Question about Sharp Aquos LC-46D62U 46 in. LCD HDTV

Full screen I just purchased a sharp LC46D64U and can't figure out how to make it full screen. There are black lines to the left and right. I tried the screen options but still cannot get the picture to take up the entire screen. Please help. Thanks!

The black lines are because you are playing the analog 4:3 picture on a newer 16:9 shaped screen. If you don't have the manual, you can get it by going to www.sharpusa.com and search for your tv model listed. The user guide is available in pdf format.

According to page 35, you need the "view mode" button on your remote. You sound like you want it set to "S" for "Stretch".

enjoy your TV,

You are watching a 3/4 NTSC image on a wide screen; that will be normal. The remote control should allow you to use the 'streach' mode to fill the screen, but everything will appear distorted a little. If you tune to an HD channel, then it should fill up. Consult your operators manual for settings.

My Sharp tv was affected by a power surge and I have no power. Is there a way to determine if it is the power supply? Thanks


Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

I have an old Sharp Model # 27A-S100 I have a Black Line running across the bottom of my screen from left to right 22 1/2" length and 3 1/4" in height


If this line does not go all the way across the screen then I will bet you this is an easy fix. Press the menu button on the remote control. The menu will hopefully show up over-top the black. Search your menu for the closed caption setting (usually under audio settings menu) and turn closed caption OFF. Hopefully this fixes your issue. Cheers.

I have a 37 in sharp lcd tv. it has a black line in the middle of the screen. looks like it burnt into the screeen. is this repairable?


Hello,

IF YOU HAVE A SOLID BLACK LINE RUNNING VERTICALLY THEN YOU HAVE A FAULTY MATRIX INVERTER. IF CENTRAL THE MAIN VERTICAL INVERTER NEEDS CHANGED. LEFT = LEFT VERTICAL INVERTER RIGHT=RIGHT.........

ANOTHER WAY TO GET THIS FAULT IS WORN OR DAMAGED RIBBON/PLASTIC GOING FROM THE SCREEN MATRIX TO THE INVERTER


Hope this help.....

Sharp lc46d64u screen has vertical green lines


Unfortunately my friend, there is not a whole lot that can be done. Sharp has a great limited warranty, but it does NOT cover ANY problems due to physical damage. Getting screens replaced often times cost more than the tv itself. Save yourself the trouble of getting pissed off at sharp because they wont help you if you decide to call and replace the tv. Good luck 2 u

Line in middle of LCD screen


I too had a black line horizontally across the screen (on a 52" d62). It was brand new and was as if the screen had been "pinched" at the end of the line and it radiated outward (in my case, the "pinch" was at the extreme left and line went out to the right, like a crack).

Mine was a factory defect (right out of the box) and was replaced (2 yr now and no issues). This line of yours may have been there from the start and maybe you just didn't notice it?? Not a slam, just an observation.
