Question about Sharp 36U-F810 36" TV

3 Answers

No picture or sound

When the power on button is pressed, you can hear a click sound after a few seconds but no picture or sound. The picture tube seems to energized because upon touching the screen there is static. Is this a start up circuit problem?

Re: No picture or sound

It sounds more like a shut down circuit problem if you can feel static from the face of the picture tube after it tries to start up. There are several things that can trigger a shut down condition on TV's. For instance, if there is no vertical deflection signal present, the set may shutdown to prevent a permanent line being burnt across the front of the tube. If the power supply wasn't regulating the B+ voltage properly, it would shutdown to prevent damage in the horizontal sweep section. Or if the horizontal deflection circuit was defective and allowing the high voltage to climb too high (say above 33,000 volts) then the sensing circuit would trigger a shutdown event. If any of the above sounds like gibberish to you then you will need to take the set to a professional for repair.

Re: No picture or sound

Your problem sounds like what our RCA does once in a while. The service tech actually suggested we unplug it for a while and plug it back in. I thought he was crazy myself, but it worked with our TV. Henlopen sounds as if he knows a lot more about it though.

Set will often have problems starting back up

you have a high voltage arching problem. the crt has about 33000. (thirty three thousand) volts on it. the anode lead is arching to the chassis(ground) around the crt(picture tube). the anode lead is the big red wire on the very top of back of crt. with the back off, you will see the big red wire and it will have a suction cup about 4 inches round connecting to picture tube. unplug. silicone around suction cup. let dry for 24 hours. enjoy. you might get a little shocked even when unplugged, but wont hurt you.

Power clicks on and red power light flashes but no picture

The problem might come from the fuse inside was blow out. if you have a multimeter then open the rear cover. The fuse lays near the power cord. Take it out and use Ohm meter to check it connectivity. If it is no connectivity meaning the fuse was blow out. Replace a new one with the same value (Ampere and Voltage). If it does have connectivity, the problem needs technician to find out as it relates to many parts on the circuit board.

Flashing Standby/Stero light and No picture.

How good is your picture when it did come ? Is it as good as it once was ? Or is it alittle washed out. If it is washed out the picture tube is weak . Sometimes turning up the screen control alittle would solve problem but if you turn it up too much you would have faint white line running diagonally. Now if you think the picture was good before you this problem video circuit would be your suspect . Jungle IC or something in the RGB circuits . Good luck
