Hi,

I am assuming that you have installed the cable to the appropriate jack/connectors on the back of the TV and that of the PC.

If you are using a laptop, you would need to press on the Fn + F? keys of the laptop to cycle through the different settings such as: laptop's display only, laptop & TV displays and TV display only. The F? key would be one in your laptop designated to engaged/enable external monitor (TV). Normally, it would have a monitor icon.

Please verify that your PC's screen resolution is 1366 x 768 or lower.

If you are using a desktop, you need to engage/enable the dual/twin view in Display Properties. Additionally, the TV must be powered on first before the desktop is booted.

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.

You may have power supply problem or it is in the safety shutdown due to shorted circuits.
You need in-depth troubleshooting.

Sharp Aquos LC-37P50E connected to computer with HDMI cable


Hi,

I got the chat , but some how it got disconnected.
But i would like to help you in this aspect.
HDMI stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface, and supports transmission of both audio and video in high fidelity.

First make sure these things,

Both your computer and your TV will need to support HDMI interface.
It's quite a recent thing in PC graphics cards, so you may have to resort to S-Video, DVI or VGA for the video, plus a 3.5mm stereo cable (or the optical TOSLINK equivalent) for the sound.

Let know your comments and i will follow up with the suggestions.
Thanx for using fixya,
Good luck.

How to connect my Sharp LC-26DA5U to my computer as a monitor


There are two possible problems: 1. You are connecting a 15-pin (on the laptop) to the 9-pin (on the TV) connection. This isn't the video-in connection for the TV. The TV has a DB-15 connection near its DVI input connector. You should be using a 15-pin to 15-pin cable. The DB-9 connector on the TV is a serial port for servicing the TV. 2. You aren't enabling the external video port for the laptop. Try hitting Fn+F5 on the laptop to cycle between the three display modes: laptop only, laptop + TV, TV only. Make sure to wait a few seconds after hitting Fn+F5 to let the displays sync up.
