Remote needs to be too close to TV

I bought my sharp LC-32SB23U on December 14 at Walmart in Bradford, PA. Generally, I am quite pleased with the new TV. The only problem that I have with it is that the remote has to be held within 12 inches of the TV to work. What good is that?!

I have tried new batteries and cleaning the contacts, but nothing helps.

HELP!

Your remote is defective in that it does not send a strong enough signal to the tv. It is possible that the receiving portion of the tv could be defective but I have not run into that case on tvs that are so new. Since it is so relatively new I would ask for a new one and try it in the store. In either case you need to do this before the warranty is out on your new purchase.

On my sharp tu tv322h my epg is blank ive tried retuning but its still blank can you help?


This worked for me.....(from the Top Up TV website)
Purge VOD.
Press the menu button
Scroll down to Option 4 and press OK
Scroll down to Option 6 and press OK
In the help menu press 1397 on the remote control quickly and in sequence
Scroll down to the 'Purge VOD Schedule' option (next page) and press OK
Remember the DTR must be either on or left in standby at all times to receive the EPG and programme downloads. • The guide will update at the next scheduled slot (between 11am and 12pm daily).

Updates are also quicker if you change from 14 day EPG to the 8 day version...

Hi I_yngbld,my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network and I was going over your post and seenwhere you're remote is having a hard time reading the IR sensor. Please makesure there is nothing like a computer tower close by or anything that couldcause interference, once the receiver is clear of any interference try theremote again. If the issue still persists please e-mail me at michael.houston@dishnetwork.com.

29" LG Flatron TV bought in 2007. On starting TV,


That kind of prolem is commonly caused by dried electrolytic capacitor on the low voltage power supply. Leaky capacitor affect the performance of the B+ once sense by the processor it will automatically shuts down the unit.
I've advice you to send it to qualified service center to isolate the problem because oscillator is also going to check for normal operation. This is quite technical and not DIY.

Thanks for using fixya.

Please rate my help.

I have a Insignia tv and a remotewith uei tecnnology how do I get


As you suggested I went to Walmart and bought another remote which listed Insignia as one of their manuf. I set it up and although it was not the total answer I wanted it does work. I think when a person buys a new tv they should pay a little more money and not but a stores own brand. With the stores own brand there is no manuf. to support you. I don`t know who Insignia is and neither does the store. Anyway I will live with what I have and thank you for your assistance.

Sharp TV LC154U


LC154U ?? Do you mean LC-15AV4U or LC-15SH4U ?

Either way.... if it is the back light(s) the actual lights that light up the display... you will not get these... you will need to replaced the whole LCD panel. The inverter.. on that model, I believe it is built on to the main board... and the main board would have to be fixed or replaced.

Even knowing that your tv is an older model, you can still send it to SHARP to get an estimate on repair (1-800-BESHARP). You will have to pay for shipping it to SHARP, and they will want you to pay a $50 Evaluation Fee & $30 to cover shipping unit back to you. If you choose not to repair it.. it will be shipped back to you un-repaired. if you choose to fix it... then the $50 will go towards the repair bill.
