I just bought 32 lc32gp2u sharp aquos. running in 1080p with component cables from an xbox360. the screen will quickly flash black randomly during a game, it seems when ever there is any "action" or loading. tried 2 of the same tv's today, and still have the same problem. Any ideas? I know it's not the console as I have a 32" samsung with and this has never happened. Thanks
First and foremost you need to change one of two things. Either your video output settings on your xbox 360, or use an hdmi cable as opposed to component cables. Component cables are only designed to output video up to 1080i, not 1080p(big difference). So if you try to run a output signal of 1080p with cables only made to send 1080i, you will have picture issues.

T-CON has absolutely nothing to do with HDMI inputs.
it's like changing the front wind shield of a car because it doesn't turn on.
You have a particular IC failed on the main board of your Aquos - maybe more than one - likely due to a power surge through the signal cable.
A replacement of the main should fix that, if not component level repair, but considering this is 32'' unless you have someone really handy around you to help I'd say you'll be better off replacing the whole main board.
I had the same problem with a Sharp Aquos 40". Sound just for a second and the message all the time in the middle of the screen, no more sound. I opened the TV and found a speaker cable (a black one) with the PVC isolation broken and the wire in contact with the chassis. I just isolated it, the sound came back and no more error message.
Downloaded the updated firmware from the sharp website to a usb drive. Placed the drive in the TV and went to the update software option on the TV menu. Since the update, I no longer get the black-outs on the screen. I also put the resolution on the 360 back up to 1080p and it works great, even through the component cables.
