My new Sharp tv only displays in monochrome

My new (today) Sharp 42 inch tv only displays in monochrome. The menu comes up in color but when using RCA cables with my 10 year old satellite receiver I get no color. Tried different cables to no avail. Do I need to get a new satellite system or should the old one work with the new tv?

    Thanks for your response. Finally got the color to work with my dvd player, but even with dish customer service assistance couldn't get the receiver to work properly. Probably just a coincidence. Decided to upgrade. Thanks again...

It should work. You may want to try DVD player or play a VCR tape to be sure that it is the TV. If it is the TV and it is brand new from a retailer, I would take it back for a exchange.
If they will not exchange it, get in touch with Sharp and find a local Servicer that will repair it
under warrenty.
I hope this helps,

My new tv when I hit menu and try to adjust the color.The tint will not come up?

If you are using an HDMI source for the video, you might not be able to control certain video/color settings as they are determined by the video itself.
You may be able to change mode on your TV to 'gaming', 'movie', 'sharp'...

I have colored lines on the left side of my screen

Please do not try to repair it,it would cost you more than buy a new tV. I suggest you to buy a new one while today Tvs are affordable and you can own a bigger screen like 50" for just 300$.
good luck and Zkeep calm,the best on Fixya

I have a 42 inch sharp aquos and the volume doesnt work on the tv or satellite remote, what is the problem

Let verify first to narrow down to where the problem can be. First, check the on screen sound set up menu to make sure the speakers are not set to OFF. If the setting is OK, then attach the powered PC speakers to the Audio Line out RCA jacks to see if you can get the sound there, if you do, then the problem can be in the power amp circuits, if you do not get the sound at RCA jacks, then the problem can be in the sound processor circuit. Please post back what you find.

RCA TV lost Color

It sounds like your grandson found the "monochrome" setting in the menu on your remote. It may be in the "picture settings", "set-up" or "advanced" setting.

Sharp 56dr650 Dlp colorwheel for Mike miaer

I have a Sharp 56dr650. The color wheel bearing failed. Sharp cares not for its customers and won't even respond to my pleads for help in obtaining the replacement. So, with that said, I went to ebay and bought a vizio color wheel (Omega TV in Hollywood, FL). Color wheel is incorrect and colors are all blue as is, so I pulled the color wheel off and did the same from the old one-BIG note, the wheels are glass and fragile, DO NOT BREAK the old color wheel! I viced the old bearing and carefully worked the shaft out of the bearing (it is snapped into the bearing). The vice distorted the old bearing but it was trash anyway. The new bearing, I broke the new color wheel off and viced the shaft. I then pulled the old bearing from the wheel. I then carefully push the old shaft and color wheel into the new bearing (you will know when it snaps in place) asserting preasure ONLY on the metal center hub with my thumb. I had to file a new slot on the cast housing as the ribbon connector is about 1/2 inch shorter on the new bearing. I installed and it all works great!!! Saved from tossing a $2,000 plus tv out! SHAME ON SHARP! Never buy another Sharp product!
