Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,
Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...
Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model numbers of the BD player and the TV. Additionally, please describe how these are inter-connected using what kind of cable(s).

Appreciate the additional information.
...all using HDMI cables?
Is this a fresh / new install? ...or has the 3 been in use for some time already and this symptom of " no video on set..." a recent issue? Would the Pioneer's MENU display on the TV?
And have you checked/replaced the cables and/or verified their connection ports/jacks?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I just upgraded the Pioneer from an older pioneer today.

all HDMI
Expert:  Louie replied 2 years ago.
I understand.
Have you tried a RESET?

Reset what?
Expert:  Louie replied 2 years ago.
Would you consider a RESET of the Pioneer?
A reset is both a test and a try of a fix. As it implies, a reset would force the unit to revert back to factory defaults removing glitches and config errors but would include memories, presets and user preferences. After a reset, the initial setup would have to be performed. If have not been done and should you venture to try: please see the link below.
May have to be done a number of times.
This is very critical - a reset however would not be corrective of an internal hardware concern or even a compatibility issue; but it would be confirmed. In some instances, it may even expose other faults.

The procedure worked however it did not correct the problem. There are 6 HDMI options and none of them work with 2 different BD players.
Expert:  Louie replied 2 years ago.
I understand and sorry to hear the lack of development.
How far away are the Sony BD players to the Pioneer? ...the Pioneer from the Sharp TV?
Have you ensured that the HDMI OUTput is configured as connected? OUT P.. / ▲/▼ / OUT 1/2 / ◄/► / OUT 1+2 or OUT 1 or OUT 2 / RETURN
Have you tried either BD players directly connected to the Sharp? ...and to serve as a 'test bed' for all the HDMI cables?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Remember I'm getting the audio. The units are right on top of each other.

have you confirmed on the Pioneer that the "...HDMI OUTput is configured as OUT P.. / ▲/▼ / OUT 1/2 / ◄/► / OUT 1+2 or OUT 1 or OUT 2 / RETURN..."
