Aquos lc-26ga5u to mac mini

I have been having difficulties connecting my sharp aquos lc-26ga5u to my new mac mini with a DVI to HDMI cable (DVI to mini & HDMI to TV) I purchased from the Apple store. As I turn on the mini, I see the loading screen for the mini on the screen, and then the screen goes blank. Reading through Sharp's manual, it refers to PC connections only with DVI and stereo minijack cables. Any ideas on how to make this work?

Adjust resolution on your mac mini to something the TV supports. Usually 1080 vertical resolution or below

Can I hook up my Toshiba laptop to my Sharp Aqous TV, if so what connections do I need, ?S-video? I have an SGA connection on my laptop but not on the TV?

If this is the exact model Sharp Aquos television you have then you would have to have a laptop that has hdmi or dvi. You can try S Video on a laptop but the laptop's resolution would have to be so low that most laptops cannot accommodate this. You're right; this television does not have a VGA (RGB cable) input.

You need to set your MAC video resolution to the native resolution of this TV in PC mode, please read your manual to find out what that is, if the resolution is set too high, the TV will not be able to display it.<br /> <span style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial"><a href=""></a></span><br /> <span style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial"> </span><br /> <span style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt; mso-fareast-font-family: 'Times New Roman'; mso-ansi-language: EN-US; mso-fareast-language: EN-US; mso-bidi-language: AR-SA"><a href=""></a></span>

I have a sharp aquos and an older mac mini. hdmi connection. video output is incompatible with tv

There's nothing you can do, not at a reasonable price anyway.

The early years of HDMI were a complete mess in regards to compatibility.

My advice is just don't think about it.

Have DVI cable plugged in how do i get audio

There should be a HDMI input on the Sharp Aquos with audio inputs next to it. Run a audio cable from the audio out of the satellite box to that audio in next to the HDMI input.
I hope this helps,

How to use a sharp aquos as a monitor with my laptop

Hi. You haven't said how you have connected your laptop to your TV so I'll give you a couple of options:

1. VGA to VGA (This cable is a 15-pin cable like the one you would use to connect a computer monitor to the back of the computer box itself). The Sharp has a VGA connection at the back.

2. DVI to HDMI. If your computer has a DVI output, this would be the best connection.

On your remote, press menu.
Use the left/right arrows to select option

Then use the arrow up and down to select input source.

Depending on the TV you have, you will either see the actual name of the connection (ie. HDMI, DVI, VGA) or you may need to select Input 1, Input 2, etc... depending on which connection you used. The input number may be labelled on the back of your TV.

If none of this works, please let me know your model numbers and I can provide you with instructions specific to your models.

Sharp Aquos LC-37P50E connected to computer with HDMI cable


I got the chat , but some how it got disconnected.
But i would like to help you in this aspect.
HDMI stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface, and supports transmission of both audio and video in high fidelity.

First make sure these things,

Both your computer and your TV will need to support HDMI interface.
It's quite a recent thing in PC graphics cards, so you may have to resort to S-Video, DVI or VGA for the video, plus a 3.5mm stereo cable (or the optical TOSLINK equivalent) for the sound.

Let know your comments and i will follow up with the suggestions.
Thanx for using fixya,
Good luck.

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.
