First make sure you have a good signal, one you know definitely works. Then make sure you connect to coaxial input on Television. Put television on channel 4. Which is good indicator. If no picture/ just snow. You want to access your T V's Menu. Go to Channel Set Up. You should see SIGNAL TYPE. Make sure this is set to CABLE. Right below is a AUTO PROGRAM selection. Let the Television run all the way through. You should be able to view Television as soon as this is done. Providing you have a good signal and there is only one Coaxial input on TV. If there's more than one for example ANALOG, or DIGITAL. Try each one. Each Televsion is different. This is this basic troubleshooting steps. I've done this at a hundreds of installations and trouble calls. Good Luck

42 inches LCD TV,Aqous brand. where to buy parts inthe philippines

Sometimes the lizards can cause a lot of board wear-off as they being highly conductable and when shorted within the electrical circuit can make the secretions runs into the board therby contaminating and shorting circuits. If you are able to remove and use petrol to wash off the dirt on the board, look for open tracks that have burned or corroded. If you are able to trace and rewire using thin strands of wires , and assuming that no component damage had taken place, you can try this out.
If not as suggested you need to find the cost of a new board if a final consensus is taken.

Sharp Aquos LC-52D64U LCD-52 wdscrn tht won't scan in digital...

Seeing that you have a superior brand and not getting channels is a bummer. It may have to do with the setting, make sure you're set to cable rather antenna and then do a rescan. Btw, often times channels from an over the antenna is much clearer than from cable because cable tv has to compress the signal. If you're high in the air like the top floor of a building a cheap $10 will pull in great free digital channels. It helps to experiment and read the troubleshooting guide in your manual.

I am a Sharp servicing technician and I have seen this "problem" with this particular model many times. I have tried replacing the Main Board and the Terminal Board and it does not help. The reason i put "problem" in quotes is because I came to the conclusion that this is model is just not that loud. However, a few months after the initial production run, BAM, these TV's are as loud as any other TV on the market so sharp must have caught onto this.
