    My problem is similar. Sharp Aquos 37" TV and a Dell Laptop running Windows/XP Professional. S-Video to S-Video. I get momentary images as the computer boots, then just a black screen.

    Any thoughts?

You need to go into the display settings of your computer once the cable is connected and change it to a dual-monitor setup. I'm going to assume you have windows 98/xp, you can find the display settings in your control panel under the title of "display". it'll be under the last tab of the window called "settings".

Keep it in mind, in reality there are a ton of ways to run two monitors. Chances are the one that your going to find easily is to "extend" your desktop onto your tv, making them both run as one screen. Hopefully that doesn't happen to you (you'll probably find it extremely annoying). Also, some video players wont let you play videos on your TV because their worried that your going to copy the video onto vhs.

The display on your tv will be blurry with s-video, and you wont be able to read text easily (hd-tvs are different if your video card is new enough to use the hd-tvs features, and/or your hd-tv can run computer displays. You can purchase a computer monitor to hd-tv cable online or at computer stores) but videos and pictures will look good. And if you have problems and you accidentally switch your display to the tv and your monitor is off, turn off the computer and unplug the s-video, it should go back to normal although it may happen if you put the s-vid cable back into the pc.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I have lots of experience doing this.

I have a linux laptop connected to the TV via a vga cable (15 pin male to male) and it works, it's just like a bigger lcd. Only some videos don't work on the TV eventhough it's displaying on the laptop.

I have one.
DVI from TV to PC
On your tv remote, select's usually something like
one through
Make sure your pc is on when you select input, but make
sure it's off when you connect it to everyhting, then power up, no need to cause a spark. ;)

Sharp Aquos LC-37P50E connected to computer with HDMI cable


I got the chat , but some how it got disconnected.
But i would like to help you in this aspect.
HDMI stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface, and supports transmission of both audio and video in high fidelity.

First make sure these things,

Both your computer and your TV will need to support HDMI interface.
It's quite a recent thing in PC graphics cards, so you may have to resort to S-Video, DVI or VGA for the video, plus a 3.5mm stereo cable (or the optical TOSLINK equivalent) for the sound.

Let know your comments and i will follow up with the suggestions.
Thanx for using fixya,
Good luck.

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.
