Check with another source or cable. you likely have a bad hdmi input, this would require a new SSB module to fix.

What kind of audio system do I need to purchase for this set. The speakers are just terrible.


I changed my audio equalizer setting to "POP" and I got much more pronounced separation. Also, make sure the SURROUND is set to "ON" in your settings or simply hit the SURROUND button on the remote that came with the TV.

The "AUDIO OUT" jacks on this set apparently only work when the input is set to "TV". I wanted to hook a couple of external speakers up as well and found they would not work when hooked up to HDMI to a cable box. I mean how many people by a large flat screen like this if they don't want to view HD? Like about zero! The AUDIO OUT works only when TV is selected for INPUT

A work around is to use the headphone jack and hook a couple of external speakers up to that.

If you want to go for a higher end home theater sound bar system so that you can route both DVD and CABLE box through it via multiple HDMI's you can choose from SONY, Phillips etc.

I wrote to Sharp about the AUDIO OUT issue. It's rediculous that they only work when TV is selected for input. But you might try using the heaphone jack alternative if you find a set of speakers that sound good to you. Hope this helps.

I have a toshiba 42HL196. With HDMI cables hooked up, I have no picture when attempting to watch cable TV or use my DVD player. Everything works when I hook up using RCA cables. What is my problem?


By no picture, do you mean that you have sound? If yes then ensure that the tv and the DVD player/cable box is set to the same resolution as that of the tv. That should resolve the problem.

No sound when hooking up DVi to HDMI...


This is normal, when you go from HDMI to DVI, the sound does not get transmitted. You need a separate cable to go from audio output on the computer to Audio input to the TV. There are speaker (headphone on laptop) jack to RCA audio cables, you could also go with digital audio or even optical out if your computer and TV both have the input and outputs.

Just bought 42" Aquos but has bad picture quality in Analog & Digital cable


There is no secret to adjusting the picture settings on this unit. My unit is perfect with Hi Def signal and better with Blu Ray. I assume you are using HDMI cables and have tried a new HDMI cable to eliminate the possibility of a bad cable. If you have done this then the unit has a problem and I would take it back or contact Sharp to get an auth. service center involved.
