You Have to check The owners manuals for both products to see if you are using the correct switching method to use your television with the surround sound.There is usually a setting for each unit that must be set for the correct signal path to the amplifier output to the speakers. The way to test this out is to use the first input on the surround sound unit for the television. Hook- up the output of the sound for the television to first input on the surround sound amplifier.Set the surround sound amplifier to the first setting and test to see if it is working. If still not working check the televisions sound output section in your owners manual and see if you have to set the output to the line out sound and turn off the television speakers output.If this is true make this adjustment with the on screen menu and test the sound again.If still no sound output there may me a problem with the output sound section of you television. You should then check the Sharp website for the frequently asked question and troubleshooting sections to see if similar problems have been posted for this problem and have answers.If all this fails you should contact customer service for both units and ask for technical assistance for your problem. Hope this helps you with your problem.

Sharp flat screen no sound after moving it from downstairs to up


Try the main resets in the back by the a/v in and out jacks. If this does not work, call Sharp Customer Service 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. My understanding is that a surround sound system would bypass the problematic part of the sound board which is why yours worked in your basement.

Getting stereo speakers to work with flat panel tv


if you hook the low-level audio-out from the tv to an input to the stereo unit, whatever you play on tv will send audio to surround/stereo reciever unit. look on back of tv for red &white AUDIO OUTPUT terminals. plug red/white audio cables from tv to the back of your stereo & plug into audio input of an open source on stereo (tv/video,aux. in,etc.) good luck!

No sound on Sharp Aquos 37' LC-37D4U


Almost all intermittent audio or audio failure problems with Sharp Aquos LC**D4U, LC**D5U, LC**D6U, and LC**D7U televisions are the result of a relatively simple design flaw involving the heatsink pad compound used on the Tripath TA-2024 amplifier chip (IC2502) found on the A/V board. This compound has a fairly low melting point and, over time, tends to seep out from between both top and bottom heatsinks onto the legs of this chip as well as onto circuitry immediately surrounding it. Further, over time the seeping compound also becomes somewhat conductive creating bridges which short the audio amplifier circuit causing everything from intermittent audio to complete audio failure.

Fortunately, in almost every case audio can be completely restored by cleaning the old compound from both top/bottom heatsinks and from both sides of the PC board in the area immediately surrounding the chip (I used rubbing alcohol which worked quite well). Sharp has issued a service bulletin addressing this issue (LCDTV-194) wherein a ‘2502 Heat Kit’ is specified. This kit is Sharp Part Number: PSPKIT663WJZZ and is available from circuitcity.partsearch.com for $19.95. However, it’s entirely possible to get by with the heat pad only, Sharp Part Number: PSPAZA663WJKZ for only $9.95. Please note that board replacement for this problem is almost never necessary, so if you’re working with a repair technician be sure and insist that he/she be certain to try cleaning the old board and replacing the aforementioned heatsink pads before charging you for a new board.

If one is reasonably familiar with electronics disassembly/reassembly and is willing to take their time, this can even be a DIY project. It is possible to find ‘important service references’ by simply entering LC26D4U (the 5, 6, and 7 series are very similar, and this information covers all screen sizes) into the search field at eserviceinfo.com. This will greatly aid in disassembly/reassembly of the TV, as the A/V board is somewhat ‘buried’ under other boards. Please refer to post # 373 at avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=647174&page=13 for pics of the information detailed here.

Particular thanks are owed ‘Aureius’ of the AVS forums for his research efforts concerning this issue !

Can't get analog stations


Good Day, Jamievass;
Please disconnect the NEW DVD Player, does analog stations come back? What input are you using; RF, Comp, hdmi? If ok try using another input or you may need a main bord that processes the signal.

Good Luck, big IRISH.
