No Video to Sharp Aquos TV from Pioneer Receiver

No Video or Audio to Sharp Aquos LC-60LE550U TV from Pioneer VSX 1021 K Receiver. Hi There, up until I bought the new Sharp TV earlier this week, my setup had been working perfectly, I swapped out the TV only (previously Samsung HP-S4253) and the new TV will not pick up video from the AVR. All components are plugged into the AVR and then a single HDMI from the AVR to the TV. All components work with new TV if directly connected via HDMI, but will not work through the AVR to TV. The new TV has 3 HDMI Inputs and I have more devices than that connected to my system so I'd prefer to stick with connecting them all through the AVR and having a single cable running from the AVR to the TV. I've tried the following Connected devices directly to TV via HDMI (all worked properly) Swapping out all the HDMI cables with all new ones, Adding a powered HDMI switch between the AVR and new TV (in case it was a weak handshake issue) Adjusting settings on the AVR that had to do with HDMI control Adjusted auto-sense settings on new TV for HDMI input Tested via all 3 HDMI inputs on new TV (Power cycled all elements with each configuration and alternated power on order) Updated firmware on new Sharp TV Verified firmware was already up to date on AVR So far there's no configuration I have tried that will get video from the AVR into the new Sharp TV. The Sharp TV behaves as if there's nothing connected to the HDMI port. The AVR has behaved 1 of 2 ways when plugged into the TV and playing content. 1: acts as it would if the old TV were connected but turned off (initially does not produce sound, but after about 10 seconds, the sound from whatever source is playing will come through the speakers) shows whatever the sound mode of the content is on the screen (dolby, stereo, dts, ect) 2: does not emit any sound, AVR shows "stereo" mode on screen. System Components: Samsung HP-S4253 (old TV) Sharp Aquos LC-60LE550U (new TV) Pioneer VSX 1021 K - Audio Video Receiver (AVR) Xbox 360 Slim via HDMI Apple TV 3 via HDMI Panasonic BluRay Player via HDMI WDTV Streaming Box via HDMI (not currently connected) Motorola DVR from Comcast via HDMI

SOURCE: Video issues w/ Pioneer VSX-816 AV Receiver

Receivers generally cannot or will not convert from one input type to a different output. That's not to say there may not be some high end models around that do that.

I have this receiver and have it setup as follows. Monitor out Component, S-Video, and the Composite video channel (since I have surround sound I have no interest in getting audio to the TV since I keep its speakers off anyways) to their different inputs on the TV. Warning on some TV's if you plug in S-Video you cannot then use composite on that same input channel as it will override and disable the composite. Then you only need to choose the appropriate input on the TV when you switch sources. In my case Tivo is S-Video, DVD is component, and most of my older video games and VCR are composite.

Having a TV that allows you to change the labels for the input channels is helpful with teaching others that may be less adept, or a snazzy remote that you can program to do everything at once.

SOURCE: xbox elite connected to TV

Hook your Xbox to tv via HDMI, then hook TV to reciever through digital optical or composite cables. If you try to get your picture through receiver first, you may get picture and sound but, sound may be delayed and picture might not be the best. Bettter to run through tv first then provide sound to receiver.

SOURCE: Denon 1312 receiver composite video inputs do not work.

I'm having the same problem with my Wii output. The manual for the Denon AVR-1312 says that analog video signals (i.e. component/composite outputs from the Wii) are not converted to digital video signals (i.e. HDMI output from the rcvr). I'm running only HDMI to a projector, so the video signal is essentially lost. The fix appears to be to run an additional composite cable all the way to the projector. Sounds like your fix is the same. No Wii tonight! :(

Check which port you have the HDMI cable connected to, then go into the menu on the TV, look for it on screen and Enable it .

Good luck

Problems with Sharp Blu Ray Player "copy protected signal"

Possible solution: You set up your remote to run your amp from the TV control, using the AQUOS Link. Even though your amp is out of the loop, it's still recognized by the TV. You might have to reset the TV back to default and run the AQUOS Link again.

HDMI Compatibility

It sounds to me like you have a HDMI Control issue. It sounds like the DVD player wants to control the receiver. Try turning off hdmi control on the TV, reciever, and the dvd player in their setup menus.

Let me know if this helped,
