Question about Sharp 55R-WP4H 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

View timer is stuck on

My view timer has been stuck on and I am unable to receive a picture. I have unplugged the TV for hours at a time and even overnight and the TV set will not reset itself. When I turn on the TV it goes right to view timer mode and the red light is blinking. Does anyone have a solution to this problem I called Sharp and they were no help.

I have rear projection tv sharp 55u-wp7h. Unable to turn on tv due to view timer automatic turn on. what cause that and how to fix the problem?

I'm having same issue with same TV. It powers off after about an hour and red power light starts flashing. Only way to power back on is by unplugging TV and waiting a while, then plugging it back in, but then the TV will turn off again after a few more minutes, red light flashing again. I've checked the sleep timer and it is turned off, so any other solutions to this problem? All capacitors on power board look fine (not blown). I've read it could be solder joints in power board need to be resoldered.

Turn off after a few hours

If the TV turn itself off then perform the following steps:

(i) Check if the Sleep timer is activated.

(ii) Check if the Parental Guide prohibits viewing during that time and/or limits amount of viewing time per day.

(iii) Check the batteries on your remote, low battery power may cause random signals from the remote.

(iv) Disconnect all the cables from the TV then reconnect them after a few hours.

(v) Ensure the power cord from the TV is directly connected to a functional wall outlet.

(vi) You may also try resetting the TV to the original factory settings by pressing the Reset button on the remote control supplied with the TV when in Menu.

The following is the information indicated by the blinking patter of the standby/timer lamp on the TV:

2 times : Power does not come on.
Load on power line shorted.

3 times : The TV has entered standby mode.

4 times : Has entered standby state after
horizontal raster.
Vertical deflection pulse is
Power line is shorted, or
power supply is stopped.

5 times: No raster is generated.
CRT Cathode current detection
reference pulse output is small.

6 times: No picture

9 times : No sound

Furthermore, the TV is equipped with a self-diagnosis function that you can use to determine whether the issue is related to any hardware malfunctioning. Perform the step given below to run self diagnosis:

Quickly press the remote command button in the following order from the standby state.

Display -------> Channel 5 ---------> Volume -(minus) --------> Power ON.

If the Self Diagnosis display numeral "1" for any parameters then a fault has been detected and service will be required.

wish u good luck!!!!!!!!!!

I have the tv in standard mode, but I am unable to

I bet you are using a cable box or satelite receiver. If so check for aspect buttons on the remote that control these devices. I know comcast says "HD Zooom".

Timer blinking all the time can't turn TV ON.

The TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Will not turn off

It sounds like the contacts on the on-off relay are stuck on. You can tap the top of the relay cover and that will shut it off (releasing the contacts) For a permanent fix, try taking the plastic cover off the relay and clean the contacts with a file (or just replace the relay)
