TV/VCR/Stereo Troubleshooting/hdmi not working on tv

Question
Hi, My sharp hd tv hdmi output is not working-the hdmi cable and direct tv box work on our other tv, any way I can fix it or bypass it?
Thank you

Answer
Have you tried using the component or composite connections?  The most reliable, but not necessarily the best picture is when using composite (yellow, red and white cables).  Give that a try.  If still no good you may have to call in a service tech.

Let me know if you need more.
