Sharp TV switches to "input 2"

I bought a used Sharp 32" TV last fall (the "big" kind, not LCD). Worked fine for a month or so, but now it switches itself to the "input 2." Seems to happen primarily when it's cold or raining outside... but not every time. It can go weeks without the problem, and then it starts up again. Thoughts?

I'm simply guessing on the model below...

I have a 36" Sharp model 36C231 (Approx 7-8 yrs old). This past week it started switching on "input 2" randomly. We tried taking batteries out of the remotes to be sure it wasn't the remote. No luck there. Our other TVs in the house are fine, so its not a cable issue. I hope someone out there has a solution.

    We have the same problem with our 36in sharp. The inputs on the front seem to be very sensitive. My husband thought it was dust getting in there, but even when I keep the little flap down it still switches.

There's an option on the menu to tuen 'demo mode' on and off. If it's set to on, that's your problem. It will be switching input sources every 2 minutes or so. Switch this off and it'll be ok again.

I have a fairly old ( 6yrs ) Dual brand Tv, which switches on, screen flickers then switches on to standby...help<!-- from fixya rte -->

I also had this issue and was convinced that it was an external signal issue. However, if you dig through the setup menu you'll notice both "auto input" and "universal plus" are set by default to INPUT 2. I've turned both of these settings to off and haven't had a problem since.

Hopefully this helps.

Ouku single din no sound from rca cables


Sorry I did not use the video out RCA cables. My audio RCA cables worked fine... I ran them to my JBL amplifier through a conversion adapter. I did not run it direct to the amp.. I used Metra TYTO-01 03-08 Toyota Vehicles Harness for JBL SYS (Ebay item 160560648718) and it worked great.

Here is the wiring color coding that I found online:

DVD PLAYER IS ON WITH SOUND ONLY, TV SCREEN SHOWS NO SIGNAL


One of two things are happening. Either you have the video cable connected to the wrong input on your tv and it needs to be switched or you are not choosing the right input signal choice to watch your dvd's.

If you are using rca jacks, you might have connected the video jack to an audio input. Try reversing them. If you are not using RCA jacks then you probably have chosen the wrong input method. Click through input choices on your remote until you get a picture and sound at the same time.

I just bought the dual headrest from walmart and can not get the sound to work the passenger side. can anyone help me with this?or possibly tell me how to get the sound through the stereo.


The monitor only headrest does not have audio handling circuitry in it. the wire harness for that side is the one with the red and black wire, and the two video inputs, not the harness with the red and black wire and the three RCA jacks. It will function on the wrong harness, but it is not the correct one.

The DVD headrest has two harnesses. One of them is for power and output, the other is for input only from another source. The harness with the red and black wire has the three RCA outputs... the video lead goes to the other headrest, and the audio can be fed to an aux input on a stereo or amplifier. The input harness is designed to be Video 2 input from either a gaming system (a Game Cube is a nice option), or another DVD or video source (hand held video device such as iPod or Smart Phone like a HTC Touch Pro 2).

To get sound out of the stereo, either run the audio output from the headrest to the aux input on your stereo, or cycle the FM transmit options using the FMTX button on the DVD player unit to a station you can tune to on your car's FM radio.

I know that the Jensen has a "Dual Zone" setup in the menu settings. Make sure that you have it set right. Make sure nalso that you are using a MONITOR OUT RCA from the Jensen, not a source input on the deck.

No sound at all


Sometimes you need to make sure the REMOTE line is hooked up, which is the blue-wire with the white stripe.  If it isn't hooked up, this can cause the unit to function, but you won't get any sound.
