37 inch Sharp Aquos. "Failed to receive Broadcast [E202]"
I was given a used 37 inch Sharp Aquos. It reads "Failed to receive Broadcast [E202]" . Ive searched a couple spots to see what this error message is but can't find it ..... anyone know what's supposed to be done? I tried my direct tv cable on another tv and it works just fine. Can't seem to get signal in this TV

This is basically a message for no signal on the tv, make sure the tv itself is on the correct input for the type of cable used. The inputs are labled by numbers on the back of the tv. The input can be changed by the button on the side panel of the tv.

Ur tv is not getting a broadcast signal,or ur tv cable or free air signal not getting from air antena,cables or dishes signals,or strong enough comming through.Get a better antena,like a digital antena,or a roof antena for better free air signal,cables or telicoms signals check ur boxes,push the power button OFF/ON to reboot it,to get signal back.
U just take ur tv original remote just turn to channel 3?Why is ur cable service connected to channel 3?The proper way to connect to cable service is get the pay cable connected.Take ur original tv remote.Push Menu on ur remote,go to SET UP go down the CH Setup,pick cable,than scan for all the pay cables channels you pay for.
That message is presented when a selected digital channel is too weak to decode. Let us hope that something was accidentally changed:
Is the channel legitimate? Is the antenna/cable still connected (to the Digital input)? Go into menu - setup - channel setup. Is the selection of either cable or air channels correct for your situation? Use menu - setup - Antenna Setup-DIGITAL to examine the signal strength. Is there nothing at all, or is it just a question of strength?
Odds favor a change in channel setup that you would not have made intentionally, or a simple physical problem (input cable, etc.). Start from scratch, and check the settings and connections you originally made. Hopefully it will be simple and cheap!
I too have this issue I beleive what is happening is the integrated tuner is not locking on to the channel because of a weak signal and then sending that error message . I am going to replace the cable from the splitter to this tv and see what happens. I have another new tv just installed from that splitter and it has all chanels. Remember to RE- run the locate all channels after anything is done to the cable splitter etc.
Seeing that you have a superior brand and not getting channels is a bummer. It may have to do with the setting, make sure you're set to cable rather antenna and then do a rescan. Btw, often times channels from an over the antenna is much clearer than from cable because cable tv has to compress the signal. If you're high in the air like the top floor of a building a cheap $10 will pull in great free digital channels. It helps to experiment and read the troubleshooting guide in your manual.
