How to Set Up a Sharp Aquos and a DVD Player

Updated February 21, 2017

The Sharp Aquos is a brand of flat-screen LCD television sets with a variety of inputs for connecting audio-video components, including a DVD player. The set-up for a DVD player requires a composite AV cable with three colour-coded plugs on each end. By matching the plug colours to the jacks, the DVD player easily connects to an Aquos TV in a matter of minutes.
