Question about Sharp Aquos LC-32GD6U 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

I'm trying to use my 6 yr old Sharp TV as a remote monitor for my MacBook laptop. The Sharp manual says that port 5 is the correct port for PC hook up. So, I'm hooking up the laptop's mini DVI port to the Sharp port 5 via a DVI cable and adapter. The Mac knows the cable is hooked up, it displays Sharp LCD in the mac menu bar but there is no display on the TV, the TV screen stays black. When I push the "input" key on the remote the TV displays "5 PC, ---X---, --HZ

You need to set your MAC video resolution to the native resolution of this TV in PC mode, please read your manual to find out what that is, if the resolution is set too high, the TV will not be able to display it.<br /> <span style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial"><a rel='nofollow' href="http://www.fixya.com/support/r5093881-lcd_flat_panel_tv_troubleshooting_guide">http://www.fixya.com/support/r5093881-lcd_flat_panel_tv_troubleshooting_guide</a></span><br /> <span style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial"> </span><br /> <span style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt; mso-fareast-font-family: 'Times New Roman'; mso-ansi-language: EN-US; mso-fareast-language: EN-US; mso-bidi-language: AR-SA"><a rel='nofollow' href="http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums">http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums</a></span>

How do I display PC screen onto Sharp TV LC26SB24? I&#39;ve lost TV user manual


Depending on your OS on most computers you need to either add a second monitor output or change the settings to tell the PC to redirect the video output to and external device instead of the PC's screen. Check your OS settings.

I cant connect my tv to computer


Hello

All modern TV's can be used as computer monitors - you just need the correct cables and select the correct input on the TV.

What cable are you using to connect your PC to your TV? VGA or HDMI? Your listed TV has both ports but your computer may not have a HDMI port. Either way, connect the correct cable from your PC to your TV and note how the port is labeled.

Turn the TV on and then find the "Input Select" button on the remote and press it until the above port appears on the screen.

If you use the VGA port, you will need to hook up the audio from the PC to the "PC/DVI Audio In" port so the sound will play on the TV speakers.

You can find the manual for your TV here:

Hope this helps!

My sharp tv is pc ready. I hook everything up and nothing works. Tried hdmi and also tried RGB-vga cables. If I put cable in hdmi port nothing happens. If I use RGB cable and audio nothing happens. If I...


There are a number of things to check here:

1) Verify that the resolution on the PC is set to a supported level for the TV. Usually the TV will show "no signal" if the resolution is out of range or the message "out of range" will appear.

2) You don't indicate whether you are connecting to a desktop or laptop. If a laptop, you may need to turn on the external monitor. This is done by using the function key and either F5 or F6 (the key should have a picture of a screen on it). Hitting this combination will toggle between the main screen with.without the external monitor.

3) Verify that the TV port is selected correctly (AV1,AV2 etc)

4) You will need a separate cable or the audio regardless of the system type. Also verify that the audio cable is in the corresponding audio input jacks for the video option selected.

If you have completed the above and it still doesn't work, please post the details about the computer being used and the exact cable setup that you have and I'll check into this further.


Thanks,
Dan

If the button on the tv doesn't work, and the remote does, its a contact thats broken. If the remote and the button don't work, it can mean that the dead. The only real way to know if its really broken is to call you local, certified by Sharp, repairman to diagnose the problem.

If your laptop has a VGA port, your Vizio needs to have a VGA port too so you can use a standard VGA monitor cable.

If your laptop has a DVI port, you hook it up to the Vizio using a DVI-to-HDMI cable.

And if your laptop has an HDMI port, you hook it up using a standard HDMI cable.

Hope this helps.

Laptop to pc monitor


Connecting the laptop to an external monitor hooked uip to the VGA connector at the back of the laptop cannot damage the laptop, even if the monitor is connected to a different power supply, as on the VGA port and cable there is not high voltage being carried.
