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

Sharp Aquos LC42d64u has blurry picture...

I have just purchased a Sharp Aquos LC 42d64u tv.  I have it hooked up to a Sharp Blu-Ray player via HDMI cable, and an Apple TV via HDMI cable.  It is also hooked up to my Huges satellite receiver via Composite ( R,L, Video ) cable.
My problem is that all the pictures, even the Blu-Ray with a Blu-Ray disk in it, is blurry and the picture is not sharp and crisp.  I thought it might be my cables, so I purchased a Monster HDMI 800 cable, and tried it with the Blu-Ray, and it didn't seem to make much difference?  I am wondering if the TV is a dud, or am I a dud and just doing something wrong?  It almost looks slightly snowy....  I know that the TV is meant to be a pretty good one, and I thought it should be as simple as plug and play?
Can anyone please help me?

    I also thought the tv might be bad.... Any other thoughts?

    I have phoned Sharp Customer Care, and the woman walked me through a number of steps, including AV mode, resolution settings etc. I have tried re-setting all the resettable options to factory settings too - all to no avail.

    To answer the slow question, yes it does seem a touch slow. Almost like it ghosts - people move and their ghost is left behind for a quater of a second. It is also as if the the only thing in focus is the object in the foreground. Everything else behind is out of focus, to the point that it is in every shot of the movie, and I know that can't be right?

    Fortunately, it's still under warranty from Sears, so hopefully they will replace it. Thank you for your help.

There will a specific procedure to understand the resolution, Since you have decided to contact to manufacturer it will be good idea that you can check step my step with the technician.

Hi,
have you tuned the set correctly, scanned and saved channels ?
If you have no luck, try the menu to adjust the screen resolution.
it seems that you have all of the relative components, may be just a simple tuning fix.
Hope This Helps You.

Hi,

Is it slow and blurry? if yes then return it to warranty immediately. The video processing circuits are malfunctioning and the repair cost is prohibitive if you must pay for it on your own.

I hope it is still under warranty. So, do not delay getting it into the Sharp Authorized facility or back to the retailer you purchased it from.


The connection cable you use could have something to do with it, but is should work on all formats. The best for reliability and absence of blocking is just analog composite - but that is also the lowest picture resolution. S-video is okey too, but it is analog as well. Component is the highest grade; going to hdmi is just another way of receiving the signal - I don't think it will effect the error correction problem in any way. My opinion.

Goodluck..

My Sharp Aquos LC-40E67UN is plugged into a Sony Blu Ray home theatre system BDV-IZ1000W. It is hooked up with an HDMI cable. I get sound but no picture on the TV. If I unplug and replug the HDMI cable...


Wow it seems as though you've pretty much done all of the applicable troubleshooting for this issue. The only other thing I can advise in this case is to consider purchasing a SD card. Some Blu Ray players require a little extra memory to function properly so they come with an SD card slot. Of course no one tells you this when you buy the player but it may be the solution to your problem.

Flickering screen (LC-52SB55u) with HDMI cable input from Sharp Aquos Blue Ray. HDMI working well from other inputs


Do a quick google for this on the AVForums site where you'll find numerous threads covering this problem. First, select the HDMI input before turning on the blu ray player. The handshake over HDMI is the problem. I have the same problem with a Technika blu ray which is fine on my other TVs.
If this doesn't solve it then you ned a firmware update which can be downloaded from Sharp's website and installed using a USB pendrive or by PCMCIA card from Sharp if you have an older model with a rocker on off switch and no USB update port on the back of the TV.

My problem is when I connect my laptop Sony Vaio (model: VPCEB18FD) at my TV Sharp AQUOS (Model: LC-42D64U) via HDMI cable (v 2.0), I don't have sound...... Thanks!


On the Vaio:
right click volume on system tray and select playback devices
select hdmi/ sdip as default and then in the properties deselect dolby

If you don't have those options you may need new drivers installed on your Vaio. Do you have windows xp? The driver can be found here: support.vaio.sony.co.uk/downloads/info/info.asp?site=voe_en_GB_cons&url=Vaio/Original/AR2_Drivers.zip&ip=RAID_AR21.htm

If you have vista the driver can be found here:
support.vaio.sony.ie/downloads/updates/updates.asp?site=voe_en_IE_cons&c=0&s=VGN-AR&m=2418&os=7&osl=1

On the television make sure you are on the right input. Press menu--setup--hdmi setup--audio select--digital

Hope this helps

I can't play movies on my tv


Okay, this monitor setup is a little strange. There is an "AVC" component with this monitor that you use to connect everything. There is a 4 cable string (power, s-video, DVI, display port) that connects the AVC unit to the monitor. You must have all external equipment connected to the AVC unit, not to the TV itself. The connections on the TV talk to the AVC unit. I will assume you will be connecting the Blu-ray player via HDMI. HDMI is on input 4 on the back of the AVC unit. hit the input button on the remote or the TV and select input 4. There is a way of customizing the inputs to read out what you have connected to them (ex. DVD, VHS, etc.) to make it easier to use. This should get you signal from your blu-ray

May sharp lc-52sb55u


Well, there is a way to have the clearest possable picture. Get HD cable TV box that is HDMI compatable and watch only HD channels. Or buy a blu-ray player, hook it up via HDMI and only watch blu-ray disc in 1080p!

Can not get my new 42 " Aquos TV to work with my new blue ray DVD


A blu ray player will play on any television. The television might not however have the highest resolution to display the full capability of a blue ray. That being said, the blu ray player may be faulty the connections may be incorrect. I would recommend running an HDMI cable from the A/V out on the blu ray to the HDMI input on the TV. GOod Luck

Is it hd ?


HDMI is by far the best solution with this unit. As long as you have the HD package from your carrier and the receiver has HDMI outputs this Aquos will perform well.
