Question about Sharp Televison & Video

2 Answers

I have a 19'' older (approx 1999) Sharp tube TV that won't show the cable channels even though the cable is hooked up to the tv (the cable has been tested with another TV and works perfectly). There is no menu button on the tv itself and I lost the remote. Please help.

Have you tried pushing both of the volume buttons or both of the channel buttons sometimes this will access the menu option or one accesses it the other navigates or you might have to purchase a universal remote and access it that way. Choose the cable option and the the channel search..........Try that!...........Thank You For Using Fixya.Com

Even with the TV in the wrong mode, you should be able to see some channels lower than 12. Try that first and report here what you see. If you can get a few in that range (2-12) but nothing else, then the TV is in broadcast mode not cable. You will need to change it to cable mode to get the remaining channels. You should be able to locate a universal remote for $5 or so that will allow you to get into the menus.

Sharp tv won't display cable picture (it only shows fuzz) but the netflix and DVD both work. The cable says no input service available. I am able to change the channel on the cable box, but on the tv


Your cable box might not be sending signal out to the tv. Would have to call service provider to have them test your box. Or, you can try unplugging your cable box, and then plugging it back in. Make sure all connections are secure and settings on your tv are accurate. 11_13_2013_3_31_52_pm.png

My RCA XL100 is hooked up to cable and works perfectly fine. We've had it for ages and the picture is clear, sound is beautiful, and it gets along fine with my universal remote. There's just one...


Some of their very old sets the video input was located on channels in the 90's; Try scrolling down from 99 to 90 to see if you locate the video input; this is just the way they did things in the older sets.

Before you rate this solution let me know what you find first.

I have just hooked up set top box to Sharp TV CX5182 and need to re-tune it? Can you send me instructions please as I can't find my operators manual. Many thanks.


By set top box do you mean a digital tuner box? If so and your tv is a newer flat panal than more than likely you wont need it anymore. That tuner will be built in. If this is the case than hook your anntena up to the new tv and go to the menu to do an auto channel search. That should do the trick. If it is an older tv and doesnt have the tuner then hook up the box the way you hooked it up before IE if you used cable than hook it up with cable if you used it with Composite cables(RCA) than use those the reason is some of those boxes you have to set that part up in the settings and that disabled the other output so if you had it set for cable than hooked it up with Composite(rca) nada, nothing would show. Once you hook it up and you see it on the screen then your good to go simple channel search from there. Also if you use cable then your tv needs to be on channel 3 or 4 if you use Composite(rca yellow red and white) then your tv has to be on the input channel that coencides with what input is hooked to.

I don't know how to set the tv to receive all of the channels


Enter the "menu" and select auto program. This will allow the set to search for all available channels. There is also a possibility that when you hooked it up the little wire center conductor in the cable might have been bent over when you hooked it up. Check that first.

Sharp HGTV will not show channels after EZ Setup

Only goes up to Channel 19.


Go into the TV's setup screen and make sure its tuning mode is set for "cable" (may say "CATV"). I'm not familiar with this set so I don't know exactly what the screen will say, but there should be some reference to channel setup, TV setup, tuning band, etc. It's probably set on "AIR" now.

Normally, when set for off-air reception, the set works properly for channels 2 through 13, and 14 up don't tune properly. Since you're getting channels up to 19, there may in fact be some kind of tuner problem. If the TV is already set for cable tuning, you may have found why the former owner was freecycling it. But check that tuning mode.
