Lcd screen does not stay on.
Not really a solution, but a workaround. You can enter public mode menu and disable power off by power button. Hold the remote in one hand (you'll need it later), and with the other hand maintain "volume " and "input" buttons on the TV, and press the power button. Maintain the power button depressed otherwise the TV will power off. You can release the other buttons. The TV should display a "Public mode" dialog box where you can input a 3-digit password. Enter "027" with the remote. The TV should display the public mode menu. It is operated with the cursor arrows of the remote. Highlight the "power on fixed" item. Change it to "fixed". Then highlight "execute" and press OK on the remote. You should now be able to release the power button without turning off the TV.
In Sharp's own words :
In "Fixed" setting, the power-off by the power key of the unit is invalidated and the image is kept being received. The power can be turned off by stopping the power supply from AC.
Note that you won't be able to turn the TV off with the remote either.
Also, if you wish to enter public mode menu again, you will have to disconnect and reconnect the power cord on the back of the TV while maintaining "volume " and "input" buttons depressed, because the power button is no longer operating.
