your TV do not disable close caption in composite mode. It may in component mode. Please make sure that the close caption in your TV menu is not set to "text"
Please be advice that CC :Text is the ONLY one that can give you a black box.

You need to turn on closed captions through the menu of your PVR. To have it on all the time, turn the box off, press menu on the front of the box, and scroll down to captions.
This should fix the problem

Try a master reset on the TV. With the TV powered on, prss and hold down the up button on the remote (there are 4 buttons grouped together for up down left and right) and while holding down the up button, press the power button on the TV. The unit should power off and then turn back on and ask you to select a language. Let me know if this helps and be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

SOURCE: Close captioning on HDMI
The TV will not display closed caption with HDMI input. It must either over-the-air (antenna) or composite input for the TV to manage CC.
To get CC with HDMI from your Comcast DVR, you need to configure the cable box. Instructions can be found here:
If you want CC all of the time, this works well. But since you must power-off the cable box to change the setting, switching CC on and off is a real pain.
Your set-up is similar to mine (Sharp Aquos 46" and Comcast DVR). I have the composite output from the cable box going to a DVD-recorder and on to the TV. Whenever I need CC (usually to catch some mumbled dialog), I just rewind the DVR, and switch the TV input to the composite input. Then I switch back to HDMI to continue watching in HD.

I woke up this morning to try to win this fight I have had for days with my damn tv, our 3-year-old daughter somehow turned on the CC on the DVR box and we had no idea how to fix that.
I read the suggestions listed here and I wanna say a big huge THANK YOU to the person who suggested that to turn off the cable box thgen hit menu button and it would be there...your so right! THANK YOU again......
