Sharp TV I'm using my 15" Sharp TV to hook up to satellite. In order for the satellite receiver to work, the TV needs to stay on channel 3. Every time I turn the TV on, it starts to recycle through all the channels. How can I get it to stay on Channel 3?

    I just found the operation manual for the TV. I read cover to cover including the troubleshooting guide, and don't see anything that addresses my problem. This is a brand new set (I've had it 4 weeks). The model is LC-15SH7U.

Without the specific model number, I can't give you teh exact sequence, but you need to setup the set to only enable channel 3. Work your way through the menus to select channel 3 as your "favorite" channel. Disable all of the others. The set should then turn on as channel 3 at all times. Feel free to post the model number and I'll pass along more details.

    Is the TV powered up through the satellite receiver or directly to the wall? If through the receiver, then there is no power to the set until the receiver is turned on which forces the set into autoprogram each time you turn it on. With the unit plugged directly into the wall, force an autoprogram with the satellite receiver set to channel 3. That should be the only channel the set sees and thus will be the only channel when turning it on.

Tv stays on one channel,no color or picture just ghost or outline, i have a Sharp lc46sb 54u


Check the settings to see if it is locked on channel 3 for external tuner source to have an input from a cable box ant in that needs 3 to function or from some other externally decoded signal like a vcr. Does the TV have a Digital tuner or the old analog tuner? If it's digital you can hook up a rabbit ear antenna with the UHF output on it & should be able to tune in some stations. If it's the old style then you will need a converter box to get it to receive any stations.
Fist check the settings to see if it has it set to lock on channel 3 for external tuner source.

I am trying to hook my tv up....what settings do I need to watch direct tv???


If you have a Sanyo TV with out audio/video connections, you will be using an RF connection cord between your TV and the satellite receiver. You will operate your TV on channel 3 or 4, match this with the channel 3 or 4 on the receiver box.If your TV has audio/video input connections, you will need to purchase rca connectors. They will have a red connection for right audio, white connection for left audio, and yellow is your video connection. The color codes will be on the input connections on the TV and the satellite receiver as well. You will than program the TV to input one or two, of the TV to receive the signal from the receiver. Use the satellite remote to control channels on the receiver box. When you are through watching TV, be sure to shut off your TV as well. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!

How do you change the 480i to the 720p using the remote


That isn't how resolution works. The resolution is changed in the cable box or satellite tv receiver. The television automatically displays the resolution once it has been changed on the cable box or satellite tv receiver. If you are on input tv on the Sharp television then it will not display any other resolution besides 480i if you have a cable box or satellite tv receiver. If you are not connected to a cable box or satellite tv receiver and you are on input tv then the resolution will differ from channel to channel.

I just purchased a new RCA 32 inch w/ DVD. When starting up it asks if you will use Cable or Air. I have Dish Satellite and picked air. I only get one channel and if I try to go up or down channels I get a...


You should not have had to choose cable or air. When you have satellite it is considered the same thing as cable. Air is over the air rabbit ears antenna free programming. When you are connecting a satellite receiver you only have to turn to channel 3 or pick the correct av, component or hdmi input. Oh you must be connecting more than one television to the same satellite receiver. When that is the case tv #2 usually has to be set on a different channel and the satellite tv company tells you which channel. You still use the satellite remote to change channels and leave this television on one channel at all times. This television is good enough for its own hd satellite receiver connected with component cables or an hdmi cable though in order for you to see its full potential for displaying hd programs.

Satellite connection to tv doesnt recognize


At least you know the set does work. I'm also assuming your satellite receiver is working and that all your cables are good.

There are two ways to hook up to the TV: RF (antenna) and the A/V jacks. Maybe the seller was using the RF input (the threaded round connector where you screw on a cable connection, then choose channels with the set's tuner), and you're trying to connect using the A/V jacks (the red, white and yellow RCA jacks). If that's the case you need to switch the TV to those inputs. You may need the original remote to do that if the TV doesn't have a front panel TV/AV button.

The other possibility is you're connecting the satellite receiver to the RF connector and the TV isn't on the right channel (usually channel 3 or 4). If you're using the RF input, have the TV autoprogram and it should find the channel. Most sets can do that from the front panel menu button.

Hope this helps. Thanks for sing Fixya!

Impossible to change channels, turn TV on, Power and Opc blinking


go into programming mode and search for channels   it will do this automatically to find all antennae and all cable channels    if this is hooked up to a receiver box then only channel 3 will be found or used    also most tvs are computerized these days and at times it will need to 'rebooted'     unplug the power and wait 10 seconds and plug it in again    this may have to be done whenever you are locked out from changing channels or using the volume controls

Trying to find out what my tvs settings should be on to hook up m


Have you tried channel 3 or the video input channels.
The Tv only needs the one channel that the signal from the box is sent on.
All the viewing channels will be changed through the satellite box.

Speaker distortion on SHARP 37" Aquos Hi Def


When you are changing channels you are using the tuner of the sat reeiver. the tv does not know you are changing a channel . It is just receiving a constant signal from the SAT receiver. I would suspect a problem with the receiver. Try another one first .

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.

We have a dish sat. and it says to press select to watch tv. we see no select button to do so. We have just purchased Sharp tv, model # lc-c3242U, please help


Hi,

Depending on how the satellite receiver is wired to the Sharp TV. I suppose your best try would be to select the input source on the Sharp, something like AV1 or Video (1) not channels. Channel selection would be done on the remote of the satellite receiver.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
