Question about Sharp LC46SB54U 46 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

I have only had my TV 2 and a half months and i am now getting a green ghosting effect at certain points. It only lasts 20- 30 seconds then fades but for the length of time i have had it i do not think this should ever be occuring. Its on all my channels from Freeview to HDMI when on PS3 so I reckon it must be an Internal problem. It is still under warranty

SOURCE: I have a sharp aquos tv. If i leave the tv paused,

Sharp does not build plasma tv's. Its an LCD and yes older LCD's do get burn-in also. Its not as bad as Plasma, it is a bit of a problem it ruins the LCD panel. If out of warranty when this happens turn off Tv and allow it to cool down a bit, if in warranty have the replaced the panel.

Hope this help

SOURCE: Have a thin green line

If the line is there constantly, unchanged, then it's a hardware defect in the LCD panel itself. This is unfixable, the panel will gonna have to be replaced.
Your tv is still in the warranty so don't try to open it yourself or you'll void the warranty. Look in the purchase papers, in there it will be specified which is the company responsible for the warranty servicing. Big shops usually have their own service departments, smaller ones leave that to the dealers of the manufacturers or (even worse) to independent repair shops. You will have to contact them by phone first and arrange a drop off.

This could be due to some magnetic effect. If you have kept any electronic items near to your TV then the magnectic effects of that device might have intercepted with TV. One method to get rid of it is, there is an option called 'Deguass' in my LG TV. the name of it('Degauss') can differ in your TV. By selecting that option it will clear of any such patches that happened due to magnetic effect
