ensure the captions are off there as well."

Hi, thanks for your reply. This happens using either live (digital) TV via the antenna or the satellite via the dish, no set top box in use, only the TV.

Yes when I hit select there are toggle type choices for language choice and subtitles (i.e. closed captions I presume) etc.  I can toggle them between available langages or Off. This works fine.

BUT I have to do this EVERY time I change channels.  Yikes!  And also when I turn on the TV - the captions appear to be always ON by default. 

I think I have been over all the options since this TV arrived for Christmas, but I'm still hoping there may be a solution. I also did a reset/initialise to the whole setup and this led me to realise it was just changing the language (sound) that automtically turns on captions.  Which is crazy in my opinion 😉

@Murray Ronald Thanks for the feedback. Are you saying that a factory reset has fixed you issue, or you have turned OFF the CC permanently using the Accessibility setting options?

No the factory reset did not correct the problem.

After the reset I did the setup for France and the antenna tuning. Then I checked the TV worked ok. It works fine with no Captions-Subtitles.

I then changed the Primary Language to English (see photo), and immediately Captions are switched on every time I change a channel. You can see them showing in the photo.

If I go into the Parameters, Accessibilty, Subtitles and turn them Off then it is still NOT permenant. They do turn off for the channel being watched but they come back every time I change channels. There is no general option I can see to choose no language to turn OFF captions.

Just the fact of changing the Primary audio Language from French to English appears to activate some internal auto-caption on every time you change a channel.

@Murray Ronald Thanks for the feedback. That definitely sounds like a WebOS bug.

It would be best to report it directly to your LG country support.

Negative response from French LG support. They consider it "normal" to have to manually control captions that become active every time you change channels.  No indication and no suggestion of improving WebOs with the general overriding toggle for captions.  For this and other questions I am increasingly disappointed with French LG support.

I have another similar question open with LG support about Favorites.  The set does not save your Favorite choice (1 to 8 etc)  and you must choose it again every time you switch on.  In addition, the whole management of Favorites is pretty cumbersome. I am beginning to regret my 10 year old Samsung which was/is miles ahead on these points.  The Samsung got moved out to another room, but it may move back to the primary position soon !

Thanks for your previous help.

      hi guys, I have an LG CX65 bought a month ago. it's already happened two times that while I was watching a normal TV channel the fireworks screensaver kicked in. After the first time I did a reset of the TV, but it happened again today. Someone has experienced this issue? If could be useful to know, I have an Xbox series x, a ps5 and a soundbar connected respectively to HDMI port 1, 2 and 3 and the consoles always stays in sleep mode. they works great, no problem at all, and the hdmi cables are brand new.
      the first time the fireworks kicked in while a was watching a news Channel i has only the soundbar and PS4 connected tho.
      I hope you can help me out

      Hi,
      I have an LG OLED55B7A that has been rebooting randomly ever since I updated it to webOS 6.00.05 about 6 months ago.  I have noted there is a new webOS version 6.00.20 available.   Has anyone here had the same rebooting problem, and if so, did the latest webOS correct the issue?
      In general, my setup has the LG tv doing as little as possible - it is simply a display for my Roku box via my AVR, as the TV's interface and apps slowly became completely unusable about a year after purchase.  So, no ethernet, no WiFi, all services turned off, etc., and this helped with all of the performance issues, except the rebooting. 
       
      @ LG :  if you ever read this - you have done a TERRIBLE job of managing the software on these TVs.  webOS started off as a real alternative to all of the external set top boxes, but now, I will *never* *ever* buy another LG TV again, and I tell everyone I know to avoid them.  Worst product management in the consumer electronics industry in the past 10 years.
      Thanks fellow sufferers for any tips.
      Rob

      LG Continues to Push the Limits of Future Mobility with Advanced ADAS Technology

      SEOUL, Nov. 25, 2021 — LG Electronics (LG) and Mercedes-Benz AG were named joint winners this week at the annual AutoSens Awards, a global celebration of autonomous driving and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
      Every year the AutoSens conference recognizes companies for innovations in six categories of which LG was nominated in two: 2020 Vision Award and Hardware Development of the Year. The 2020 Vision Award was bestowed to LG and Mercedes-Benz in recognition of their influence, sustainability, contribution to the industry and inspiration to future technologies. The Hardware Development of the Year award was given to LG for successfully commercializing its front multipurpose camera technology beyond the concept stage. LG and Mercedes-Benz have been on ADAS camera technology for the past seven years, seeing the fruits of their labor commercialized in the new sedan which launched last month.
      First started in 2015, the AutoSens Awards celebrates the best innovations and innovators in ADAS and autonomous vehicle technology. Every year, representatives from automakers, suppliers, research labs and academia take part in AutoSens online communities, conferences and training modules, exhibition events and workshops to better understand the fast-growing autonomous vehicle industry, which could not exist without ADAS technology.
      Dr. Park Young-kyung, a Vision AI expert at LG, and Dr. Benjamin Marx of Mercedes-Benz’ multi-purpose camera team accepted the award and delivered a speech where they described the rewarding experience of working together for many years to develop a camera solution that improved real-life safety and met the strict European NCAP safety requirements. The state-of-the-art technology developed by the two companies is capable of taking advantage of deep learning and multi radar sensors to deliver significantly more environmental data to the central processing unit for analysis. More data results in better analysis and greater safety.
      “Demonstration value to our automotive customers is the ultimate reward for LG,” said Dr. Kim Jin-yong, president of the LG Vehicle component Solutions Company. “Being honored together with Mercedes-Benz is very meaningful to LG as we strive to contribute toward innovation in future mobility.”
