Sharp 46D62U incompatability

I bought the TV in April 2007 I have a cable box and DVD both hooked up to the HDMI and both worked great then one day watching TV the screen went blank and we got an error message on the screen stating "the auto output of the component is incompatable and to check it" the same for the DVD playerable . We hooked the cable box to the RGB cable and works fine. Not a cable issue has to do something with the HDMI ports

Re: Sharp 46D62U incompatability

Most likely a defective Main Board. I suggest calling Sharp 1-800-237-4277 to locate your local Sharp Authorized Service Center.

Hdmi not working

I don't know the particular system that you are using, but it could be a setting in "options" that is preventing you from using HDMI. It is also possible that your HDMI cable is broken or incompatible in some way.

I have a Bose home theater system and a Sharp Aquos tv. I'm trying to hook up the Bose dvd directly to the tv. Problem - tv only has HDMI input capability and Bose does not. I purchased a HDMI convert

You haven't given any description about the converter you bought. Please send me the model number and brand name of the converter did you bought. OK.

My volumn doesn't work when using the HDMI cable

Your TV and the cable box may not be compatible via HDMI or the digital audio format of the cable box is not set to PCM (contact your cable provider for information on how to change this on your cable box... too many models to speculate). The easiest solution is to use the component connections on the box and the TV (5 wire - Green, Blue, Red, White, Red). This will give you HD and eliminate to question of compatibility. I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

Television is not recognizing HDMI inputs

there is a possibility that there might have been a power surge sent over hdmi into the hdmi board on the tv. if on your model the hdmi board is seperate from the sine board then youll have a cheap replacement if not its gonna cost you roughly 300-400 is my guess.

call your repair guy

Sharp Aquos 46" HDMI problem

I have a similar problem. The Sharp TV aquos appears to be shutting down my blue ray player and dvd recorder when connected via HDMI. They work fine and never close down when I connect them via the rca cables either single video connection or a composite 3 cable rca lead. I have 3 HDMI inputs on the tv and the problem occurs on all 3. Any suggestions?

Cannot get a connection with HDMI input

When the tv won't scroll to the HDMI inputs, it means that the tv does not detect a signal on those inputs. This either means the tv has an issue and can't receive an HDMI signal(very unlikely) or there is no signal being sent from the source(converter box) The first thing I would do is unplug all output connections from the box except for the HDMI output and see if this gets rid of your problem. If not, I would be more inclined to think you have a problem with your converter box than with your TV. You could also try using the HDMI ouput of a DVD player if you have one.

HDMI->DVI cable won't work

Are you using a HDMI to DVI cable or are you using a HDMI to DVI adapter? Sometimes, though not on all products you have to go into the menu and select which out put your using for each source and whats going through it. You might need to go into your dvd player menu and tell it not to try to run audio through the cable. That way it's not trying to force a signal through the cable that cant be accepted by the TV. That might possible solve your problem for the DVD player. Let me know if it works

My Sharp Aquos 46" LCD

Digital inputs on Aquos TV's are "always on," usually the HDMI inputs and DVI inputs. As opposed to analog inputs 1, 2, or 3, are only activated once something is plugged in.
Try plugging in another HDMI sources into input4 or 5, if its still not working, the TV needs a new Main Board. Try calling Sharp 1-800-237-4277 and locating a local service center in your area.

Setting up sharp 46

Try to isolate the problem.

Try plugging in another source such as a DVD, is there audio? If yes, problem may be with the optimum box. If no, most likely a problem with the TV.

Also, if you are using HDMI with the HDTV box, make sure the box is set to output audio through HDMI.
