Does the Sharp Aquous LC-13E1U receive digital or analog broadcas
I have the Sharp Aquous and when a local television station did an on the air test to see if your TV needed a digital converter box this television did not pass the test. I thought it received digital signals and now I'm confused. Do I need another box on the last TV in the house that doesn't have a box of some sort when the digital transition occurs?

Unfortunately, the Sharp Aquos LC-37G4U TV is an HDTV-ready monitor. It does not have an ATSC (digital OTA) tuner. The A/V Center box (TU-GA1U-S) that came with the TV has two NTSC tuners. You'll need the over-the-air ATSC to NTSC (analog) converter box or a stand-alone ATSC tuner DVR set-top box to get most OTA channels. There are only low power NTSC tuners that continue to broadcast; you will only receive those stations if you are close to their transmitters.
if your seeing static on a digital tv , your problem is "Not" in the tv its in the signal source (cable box, sat scram,Etc)
digital tvs cant produce "static" displays because they don't receive wide spectrum signals like analog TV's did (carol-ann knows this!) there "filters" are very narrow and specific , this is also why there range is dramatically smaller than analog tvs
also everyone by now knows that tv stations can no longer transmit in analog format (in Usa), G4 cell phones got there band space
1. what country are you in
2. does your country have digital or analog air television stations.
if your country does not have analog television you may not have options for a clear signal, you need an antena outside the house if you do not have a clear line of sight to the tv transmitter for analog television.
Also it may be a good idea to do a channel search from within the television menue.
On the back of the TV look for the connector marked Ant/cable. This is a silver connection with threads on it. If you have a digital indoor antenna, connect it there. Same goes if you have an outdoor antenna. Now go to the setup screen and select AIR for antenna type. After that do a channel search and select digital and analog channels. Let the TV find all the stations it can. When it's done searching, it will show a picture. You may need to aim the antenna to get a better picture .
antennas are not analog or digital, just VHF, UHF and they typically connect to a RF coaxial jack on the TVs rear panel. 75ohm silver round jack. Select in your TVs menus, AIR when you want over-the-air TV stations and do a new channel scan to pick up local channels.
Most locations are real hard to get local stations using indoor antennas. If you are in a location where you do not have cable, I would try either a outside antenna on the roof or go with Direct TV Dish / Dish Network system.
I hope this helps,
Good Day, Jamievass;
Please disconnect the NEW DVD Player, does analog stations come back? What input are you using; RF, Comp, hdmi? If ok try using another input or you may need a main bord that processes the signal.
