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

How to hook up DVD player with TV


The owner manual for the player should have a diagram of connections but a basic hook up is:

1. look to connections on the player--most will have component (red,green,blue for picture and red and white for sound) match those outputs to the rear of the set with the same colored inputs.

OUTPUT from the player to the matching input on the set.

other possible connections include HDMI to HDMI if both have that, the HDMI can have sound issues but needs only one cable where component uses 5.

If you do not have the owner book Google the model number with "manual" to see if you can locate one.

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.

Toshiba REGZA 37AV500A LCD TV when using HDMI input picture and sound intermitantly blacks out for about 2 seconds


Does this happen with all the HDMI inputs. If only the one then jack is bad. Replace the main board. If on all HDMI inputs see if replacing the cable helps.

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.
