Question about Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Sound level & Picture size

I have just purchased a Sharp 42" LCD TV and have found that with the sound cranked up to full volume it is still hard to hear. Also when I tried to adjust the screen height (as the heads are being cut off and the writing on the bottom is also cut off) going through the menu Setup - Position the position on the menu is not accesable.

Thank you

Re: Sound level & Picture size

The screen height is easy, just press the "view mode" button on the controller and change the scaling thru that. As for sound I'm not sure on that, as I can hear mine just fine, plus I use a surround sound system.

How to add more Sound, to my Sharp TV , even in the background, when watching movies, sound is very low , think its dew to cable service? Or would just like to Add external Rear Speakers?

The easiest would be installing a surround sound or other sound system that will amplify the audio. Also, some cable boxes actually have a volume control that is only found on the remote, try turning this up.

Sharp LC 46D85U TV with NO SOUND (but perfect picture)

Sound like the TV has a defective audio board. Opening up the TV would most likely void the warranty.
It's best to take the TV back and exchange it for a new one. Personally, I wouldn't want to be stuck with a defective TV ( that just came out of the box ) that they are going to repair for you.

Sharp Aquos LC-65D64U Picture Quality

You need to change your TV's settings and enhancements. Directly from the store and out of the box, the settings are adjusted for easiest sell in the store. That means that:
Your contrast is cranked to 100. Move this down to 50 to 60.
Your brightness may also be cranked up high. Lower it to a level nearer the middle range but not so dark as to lose detail in the shadows.
Your TV is set on "Dynamic" or "Vivid" mode. Pick "natural" or "normal" or standard.
Your sharpness is at least on, if not cranked up. Turn sharpness down or off, and the same with "Edge Enhancement" and "VSM", all to off.

Lastly, I bet you upgraded size and you are now sitting too close to the TV. Roughly, if you are sitting closer than 130 inches (about 11 foot) you might do some rearranging or save some money and get a smaller TV.

Sharp LC-42D43U troubleshooting with the maximum volume sound

Found this on another site and it worked, had to switch back and forth a few times but it worked........

I have a Sharp LC-46D43U LCD TV. I think this is a entry level for large lcd tv's. With the volume all the way up at 60, my wife and I could barley hear the tv. I was playing around in the menu and some how have the volume at almost twice the volume. What I did was:
Go into the menu
Go to option
Go to output select
and change from fixed to variable and back to fixed. You may have to do this a few times.
Sometimes the volume goes loud after 1 try and sometimes it may take 10 or 20 tries.
But if I change any settings, even the channel sometimes the sound goes back down to where it was.
Has anyone done this, did it work for you. I don't know very much about electronics and I have now ideal why this happens.
I wonder if this is just something with my tv.

Volume issue

Very loud it never gonna be. It's a tv with very small speakers, but I have a lot of customers who complain about that and I checked first the signal source. Sometimes the sattelite receiver or cable box give a sound not so good. The best way to check it is to plug something (an antenna or just a 2 inch wire) in the coaxial plug to see if on the tuner is the same sound. I bet is gonna be stronger.
