Question about Sharp 27L-S180 27" TV

2 Answers

Digital tuner or not?

Our family TV is a Sharp 27" tube 27L-S180 made in 1999 that is in perfect working order.  We don't subscribe to cable and instead use rabbit ears for reception.  What I can't figure out from the company or from the labels on the back is whether we will need to buy a digital-to-analog converter box for this television.  The owner's manual is lost.  Anyone know the specs on this model?

HI. you will need to purchase the converter box for this set. the DTV standard was put into affect after 1999 and, your tv was not fitted with a integrated DTV tuner.

Yes in July I do not recall the date you will need the digital tuner for this TV, A rule of thumb look at the manufacture date on the back of the set if its earlier then 2007 you need a digital converter. There are two types of digital QAM signals one is called TRUE QAM and the other is STANDARD QAM the old standard was foe things like DVD's and the like and not OTA "over the air" I hope thisdoes help but you do got a good TV there but if you buy a converter you be gald you did!!!

Please do not shoot the messanger and rate a good rateing as we do not get PAID to answer these free questions :)

No picture on TV and can't get autotune table up


The TV is obsolete now.

You could go to Best buy and get a digital tuner.

I got one. Actually worth it. Perfect picture, but its like letterboxed.

You could subscribe to Basic cable.

I'm finding it strange that this far into the situation, that people don't understand
that their tuners are useless now.

Get a digital tuner.

Or a Brand NEW High Definition TV!!!!!

What you're trying to do shouldn't work unless the VCR has a digital tuner in it or your cable company still hasn't converted over to digital as of yet. You will need to get a digital cable box from your cable company.

Connect the av cables to either the front or back of the television. I believe the front is av/video 2 and the back is av/video 1. You have to choose either video 1 or video 2 from the television's menu in order to access these parts of your television.

Connect the cable box to the other end of the av cables and you should be all set. You would change channels with your cable remote and always leave the Sharp television on video or

What you're trying to do: Connect the cable to where it says in on the back of the vcr. and connect the av cables to the vcr where it says out. You will have to do a channel scan on the vcr.

Stuck on 1 channel


Get a cable box from the cable company it will be cheaper than repairing the tuner. Then you use the tuner from the cable box instead.
