SHARP aquos 1080p HDTV: VCR image flickers when playback
I have an old Sony hlv-660hf VCR; worked perfectly for my recording needs until I hooked it up to my SHARP aquos LC-32D62U 1080p HDTV. The image on playback started flicking in a very regular fashion: 2 second image, 2 second black screen; 2 second image, 2 second black screen, etc... I tried everything with the connections, even got a NEW vcr, hooked it up, same problem even though i tried different hook-ups, ie. s-video, regular, etc.. It leads me to think the problem is with the TV or connections; fact that it is 1080p? Am totally slumped, can anyone help me??
I have this same flickering problem with the VCR connect to Sharp AQUOS LC37D62U. have tried several VCRs - several cables - same problem.
Called service - suggested I keep trying different VCRs - not practical

Press the menu button and scroll over to the setup sub category. Scroll down to reset and press enter. Select yes and then enter. Select yes again and press enter. The television will turn itself off and then back on.
If that basic reset doesn't work call 877-332-7867 to be walked through the no sound troubleshooting up to an INIT. I cannot put the steps for an INIT into print because any wrong move could erase everything from your television.
The format from the PC needs to be an HDTV format: 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i or 1080p. Other formats will generally not work. You may need to get the latest drivers from your video card manufactures website to correct the problem. I hope this was helpful, best wishes.
First thing- why not just use the HDMI instead of standard def cables in the first place?
If the RCA-video (yellow composite cable) is not producing color, 1 of 2 things may be wrong:
1. You accidentally connected the a/v cables [yellow white and red] to [red green and blue] component inputs or vice versa, or..
2. Your TV or DVD player is somehow set to the wrong video format. Check the DVD settings for video output format and video connector type. Format should be NTSC, and connector should be composite and/or s-video for the cables you're using.
If this is only happening when connecting the DVD player through the VCR, then check to make sure the same cables connecting the DVD player to the the VCR are also connected to the TV from the VCR.
BTW- if this is just to record DVDs to a VCR, I'll tell you it's not worth it. If your DVD player has an HDMI port, your picture quality will be so much better than if you're watching a VCR copy of one. Your new HDTV will look worse than an old standard def TV. Worse; I'm not kidding.
I hope some of this helps.
using the magnovox remote, reprogram the vcr's channels. set it up to use cable not air. when the vcr was unlugged it lost it's channel memory. don't buy new cables, you're getting a picture and sound so that means your rca cables are ok.
When you use component audio, it may shut off the side a/v audio settings. Try restoring all defualts (any changes you have made will be lost by doing so) according to p. 32 of the manual:
Menu --> Setup --> Reset --> Yes
I have the same problem when going to dark scenes from a bright scene or during channel changes. Sharp sent a tech under warranty and he installed new software to no avail. He called sharp tech support and they suggested turning on opc. The TV works fine but you must adjust sharpness and contrast to achieve an acceptable picture. I paid $868.00 for the set a Sam's club and will buy an extended warranty. I will not buy another sharp. My 40" sony works perfectly.
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.
