HDMI is the High Definition Media Interface PORT on the back of a modern Flat Panel TV or Monitor.
The remote control should allow a selection menu to appear on the screen so you can choose an alternate signal input from another device or set top box.
Perhaps the TV senses that there is no signal on that HDMI cable plugged into the back port, so therefore it won't show it on the screen menu.
Turn on the device attached to the other end of the HDMI cable.
Several things may be happening. Most likely, you need to adjust settings on the cable box for HDMI output rather than component or composite RCA. The same may be true for the TV. Did you check your input source setting on the TV? Also, go into the Video Settings menu and see if the TV asks for types of cable input for video, and audio settings for audio input from the HDMI.
Connect a known working DVD player by using a new HDMI cable to HDMI INPUT 1 and check for signal. If you have a DISH or CABLE system box, connect that also with a new HDMI cable to HDMI input 2 or 3 and recheck for signal. Your T V remote will have an input selector to change between the different inputs on your T V.
Check the back of your Sharp TV for the HDMI input. These
will be long, thin rectangular jacks labeled "HDMI." Most Sharp TVs will
include another label on those jacks with an input number ("Input 5,"
"Input 6" or the like). Remember that number. It will have a bearing
when you turn on the TV.
Connect one end of an HDMI cable to the input jack on the
Sharp TV and the other end to a compatible component such as an HD DVR
from your cable/satellite company or a Blu-Ray disc player. The TV won't
broadcast in HD if you can't connect these devices with an HDMI cable
(though it will still broadcast in standard definition using RCA cables
or S-video cables).
Turn on the TV and the requisite component (Blu-Ray, DVR).
Press the "Input" button on your remote. A list of signal
sources will appear on your screen ("Input 1," Input 2," etc.). Use the
cursor to maneuver down to the input number corresponding to the HDMI
outlet you just hooked up and press the "Input" button again.
Press the "Menu" button and maneuver the cursor to select
"Option." Go to "HDMI Setup" and press "Enter." Move the cursor up or
down to the desired item and hit "Enter" again. Then move the cursor
from side-to-side to select the proper setting. Hit "Enable" to allow
the Sharp TV to automatically recognize the HDMI signal and "Digital" to
get the proper audio signal from the HDMI cable. Then hit "Enter"
I assume that you have set the input source selction as in Page 32 and HDMI 1 is solid and and not grayed out. If so check the Preferences menu and see if there is an option for power on set up.
Also look at page 51 about HDMI feature settings. I assume you turn the cable box on first before turning the TV on.
I am having a similar problem with the inputs. I have a cable box plugged in to cable antenna, DVD to video 6 using HDMI, Mac computer plugged in to video 7 - using HDMI (TV does not recognize this) and then Nintendo Wii hooked up to Video 1. My problem is that Sony only realizes 2 additional components like the video 1 (wii) and DVD on video 6, it does not play the other components. I have to niw manually switch the cables to have them work...
make sure you have Tv on that particular HDMI input .I believe video 6 or 7 .if you do check menu make sure that input is not blocked. or you might want to try the component outputs of cable box and connect that to a component input on tv to see if that is working,,i have seen these tv HDMI input board bad..lets hoe this is not the case..
