Sharp Aquos LC-45GD7U HDCP

Input 4 of this TV is HDMI and works fine with HDCP compliant devices I attach to it. Input 5 is DVI and is supposed to be HDCP compliant yet I get no picture when attaching devices to it. I have proven the devices and cables are good. When I look at the Sharp set up menus, Input 4 has an HDCP config option but Input 5 does not. Am I missing something here? Is the Sharp manual wrong about Input 5 being hdcp compliant?

SOURCE: Mitsubishi DVI input does not work

DVI input only supports 720p, so if you have your settings at 1080i or 1080p in your cable box or dvd player, it won't show a picture.

SOURCE: Non-HDCP Compliant Error

The HDMI cable was causing "Display connected non-HDCP compliant" error message to appear.
When I reconnected my DVD to TV using regular cable with 3 color connectors(i don't know what is the proper name for that cable) that error message no longer appears on my screen and I was able to watch my movie normally.

SOURCE: Problem connecting my PS3 to my Sharp Aquos LC-C3237U LCD TV

Your PS3 set itself above the max resolution your LC-C3237U. Most likely the PS3 is doing 1080P, but the highest the Sharp can do is 1080i. So do this:

1. Connect PS3 to TV (you can use the current cable or analog cable)
2. Turn on TV and set input to port PS3 is on.
3. Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
4. Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.

I have a Sharp Aquos LCD TV Model LC-32BX6M , when I try to connect a new generation Android TV Box HDMI Out to TV's HDMI input the Android Logo appears and after sometime the screen goes blank t


im not sure but could it be a comparability issue with the device and the wake up signal from the device to the tv? android systems use a Linux based file system, so the problem may be in the tv's input settings. hdmi input from the device to the tv. and then go to tv input mode and see if putting the device in another hdmi port doesn't work.

Hdmi will not work only use of component cables will.


Hello

The HDMI[1] input on your TV receives digital audio

and uncompressed digital video and audio from an

HDMI device or uncompressed digital video from a

DVI[2] device.

This input is designed to accept HDCP[3] program

material in digital form from EIA/CEA-861/861B-

compliant[4] consumer electronic devices (such as a settop

box or DVD player with HDMI or DVI output).

The HDMI input is designed for best performance

with 1080i high-definition video signals, but will also
accept and display 480i, 480p, and 720p signals.

To connect an HDMI device, you will need:

• one HDMI cable (type A connector)

For proper operation, it is recommended that you use

a short HDMI cable. You should not encounter

difficulty if you use an HDMI cable shorter than 16.4

ft (5m).

HDMI cable transfers both video and audio.

Separate analog audio cables are not required (see

illustration below). Some CDVs (video CDs) may

not output digital audio signals. In that case, you

may hear sound by connecting analog audio cables.

However, if you connect analog audio cables with

this connection, the HDMI terminal on the TV will

not receive the HDMI digital audio signal and you
will hear analog audio only.

To ensure that the HDMI or DVI device is reset

properly, it is recommended that you follow

these procedures:

• When turning on your electronic components,

turn on the TV first, and then the HDMI or

DVI device.

• When turning off your electronic components,

turn off the HDMI or DVI device first, and
then the TV.

To connect a DVI device, you will need:

• one HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable

(HDMI type A connector)

For proper operation, the length of an HDMI-to-

DVI adapter cable should not exceed 9.8 ft (3m).

The recommended length is 6.6 ft (2m).
• one pair of standard analog audio cables
OK

You have it hooked up right. I found something on page 26 of your manual. Look at the HDMI setup section. I think that maybe the problem there. It's an audio select option for input 5.
Let me know if it works.

My Sharp Aquos 46" LCD


Digital inputs on Aquos TV's are "always on," usually the HDMI inputs and DVI inputs. As opposed to analog inputs 1, 2, or 3, are only activated once something is plugged in.
Try plugging in another HDMI sources into input4 or 5, if its still not working, the TV needs a new Main Board. Try calling Sharp 1-800-237-4277 and locating a local service center in your area.

No AVC media box


You should be able to use this with only the DVI connection as just a large monitor. You can use a DVI to HDMI adapter as I do believe the display is HDCP compliant. Many AV receivers will upscale to the necessary 1920x1080p resolution that the display needs.
