Sharp Aquos incompatiable audio signal, check output device set
Hello, I have a Sharp Aquos TV which is hooked to a cable box via a HDMI cable. I can see the picture but hear no sound. And a Error box said: incompatiable audio signal received, check output device setting. I have no idea what to do. Any help is appreciated!
Often you must also use the RED & WHITE Audio Cables. With the HDMI. cable.
It goes from the Cable Box, to the TV, Via the appropriate cables, using HDMI, also use the OUTPUT RED & WHITE Audio connectors and cables, wire color to color. Select EXTERNAL HDMI INPUT on the TV, to be able to see and hear TV. Also there are two controls now for the volume, both the remote for the Cable Box, also the TV's volume as well. set on the TV to a High setting, and control the actual Volume.

Usually you cannot mix and match sources and outputs. In other words, if you're using component to connect from DVD player to a receiver, you have to also use component to connect from receiver to TV. Input and output MUST be the same - both HDMI or both Component.
It sounds like an HDMI lead has standard video on it or the output from a digital unit is not the correct specification for your TV. Check the instruction booklet for recomended signal sources and then check your DVD, Video, Computer for the right type of signals to be outputed to your TV. Hope this helps.
I have a similar problem. The Sharp TV aquos appears to be shutting down my blue ray player and dvd recorder when connected via HDMI. They work fine and never close down when I connect them via the rca cables either single video connection or a composite 3 cable rca lead. I have 3 HDMI inputs on the tv and the problem occurs on all 3. Any suggestions?
The best hook up for this unit is to use the hdmi if your samsung box offers hdmi output. The panasonic vcr should be hooked to any one of the composit video inputs with the yellow video cable and the red and white audio cables. If the vcr does not have composite output then use a rf (coax cable) to antenna a input and put the tv on channel 3 or 4 as vcr is set for.
You have said the correct thing HDMI is digital therefore Analog will not pass.
You might have RCA audio outputs on your cable box so either send them into the TV from cable or into the AMP then use AMP volume to listen to TV audio (select unused input and remember it is for TV) the key is to remember that cable box will drive the initial vol so raise or lower cable vol then use AMP vol to obtain desired volume.
I have the same problem with my Sharp Lcd and Onkyo 804. I believe one problem is that the TV can not accept dolby digital or dts digital audio signals through HDMI. It will play sound if it receives a PCM signal through HDMI. You can try switching the type of signal on the cable box settings and on the dvd player. I switched to PCM and got sound through the TV and the receiver. The problem is that PCM is usually only a 2 channel signal and Dolby 5.1 will sound better through the surround sound theater system. I have not found an absolute solution to this yet, but I am willing to not get sound through the lousy TV speakers in order to get top notch sound through the Onkyo.
