    I've lurked on this site for years now and have found lots of good information so I'm turning to it now for a problem.

    I purchased a Sharp Aquos 60" LCD last week. I easily connected my PS3 and HR20 DRV to HDMI Input1 and Input3. Yesterday I was watching TV via the HR20 with no problem. Turned it off, ran some errands etc..., came back and when I turned on the TV the input was blank then jumped to TV (which doesn't have a signal). I hit the input button on the TV remote to find that both inputs now have the circle with a slash and I cannot select them. I removed then replaced each connection to the TV - still it did not return to useable state. I moved both HDMI connections to other inputs, one of which is on the side port area of the TV (not my desired location).

    I've e-mail Sharp but have yet to receive a reply back (probably due to the weekend) so I thought I'd try here.

    I'm not a big TV geek but know and understand the basics. (I guess that's because I'm a girl... :)

    Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks

    If you bought this unit last week I would be contacting the folks that sold it to you and getting it replaced, or at least having them make effort on the problem.

    Where did you buy the Sharp?

    I'd say just get it replaced from the store you bought it from and at least you got to use your inputs for a while i just got a new Sony 52" 52S5100 and none of the hdmi inputs work out of the box they are going to replace it with another one; so i'd say call the store and get a new one out

    Got it at BestBuy - Tomorrow I'll call Sharp and then BestBuy about replacement/problem resolution. Found it odd that both inputs would just go like that. I'm lucky to have the other inputs to fall back on... at least for now.

    Okay ... did I mention I'm a girl. I decided to get the book and checkout what it said about inputs. Well, I'm an idiot. My inputs are fine - input 1 and 3 are component and I don't have those connected so that's why they are blocked out. For some reason, all of the other input devices that aren't connected are switchable. So, basically I was just confused as to which inputs I had the PS3 and DRV connected to in the first place. (It's kind of hard to see/read back there.)

    I didn't need to confess my stupidity but thought I'd provide closure to this.

    I think I'll stick to lurking. :lol:
