Re: Sharp 28JW73H

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 Sharp TV's Stand-by Mode (Red), Model 14V-K80M, turns ON, turns GREEN when the other button is pressed but turns back to RED after a few seconds.


Your tv set may have an overload in the supply line. Check its rectifier diode and filter capacitor. Another approach is to check if the DC supply line of the switch mode controller IC (UC4842 for exemple).is present (10/12V). If these are OK, replace the switching MOSFET transistor and check the source resitor for open circuit.

How do I tune TV channels on my Sharp CX48G4 TV without a remote control? There is no tuning / settings panel on the TV itself which is very strange.

press the preset button on the front panel once then (TV should be on) the on the screen there should be words the likes of (Auto VHF 1 60.00mhz) now the Auto stands for auto tuning VHF stands for its frequency where its going to search the 1 stands for the channel where its going to start with 60.00mghz stands for the lowest signal to which its going to start now that you have understood all that just press the volume up button then it will automaticly locate all your working channels leave till it stops for when does it will start from channel 1 to which I believe that you be able to see the channel working so press the up button on the channel button to check the rest of your channels hope this will solve your problem!

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!!

Practice visual acuity technique! Solder any/all bad connects,look for over-heated area, check caps in power supply,horiz.and vertical circuitry.Possible slow charging cap.

Tv does not power on

Do a Hard Reset. Unplug the power cord and cable for 4 hours. If the power protection circuit has taken over the set due to some shorted conditions internally, then the hard reset should allow you to turn it back on but if the condition remains, it will just go into auto off again. This means there is a hardware problem that is locking up the protection circuit. Since there are so many possible areas in the set that can cause this, you will need a service tech to do the hands-on diagnosis for it.

TV won't turn on.

It sounds like you have problem with the switch on the tv itself. try opening the front panel where switch is located and check wiring or maybe change the switch which you can get it online.
