There could be either loose connections or cold solder joints in the set that are not behaving the way they should. Please do the hard reset and the whacking test first of all to clear the obvious.

HARD RESET: Unplug the power cord for 4 hours. When you power back up the internal soft codes will automatically be reset to the factory default settings. Then, go to the OSD and reset the features as you had them before.

WHACK: Just perform a little physical violence to the set. Whack or pound on the cabinet all around during its "bad" time with your hand or fist. The physical vibration will usually wakeup the poor connection or cold solder joint and restore the picture.

If the reset and whacking help, then you may be able to find some creative smackeroo that will keep it working reliably. Some have found a small book or magazine under one of the corners of the cabinet will put enough twist on the chassis to keep it working fine.

If the reset and the whacking do not help then you will need the services of a trained tech.

The lines you describe are probably retrace lines during the vertical rescan and are supposed to be kept out of view by the vertical blanking circuit. If this diagnosis is correct, the repair, if not solved by the reset or the whacking, may involve a new IC or repair of the circuits around the vertical processing IC. The cost of repair could be as low as $200, but a definitive diagnosis is necessary to determine for sure.

You may need to replace the 120k resistor on the green video output module. Resistor is located next to the green video output transistor (has heat sink). If you replace it with a 1/2 watt carbon type, it will probably never happen again. I always replace the same resistor on the red and blue video boards at the same time.

Hope this helps you make the right decision.
Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

I have a sharp acquos 42 inch lcd tv, which has worked flawlessly for about two years but, is now starting to show vertical lines that are green and sometimes they turn kind of red. They seem to appear...


The way the symptom was explained, the problem is with the LCD panel itself. Lines on screen are cause by some factors such as tft's or the control flexible contact that attached to the panel might become loose overtime, the flexible can be repaired but not at service station level. You will need to visit authorized sharp service station to have a look and get concrete diagnosis. they can decide whether the lines are repairable or not.

Sharp aquos has green and white vertical lines


You must contact a svc co. This is a upper or lower buffer board problem and possibly a control board. Nothing you have done wrong, it just happened.

Green vertical line on the right side of screen


Warranty still alive?
Hope so; the problem could be an expensive one.

The screen appearance is controlled by allowing light from a backlight through by turning pixels off and on.
This switching is done by a matrix that turns on vertical and horizontal pixels of the right shade at the right time to produce the image you see.
One of the control elements for the vertical that controls the transmission of green light from the backlight, has died (no longer switching off and on when told) and these are normally a part of the LCD screen assembly itself and not easily replaceable.

I would be talking to Sharp - this shouldn't happen in 6-7 months of use.
