Re: le40m86bdx picture not sharp

I have a two and a half month old Sharp, LC-19SK24U-W. It was fantastic with fantasic, clear, beautifully colored picture until two weeks ago. All of a sudden, the picture starting getting darker and darker. Nothing had been adjusted from day one when I set up contrast, etc. This comes and goes but most of the time is an issue. I can make it a bit lighter but then it is so fuzzy and grainy it is a very poor picture. Also, while this began, one time the television turned itself off and then back on without a power surger or anything.

Sharp aquos 60" TV has sound but only a gray picture. Was fine then, went gray. Help?

Do you see the menu when you press the menu button. If the menu looks ok, then you may have a problem with one of your inputs. Try a different input port and change the TV to that input. Also try a new cable and try a DVD input or other video source to help isolate the problem.

I'm hooked up tp Dish Network an hit wrong button on top for volume and now pic is gone. in lower left corner says no signal., but dish is working, just no picture on screen

Hey there, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service here. It sounds like you are going to need to change your TV back to the proper input or channel. If the TV remote is not working to change the channels you can also use the buttons on the front of the TV. First look for a button listed as either input, TV/video, source or AUX. When you press this button it will start cycling through all the inputs available, make sure to cycle through them slowly because it make take a couple seconds for the picture to come in. If you do not find a picture on any of the inputs you are going to need to try the different channels. Normally for a TV where the receiver box is the TV should be set to channel 3 or 4. Once you have found your DISH Network picture you will want to make sure to push the SAT button on the DISH remote so that it doesn't change the TV channel again. I hope you find this information useful and if you have any further questions or concerns please let me know. Thanks. :)

The sky box is on and the is on correct channel but no picture or sound.....i have tryed rebooting the sky box and turning tv on and off

Check all of the cable between the tv and the box are correctly inserted by removing and refitting them. If you're using scart leads look at the pins in the plugs: if any are missing or bent replace the lead entirely. If that fails look at your dish to ensure that it still seems OK: they can get knocked off-aim by window cleaners for example and I've even known the LNB to be stolen (the box of electronics on the front of the dish).

If that doesn't work then you need to phone Sky for further troubleshooting.

My dvd won't play in color. I hooked it up using the red, white and yellow cables, but the picture is black and white. it worked with my old TV, but now I have a new Plasma. Thanks

I expect your new TV is looking for an S connected signal at least. You are connecting it using AV leads? Can you configure the TV to AV input instead of S video or Y-C?

Make sure the input is hooked in properly first, also make sure it's coming out from dish to inputs on tv and turn tv to the input you are hooked too and then try turning on dish and off to see if you can see anything

Cannot get a clear picture with dish network I have a Clear picture when using DVD

Sometimes the input/channel for the DISH Network and the DVD are different, and if using the same for both, then you will get an unclear picture on one. If at TV1, the tv will need to be on channel 3 or 4, and possibly an input such as video 1 or 2. The DVD player may be on a different input, such as video 3, or even just on channel 3 only. If at TV2, the tv needs to on channel 60 or 73. When using the DVD, try putting the tv on channel 3 or 4, that is normally the channel that the tv needs to be on. Also, make sure that the DVD player is not on while you are trying to watch just the dish.

No antenna tv signal

Your dish remote should be set to the code for your TV. Then you will be able to control the channel number, not just up/down, as well as volume and maybe even the input. But do try to get a real remote for your TV so you can get to its menus.
Meanwhile, use menu+menu to see the channel being output by the Dish receiver. (Must be a 622/722... based on the 60 you listed.) Try to find an unused UHF channel number that your set does have in its up/down list. Match Air/Cable setting of Dish and TV. The Dish output is analog (NTSC) although the tuner(s) only accept digital (ATSC).

Picture not clear

Get a HDMI lead it makes HD tv look how it is suppose to look HIGH DEFINITION. You'd think it naturally is suppose to look great but these people are rip offs you need that additional peice which should make it spot on for you. Try stores such as maplin & currys. Get the gold plated HDMI lead better quality

Good luck

I can't change channels,message on TV says,'' no input available''.

Have you tried reprogramming the Dish remote with the Sharp code? That might bring back the TV control. Another option is to use the TV's control panel menu button (if available), go to the setup choices and have the TV scan for channels while the Dish receiver is on. It will find channel 3 then, and probably nothing else, so the set will stay on that channel.

SHARP aquos 1080p HDTV: VCR image flickers when playback

I have the same model TV and the following worked for me. I am using A/V cables attached to Input1 on back of the TV.

On your Sharp TV remote control:
1. Select the Input (1-5) that is attached to your VCR.
2. Go to the menu and select options.
3. Change your color system to NTSC.

This should stop your picture frome flashing on and off.

You still may have a issue with the screen colors. I don't know of a way to address this, other than to make the picture monochrome.

Hope this helps.
