Question about Sharp 32C-240 32" TV

1 Answer

Watching DVD I have my tv run through my stereo, which has a DVD player. I can hear the DVDs, but I can't see the picture. I have an input button on my TV remote, but I don't know what to do after I press it. It has three input stages, but after that, it comes back to channel 3 for cable. HELP? Thanks in advance.

Make sure you have a video connection from the back of the DVD player going to one of the video inputs at the back of the TV. These are usually marked as "video 1" "video 2" etc. and you'd connect to it generally with a yellow cable (although it's not important the color it's just to keep things straight) and then switch your input to the correct one (video 1 or 2 whichever one you connected to). On the back of the DVD player it'll be labeled either "video out" or " monitor out".

Model no. dtq2605fc how do we hook up a dvd player to this?


There are several ways to hook up a DVD player to a TV.

The simplest method, which works with any TV, is to use the DVD player's RF (radio frequency) output on channel 3 or 4, connect the output cable to the TV's antenna jack, and put the TV on the appropriate channel. There are two problems with this method, though. First, I'm not aware of any new players that have RF output these days. The manufacturers don't include it, figuring you'll be using the direct audio and video outputs. So if you're trying to connect a new player, you likely don't have this option. Second, if the player does have RF out, it's usually not stereo sound and the picture quality can suffer.

If the set has AV input jacks available, you would use those and select the AV input from the remote control or front panel. There are some possible problems with this method too. The biggest one is that if you've lost or thrown away the original remote, you might not be able to select the AV input. (Don't laugh, many people don't realize they should keep the original remote even if they never use it.) And on TV sets with only mono sound, you need a Y-adapter cable to combine the right and left audio outputs into one channel, so you lose any stereo effects.

The last way is for TVs without an AV input and DVD players without RF output. You use an RF converter (also called an RF modulator), which takes the audio and video signals from the player and makes a channel 3 or 4 signal you can tune in as I described earlier. RF converters are available at Radio Shack stores, most TV retailers and from many sources online. They're easy to connect, but you'll need an AC outlet nearby since they need power.

One of these methods will work for you, and you'll be watching DVDs soon. Thanks for using Fixya!

Can you hook up a DVD player to this TV? It is a DTQ 13V5FC purchased in 2003.


I took a look at the specs for this set, and it has both front- and rear-panel audio and video input jacks. There's a button marked "VIDEO" on the remote that switches to the AV input so you can watch what you have connected. So yes, you can hook up a DVD player, but there are some limitations.

This isn't a stereo TV, so you'll need a Y-adapter (like this one from Radio Shack) to combine the right and left channel sound from the DVD player into a single mono input for the TV. This means you'll lose any stereo effects from the DVD. Also, even though there are two sets of AV input jacks, the TV can only use one at a time. You can't select the front or rear input separately.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

Can't get dvd player to work on this tv!!!


im guessing that you cant go to av mode because you dont have a remote, am I right? if thats the case you need to go to walmart and buy an RF converter. You can plug you dvd into the converter, then run a coax cable from the converter to your tv coax inout aka anteanna input, then depending on your converter switch your tv to either channel 3 or 4 and presto. it will hook up just like vcr's and onld nintendos use to. You can pick up an RF converter cheap at walmart or check e-bay, couple bucks and your watching dvds.

RCA Colortrak Stereo Monitor won't play DVD/Nintendo


The way you describe having your TV/DVD connected you wont see the picture in the regular channel line-up.
You will have to tell the TV to to switch to the video input. This is usually done by navigating the menu to the "input" and selecting video 1, video 2 etc
Failing that try changing to channel 00 ( just type 00 in remote)
Some sets will allow you to type in 02 and then hit the channel down button on the remote.

If you have the user manual it will give you the exact steps you need to take.

How can i watch dvds on this old sanyo tv?


does your tv have a scart socket or is it pre scart, if it does, and you connect the dvd player via the scart then the tv should auromativally switch to av when the dvd player is switched on. failing that, if you have no scart, then the only way you can watch dvd is by connecting a flylead from dvd player to tv, (take out antenna and put it in that socket) and then start a search if you can, normally the buttons for this are behind a flap somewhere on the tv. if you have no scart or a way of tuning tv, then i dont think you can watch dvd through that tv

Can't watch dvds with my dvd player


Try two different things 1) on some of these tv's you could try pressing 00 to see if it will put you in input mode or 2) with your remote you should be able to push the input or tv/video to go to the input selection . In both of the above make sure you push the tv button first then step 1 or 2 . Good luck

Input problem


If you have the original remote, hit video, source, or input button, if it dont have them, then try to change the tv to channel 00 (zero or zerozero), if not then the channels might have to scroll to it, from channel 02 down to make it loop, if it goes to the next highest channel, then you need a remote. It may be set in the menu options to have the video source not saved to your list of saved channels. when you scan the channels, the tv might not look for the A/V source (audio / video), maybe just the RF source. The 3 DVD RCA wires are 1 video and 2 stereo, one stereo for left and one stereo for right. The TV has only 2 , 1 for video and 1 for mono 1 channel sound. This wouldnt have anything to do with why you cant use the DVD player. but try that with the original remote (or a universal remote that is set to your tv set that has either video, input, source or something similar. It is what tells the tv to change from the cable source (RF) and the AV source (the Red White and Yellow plugs, in your TV's case, 2 plugs, one yellow and the other either red or white or something). Dont really know how to explain it much more but hope it helps.

Dvd player


Hi, where you plug the dvd cables into the tv determines where the picture will be seen; Example, if you plug the dvd players yellow, red & white cable into the tv`s "input 1" then you go to the tv`s "input" or "tv/video" button and push those buttons to get "input 1" to come up on the screen and you`ll see the picture and hear the audio, it`s kinda like a file folder in your computer, you`ve got to find the file then open it to see the contents. If your tv is on channel 3 or 5 or whatever you won`t see the picture because the picture is in video not a tv channel
