On the Vaio:
right click volume on system tray and select playback devices
select hdmi/ sdip as default and then in the properties deselect dolby

If you don't have those options you may need new drivers installed on your Vaio. Do you have windows xp? The driver can be found here: support.vaio.sony.co.uk/downloads/info/info.asp?site=voe_en_GB_cons&url=Vaio/Original/AR2_Drivers.zip&ip=RAID_AR21.htm

If you have vista the driver can be found here:
support.vaio.sony.ie/downloads/updates/updates.asp?site=voe_en_IE_cons&c=0&s=VGN-AR&m=2418&os=7&osl=1

On the television make sure you are on the right input. Press menu--setup--hdmi setup--audio select--digital

Hope this helps

Connect a Sharp TV to Sharp sound bar


Call a local custom audio/video installer that can help you for a small fee. It's okay to pay a professional and get the right help. It shouldn't cost you more than $50 at most, but probably half that amount since it's a very simple connection.

Here's a couple of weblinks that may be helpful...

Sharp Aquos LC42d64u has blurry picture...


Hi,

Is it slow and blurry? if yes then return it to warranty immediately. The video processing circuits are malfunctioning and the repair cost is prohibitive if you must pay for it on your own.

I hope it is still under warranty. So, do not delay getting it into the Sharp Authorized facility or back to the retailer you purchased it from.


The connection cable you use could have something to do with it, but is should work on all formats. The best for reliability and absence of blocking is just analog composite - but that is also the lowest picture resolution. S-video is okey too, but it is analog as well. Component is the highest grade; going to hdmi is just another way of receiving the signal - I don't think it will effect the error correction problem in any way. My opinion.

Goodluck..

I have connected a Roku Digital Media Player to Sharp AQUOS TV, I am able to get the video but no audio from TV, Audio cable and all are setup properly. Can anyone suggest me? also i see the same problem...


Use the HDMI cable on the Roku. The reason you don't have audio from the laptop is because the HDMI out on the laptop has no audio on it. You need to use a 3.5 mm audio cable to connect the laptop audio to the TV.

Can I hook up my Toshiba laptop to my Sharp Aqous TV, if so what connections do I need, ?S-video? I have an SGA connection on my laptop but not on the TV?


If this is the exact model Sharp Aquos television you have then you would have to have a laptop that has hdmi or dvi. You can try S Video on a laptop but the laptop's resolution would have to be so low that most laptops cannot accommodate this. You're right; this television does not have a VGA (RGB cable) input.

No audio, no video but program guide displays


1. You should check you cabling connections at the satellite receiver to the TV.
2. Check the mode you are in on the HDMI cable
3. Your HDMI should have 3 modes in the set up screen (HDMI 1,2,3)

Problem connecting my PS3 to my Sharp Aquos LC-C3237U LCD TV


Your PS3 set itself above the max resolution your LC-C3237U. Most likely the PS3 is doing 1080P, but the highest the Sharp can do is 1080i. So do this:

1. Connect PS3 to TV (you can use the current cable or analog cable)
2. Turn on TV and set input to port PS3 is on.
3. Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
4. Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.

Sharp Aquos 46" HDMI problem


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?

HDMI connection problem


Your TV doesn't like your laptop I guess.
There should be 2 reset buttons behind your TV.
Press the reset button first.
If that doesn't work, try the system reset button next.
If that doesn't work, you'll have to call 1-800-BE-SHARP to help you with the possible software problem with the TV
Good Luck

Sharp aquos 42"


Check the settings in the TV set for HDMI sound on the input of the TV that you are using. Try another HDMI cable. It may be defective.

It is also possible that there is a compatiblity problem for the HDMI sound between the TV and the computer's sound protocol.
