Lynda, could be why someone was selling it? It could have a bad connection inside the set somewhere that needs to be addressed asap as it will get worse, or a power regulator is bad. This will oneday make the set not turn on anymore without a repair job. Also make sure the outlet your pluging it into isent loose. Sorry i couldnt assist you more with this. Good Luck

My television problem is the channel is keep on changing automatically non stop. How can i go to channel tunning? This problem was happened just 11 months when i bought it and i send it to the Sharp...

Hello, there are three options for such failure, the first and simplest is to try to get the remote control out of the room while the TV is off when it is in stand bye. A second possibility is the micro switches in front of the TV, you can verify that they cause failure by disconnecting the cable that connects them to the main board. If the problem stops, you will need to replace all the front switches. And now the last option, however the more expensive one, that there is a malfunction of the micro-processor circuit, from which comes the command to turn on the TV. let me know if that was helpful! Please come back to me, if you have any questions or if you need further guidance

Error code L6

L6 is a Polygon Motor Lock

You could try to reset the machine with a simulation code 14, which to perform it:
1. Push Clear, Auto, Clear, Auto in a steady rythmic fashion. If done correctly the screen will go blank and all the lights will turn off. If done incorrectly wait 15 seconds then try again. Clear is the red "C" and auto is on the left hand side, the word auto directly above the button.

2. Once you're into this mode enter the number 14 as if you were doing 14 copies then push the green copy key.

If the L6 returns after the reset then you will need service on the machine, Sharp will fix it for a flat rate charge of $140.00 for parts and labor out of warranty. Give them a call 1800 237 4277 in this case.

T.V. turning on

yes my 26" sharp aquous LCD does the same thing, turns itself off and on at random times without explanation. I sent to authorized service center they replaced the power supply under warranty then it failed within 6 months and neither the repair center nor sharp will do anything about it other than sell me a new powersupply for $425.00. I have contacted a power supply repair center in Texas who has vowed to fix it once and for all. We'll see in the next week if they fix it or not.

Sharp TV switches to "input 2"

There's an option on the menu to tuen 'demo mode' on and off. If it's set to on, that's your problem. It will be switching input sources every 2 minutes or so. Switch this off and it'll be ok again.

Sharp TV switches to "input 2"

Mine does the exact same thing. I've had it for a few years no, and it just started doing this. It's so annoying. I don't think the weather has anything to do with it, though. It started switching itself just every once in a while, not it is almost every time I turn it on. Sometimes it takes an hour or so to start doing this, other times it's right away. Help!!
