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 exactly the same problem. I can unplug for days and when I turn the power back on, you hear "click, click, click..." then it goes to "view timer" and the light just flashes. While I appreciate the advice of "taking set to tech", this thing is the size of a buick so a house call is the only'd think there would be a "module" you could take out. Sharp? When their web site is working it's useless...this model is not even listed.

    Has anyone had this fixed?

Why does my reciever keep turning off by itself?

My DISH Network DVR-625 DTV Receiver randomly freezes and resets itself and will only record 6-9 minutes of a program even though i have 50+ hours of available space. i've reset it several times. help?


I am sorry you are having problem with your picture freezing. You said you reset the receiver several times. Did you press the power on the receiver and release or did you unplug the receiver from the electrical outlet? Try unplugging it for about 10 seconds if you haven't already done so. If the problem persists, we'll need to replace the receiver. If you have any other questions, please post to this site.

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.

TV turned off itself and timer light (red) keeps blinking

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.

JVC tv "stuck" on sleep timer

I think you would have to turn off the sleep timer mode completely or increase its ON time span, say to 4 hours or so
or the lenth of time you have the TV on for. If that does not fix it then it sounds like a STANDBY MODE fault problem.
Hope this helps.

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)
