Re: Microwave

I wiggled the ribbon cable between the control board and the intermediate circut board. The LCD came back for an instant. I am sure it is this ribbon cable. It looks like it is held on with adhesive. How can it be impossible to repair if people are offering to do it less than 40.00 dollars to fix it? Someone must be selling a replacement ribbon cable that will work.

Re: Microwave

Unfortunately, Sharp (et al) have seen fit to make these displays a permanent part of the CPU board -- that is, the flex trace ribbon is bonded in such a way as to make repairs practically impossible. Even if you _could_ replace only the LCD module, you can't BUY only the LCD module, you have to buy the entire display/controller assembly.

Sharp Carousel Microwave has no power

I too believe that a "protection fuse" was possibly blown. It would need to be found and get replaced. Hopefully it is just a fuse and nothing else because the way it sounds to me, the microwave may be damaged.

Good Luck!

Hi our Sahrp Carousel microwave LCD panle display is not working

You have to replace the control board. Sharp has had problems with the display boards for awhile. There is no bulb or fuse you can change.

Sharp microwave model R-510AK led screen only showing parts of numbers programed

This is a common problem. i havent completly solved it yet but this helps.

Be very careful doing this, There is Voltages with AMPERAGES high enough to boil your blood inside a microwave.

I had mine apart cleaning it. Only one number worked on my display. I wiggled and messed around with the wires in the back of the display. And almost every number in the display works again. Hope this helps.

Sharp R-9h91B microwave oven stopped working

If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work.
