Some of the old sets input/tv-video are only on the original remote.

If no buttons exist on the set you may be out of luck---One possible thing to try depending on age of set:

Some if you scan the channel button down below channel 2 you may find the input is on a channel for example 91-99.

Good luck and hope you get it working.

    Thank you for your help. I thinkI found the av channel but can't get picture on screen. Looks like maybe horizontal or vertical need adjusting but can't find a way to do that. I do have the originalr remote but can'g figure out how to adjust it to seeif that is the correct channel.Had no problem with itaslong as I could use the cable remote but since downgraded cable service all I have to work with is the original tv remote..

It sounds like the tact switches (on the control panel) are defective.....This usually happens after some one cleans the screen with a spray and it drips onto the board, Or they went bad on their own.

SOURCE: I am trying to install

Yes these are the same yellow white and red ports that you would use to connect your DVD player. I believe this television has one port in the front and one in the back. I might be wrong but I believe video 1 is in the back and video 2 is in the front. If you have tried video 1 and video 2 making sure you have pressed the video/input button to select the proper one after connecting your Roku then you have done everything properly. Make sure to try a different RCA cable to make sure it is not the cable that is causing the problem. Also try the Roku on a different television because if it is working on a different television with the same RCA cable then you'll know that it isn't compatible with this particular television.

How do i get my roku to work on sharp aquos?


The Roku is an external media player designed to function with all TVs. Depending on the model of Roku you have you need to conext the video out whether it be RCA (the yellow red whit cables) or HDMI into the corresponding input on your sharp TV then with your remote or the input button located on the side of the TV you need to change the TVs input to the the same input you plugged your Roku into.

This sounds like a basic setup, so correct me if I made any wrong assumptions.

You have 2 "output" devices: a Roku and a cable box. Both have HDMI outputs.

You have 1 "input" device (your TV) that has 2 HDMI inputs available.

So, you need one HDMI cable to connect your cable box to your TV. Remember what HDMI port it's connected to - the back of your TV probably says "HDMI 1" and "HDMI 2" or similar. That's the "input name" of your TV.

Connect your Roku to your TV with another HDMI cable.

Now turn on your TV and use the remote to change between the inputs. Most remotes have a button that says INPUT or SOURCE (or sometimes a dumb little icon with no writing). If you press that it should change inputs. Usually, each time you push the button will cycle to the next input, so sometimes you have to hit it a bunch of times until the on screen menu shows the input you want. Most TVs will automatically switch to the selected input after a few seconds, so you don't have to push any buttons on the remote to tell the TV to change inputs.

If "at the same time", you meant actually watching both Roku movies and your cable at the same time, you are talking about a TV feature usually called "picture in picture". That should be possible, but will depend very much on your TV. I'd suggest checking your TV manual, or calling the company's 1-800 number and asking them to talk you through it.

How do i manually program my channels on older tv without a remote


Nothing you can do without the original remote. One cannot get into the setup pages. Replacement remotes usually don't work on this point either. They are missing this special setup button. In order to watch DVD, VCR, connect them with a SCART cable. When you switch on the player, the TV will detect this and go automaticaly to this input. If connected with RCA plugs, you can choose the input with the program Up/Dwn buttons on the TV set itself, going "lower" than channel 1.

WE JUST BOUGHT ROKU , HOOKED IT UP , CAN'T GET ANYTHING ELSE TO COME UP


Hi,

You must match the TV's input connections and the Roku output on your remote. This means if the Roku's output is connected to your TV's "HDMI 2" (or A/V 2, etc.), you must be able to select HDMI 2 (or A/V 2, etc) on the TV - either with your remote or pressing a button on the TV itself.

Sometimes, the TV will skip over unused inputs when it was first set up. This is done to reduce the number of button presses to go from say "HDMI 1" to "HDMI 4" by programming OUT the HDMI 2 & HDMI 3 choices.

You'll need to program IN the input that your TV uses to connect the Roku if it isn't already available. You MUST connect cables properly if not using HDMI. RGB is Red-Green-Blue and must be connected to RGB jacks at the Roku and TV for a picture and the the White & Red (left and right) audio must connect the the corresponding Red / White audio jacks - or it will provide strange results.

Make sure the power plug is connected to an outlet that is ON and connected to the power jack on the Roku box itself. Unless you have a defective Roku box or TV, it SHOULD work. You can try using a different HDMI or A/V jacks on the TV to determine if it is the TV jacks or not.

Good luck!

No place to enter Roku activation code


  • Connect the Roku box to your television in accordance with the procedure outlined in your Roku box's manual.

  • Turn on your TVicon1.png, and change it to the input channel for your Roku box. Once you see the Roku box's welcome screen, press the "Select" button on your Roku box's remote control.


  • Select the type of network connectionicon1.png you have (wired or wireless) on the network screen, and provide the necessary information that applies to your network. Once a network connection is established, you should see the activation screen with an activation code.

  • Visit the Netflix activation website on your computer (www.netflix.com/activate) and log in to your account if asked to do so. Enter the activation code on your television screen into the text box on the activation page. The Roku box will now activate.

    Sorry about the delay Barbara, I was looking for your clarification comments on the other question page. I didn't realize that you posted this information here in a brand NEW question box. No problem though, this will work just fine too. I will post the information on both question pages so there is absolutely no confusion.

    First of all here are the links to each of the USER'S MANUALS for your particular system components:

    SHARP AQUOS TV - MODEL # LC52D64U:


    http://files.sharpusa.com/Downloads/ForHome/HomeEntertainment/LCDTVs/Manuals/tel_man_LC42_46_52D64U.pdf

    To view the Owner's Manuals with Operating Instructions for each device, just use your mouse to click on the links, which are the underlined and highlighted text just above. Each one of them will open a new web browser page for you automatically and allow you to view the information indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.


    You did not mention exacly what model of DirecTV receiver you have, so first of all, I will just give you the generic instructions for connecting that device to your TV using an HDMI cable connection.




    DIRECTV CONNECTION TO TV


    Make sure your TV and DirecTV receiver are turned off before making any cable connections.
    Now connect the COAX cable from the satellite antenna to the COAX IN jack on the back of the DirecTV receiver.
    Now connect one end of an HDMI cable to the HDMI OUT jack on the back of the DirecTV receiver.
    Then connect the other end of that HDMI cable to the HDMI INPUT 5 jack on the back of your TV.
    See page 10 of your TV's USER MANUAL for a detailed labelled diagram of the rear input connections on your TV.


    Here also is a link to a short video which demonstrates this basic HDMI connection procedure:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7P-yayRJ6c&NR=1




    If you want to test your system at this point, you can. Just plug in the power cords to the DirecTV receiver and your TV, then turn them both on.
    In order to see the output from the DirecTV receiver, you will need to select the INPUT 5 input mode using the INPUT button on your TV remote.
    See page 11 of the TV manual, button number 7 on the remote control button layout diagram.
    Keep pressing the INPUT button repeatedly until you see INPUT 5 on the TV display screen.
    At this point you should be getting an input signal from the DirecTV Receiver on your TV.
    That completes the DIRECTV to TV connection portion of the system hook-up procedure.



    SONY DVD PLAYER CONNECTION TO TV


    Your Sony DVD player should have come with an S-VIDEO cable and set of RCA cables (yellow / red / white ) included.
    Here is a link to a picture of an S-Video cable in case you need to see one:


    http://amazingbestsellerstore.tk/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/31nOF2e5DXL.jpg





    And here is a link to a picture of a set of 3 color RCA cables:


    http://www.cameratron.co.za/images/productcables/cables/rca%20to%20rca.jpg




    Connect one end of the S-VIDEO cable to the S-VIDEO OUT on the back of your SONY DVD player.
    See page 8 of the SONY DVD Player manual.
    Then connect the other end of the S-VIDEO cable to the S-VIDEO INPUT 2 terminal on the back of your TV.
    Now take colored RCA cables and one end of the red and the white cables into the LINE OUT (AUDIO L / R) red and white jacks on the back of you SONY DVD Player.
    Then take the other ends of those cables and plug the red and white plugs into the INPUT 2 (AUDIO L / R) red and white jacks on the back of your TV.
    In order to see the output from the Sony DVD Player, you will need to select the INPUT 2 input mode using the INPUT button on your TV remote.
    See page 11 of the TV manual, button number 7 on the remote control button layout diagram.
    Keep pressing the INPUT button repeatedly until you see INPUT 2 on the TV display screen.
    At this point you should be getting an input signal from the Sony DVD Player on your TV as long as the DVD player is turned on with a disc inserted.
    This completes the SONY DVD PLAYER to TV connection portion of your system hook-up procedure.


    MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD PLAYER TO TV CONNECTION

    I will describe the connection procedure using the basic 3 color (yellow / red / white) cables which were included with the unit at purchase.
    COMPONENT VIDEO cables are also a slightly higher quality option but would have to be purchased by you separately.
    Take one end of the 3 color RCA cables and insert the colored plugs into the corresponding colored VIDEO OUT and AUDIO (L / R) OUT connections on the back of the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD Player.
    YELLOW cable plugs into the VIDEO OUT connector.
    RED and WHITE cables plug into the AUDIO (L / R) OUT connectors.
    See page 7 of the MAGNAVOX manual, METHOD 1.
    Now take the other ends of the 3 color RCA cables and plug them into the corresponding colored INPUT 1 connections on the back of your TV.
    YELLOW cable plugs into the INPUT 1 - VIDEO IN connector.
    RED and WHITE cables plug into the INPUT 1 - AUDIO (L / R) IN connectors.

    In order to see the output from the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD Player, you will need to select the INPUT 1 mode using the INPUT button on your TV remote.
    Keep pressing the INPUT button repeatedly until you see INPUT 1 on the TV display screen.
    At this point you should be getting an input signal from the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD Player on your TV as long as the DVD player is turned on with a disc or tape inserted and playing.
    This completes the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD PLAYER to TV connection portion of your system hook-up procedure.
    Recording content on the VCR from an outside source will require additional connections which are described in detail on page 6 of the MAGNAVOX manual.

    This completes the most basic hook up of your entire system using the cables which were supplied stock with each piece of equipment. As I stated, other options are available for purchase and the instructions for connecting these types of cables are all in the various OWNER'S MANUALS provided above.


    Please comment back here to this page if you have any details to add, have any questions, have difficulty accessing the links, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.

    I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.
