Question about Sharp 32F640 32" TV

Sharp 32F640 32" TV works intermittently

I have a Sharp 32F640 32" TV that works beautifully when it works. Sometimes when turning it on, it attempts to turn on but will not. We can unplug it for a period of time and try turning it on again. Sometimes it will then turn on and sometimes it will not. We live at the beach. Could the moisture or salt in the air be causing this? If so, what can I do to fix it and stop it from occurring?

Re: Sharp 32F640 32" TV works intermittently

The easiest thing to check is for loose conections because the unit is intermitant,the chassis should be check out for overheated areas and cracked solder joints in the power supply,horizontal driver and all the diodes and resistor off the secondary of the output trnasformer(flyback),if you are familiar with tv service this will help but if you are not too familiar be safe and call for assistance form a servicer.No doubt humidity can damage anything with time.

  1. Replace D 6116 and D 6301 on the "G" board, do not re-solder as this will fix the problem temporary. Or Panel Module Error or Thermal Error. If it is intermittent 9 blinks, meaning sometimes the TV comes on and other times you get flashing, then change the switching regulator on the "G" board or check connections. Make sure the regulator is -12 or -13 (negative). ( blinks of standby light to Sony CRT based TVs denotes this. Check this link, if you wish to know more.

If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair! Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock! Instead, contact the nearest service center!

Degauss sharp tv

If your TV needs degaused. You can leave your TV unpluged for about 30Mins, and the built in degausing circuit should work and clear the problem up. Sometimes the built in degausing will not work correctly when hot, because of the thermisitor is to high in resistance when hot.

I have a Sony FD Trinitron Wega (KV-32HS510). When I attempt to turn the tv on by pressing the power button on the remote or on the tv, the standby light comes on and I hear two clicks but tv don't...

The primary power supply is good,maybe the horizontal output transistor is deffective thats why there is no high voltage supply in the picture tube because theflyback have no supply voltage and oscilation.So check the harizontal output transistor and replace if deffective.

Mitsubichi VS 45609. When I turn the TV on sometimes it comes on and has beautiful picture and sound. Then after 1/2 or so it goes to a black screen. While on the black screen I am able to PIP it and see...

I have the same TV and what is happing is the TV has 2 recievers in it to allow the PIP, So you have a power pack gone on 1 reciever the other is working, Your set has 2 power packs,1 for each receiver.
I had both of mine go, 150$ a piece to have fixed, good luck.

Tv monitor will not turn on sometimes.The power light will blink but not go on.

Do you mean that your set operates sometimes and other times it won't? If it's never working and the power light is blinking that would indicate there is a failure in the power supply or the deflection circuitry. Either of which is not an easy fix. If it works normally sometimes and not others it indicates that you have an intermittent problem which is usually caused by failed soldered connections someplace on the main board.

Mike-It looks like the power supply is going on your tv-it can be replaced. This happens, usually, when little kids are playing wth the remote or power button on the tv. Turn it off and on a whole bunch of times in a row, kids love to do that, and it burns out the power supply part- to make a CRT tv like your RCA36 incher- which is a beautiful machine- I have the RCA/PROSCAN 36 incher-LAST longer...You should always wait 5 min between turning it off and on. Don't ever sell it. This one is worth fixing. It has better color and sound Than the new plasmas and lcds-The Pros know this. Be carefull, they might try and talk you out of it-so they can fix it and have it for themselves. So what if it's not High Deff. It's a great set.
