    The TV is at my Mother's, so I can't check this immediately. Are you saying the DVD may not read closed caption's even though regular programing and the VCR do?

    Closed caption does not work with composite video and it also often does not work with vbi codecs used on dvd. This may be the reason why you cannot use it on dvds.
    If you have 'closed captio' option on your dvd device then you cane youse closed caption from dvd machine.

    Ok, it is an all in one. Magnavox does not provide information regarding this problem on your specific model. On samsung all in one tvs I experienced a similar problem. This was because you could not use closed caption with dvd codecs. I think it is the same on your magnavox. Check if in dvd options you have an alterative zoom in command for dvd picture.

Set closed caption options

It is done with the remote in the set menu, select closed captions and adjust to what you want, CC1 is most common for the feature but sets will in some cases have auto which if selected when sound is muted the captions come up instantly.

I get a black box in the middle of my picture when I change channels and sometimes just out of the blue

This is probably the text box function of the closed caption decoder. Find the closed caption button on your remote and turn off the closed captioning. The button may say "ccd" or "cc". You might have to turn it off in the menu.
I hope this helps.

No remote specific to Sharp combo to turn off closed captionning

on some models the menu button is on the front disguised as the volume up/down or channel up/down buttons. you have to push both up/down buttons on either one of these to bring up the menu.
