When you are trying to use the TV as a receiver, are the RCA jacks disconnected? Sometimes leaving a device connected even though it is not in use will cause the TV to look for the sound from those jacks. Try removing them and if the problem persist, go back through the audio menu settings through the remote control and make sure the source audio is the tuner instead of an external input. Hope this helps.

A no picture and no sound problem could not be a tuner problem. To test if it is a tuner problem, there must be a sound and picture using the rca input at the back of tv. I would suggest to resolder tuning section not the tuner itself. Thanks for using Fixya.
This depends on how you have it hooked up. You're going to need a Tuner. A simple method is to connect only the Yellow RCA cable (or composite cables) to your T.V. Then connect Red and White RCA cables to the Tuner/Surround sound system you're using on which ever input you're comfortable with. I.E. CD/AUX/TAPE..etc. Change your tuner to that input, and you should get your surround sound through the speakers. Make sure you change the input on your T.V. to what ever video source you got the wires in. If your tuner allows you to hook up a video source to it, you can just hook it up to the tuner and run the DVD player off the tuner only. The first option helps avoid confusion if your tuner isn't set up for any other devices to play video through it.
two ways of connecting VCR with Analog TV with DTV tuner. DTV tuner (RF) output to VCR (RF) input,VCR (RF) output to analog TV (RF) input. turn DTV tuner on (VCR should have a TV\VCR switch that makes signal coming from tuner BYPASS VHS right into TV) note:: change channel FROM tuner.You should be able to record by placing a blank tape and pressing RECORD. 2ND. DTV tuner, VCR, should have a RCA in\out connections...Audio & video.You need a RF\RCA bypass switch. It has a INput with RCA connections to a RF signal out that goes to the RF Input of analog TV
Compare internal and external TV tuners that are designed for use with computers. See if the tuner supports HD, DVI, component video, S-video, stereo, surround sound or other features you might like to use. Ensure that any internal devices will work with the expansion slots in your computer.
Purchase a regular TV tuner if your monitor has S-video, coaxial or RCA inputs. These can be seen at the back of the monitor. S-video should be clearly marked; coaxial is a large round port, and RCA inputs are typically smaller and brightly colored. If your monitor does not have these inputs, purchase a special TV tuner designed just for computer monitors. If you would like to use the tuner with your computer and monitor, choose an internal TV tuner. If you're using your computer monitor as a television on its own, select a stand-alone external tuner. Install the internal TV in your computer, if applicable.
Connect the TV tuner to the monitor with the proper cable. Select S-video as the connection option if both your tuner and monitor support it. Choose RCA component video as your next option. Use coaxial only if your monitor and tuner do not have the aforementioned connections. If your monitor has none of these connections, use a standard VGA cable to connect the tuner and monitor.
Connect the tuner's audio outputs to your monitor's speakers. If your monitor has no speakers directly attached, connect external speakers to the TV tuner. This can usually be achieved using regular audio or RCA cable.
Install an HD antenna high on a wall if you will be picking up free over-the-air television signals with your monitor. If you will be using satellite or cable TV with your monitor, simply plug the satellite or cable set top box into the tuner using RCA or coaxial cables. Then connect the tuner directly to the monitor.
Set your tuner to the channel you use to pick up television stations. If you receive free over-the-air television, this channel will be 3 or 4. If you have satellite or cable TV, this station is determined by your television service provider. Check the documentation that came with your system to determine which channel to set the tuner on. You will probably need to change channels using the satellite or cable box rather than the TV tuner.

If your Sharp television has RCA jacks, you may use them through your VCR. Your VCR would have to have a tuner and then you may use this as a means for getting a signal. Newer VCRs and DVD players generally do not have a tuner. Thanks for asking!
Sounds like it came with a TV Tuner. The PC should have come with software pre-installed on it. If not, find out who made the TV Tuner and they usually offer paid (or free) software for their TV Tuners.
I use the sg 540 equalizer for cd and tuner. (I have two of them) I also use the sa 940 to power my sound. On the tuner input of the amp, i used standerd rca cables and connected it to the output of the equalizer. then i connected rca cables from the input of the equalizer to the output of the tuner. this only works when the top equalizer button is pushed on. hope it works for you.
Three (3) possible ways: 1. use the audio out of the TV (if available) which would normally be red/white RCA and connect to any of the free INputs of your DVD surround sound system; 2. remove the cable INput of your TV and feed it to a tuner such as those in a VCR or any other device (some DVDs have TV tuners also). The VCR's Video OUTput would go to your TV while the Audio OUTput would go to any of the free INputs of your DVD surround sound system; 3. if your cable uses a box/decoder and has the yellow, red & white RCA, its a matter of splitting the red/white signal to feed both your TV and DVD surround sound system or simply remove them from the TV and feed them to the DVD surround sound system.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Hi, if I understand you right, your TV has only one (1) input method and that is an S-Video and you would like to view regular TV or cable channels. Two possible ways of getting to watch: 1) Get yourself a TV Tuner that will accept antenna or cable input and whose Video output will be fed in to your S-Video. Normally (but not always) output is a yellow RCA jack but of course some would have S-Video output also. Then you would need a cable to conect the output of the tuner to the input of your TV. Cables also can be S-Video to S-Video or RCA to S-Video. Of course, you would need another RCA pair (stereo) to feed the audio to your amp for the sound. 2) Another is to use the built-in TV tuner of an old VCR. Same procedures follow. Hope this works out for your. Please let me know how it turns out. Cheers.
