Question about Sharp 55R-WP4H 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Adjusting visuals on the TV does nothing

My problem this time is that the TV seems very dark when watching something from an HD component. When I went to the menu to adjust the color and brightness, the TV didn't adjust to any different settings, I also tried changing the settings on non-HD components and they also did not recognize a change. Any ideas?

Re: Adjusting visuals on the TV does nothing

This problem may have been coming from the Flyback Transfromer or the Tippler, you have to be a technician to adjust that! if you are, well first thing is to put the TV ON and sent up all the level to max for the brightness & Contrast, then after try to adjust the Flyback screen voltage for hi bright, if it work there, try back now to see if you are getting any control of the menu of brightness & contrast to work! please be careful, there about 28K volts to 35K volts, this can kill anyone... IF YOU ARE NOT A TECHNICIAN PLEASE DO NOT OPEN THIS TV.... RandyXi CriticaL PaniX

TV won't turn on, possible lamp failure.

I would suggest, since you have some technical background, that you download the manual for your set.
This site seems to have the best prices of any around:

Digital blocks appear

The HD-ILA's do not handle dark content well, it's a known problem. As far as intermittent digital blocks while viewing regular content it may be coming from your sat/cable company or you may have a problem with the digital board. I've had a few of these go bad.

Flickering - Toshiba 62HMX84

it could be as simple as the tv feeding back on itself in a dark room.
it is adjusting the light level because of what it sees ambient in the room.
turn on a light near the tv and see if it stays constant now.

Can i upgrade to hd on this tv

I am not finding anything on the net about being able to upgrade it but the HD in the model # stands for high def but the tv is old enough that it may not go up as high as 1080 most likely just 480i or p which can be achieved with an s-video or might be 720 with the R/B/G connector or a DVI connector, you can look for converting cables on ebay

Red-striped ghost images.

when you leave your TV (no matter what kind) and you leave it for long periods of time on a static image or something.. the image tends to burn in to the screen... so changing the glass would be a way to fix it.... the problem is that that kind of repairmen is more expensive and difficult than buying a new set...

Black Screen

Ok, this is probably what has happened, you say that you have played games on your tv, well the thing is with HD and Plasma Screen tv's is that when you play Hi-Res games on them the games backdrop will burn itself into the screen, causing the screen to turn dark and not reveal the correct picture it should. People need to learn about this!!!!! Playing games on HD and Plasma tv's will screw up your resolution!!!
