Question about Sharp 32C-240 32" TV

2 Problems: Color tint and Weird sound

Problem 1: Ok first of all it's a Sharp 32in TV, not like all the other topics which seem to span all sorts of TV's, why is that? Anyway the problem I have is, well sometimes while watching TV 2 color spots will pop up on the TV one on the left and one on the right. The left is like a yellowish and the right is more of a purpleish, hard to see but if you try they are noticable and annoying. We haven't had the TV long before this started either, maybe a couple months or so but it eventually goes away it's just random. It's almost as if someone is putting a magnet up to the screen in those 2 areas. Nothing around it seems to be the problem and the only thing on top of it is a DVR from our cable company and I tried moving it to see if the colors moved at all and nothing! help, thanks

    Problem 2:
    Ok the 2nd one is kinda the same thing in a sort of ways where as it's also random. But at certain times the TV will start making this annoying like beeeeeeeeeeeeep sound but it's just a constant and keeps going for a while and then eventually just stops. So it's on and off at random times also.
    Now I had this same problem with a monitor I bought for my computer where when a white screen or bright colored screen popped up it would start that ringing or beeep sound (however you wanna call it). To make it go away sometimes you could just bring up a dark screen and it would be gone or sometimes it would just stay for a while and was louder than the TV one and even more annoying. The way I fixed it was going to settings in the Display properties and then the Monitor tab and changing the screen refresh rate to 85hertz when it was set on something lower like 60 or 65. This is just something that I have had a problem with in something before, not something I need help on but just figured I'd throw that in as well, thanks if anyone helps

    Well it's acctually my brothers TV, he got it last year with the Monopoly Best Bucks to get some money off it. He didn't get a warrenty on it though so that part is useless, and I don't really know too much about opening and messing around with TVs on the inside plus I doubt he would let me do that anyway. I guess unless he takes it to get fixed nothings really gonna happen about it then, would those have any long term affects on the TV. Like would the colors eventually stay there on the screen and would the noise eventually just neve stop lol?

  • Rob Cichacki Oct 22, 2006

    Well here's a more updated situation, the only other things I can really say are we have the DVR on top like I said and so we have Digital Cable. But on that note the TV is plugged in through the DVR since it has a plug for it, would that cause any problems? The TV is also in the basement on top of a metal file cabinet. It's pretty much the only TV used in that area since it's the biggest and has the Cable box (DVR) there is a Switch(Router kind) near it but I doubt that's the problem. I'm guessing it's gotta be something in the TV itself and not really anything around it because everything worked when we got it. But also I think we got the DVR after the TV so maybe that has some play but I kinda doubt it, so tell me what ya guys think as far as that stuff goes. If any

Spurrious Colours on the screen. If the colours are there on all the TV channels and DVD or VCR or whatever you are looking at, then I agree with jomaru; it must be the tube. Incidentally have you tried simulating it with a magnet?, but do not bring the magnet too close as it may become permanent. When you switch off, and after a few minutes switch on again, the de-gaussing coil behind the tube should energise at mains frequency with a decaying amplitude lasting a few seconds. The alternating magnetic field created should be strong enough to wipe out any permanent magnetic effects which may be stored in the MU-Metal shield. The shield is necessary to screen the Earths magnetic field, and other random fields that may be present. You may need to disconnect, and reconnect the set from the mains to activate the de-gaussing operation. (If it is working!). Another cause of spurrious audio noise and coloured patterns or effects is if the tuner, or input circuits, are picking up from another TV station, or signal source. Satelite dishes for example do not focus sharp enough, so will pick up the signal from an adjacent satelite working on the same frequency. Another source could be a powerful transmitter closeby breaking into the TV's Intermediate Frequency section.

The answer to the first question is your picture tube is bad,I hope you have warranty left and you can put a claim,this ia a very rare symptom but I have seen it and sometimes no even a new picture tube takes care of the problem because all the crt used came from the same production line or the same type of tube.The only good thing is that the spots are not there all the time. The noise can be cause by a coil or transformer and is also intermitant,this one is easier to find because the moment you touch the noisy coil it stops or changes tone and that is how you know you found it.I need to be replaced with an exact replacement part.If you are familiar with tv service you can remove the back and with a wooden or rubber handle you can press lightly on any coil or small transformer and you will se how it changes or stops,if you are not too familiar with tv service be safe and seek the help of a servicer.Let Us know how it goes.

Sorry, but I have seen this problem three times already. It is a bad connection in the deguassing circuit or an intermittant part.

Common Projection TV Problems and Fixes


In this article we will will outline some of the most common projection TV problems, fixes, pros and cons, and average lifespan.
Average Lifespan: 7-20 YearsPros: Large screen size and excellent picture quality. Some model support HD. Very reliable when they are cared for.
Cons: Heavier and bulkier than the newer plasma or LCD sets so if you live in a cardboard box it may take up a bit more room.
Common Problems/Fixes
Common Problem #1 - Convergence: One the most common problems that you will run into eventually is a convergence failure. This is when the TV colors do not align anymore and the TV will look 3D, warped or distorted. This is a very common problem and a fairly simple DIY fix. Parts to repair this can be found over the internet from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com . Below are a few photos of a typical convergence problem and a link to a video on YouTube with more details.
utube.png You-Tube video "9oI1Nzq7CR8" placeholder (do not delete) utube.png

Notice how the image looks 3D...this is a classic example of a convergence failure...it may also look warped or have a wave look. But the wave will not fluctuate.
4_25_2012_12_45_22_am.jpg
Common Problem #2 - Dull or Dark Video
The second most common problem we see on projection TV sets is whats known as the dull video issue. This is commonly caused by discolored cooling fluid in the lenses. Over many years - usually around 5-7 years - the fluid will discolor and cause the video to wash out or look dull. Changing the CRT fluid out every 7-10 years will restore the image clarity back to factory new conditions. You will actually be amazed at how sharp and clear the video looks once a fluid repair has been done.
Here is a before and after photo notice how it looks washed out. In some cases the images will look like they have halos around them or the screen will have a reddish tint. Bottom line - if your projection TV has never had the lens fluid replaced the video is not as sharp as it can be. You can get fluid kits from the same sites mentioned above. Doing this repair yourself or through a shop will make the video look amazing.

Common Problem #3 - Dead set with no videoIn these cases there can be more than one common issue depending on the TV brand and model. But to make things simple if the TV has no audio or video and its making a constant chirping sound the issue is caused by a short in the convergence. The fix is to do a convergence repair. If however its not chirping constantly it can be one of many issue from failed capacitors, diodes, flybacks, etc.

I purchased a Sharp Aquos 32" television Model LC32D50U on 2006/10/26 from a company A & B Sound in Edmonton. The company is no longer in business. I also purchased a 4 year warranty on LCD TV, Parts...


If the extended warranty was bought solely through that company and was not officially through Sharp,you may be screwed as far as the extended warranty since they are out of business.If the warranty was officially through Sharp,it should not be a problem as there should be other authorized Sharp repair centers locally where you are.I take it you're in Canada?I would at least contact Sharp to find out about the warranty issue.I am providing the global link for you so when you call,have your warranty information on hand(obviously).If the warranty is not confirmed/approved or whatever by them,ask to speak to a supervisor about it.They will have better ability about possibly honoring it out of good faith or discounted service or anything.Be as persistent as possible if it gets to this point.Also,there may be an easy fix to your problem,if so they will know(doesn't sound like it though).Seeing how you probably have to open the menu button,scroll to tint,color or contrast,it's not likely to be just a stuck button.That's all I have for now.Hope all goes well eh.Good luck!

Updated! Convergence Problems & Solutions - With example photos


Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Below are more details for both items. Also, complete repair kits with instructions and repair support are avail from site such as www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. The power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.





SOLUTION #1

What you will need to do is convergence. You can get a repair kit from TvRepairKits.com . It includes replacement parts,step by step instructions, support, etc.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

SOLUTION

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from TvRepairKits.com . It includes replacement coolant,step by step instructions, support, etc.
