You can have a number of reasons why it doesn't work. If you are using a cable or satellite box they may have a setting in their menus to disable or enable the cc. You may need to call them to work this out. Also the tv needs to be set to the correct cc setting or it may not work. Check witht the tv's owners manual for more info on how to turn on the cc.

Screen turns off and on Sony KDF E55A20

It is symptom of dying lamp and tv requires new lamp.
Existing lamp in tv has reached to end of its life span and causing that problem. If lamp has not been replaced in last 2-3 years, just put new lamp in tv to get it back in business.

You have selected a text option and there is no text available. Also pressing the display button on remote could turn cc and text on or off. the black box is a text option not closed caption. page 70-72 in owners manual might explain better.
