Question about Sharp Aquos LC-37GD6U 37 in. LCD HDTV

2 Answers

Sharp 37" LCD/TV will not remain programmed with DirectV. DirectV technicians have come out to re-program the Sharp TV. They simply say over and over again that it is a Sharp problem. They keep telling me to purchase a Sony and that Sharp TVs do not work with DirectV. I cannot believe this is a solution. They tell me to contact Sharp. Have you ever heard of this? Is there anything I can do? At this time my new Sharp TV sits on the stand and all I see is snow on my screen or just black.

The only problem Sharp and direct tv are having at the moment is with low audio. Sharp televisions are able to pick up direct tv just fine. Maybe something is wrong with the av board, hdmi board or tuner of this television. I would have to know how the direct tv receiver is connected in order to help you further. None hd receivers connected with coax cables have to be tuned in at channel 3.0 with the Sharp remote control by pressing 3 . 0 ent
Otherwise you would press the input button and scroll to the correct input with the arrow pointing down below enter and press enter.
If it is any more complicated than that then attempt troubleshooting with Sharp or service.

First of all any make or model tv will work with any directv receiver as long as it is connected properly. In my expierence Sharp TVs are compatible with all directv recievers. Is the directv remote not functionly properly with your sharp tv or do you have a black or snowy display. Your tv has to be on correct input in which the technician should of educated you on this instead of suggesting the purchase of a sony branded tv. Black or snowy display indicates the wrong input. Using the tv remote find a button labeled source or av or input and try pressing that button until you see a picture. otherwise call directv tech support at 800-347-3288 and demand that this issue is resolved immediately.

Why can't i see 1080p programs on my directv hd dvr? The test on the hdr says my receiver doesn't receive 1080p. My tv is a Sharp LC-62C42U which is suppose to receive 1080p!


Your DVR can't detect whether your TV can do HD or not. If the message is stating that your receiver (which is your DVR) can't receive 1080P, then you'll need to contact DirecTV for assistance. You may need to replace your DVR.

I'm looking for the remote code for this tv so I can program it into my sattelite receiver.


If you are using Direct TV, the codes are available at the direct tv website....

Directtv has a link on the TV using the menu for programming the remote control.

And if not directv, look up the model of your current remote, and see what the code for Sharp is ..

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

Programming my directv remote to operate this tv, codes dont work


I just programmed mine by using my direct tv remote...
Go to MENU on the direct tv remote
Then highlight HELP & SETTING and press SELECT.
Press SELECT on Remote in the left menu.
Simply follow the onscreen instructions to program your remote. IT IS IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE YOU HOLD ON AND SEE THE GREEN LIGHT ON THE DIRECT TV REMOTE FLASH TWICE, otherwise it won't work....which is what I think is happening in your case. Good luck.

I've had my series 2 Tivo for about 2 1/2 years and never found the correct codes for it. I think it works off of a list of TVs manufactures about 3 years ago.
