You do not need a sub woofer, if you have one great If not don't worry that will not damage the unit it has a internal switch to turn on/off the sub woofer The sub woofer offers extra deep bass that you can't get from the sattalite speakers.)

After a few hours of looking on line and finding nothing I decided to make my own Sharp Receiver connectors. Here are the steps that I took:


_1349.jpgItems I used were wire strippers, wire snips, a file and a sugar free Rockstar (not pictured items: computer power supply, fine grit sandpaper and zip-ties).


_1350.jpg The first this I did was find the 4 pin connector and the 20 pin connector (some times a 16 pin) on the pc power supply and i cut the wires so that there was about 10" to 12" of wire hanging from each connector. These are the 2 connectors need from the power supply to use in your Sharp Receiver.


_1351.jpg This is the smaller of the 2 connectors (the 4 pin) and nothing needs to be done with this one. It fits perfectly into the back of the Sharp Receiver into the area labeled " surround sound". I would just zip tie the wires 3" from the connector and then 6" from the connector.


_1352.jpg The large connector I cut from the pc power supply is the one where all the work needs to be done. The Sharp Receiver requires an 8 pin connector for the are labeled "front speakers/center speakers/sub woofer". Notice the location of the clip for this connector and that it is centered, we need this clip to remain in the center when we are done so re are going to have to remove every thing from it except for the center 8 pins.


_1353.jpg What I did to get the connector to look like this picture is I cut the 6 pins off on both ends of the connector (you would only cut the 4 pins off both end if you are using a 16 pin connector from the power supply). after I cut those pins off I just pulled the wires out from the back side (they come out very easy after you cut the pins off). Now we need to get rid of the extra plastic where we cut the pins. Please view the next 2 pictures before you begin to do your cut.


_1354.jpg
_1355.jpg Notice how I left the plastic intact surrounding the 8 remaining pins we are using. I know that it seems like common sense to do it this way but there's people out there who would have cut the plastic so the pins we need are showing. There may be some jagged edged now from where u cut the extra plastic so to get rid of that we are going to use a file or a grinder. Don't grind the sides completely down though, I left a little bit of the ridges because the new ends have thin plastic walls and if you leave a little of the ridges, it will make it a little stronger.


_1356.jpg I tried to put my, now 8 pin, connector in the back of my Sharp Receiver and it was really snug. This is where the fine grit sandpaper comes in handy. just go around each of the 8 pins with the sandpaper, not a lot, just enough so the pins slide into the plug easy and doesn't wiggle. I used 2 zip-ties on this connector also to secure the wired a little more. Again, 3" and 6" from the connector. Now its ready to be plugged into the area labeled "front speakers/center speakers/sub woofer".


_1357.jpg This is what it should look like when you are all done making the speaker connectors for your Sharp Receiver. All that's left is to connect your speaker wires to your speaker connectors and then all of your components.
I only found 1 website that had the parts for this unit for sale and it was about $50 plus shipping for the connectors. You can get the computer power supply from your local area on www.craigslist.org for $5 or $10, you might have one lying around. If you have any questions or need additional help with this please feel free to email me: jlusk80 @ gmail.com
Thanks for reading my solution!

I know this answer is kinda late for the original poster but I have that system and have been using it for more than three years with no remote. All you do is plug it in, the unit should be in stand by mode, then press the large power button on the front off and then on. The unit will click and then power on. :)

These are all the parts for the HT-DP3000 but may be cheaper just to make some yourself.

The source of your program will determine how you hook things up, and if you want to (if it's possible) route the video through the Sharp as well. Some systems have video switching, so you can run all sources through the system, and have a single video cable running to the TV.

If you are using a DVD player, typical Pro-Logic requires a red/white RCA cable from the DVD player to the amplifier unit. The video cable, either a 4-pin S-Video or a yellow composite cable, will run to the amplifier unit for switching purposes, or ditect to an input on the TV.

You can also run red/white RCAs fron the HDTV to an input on the Sharp. You likely have to set the TVs audio output to "fixed" or "external", which will disable the TVs speakers, while putting out sound to the Sharp.

Sounds like board under buttons is dirty; I would take the remote apart, clean the board with alcohol & cotton and re-assemble.

Best luck...

Check the power outlet for power.
Check the back for a screw-cap button fuse.

If that doesn't work, take it to a service centre.

**won't turn on. Contraction for 'will not'.

Other than unpluggingfrom the mains (if haven't been tried) for an extended period of time (say overnight), there are no reset procedures applicable to this CD shelf system. The idea is to force the unit to revert back to factory defaults.

Almost always, a faulty speaker/connection would short out the output stages hence the 'PROTECT' error message. The only time this messge would be gone is when the built-in diagnostics no longer senses the fault, i.e. after it has been repaired.Sorry.

refocus the lens. You are using twice the correct focal length, which is reversing the image.
