I have a Sharp Aquos LC-46D 92U and all works well when connecting auxiliary items such as a DVD player or a digital video camera using HDMI cables. However when I use older style RCA cables (white/red/yellow) I get SOUND but not PICTURE. I confirmed that the "AUDIO ONLY" function is set to "ON" but the problem persists.

Re: Sound, but no picture
The hdmi inputs on this unit go directly thru the main digital pcb. and the component inputs feed thru the av pcb then to the main pcb. If the composit hook up do not work and hdmi inputs do work the unit has a bad AV pcb.

Use the HDMI cable on the Roku. The reason you don't have audio from the laptop is because the HDMI out on the laptop has no audio on it. You need to use a 3.5 mm audio cable to connect the laptop audio to the TV.
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?
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.
First off a little tip that manufacturers don't tell you is that you HAVE to TURN OFF the POWER to ANY UNITS that you are Connecting to via HDMI!!!!!!!
If not you can short out the Inputs!!!!!!!!
HDMI is usually Automatic, But sometimes you need to go into the Menus on all Devices to the HDMI section and write down their settings and compare them.
Any definition that you are not sure of check the Manual or Google it!
Match all the Settings (there won't be Much!)
Hopefully the Inputs were not Damaged it only takes one time to short it out and then the Repairman makes a few bucks!
it sounds like a problem within your vga connection on the tv check around and see if there is some firmware for this fix or right click on your desktop were there is no icons and select properties select settings tab and set ur display as needed.
try this 1st theres a setting on your dvd player. try to play with it a bit if that doesnt work. look at cable your using. If your using a Component cable you might have switched them wrong. if still that doesnt work try other forms of cable like S-video or HDMI or just plain Composite Video.
