Question about Televison & Video

Do I need a separate HDMI cable to connect my DVD player to my Sharp Aquos LC32D47UA? I only have 1 video input but 2 RGB inputs. Do I need to unplug my satellite and use that input. Can't I have both connected at the same time without an HDMI cable?

If your DVD player has a composite or S Video output, you can use them instead of using an HDMI cable. However, you need to connect the audio portion as well - RCA left and right, white and red, respectively to the set.

Need to know how to connect what color cables to TV & DV2150


If you use an HDMI then you just need to go from the DVD player out to the TV Input. If you have RGB cable (Red Green Blue) then hook the RGB to the output of the DVD player and to the Input of the TV. with that option there will be a pair of audio as well. They will be red and white. Red is your right and white is your left. They will go from your output from the DVD to the matching input on your TV that you put the video into. (ex. Video 1 pairs with Audio 1). HDMI carries audio and video so only one plug in.

My TV is a Sharp-AQUOS Model # LC52D64U, I have 2 DVD players. SONY DVD player Model #DVP-S530D and MAGNAVOX VIDEO CASSETTE RECORDER/DVD PLAYER MODEL#MWD2206. Thanks Barbara


Sorry about the delay Barbara, I was looking for your clarification comments on the other question page. I didn't realize that you posted this information here in a brand NEW question box. No problem though, this will work just fine too. I will post the information on both question pages so there is absolutely no confusion.

First of all here are the links to each of the USER'S MANUALS for your particular system components:

SHARP AQUOS TV - MODEL # LC52D64U:


http://files.sharpusa.com/Downloads/ForHome/HomeEntertainment/LCDTVs/Manuals/tel_man_LC42_46_52D64U.pdf




SONY DVD PLAYER - MODEL # DVP-S530D:

http://www.docs.sony.com/reflib/docget.asp?manualid=8499&template_id=1&region_id=1&DL
=




MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD PLAYER MODEL # MWD2206:


http://download.m4c.magnavox.com/files/c/cmwd2206_f7/cmwd2206_f7_dfu_aen.pdf




To view the Owner's Manuals with Operating Instructions for each device, just use your mouse to click on the links, which are the underlined and highlighted text just above. Each one of them will open a new web browser page for you automatically and allow you to view the information indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.


You did not mention exacly what model of DirecTV receiver you have, so first of all, I will just give you the generic instructions for connecting that device to your TV using an HDMI cable connection.




DIRECTV CONNECTION TO TV


Make sure your TV and DirecTV receiver are turned off before making any cable connections.
Now connect the COAX cable from the satellite antenna to the COAX IN jack on the back of the DirecTV receiver.
Now connect one end of an HDMI cable to the HDMI OUT jack on the back of the DirecTV receiver.
Then connect the other end of that HDMI cable to the HDMI INPUT 5 jack on the back of your TV.
See page 10 of your TV's USER MANUAL for a detailed labelled diagram of the rear input connections on your TV.


Here also is a link to a short video which demonstrates this basic HDMI connection procedure:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7P-yayRJ6c&NR=1




If you want to test your system at this point, you can. Just plug in the power cords to the DirecTV receiver and your TV, then turn them both on.
In order to see the output from the DirecTV receiver, you will need to select the INPUT 5 input mode using the INPUT button on your TV remote.
See page 11 of the TV manual, button number 7 on the remote control button layout diagram.
Keep pressing the INPUT button repeatedly until you see INPUT 5 on the TV display screen.
At this point you should be getting an input signal from the DirecTV Receiver on your TV.
That completes the DIRECTV to TV connection portion of the system hook-up procedure.



SONY DVD PLAYER CONNECTION TO TV


Your Sony DVD player should have come with an S-VIDEO cable and set of RCA cables (yellow / red / white ) included.
Here is a link to a picture of an S-Video cable in case you need to see one:


http://amazingbestsellerstore.tk/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/31nOF2e5DXL.jpg





And here is a link to a picture of a set of 3 color RCA cables:


http://www.cameratron.co.za/images/productcables/cables/rca%20to%20rca.jpg




Connect one end of the S-VIDEO cable to the S-VIDEO OUT on the back of your SONY DVD player.
See page 8 of the SONY DVD Player manual.
Then connect the other end of the S-VIDEO cable to the S-VIDEO INPUT 2 terminal on the back of your TV.
Now take colored RCA cables and one end of the red and the white cables into the LINE OUT (AUDIO L / R) red and white jacks on the back of you SONY DVD Player.
Then take the other ends of those cables and plug the red and white plugs into the INPUT 2 (AUDIO L / R) red and white jacks on the back of your TV.
In order to see the output from the Sony DVD Player, you will need to select the INPUT 2 input mode using the INPUT button on your TV remote.
See page 11 of the TV manual, button number 7 on the remote control button layout diagram.
Keep pressing the INPUT button repeatedly until you see INPUT 2 on the TV display screen.
At this point you should be getting an input signal from the Sony DVD Player on your TV as long as the DVD player is turned on with a disc inserted.
This completes the SONY DVD PLAYER to TV connection portion of your system hook-up procedure.


MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD PLAYER TO TV CONNECTION

I will describe the connection procedure using the basic 3 color (yellow / red / white) cables which were included with the unit at purchase.
COMPONENT VIDEO cables are also a slightly higher quality option but would have to be purchased by you separately.
Take one end of the 3 color RCA cables and insert the colored plugs into the corresponding colored VIDEO OUT and AUDIO (L / R) OUT connections on the back of the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD Player.
YELLOW cable plugs into the VIDEO OUT connector.
RED and WHITE cables plug into the AUDIO (L / R) OUT connectors.
See page 7 of the MAGNAVOX manual, METHOD 1.
Now take the other ends of the 3 color RCA cables and plug them into the corresponding colored INPUT 1 connections on the back of your TV.
YELLOW cable plugs into the INPUT 1 - VIDEO IN connector.
RED and WHITE cables plug into the INPUT 1 - AUDIO (L / R) IN connectors.

In order to see the output from the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD Player, you will need to select the INPUT 1 mode using the INPUT button on your TV remote.
Keep pressing the INPUT button repeatedly until you see INPUT 1 on the TV display screen.
At this point you should be getting an input signal from the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD Player on your TV as long as the DVD player is turned on with a disc or tape inserted and playing.
This completes the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD PLAYER to TV connection portion of your system hook-up procedure.
Recording content on the VCR from an outside source will require additional connections which are described in detail on page 6 of the MAGNAVOX manual.

This completes the most basic hook up of your entire system using the cables which were supplied stock with each piece of equipment. As I stated, other options are available for purchase and the instructions for connecting these types of cables are all in the various OWNER'S MANUALS provided above.


Please comment back here to this page if you have any details to add, have any questions, have difficulty accessing the links, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

Joe.

I plugged in the normal 3 Video inputs and it still doesn't work.


More info is needed, please. When you say 3 video inputs, what are you referring to? I believe the Sanyo has the HDMI, RGB/YPbPr component video, S-video component, RCA composite video and Coaxial connections, though I'm not sure how many of each. So lets start with the best quality to least.

HDMI: This is one cable that provides both audio & video and produces the best picture quality. It comes in different lengths and is a wide, flat connection. A must for 1080p resolution signals.

Component video, RGB or YPbPr analog component cables: 5 separate RCA cables, 3 of which are video that separate the video signal & 2 audio cables. The 3 video cables are generally red, green and blue (RGB) or marked individually with the letters Y, Pb/Cb & Pr/Cr . The audio cables are red & white. You may see these on the back of DVD players often. They will carry a signal up to 1080i but not 1080p.

S-video component: One cable for video, it is a round connection with several pins in it and will only plug in one way. You must use 2 RCA cables for audio with this cable, red & white again.

Composite video: 3 separate cables; Red, White & Yellow. Red & White are audio, left and right while yellow is video.

And finally there is coaxial which it the cable that is identical to the cable from the pole/ cable box or your dish. It is the poorest quality.

What can happen is you are using 3 standard RCA cables and have them plugged into the component input & they will not carry the signal, or one end in component input and the other end in the composite output or vice versa. Another is that you have the wrong input selected on the menu. Check all your cables and connections, plus the input you have selected on the TV itself.

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?

Sharp Aquos LC-37D44U only shows B&W images from DVD & VHS source


First thing- why not just use the HDMI instead of standard def cables in the first place? Anyway- 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.

Cannot get a connection with HDMI input


When the tv won't scroll to the HDMI inputs, it means that the tv does not detect a signal on those inputs. This either means the tv has an issue and can't receive an HDMI signal(very unlikely) or there is no signal being sent from the source(converter box) The first thing I would do is unplug all output connections from the box except for the HDMI output and see if this gets rid of your problem. If not, I would be more inclined to think you have a problem with your converter box than with your TV. You could also try using the HDMI ouput of a DVD player if you have one.

My Sharp Aquos 46" LCD


Digital inputs on Aquos TV's are "always on," usually the HDMI inputs and DVI inputs. As opposed to analog inputs 1, 2, or 3, are only activated once something is plugged in.
Try plugging in another HDMI sources into input4 or 5, if its still not working, the TV needs a new Main Board. Try calling Sharp 1-800-237-4277 and locating a local service center in your area.
