    Is this something I can fix myself? Is it simple? Do I need to call a service technician?

Seems like the display panel went bad. You can check for sure by unplagging the unit for 45 seconds and plugging it back in. If still no display order a new display panel.
Please rate if you are satisfied

    No do it yourself. You basically. just unscrew the top cover and then from there you remove the old display and put in the new one. Make sure power is off also.Easy fix all you need is a phillips screw driver and a pair of pliers

I have a Sharp R-305KS stainless microwave. It is about 1 year old and until recently, I haven't had any problems with it. About two weeks ago the cancel button on the front panel started to work...

Sharp microwave 1200 watts keypad showing


Not a complete answer, but may help describe problem: Our R-510B should be the same except for color, and for several years it has intermittently messed up its display. The left side two segments on the units digit won't light up. So a digit 8, without the two vertical bars on the left, comes out as a letter E reversed left to right. Any digit that uses the two left segments (traditionally labelled segments E and F when talking about 7-segment displays) comes out wrong. Every thing else works fine. I can't tell if this is your problem.
This is almost surely a bad contact at the interface between the LCD display panel and the PC board: Typically there is a "squishy" conductive strip that connects them, and I expect grease has gotten in there. If so careful disassembly and cleaning with a mild solvent should fix it. Since we can live with it, and it usually fixes itself in a few weeks, I have not got around to taking it apart.

Sharp microwave stopped working


Is it totally dead? No display? Or just does not cook? If it made an unusual noise before it 'died' something probably shorted out.... You need an ohm meter to troubleshoot. If the fuse is open, switches and HV circuit need to be checked before replacing fuse. Sometimes on the convection Microwaves (not just Sharp) the fuse will 'rust' and open rather than blow. Or the fuse holder can over heat and fail.

Microwave Display


Have you tried unplugging the unit for several minutes and then plugging it back in?

The oven's microprocessor receives the input commands from the front panel switches and it also drives the digital display.

Since the switches work and the oven works, the microprocessor appears to be functioning fine. I would say you have a defective display or a power supply issue that powers the display.

Unfortunately, you'll need to take it to be serviced.

Please let me know if I can be of further service to you.

Good luck!
