Re: Not getting a picture on my sharp 37' lcd 1080p tv
Not sure if you still need help but I will suggest a few things if you have not solved the problem or returned the unit.
Have you tried connecting it to one of the other HDMI inputs? Have you also tried using the component video out from the Blu-Ray to one of the RCA inputs on the TV to see if the player is working at all? Is there another TV that you can connect it to, to test the player? Without knowing the model of TV I am limited to solutions I can suggest. Try those and if you need more help, let me know.

component video output is not going to help you hook it up to a surround system. component video is just that - video. No audio signal is carried on it. You would be better served hooking your blu-ray player to the tv via hdmi cable and then running an optical cable from either your blu-ray player or your tv to the surround system (assuming your surround system has an optical input).
Check the back of your Sharp TV for the HDMI input. These
will be long, thin rectangular jacks labeled "HDMI." Most Sharp TVs will
include another label on those jacks with an input number ("Input 5,"
"Input 6" or the like). Remember that number. It will have a bearing
when you turn on the TV.
Connect one end of an HDMI cable to the input jack on the
Sharp TV and the other end to a compatible component such as an HD DVR
from your cable/satellite company or a Blu-Ray disc player. The TV won't
broadcast in HD if you can't connect these devices with an HDMI cable
(though it will still broadcast in standard definition using RCA cables
or S-video cables).
Turn on the TV and the requisite component (Blu-Ray, DVR).
Press the "Input" button on your remote. A list of signal
sources will appear on your screen ("Input 1," Input 2," etc.). Use the
cursor to maneuver down to the input number corresponding to the HDMI
outlet you just hooked up and press the "Input" button again.
Press the "Menu" button and maneuver the cursor to select
"Option." Go to "HDMI Setup" and press "Enter." Move the cursor up or
down to the desired item and hit "Enter" again. Then move the cursor
from side-to-side to select the proper setting. Hit "Enable" to allow
the Sharp TV to automatically recognize the HDMI signal and "Digital" to
get the proper audio signal from the HDMI cable. Then hit "Enter"
The Sharp XR-30X will display 720P and 1080i. The Blu-Ray player is trying to send 1080P which requires a handshake. It sounds like you might have to go into the Blu-Ray player and tell it to use 1080i.
Depending on if your surround system has a hdmi input or not. if it does you can connect the blu-ray player to it. If it doesn't have an hdmi input you will have to run the hdmi cable from the blu-ray to the tv then run a set of rca cables (red and white plugs) from the tv audio out to the surround systems' audio input jacks to get sound through the surround system. Most surround systems don't have an auxiliary input for another video device.
Okay, this monitor setup is a little strange. There is an "AVC" component with this monitor that you use to connect everything. There is a 4 cable string (power, s-video, DVI, display port) that connects the AVC unit to the monitor. You must have all external equipment connected to the AVC unit, not to the TV itself. The connections on the TV talk to the AVC unit. I will assume you will be connecting the Blu-ray player via HDMI. HDMI is on input 4 on the back of the AVC unit. hit the input button on the remote or the TV and select input 4. There is a way of customizing the inputs to read out what you have connected to them (ex. DVD, VHS, etc.) to make it easier to use. This should get you signal from your blu-ray
I have a similar problem. The Sharp TV aquos appears to be shutting down my blue ray player and dvd recorder when connected via HDMI. They work fine and never close down when I connect them via the rca cables either single video connection or a composite 3 cable rca lead. I have 3 HDMI inputs on the tv and the problem occurs on all 3. Any suggestions?
Well, there is a way to have the clearest possable picture. Get HD cable TV box that is HDMI compatable and watch only HD channels. Or buy a blu-ray player, hook it up via HDMI and only watch blu-ray disc in 1080p!
Put the blu ray player into the tv to see if you get a picture,if you do put it back into the amp then assign the hdmi input you have used in the amps set up menu,if you did not get a picture when hooked up to the tv run a cable from the video [yellow] out put to the video in put on the tv and then set the out put of the blu ray player.
