Sharp Aquos LC-37P50E connected to computer with HDMI cable
We are trying to project our computer onto our Sharp Aquos TV using an HDMI cable. Cant get the computer (new Gateway laptop with Vista) to see the TV. Tried ALT F4 to transfer the image and tried changing the resolution. The TV was bought in the UK and the Computer in the US.

Re: Sharp Aquos LC-37P50E connected to computer with HDMI...
I got the chat , but some how it got disconnected. But i would like to help you in this aspect. HDMI stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface, and supports transmission of both audio and video in high fidelity.
First make sure these things,
Both your computer and your TV will need to support HDMI interface. It's quite a recent thing in PC graphics cards, so you may have to
resort to S-Video, DVI or VGA for the video, plus a 3.5mm stereo cable (or the optical TOSLINK equivalent) for the sound.
Let know your comments and i will follow up with the suggestions. Thanx for using fixya, Good luck.

Use the HDMI cable on the Roku. The reason you don't have audio from the laptop is because the HDMI out on the laptop has no audio on it. You need to use a 3.5 mm audio cable to connect the laptop audio to the TV.
Your PS3 set itself above the max resolution your LC-C3237U. Most likely the PS3 is doing 1080P, but the highest the Sharp can do is 1080i. So do this:
1. Connect PS3 to TV (you can use the current cable or analog cable)
2. Turn on TV and set input to port PS3 is on. 3. Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable. 4. Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.
I have a similar problem. The Sharp TV aquos appears to be shutting down my blue ray player and dvd recorder when connected via HDMI. They work fine and never close down when I connect them via the rca cables either single video connection or a composite 3 cable rca lead. I have 3 HDMI inputs on the tv and the problem occurs on all 3. Any suggestions?
Your TV doesn't like your laptop I guess.
There should be 2 reset buttons behind your TV.
Press the reset button first.
If that doesn't work, try the system reset button next.
If that doesn't work, you'll have to call 1-800-BE-SHARP to help you with the possible software problem with the TV
