If you do not have cable or satellite, you DO need some type of antenna, which will connect to your converter box, which will in turn connect to your TV.

How do I change the resolution on my Sharp Aquos LC-69E88UN from 480i to 1080p. My satellite box is HD and the tv says its on 480i. Any help would certainly be appreciated

Do you mean the LC-60E88UN? The LC-69E88UN isn't listed at Sharp's USA web site.

Try a different channel; different programs will have different resolutions provided (particularly the local stations). How are you connecting the TV to the satellite box? If you are not using component or HDMI, then get the appropriate cable for whichever of those is compatible with your satellite box. Then change switch the output of the satellite box and switch the input if needed for the TV.

With DirectTV, there is a setup menu option to change the output resolution to the native resolution of the TV. So check that. Menu > Fav's and Setup (press Select) go to HDTV > Video tab. Set Native option to On. The only issue will be that channel changes will be slow as the receiver checks the native resolution. Dish Network probably has a similar feature but it may be in a different menu area. Check your documentation. Both companies have manuals online when you look up the equipment.

I hope this helps.

Have an rca digital converter box model dta800b1 and a phillips universal remote can i program it so my box get the channels

Find the user guide for your universal remote and use the RCA cable tv/satellite codes, and one should work for your RCA DTA800B1 converter box. My Sharp Aquos remote liked the RCA satellite code.

I have the same preoblem...need manual

Manuals are available for printout in PDF format from the manufacturer, or with a password through
As I said in a post to another person, make sure that you're routing the TV signal into or through the VCR. If it's from Cable/Satellite or Digital Converter box, it will simply need to be routed with a coaxial cable, it's a simple fiberoptic cable with a copper or gold prong that you screw onto the back. If you're unable to do this, the box for your broadcast/satellite/cable should have a three-way output, color-coded white, red, and yellow. The red and white are for stereo sound, and the yellow is for the video signal. You can route that output into the three-way input on the back or front of the VCR. This can be technically more challenging, depending on how it needs to have the input setup, for instance needing to be on a specific channel, but routing the cable through the input and output for the VCR is the simple way, and should give you no trouble.

I don't have a manual and I can't get rid of CC

The first thing that you need to do is verify how you are connected. I could better troubleshoot your problem if I knew that so for now I can just give general advice. #1, What do you have connected to the unit?, are we dealing with coax cable? Antenna? or cable box/satellite box. If you have all except cable box, the cc function will be controlled by your sharp remote and if you press the cc button a number of times, you can turn it off. Everytime you press that button, it changes (ex. 1/4, 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, and OFF..which is what you want). You can press the DISPLAY button on your sharp remote to check the status of you cc. However if you do have a satellite/cable box, your cc is NOT being controlled by the tv, but is being controlled by your cable/satellite reciever and the settings need to be adjusted there. I recommend contacting your cable/satellite provider for assistance with turning it off within the cable/satellite box settigs. #2 There is a place on the web where you can find a manual for free that even sharp wont tell you . This is their canada website and the same manuals that are for the us models are here, it is all the same literature. hope i resolved your issue

Our new Sharp LC-32SB24U has a box that comes and goes on the upper right hand corner that says audio and flahses the words stereo and audio and then goes away..any ideas?

Change up your connection. If you have a cable/satellite box, get rid of that coax cable connection and use red white and yellow RCA cables to connect and that will take care of the problem. if you dont have a cable box(but i bet you do), you will need to run your cable through another device because you cant do anything to turn that off. another device such as a vcr, cable box, or a converter box. hope that takes care of it, good luck 2u

My ge tv digital ready?

Your TV is NOT digital ready. IF you do not have cable or satellite, you will need a converter box. If you do have cable or satellite you have nothing to do or worry about as the cable or satellite box will automatically do the conversion for you. Hope this helps

Does the Sharp Aquous LC-13E1U receive digital or analog broadcas

It looks like your TV is not HDTV capable, so you will need a box when the conversion takes place next year unless you have cable box or satellite TV receiver.

Wait message

I had the identical problem with my Sharp LC26SH10u. It turned out to be a burnt out high voltage transformer (there are eleven of them in my set; one for each backlight) on the inverter board. I bought a new inverter board on E-bay and it took care of that problem. No one on this forum seems to know how to reattach a ribbon cable on the LCD panel itself, though. Good luck with your set and be blessed!!!
