PC Input Cuts out after DVD starts playing

Hi! I have a Sharp LC-20B8U. I was on Input 5-PC, playing a DVD when the screen froze. I rebooted my PC then restarted the DVD. Now, after I start the same DVD playing, the screen gives the 'Input not compatable' message. I did not change any settings or equipment. The screen is fine when I open the DVD program (Power DVD) and get the main meni screen. BUt as soon as I hit 'Play' the screen cuts out. I checked all cables and they are tight. Any ideas how to fix this? I powered everything on and off twice. Thanks for your help!!

Re: PC Input Cuts out after DVD starts playing

Try another DVD disk. If this does not work, then it is possible that the drivers became corrupt, or the drive, or the controller has gone defective.

You try uninstalling the drivers and the drive for the DVD drive, and then re-installing them back again.

Nothing on screen when DVD inputs are plugged into our Aquos.

Check that the input you are plugging the DVD into on the TV is actually selected as the TVs input. Try using a different input and also different input types/cables. Most DVD players will have HDMI and also either component or composite type outputs. Try the different cable type and make sure the TV is looking at the correct input. Do you have sound?

Sharp LC-32sb24u hdmi not working

You have to tell the TV which HDMI input to use. ie you should be able to press a button on your remote to do this. On my tv we can choose between 4 different HDMI inputs via the remote.

The resolution that the Xbox is pushing out is most likely too much for the TV, and it switches off because it can't physically display the signal.
Try hooking the xbox to another TV (if you have one) and setting the resolution to something in the neighborhood of 420p so that you can see the screen. After you do this, take it back to your TV and switch it slowly up in resolution until it blinks out. When it blinks out, you know that the resolution is too much.

Change it back to the next lowest resolution and play away.

We are trying to set up wii-through the dvr to play on Sharp LC-PD50U-unable to get it to work.

Connect the Wii directly to the TV either using the HDMI cable or the Hi def cable(5 RCA connectors) that come with the Wii. Then select the input number on the TV to get a picture .

I have a Sharp Aquos LCD TV Model LC-32BX6M , when I try to connect a new generation Android TV Box HDMI Out to TV's HDMI input the Android Logo appears and after sometime the screen goes blank t

im not sure but could it be a comparability issue with the device and the wake up signal from the device to the tv? android systems use a Linux based file system, so the problem may be in the tv's input settings. hdmi input from the device to the tv. and then go to tv input mode and see if putting the device in another hdmi port doesn't work.

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.
