I have a Sharp LC 32D4U TV and the sound is not working.
I have hooked up a PS2, a DVD, and a VCR. And I have no sound. I don't have cable at the moment. The sound was working last night with only the PS2 hooked up and this morning with only the PS2 hooked up I had no sound. Help!

If you had sound from the onboard speakers before and lost it (without changing any settings), then try the main resets in the back by the a/v in and out jacks. If this does not work, call Sharp Customer Service (1-800-237-4277) and tell them that you already did the resets. There is a known problem with a heat dissipation pad for the onboard speakers and they will send a repair tech to replace the pad for free, even if you are out of warranty. At least that was the case with my LC-32D6U.

The good news is that you can likely make a simple change on the Apple TV to make it compatible with your existing TV's sound processor. Check out the following Apple support article for further assistance: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS5150
First thing- why not just use the HDMI instead of standard def cables in the first place?
If the RCA-video (yellow composite cable) is not producing color, 1 of 2 things may be wrong:
1. You accidentally connected the a/v cables [yellow white and red] to [red green and blue] component inputs or vice versa, or..
2. Your TV or DVD player is somehow set to the wrong video format. Check the DVD settings for video output format and video connector type. Format should be NTSC, and connector should be composite and/or s-video for the cables you're using.
If this is only happening when connecting the DVD player through the VCR, then check to make sure the same cables connecting the DVD player to the the VCR are also connected to the TV from the VCR.
BTW- if this is just to record DVDs to a VCR, I'll tell you it's not worth it. If your DVD player has an HDMI port, your picture quality will be so much better than if you're watching a VCR copy of one. Your new HDTV will look worse than an old standard def TV. Worse; I'm not kidding.
I hope some of this helps.
using the magnovox remote, reprogram the vcr's channels. set it up to use cable not air. when the vcr was unlugged it lost it's channel memory. don't buy new cables, you're getting a picture and sound so that means your rca cables are ok.
When you use component audio, it may shut off the side a/v audio settings. Try restoring all defualts (any changes you have made will be lost by doing so) according to p. 32 of the manual:
Menu --> Setup --> Reset --> Yes
When your turn on your TV, do you hear a faint popping sound from your speakers? If so, the heat sink underneath the audio IC has melted and is shorting the audio circuit. Its a complicated job, suggest contacting your local sharp authorized service center.
