Question about Sharp LC47SB57UT 47 in. TV

1 Answer

I purchased both this television and a Sharp surround bar. So far I have not been able to make the speakers from the surround bar to work. It does not seem to recognize that I have another source for the audio. I am using the red and white audio cables to connect the bar to the tv.

Unfortunately I have to ask where the red and white audio cables are connected on the tv because there is no mention of that in the problem. There is only one place where they should be connected and it is on the top left where it says analog audio out. See page 10 of the manual.

To make sure the sound bar itself is working instead of connecting it to the television connect it to one of your devices like your cable box/satellite tv box or dvd player. It would go right into the red and white output hole on the device.

I'm trying to hook up a sharp aquos tv to an rca surround sound receiver and it won't work? any suggestions? I have tried turning off the speakers on the tv....


First thing to do is get the owner manual for each and start checking both settings and actual hookup---usually a surround system will work on all types of sets---when in doubt read the owner manuals.

If need either manual Google that model number with "manual" to try to locate it.

As far as the set goes it may require either a variable audio output source or in some cases the out to be a fixed level.

What kind of audio system do I need to purchase for this set. The speakers are just terrible.


I changed my audio equalizer setting to "POP" and I got much more pronounced separation. Also, make sure the SURROUND is set to "ON" in your settings or simply hit the SURROUND button on the remote that came with the TV.

The "AUDIO OUT" jacks on this set apparently only work when the input is set to "TV". I wanted to hook a couple of external speakers up as well and found they would not work when hooked up to HDMI to a cable box. I mean how many people by a large flat screen like this if they don't want to view HD? Like about zero! The AUDIO OUT works only when TV is selected for INPUT

A work around is to use the headphone jack and hook a couple of external speakers up to that.

If you want to go for a higher end home theater sound bar system so that you can route both DVD and CABLE box through it via multiple HDMI's you can choose from SONY, Phillips etc.

I wrote to Sharp about the AUDIO OUT issue. It's rediculous that they only work when TV is selected for input. But you might try using the heaphone jack alternative if you find a set of speakers that sound good to you. Hope this helps.

Can not get my surround sound system to work with Sharp LC-40F22E using usual audio cable, sound still comes through the tv speakers and can not find how to turn tv speakers of or tell the tv to use...


The way to turn off the tv speakers is to press the menu button scroll to the option category navigate to output select and choose variable. However just turning off the tv speakers will not cause the surround sound system to work with this television. Connecting the red and white composite audio cables to the television's OUTPUT will get you stereo sound. Some people opt to keep the tv's speakers turned on when doing this. In order to get the digital optical out to work between the television and the surround sound system you will have to be using input tv. You will have to be using the television's tuner with digital cable no cable box or with an over the air antenna. Did you make sure you connected the red and white cable to the surround sound aux or any composite input and choose the right function on it?

Sharp LC-42SB45U


You Have to check The owners manuals for both products to see if you are using the correct switching method to use your television with the surround sound.There is usually a setting for each unit that must be set for the correct signal path to the amplifier output to the speakers. The way to test this out is to use the first input on the surround sound unit for the television. Hook- up the output of the sound for the television to first input on the surround sound amplifier.Set the surround sound amplifier to the first setting and test to see if it is working. If still not working check the televisions sound output section in your owners manual and see if you have to set the output to the line out sound and turn off the television speakers output.If this is true make this adjustment with the on screen menu and test the sound again.If still no sound output there may me a problem with the output sound section of you television. You should then check the Sharp website for the frequently asked question and troubleshooting sections to see if similar problems have been posted for this problem and have answers.If all this fails you should contact customer service for both units and ask for technical assistance for your problem. Hope this helps you with your problem.

Sharp LC-37D6U Aquos audio problem


Your Aquos does not have a separate Audio board, audio circuits are mainly on main pcb. If the guy was able to fix the problem by hooking a surround to the audio out, that means that is a problem with speakers contacts or with one of the outputs.
Borrow a surround or use an amplified speakers set and check if you can fix it with this trick.
To do a real fix, a technician must open the tv, and test all audio connection, and onboard connection to audio outputs to see what is wrong.
If TV is going to work with a surround you will probably get a far better audio quality than the one you get now from TV speakers.

No sound from daewoo 42" plasma


This particular model doesn't have internal speakers. It has two removable external speakers mounted on the left and right side of the tv. If you didn't get the external speakers with the tv, you won't have sound unless you use a surround sound setup.
