Question about Sharp LC-20S1U 20 in. LCD EDTV

Open Question

TECHVIEW TV: LTDR 2100U, 20"

Hello. I purchased a Techview TV, 20" Screen, about 2-1/2 years ago. The TV has blacked out, and I am looking for somewhere to get it repaired? Also answers as to what happened? Why would it stop working in only 2 years? I purchased the TV from Sears, 05/10/05, with a 3 year Master Protection Agreement, which ended on 05/10/08. I just want to see if I can get it repaired, and how much is it going to cost? And if the cost of repair is going to be more than the price I paid for the TV, well then, that's a "no brainer"! I will just junk the TV, and never make another purchase from the Brand, and Model again! TV's use to be built, and made to last for atleast 10 years before the picture tube would begin to blink! What happened?

SOURCE: the tv has trouble with turning on. No picture, no

Typical repair is $200 and up plus parts, your set is very BIG! and it will take at least two people just to get it to the shop.
More likely to have pwoer supply problem.

the backlight might be burned out the Televisions(LCD) use a flourecent tube to light up the screen. I would either have a professional replace the backlight or buy a new TV. I do not know about plasma TVs and how they are lit up if your TV is a plasma screen TV I woulsd consult a professional or the manufacturer of the TV for Help.

Need new remote control or code for a universal remote


After I typed in "replacement TV remotes" into the Google searchbox, I received numerous hits. One website in particular (Remotes.com) , sells several replacement remotes for Techview TVs. Their tollfree number is 1-800-REMOTES.
The Techview company is no longer in business, which explains why it is not currently listed in the TV code booklets you used.

Looking for manual and info


I would suggest borrowing or purchasing a power adapter to test this tv. Adapters are available from Ebay.

This company is out of business and finding parts is very difficult.
I need a pcb board for one of these and can not find one.
If any one has a non working 20" Techview that I could buy for parts please Email me.
