Question about Sharp LC-37DB5U 37 in. HDTV LCD Television

1 Answer

Sharp LC-37DB5U stuck on one channel. Won't respond to anything. Put in a new motherboard and same problem persists. Sound and picture are fine

All the buttons on the remote and tv seem to work except for changing the channel or when you press the ENTER button to adjust or change anything like the EZ setup . Any ideas?

I could be wrong, but it sounds like the TV hasn't gone through channel setup. You have to do this in order for the TV to "learn" the channels, assuming you are using cable. If you are using cable run channel search in the setup menu and see if that changes anything. Can you change channels by manually entering in the channel # and hitting enter?

SOURCE: Remote volume control for Sharp Aquos 42inch LCD not working

User 'rapolley' is absolutely right. One can cycle through the functions to access different options, ie. 'TV', 'Audio', 'DVD', etc. I stumbled upon this solution when I thought my 'Menu' button wasn't working. All I had to do is cycle through the 'Functions' and choose 'Menu' once I get to 'TV'. Thanks!

SOURCE: TV No Picture

My 32D40U would turn on for 5-10 seconds (Please Wait would appear) and the screen would go black. Sound Normal. It would also sometimes do this after running 5-10 minutes. I read somewhere that the inverter board would come loose and lose proper ground. I took the set apart, removed the board, and cleaned up the grounding points. I reassembled using some copper paste on the ground points and LockTite on the screws. I used some contact cleaner on all the connectors going to the board. I noticed two cables that are covered with copper shield tape where too tight at their connectors and repositioned the tape to give them some slack. The problem hasn't occurred since the fix.

I plug in the cable/antennae wire and it freezes up. I can't change channels or anything. if I unplug it it changes fine, then of course I can't watch tv. I have a sharp lc-s3sb23u.


See if Sharp's customer service still walks customers through what is called an INIT or factory reset. 800-BE-SHARP. Make the television do what it does when it freezes up and then call. You might just need to scrap the television because if you need another main board the part alone will cost around $600.

Speaker distortion on SHARP 37" Aquos Hi Def


When you are changing channels you are using the tuner of the sat reeiver. the tv does not know you are changing a channel . It is just receiving a constant signal from the SAT receiver. I would suspect a problem with the receiver. Try another one first .
