Question about Sharp Aquos LC-15B1U 15 in. LCD Television

1 Answer


On occasion, the picture of the TV is obscured by a strange black overlay that has a a typed web address, starting with "http://". If I change channels and come back to the channel, it will be gone but frequently returns. The TV is connected directly to the cable coaxial, there is no cable box. It uses Comcast, and I do not have internet service via the cable.

Go into your closed caption settings and most likely you have accidently activated one of the TEXT modes. Turn that off and your TV should be back to normal.

How do I find the network security key to my Belkin router?

That depends. If you have physical access to the router, plug any computer into a LAN port with a networking cable. Re-boot the computer.

Goto Start > Run (or type in the search box)


Hit enter.

You should see a black command prompt.

Type in: ipconfig

and hit enter. You will get three sets of four groups of numbers: IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway.

Open up your web browser and type in the gateway address in the search bar. It should take you to your router's home screen. From here you should be able to find the wireless section and reset the password.

The Veo Digital Studio will indicate "Digital Video PC Camera is not connected to this computer." Click "OK" to this message.

Click the "Quick Fix" button and then check in the "Disable Overlay" checkbox. Click "Fix it" and then close out of the Veo Digital Studio.

Plug your camera back into the computer and then try the Veo Digital Studio again.

Close the Veo Digital Studio and then start Yahoo! Messenger.

In Yahoo! Messenger, click on Tools->Start My Webcam.
