Question about Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. LCD HDTV

Open Question

Dark line across bottom of screen

I have a Sharp Aquos 42in LCD TV. After being on for an hour or so a dark band appears at the bottom of the screen. The band takes up about the bottom quater of the screen, is darkest in the left corner and lightens to the right. I have read suggestions about the closed captioning, but this is not the problem because I have that turned off. When I play with the remote to try and fix the problem the words that come on the screen in this area seem to burn in for a few seconds and slowly face into the darkened spot. The only remedy is to turn the set off for at least 20 min. Any help is greatly appriciated.
Thanks, James

    I also have a faint horizontal line going right across and don't know what it is or how to sort it. Please help.

    I just got a thin dark line going across the bottom of the screen about 6" from the bottom. Line appears regardless of the source. Our TV is about 18 months old.

    I had a repair guy look at my TV. He said there is a pannel going out so the TV has to be replaced because sharp wont replace the pannels......now all I have to do is deal with sharp.

SOURCE: Cable/Analog Icon on screen

Usually the DISPLAY Button on your TV remote will toggle through several different functions: 1 sec, 5 sec, Always on..... Press button until display on TV is off. Or see if there is an ON SCREEN DISPLAY portion in the TV Menu and turn it to off if you have not checked that already.

SOURCE: Turned on set....screen all black except a dark blue rectangle in center which reads:Failed to receive broadcast [E202]

That message is presented when a selected digital channel is too weak to decode. Let us hope that something was accidentally changed:

Is the channel legitimate?
Is the antenna/cable still connected (to the Digital input)?
Go into menu - setup - channel setup. Is the selection of either cable or air channels correct for your situation?
Use menu - setup - Antenna Setup-DIGITAL to examine the signal strength. Is there nothing at all, or is it just a question of strength?

Odds favor a change in channel setup that you would not have made intentionally, or a simple physical problem (input cable, etc.). Start from scratch, and check the settings and connections you originally made. Hopefully it will be simple and cheap!

Change input device to some other like a DVD player.
Switch off TV, switch off power, remove plug and wait for 48 hours and retry. If problem persists, call in a qualified service technician.

Faint horizontal lines from top to bottom after an hour of use...


I can tell you right off the bat that is a service issue you will have to take up with sharp. Contact their operational support, they have a quick turnaround with things like that. When you call, they will most likely ask you to take digital pictures of these black lines and have you e-mail the pics to them.
