Why is there sound but no picture?

According to the owner's manual page 2.7 (and this is an OLD [by HDTV standards] set), the TV can only handle input resolutions of 480p or 1080i on the composite inputs. Most HDTV programming today is 720p with some 1080i and 1080p on certain channels (like some Discovery shows about nature). It is possible that your set will not process the 720p signals being sent.

How can i connect my sharp lc-26sh10u hdtv to laptop

Sharp had a standard VGA socket on it?, with an adaptor for connecting Component to it (via unused pins). but presumably you simply connect via a VGA lead and select the PC input on the menu
ure HD is cool on a computer monitor, but it's nothing like a huge HDTV.

How you do this will depend primarily on your PC and your HDTV. Lucky for us that they both share some common interfaces. The most common interface is DVI for computers and component for HDTVs. You have a few options here. S-Video and Composite won't work because they only carry SD signals and what fun would that be?
Before we get started I want to mention that all TV's are subjective to some overscan, yes all, but some more than others. At the very least 2% and at the very most 10%. Normally you don't notice, but when displaying your desktop on your HDTV even a small amount of overscan is noticeable. If you plan to watch movies and other videos it won't bother you. If you are planning to surf the web or play video games it can be more intrusive.

If you are one of the lucky ones who have a DVI port on your computer and a DVI or HDMI port on your HDTV. You can buy a180px-video_standards.png cable and set your computers output resolution to one that is supported by your HDTV. That is This seems pretty simple, but unfortunately it isn't always that simple. HDTVs and computer monitors don't always support the same resolutions. All the video standards are covered in this image. It is confusing but useful. The main thing to pick up from the image is that PC's don't use the same native resolution as HDTVs. Some HDTVs can accept standard PC resolutions like my Sharp AQUOS. To see which resolutions your HDTV supports check out the manual. Most companies have their manuals online so if you don't have yours head over to the manufacturer's website to look it up.

As you can see from the grid my HDTV supports most resolutions, the other great thing about this TV, is that there is no overscan at PC resolutions, but there is at normal HDTV resolutions. Unfortunately this is not the norm, but if you are one of the lucky few then you can grab a cable and connect it.sharpres_small.jpg

You can use VGA, component , DVI or HDMI to carry HD signals. Since digital is generally preferred you should use either DVI or HDMI. If your HDTV has a HDMI and since no computers have HDMI yet you will need to use an adapter from DVI to HDMI. Lucky for us, HDMI uses the same signaling technology as DVI.

Before you plug in your DVI cable from your PC to your HDTV be sure to set the resolution to one that is compatible with your HDTV. If your computer monitor and your HDTV only share one common resolution, set it to that until after you get a picture on the HDTV, then change it to the desired resolution. When possible always try to use the displays native resolution. For example my Sharp AQUOS's native resolution is 1280x768.

If the desired resolution isn't available from the display controls of your PC then you will need to add it. You can use apstrip_small.jpg great piece of software called Powerstrip to do this. Install it and then add the desired resolutions. To add a custom From here you can add a preset or user defined resolution. If your TV only accepts 1080i then use "1920x1080i 60hz". resolution to PowerStrip go into display profiles, then "Advanced timing options", then choose "Custom Resolutions". User defined resolutions are beyond the scope of this guide. The best article I have ever read on how to do this, is at the AVSForum. So check it out, but keep in mind that Powerstrip includes most of the HD resolutions for you, so you don't have to copy and paste the timings in yourself as described in the article. If you are a Mac user look for DisplayConfigX. Linux users need to add the custom resolution to their xorg.conf, you can find help here.
Unfortunately for most of us, it isn't this easy. Most HDTVs only accept a few resolutions and some only have component input. Since most PCs don't have component output, it can be a bit more difficult. Your best bet is to either buy a video card that supports component output like a Radeon X600, or to buy a VGA to component converter. Since the convert costs as much as a good video card, it usually makes sense to go with the new Video card. When shopping for a video card keep in mind that sometimes the adapter doesn't come with the card, even though the card supports it. My Radeon 9700 required me to buy an additional $29.99 adapter to unlock the component functionality. Luckily most of the newer Radeon cards now come with the cable. As always when using a cutting edge video card be sure to use the latest driver. But don't be scared to roll back a few versions if you have problems. The latest Radeon drivers have HDTV resolutions built right in, so there is no need for Powerstrip. You can still use it to tweak your setup if you want, not to mention the other 100 things it is good at. If you end up using the VGA to component adapter, then you will need Powerstrip to setup the correct resolution. Don't be afraid to try different resolutions to find the best one. I find that because all HDTVs have overscan, non standard HDTV resolutions can help to eliminate the overscan. It is important to keep in mind that it is possible to break your TV by sending it the wrong resolution. So make sure you understand what you are doing before you start to experiment too much. I wouldn't use any resolutions that is not preset without first reading the thread over at AVS.

Try it ..All the best

Panasonic hdtv 1080i CT-36HX41E..Can you hook up a PC to the tv for the monitor?

You can connect this to your computer if you have an S-Video output on your computer. This is the only supported connection on your TV. This model doesn't have a VGA, DVI, or HDMI port.

Hope that helps!

Hi i have Sharp 25K-S100. how can i know whether it is HDTV or not. I dont have any manual. and I just want to buy one cable to connect my laptop to TV. Please adivse

Howdy, if it has a S-video input ( the round one with the pinholes) and your PC has S-video, then that will deal with the video. Sound runs seperately through either the red and white or the headphone jack at the tv end to the audio out port on the PC. Your TV does not likely have a VGA input, but if it does, then it is the same as the VGA standard monitor output on your PC. As yours is an older model, it may be tricky to get a decent picture from your PC.

How do i use my tv as my pc monitor. so i can watch movies from my computer ?

The problem may be the resolution. Your TV will run 1920x1080. You might try changing the resolution to that and then try connecting to TV again.

PC connections do not transmit sound unless the system is equipped with the newer sound-format inclusive video cards and running HDMI.

You will need to use the computers speakers..if you have any.

No Audio Out through the Optical OUT jack

First and foremost when the chance comes along buy a Harmony remote. Your spouse will love the simplification. A couple of things, On the tv with the optical hose connected and the other end in your hand, do you see the light. Its not a laser and eye safe. Should be a red glow. If not, implies two things the tvs optical is bad or it needs to be enabled via tv menu audio settings. If you see the red glow, then its a protocol issue. Verify your tv is setup on the proper audio mode that your receiver is wanting to see. Probably PCM. I am not directly farmiliar with the tv, but using the dish receiver as a reference (you know its working) set the audio options on the tv similar to the dish receiver. IE pcm, dts, etc.. Let me know thanks

Sony bravia to my P/C

You need to wire up the audio from the computer.
The 15 pin cable is only the video, next to the input on the tv should be a red and white phono connector which should say audio or line in, get a cable that has a headphone type jack on one end and 2 phono red and white plugs, connect the headphone jack into the back of the pc, should be the green audio out where you would usually connect pc speakers, then the phono plugs into the back of the tv and insert them into the phono ports on the back of the tv that say line or audio in. Turn the TV to PC and thats it.

hope this helps
