Re: Picture not HD quality while watching HD channels

Make sure you are using an HDMI video cable for optimal picture quality. Also, you must be using an HD reciever.

How can i adjustment my picture quality sharp aqu40d78un to get rip of the fuzzy look?

Your Sharp Aquos 40D78UN is a 1080P HD display, and will provide razor sharp, vibrant images if provided with an HD signal.

HD signals (those that are 720P, 1080i and 1080P) are only available from the following sources:

1) Local "off air" (antenna) HD broadcasters (providing HD content) delivered via the coaxial antenna terminals.

2) An HD source such as a stand alone Blu Ray (BD) Disk player, PlayStation 3 optical (BD) disk, HD service provided by DirecTV, Disk Network, Local CATV provider or other satellite service delievered to the TV via any of the (3) HDMI jacks or (2) Component RCA jacks (RGB). Satellite and CATV providers offer both SD and HD service. You must have HD service to watch programs in the higher quality HD format.

3) Computer signals delivered via the PC (VGA 15 pin) jack - such as movies or video in HD or Netflix HD.

It is important to note that any signal source (regardless if 720 or even 1080) that is delivered to the TV via either of the (2) "A/V" RCA jacks, will be limited to SD or 480i resolutions.

An HD picture is only possible when the source is HD, it is brought to the display over HD cables to HD capable jacks on the TV and, the display is capable of at least 720P. If any one of these variables is missing or substituted, the picture quality will be reduced significantly.

CNet has a helpful review and discussed HD signals. it is only a couple pages in length and may help you understand even better. I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

I have a 1080 with 120 and my picture is not clear. If it's not a hd channel it really is terrible and if it is hd channel it still is not in full focus. The picture is not sharp. I am really disappointed...

I am assuming your set is new. Ask for it to be serviced under warranty. This sounds like your set is defective for some reason.
LCD TV sets are known for their exceptional sharpness and performance when having a good quality signal source, and especially with an HD programs.

New Sharp Aquos LCD 46 TV

If you hooked up the satelite box to your tv Automaticly the Satelite box is the one who pick up the channels (from the satelite)
In this case your tv is acting as a monitor only. Try to connect your tv with HDMI cable or COMPONENT cable for best picture. Don't use RF antenna input to hook up your Satelite Box. Hope this Helps

Have tv plugged in on hdmi cable but picture only showing in 480i how do i change to 1080p

You need to verify that you have hd service with your tv provider first. Then, you need to find out which of your channels are being broadcasted in HD because not all of them will be in HD. HD cable and satellite is not capable of broadcasting in true 1080p. Some of them have on demand services that stream 1080p movies, but thats about it. Channels can only go up to 1080i(which is still beautiful hd). Make sure your HDMI cable is version 1.3 and you should be good...good luck 2u

Sharp Aquos Audio Intermittent

This is a problem with the ATSC channel's reception. Usually switching to another channel and back solves the problem.

LCDTV - Picture problem

Do the lines only appear on the Cable box input? It maybe be a problem with your cable. Try to isolate the problem.

Do you see the lines on all sources such as your DVD player as well? If you press the MENU button on the Sharp remote, do the lines go through the menu as well? If yes, it is most likely a TV problem.

A bunch of lines sounds like it is most likely a problem with the connection with the LVDS cable, if not that, then a defective main board.

There isn't really much you can do about it now.
Since the TV is less than a year old, I suggest calling Sharp to locate a local authorized service center.

Picture quality

I think you are right about the backlight. You need to replace the backlight tube or, if you can, replace the TV. Good Luck.
