I just bought a 42" phillips lcd and when I hook up an HDMI cable to it the picture is terrible and the sound crackles from the speakers. Is there a problem with the input or is there some adjustment that I need to make???

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 the same problem. i think they just get old, i solved the audio problem by taking the cove off the back and disconnecting the speakers, i now just use PC speakers, works grand. i haven't solved the HDMI problem yet..
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.
