Chances are that the composite inputs are not selected in the settings. You need a display connected to the MONITOR output to see what you're doing. Then press the SCREEN button (just below the RECORDER readout) until "Menu" lights up next to it. Then press the large round wheel in while keeping the MENU button depressed - this will bring up the menu settings on the monitor. Then press the MENU button in the "Dial Menu" section - while keeping it pressed, rotate the large round knob until "Setup Item 101" appears in the display- this is the Video Input Select area.



Release the MENU button to select Item 101 - then press the DATA button while rotating the large round knob until S-V changes to V (going from S-Video to Composite ). When you've reached the desired setting, press the SET button to store it in memory. Keep in mind that you have to do this on P1, P2, R and/or AUX depending on which channels you want to change. The factory default is S-Video, so that is probably how the machine is set on each channel. When you've finished setting the channels to your preference, press the SCREEN button to exit the menu.



I've found that the $20 (or so) investment on one of the many manual sites pays for itself many times over in "frustration control". I can attest that www.servicemanuals.net is quite trustworthy, and in most cases you can download and print the manual immediately. The sites that offer "free manuals" are more trouble than they're worth as you have to download all kinds of crap you don't need, and they pop up when you don't want them to and slow down your computer.

Hi, I bought an aquos lc-30hv4u and it has no rca jack etc, only two plug ins labled display input 1 and 2. I am guessing its just a pc monitor. How would I use it for cable tv video games etc


There are lots of inputs on the back behind the cover. Three inputs (1, 2, 3) have an S-video, composite video (A/V) and component video jacks. The cover will come off if you press the two top hook at the top of the cover. Then rotate the cover towards you. There are also a DVI-D port and 2 coax (antenna in) jack. The tuners included are for NTSC (analog OTA) and CATV (analog cable). The front of the PC (VGA) and a S-video or composite (A/V) video input (called Input 4).

Composite and component video jacks are all RCA jacks (as are the associated audio jacks for the input). Composite cables uses three RCA plugs on each end - yellow for video, red and white for Right and Left audio. Component video cables have three plugs on each end that just carry video (red, blue and green); the audio is wired separately with just 2 RCA red/white plugs. Match your colors from the device out to the TV input.

Changing inputs can be done with the remote or the input button on the top of the TV. The input button is to the left of the power and Main Power buttons.

Connecting your game system, cable system and all will depend on the units. For the best picture, use component video cables for mose set top box. Some cable boxes have a DVI port - use that if the box has that option. If they do not have component video out, then use composite or S-video cables.

The owner's manual is available from Sharp as a pdf: http://www.sharpusa.com/CustomerSupport/ProductDownloads.aspx?downloadtype=ownersmanual . Use the drop down menus as follows > LCD TV, Model not listed, LC-30HV4U then click Search. The picture of the inputs are on page 10.

I hope this helps.

Need owners manual for proper connections to tv w/direct connections I hsve a sony dvp ns300 cd/dvd player


The connection you use will depend on the TV. For the best picture, connect component video cables (not included) from the DVD player's output (to the right of the other jacks on the back of the unit) to the component video in of the TV. Then connect the Right and Left audio from output 1 to the appropriate audio input of the TV. (These may vary depending on the TV and other devices connected to the TV. They might be audio 1 or part of a group with the component video inputs.)

Otherwise you can use an S-video cable connection and the separate audio cable or the composite video cable (which has 1 yellow RCA plug for video and 2 others (red and white) for audio). Connect these from the output of the player to the matching input ports of the TV.

For TVs with only RF in, you need a composite video to RF modulator (converter). See a store like Radio Shack for this.

The manual is available from Sony: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=DVPNS300 . Pictures of the connections start at page 15 and more detail is provided from page 17 through 23. See the manual for details if you have a home theater system or other external speaker option.

I hope this helps.

I am trying to connect a DVD player with analog composite video connection with output to HDMI output. Audio works fine, however no video signal detected. Connected to front AUX connection and verified...


I would like to prove the video connector from the DVD to Aux (or wherever) works without upconversion to HDMI. Connect your monitor to the receiver's composite Out jack and see what happens with the DVD video.

Read and interpret the discussion on pages 22 and 100 very carefully to make sure nothing else is assigned to whichever video input path you choose for the DVD. Then try it somewhere else to see if that changes anything.

Trouble connecting plz help


This manual has a good section on connecting the camera toa TV.
It should be a matter of connecting the supplied cable to the correct port on the TV. Basically a red wire to a red input a white wire to the white input and the yellow wire (video) to the video in (yellow input)
Please note that you must connect it to a composite video input (not component input) and select playback mode with the TV on the correct input setting.
For a more specific walk through post your TV's modem number and I will be more than happy to give you a step by step.

As far as the drivers for your computer, let me know what operating system you have and I will posta link to them

Trouble getting a picture with a source selector


The input on your television monitor must be set to view the composite with the S video cable. You will not be able to view the component video unless you also have component video outputs going from the input selector to the television. After you have done that, you will also have to change your television input from "video 2" to whatever input you used for the component video hookup.
