Your third option is to repair the scratches ! If you search you can find products sold to do just that.
One example is http://www.janvil.com/plastic_polish.htm?gclid=CO_f08iL75gCFQ0gQgodpEm00g
What ever product you try, you should try it on a small inconspicuous place first to see if it works. The idea is to get the scratches to be invisible with the tv on so test it that way. Search for more products - this was only one I found. I am not affiliated with that company.

Honestly brother, there is not anything you can do about this. You have one of two options, #1 buy a new tv, or #2 deal with the scratches. If you call sharp, they will send you right out the door because their warranties do not cover physical damages in any way, shape, form, or fashion. Avoid yourself the embararssment and take one of those options. Take it from a person who knows. good luck 2 u

Sharp AQUOS won't turn on, how do i fix it? You can tell the TV power is on but the picture is a black backlit screen, none of the menu options work. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!


Fault to its main board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ . In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

A vitamin bottle was thrown at the tv and now its discolored on the corner. it's 2 years old. can this tv be fixed? it's 52 inch tv


Sounds like the screen was broken from the impact.
They can be replaced but are very expensive. Between labor and the cost of the screen it may not pay to replace it

My flat screen hd sharp aquos color turns green when we are watching it. it is only 3 three years old. what can this be? thanks


I'm not sure if this is the same, but people were green no matter how i adjusted the tint, and lacked overall color. I doubled checked the component cables, taking each one out, and putting it back firmly,
Picture is back to normal. Easy fix.

My 32-inch lcd tv from sharp has no picture but audio works fine. No picture ever comes up, not even the "please wait" message. Whats going on?


My 3 year old Sharp LC-40C32U would start up fine but within a minute would go dark (audio continued fine). For a while I could turn the set off and on again and it would be fine, but over time this became less effective. My solution, which has worked for a week now, was to a) unplug the set's power cord; b) after 3 minutes plug it back in and turn the set on; c) on the remote hit MENU and slide over to SETUP (3 clicks to the right if the screen is dark) and one up to RESET; d) hit ENTER and follow the prompts. This puts the set in it's factory configuration so you will have to rescan for channels. Worked for me.

Sharp Aquos 32" screen size too big!


Check your cable remote. You might have it set to HD zoom. This happened to us when our little girl got a hold of the cable remote.
