There are a number of things that could be wrong.
The basic first thing to try is to replace the cable(s) that feeds your TV signal; sometimes the connection with the connectors on the end goes bad.
HDMI or what ever feeds your signal. You can make your own RCA or traditional F type coax connector with the connectors from this site or you can buy what you need for composite or RCA at your local store. This could be the problem if the signal has just stopped coming over. hopefully that is the problem.

Next is the bulb in the bulb should be checked. In an LCD it can just happen. the light dies. if you are getting no sound and no image the bulb is likely not the problem.

You may have a short or bad resistor or transistor. the board that controls your TV might not be getting proper power, be it too much or too little. If you suspect this is the case leave the TV off, that pop could be a power surge flowing over the components of the TV. and could do further damage.

Depending on the value of the TV you should consider recycling. Replacing a TV under 300 or 250 is worth it. a warranty is included. an involved repair could run 300-400 dollars or more, but on a big screen TV that costs over 2,000 a repair is a good value.

-good luck-

My Sharp tv remote will not turn on / off tv. It will turn on by the main power switch on tv but not by remote.

From page 8 of the manual:

The POWER indicator on the AQUOS television should light GREEN indicating you have power to the AQUOS television.

If the POWER indicator on the AQUOS television still does not light up, press TV POWER on the remote control to turn the power on.

Tv does not start up at all but there is an audible beep when you press the manual on/off button

my advise is to disconnect the sky box and any other ancillares. and see if the tv works as a normal tv only. if not the tv has a fault.if it now works connect your other ancillaries ie skybox one at a time if the tv gives up then just backtrack what you have just done it may just be a faulty cable

Have a vertical green line on my sharp led aquos, it is only 4 months old. how do i get rid of the line

I'm assuming you have a high definition cable box connected to this television with an hdmi cable a motorola perhaps. If that is correct then with you motorola cable box power turned off press the menu button on it. Yes I just stated that you turn off your motorola cable box and then press the menu button on it. A hidden menu will pop up on your television screen. Yes the television should be turned on but the motorola box should be turned off when you press the menu button. I am sorry for reiterating that so many times but there have been numerous persons that have been more concerned about why this works in this way than just getting it to solve their problem. So you navigate down to the color space setting. You will be able to navigate left or right to choose a different setting under color space. You will see maybe RGB of YCbCr 4:4:4. Choose the one that your cable box is NOT set to currently and the green line should go away.

A "Critique show" text message keeps popping up

This is definitely not a Sharp Aquos feature. Any show related functions come from Dish Network. It might be a channel specific function which the Dish Network support staff does not know how to deal with.

Sharp Aquos LC C3242U - Intermittant Sound Switching from Mono to Stereo

Not sure if I just got lucky or if the problem is solved..I hooked up my Sharp Aquos LC-32D64U the other night and I had the blue audio box pop up. Mine was only in Mono and would not switch to Stereo...Well, Local cable company is of of Hi-Def boxes but I thought what if my Digital box is bad/old or has some sort of problem. I went down to comcast cable company switched to a different digitial box..came home, hooked it up and so far no blue audio box, plus now it shows that it's in stereo..good luck
