Question about Sharp Flat Panel Televisions
I bought a Sharp LC-52SB55U from BestBuy a little over 30 days ago and it worked fine up until two days ago. My programmable remote stopped working. I tried the remote that came with it and my comcast remote but that did doesn't work either. The buttons on the side of the TV work but nothing with a remote. I tried the recommended reset of the factory remote which didn't work either. Anyone have any ideas?

Well, there is a way to have the clearest possable picture. Get HD cable TV box that is HDMI compatable and watch only HD channels. Or buy a blu-ray player, hook it up via HDMI and only watch blu-ray disc in 1080p!

Check your owners manual look for the section that tells you how to adjust the televisions features using the on screen menu.You probably Have it set on auto adjust. You must turn this feature off, to use the manual controls. If this does not help go to the Sharp website and search the frequently asked questions and troubleshooting sections. Search for your problem and similar one that may have answers. If all this fails you, call technical service and ask them for help with your problem.Hope this helps you with your problem.

Do a quick google for this on the AVForums site where you'll find numerous threads covering this problem. First, select the HDMI input before turning on the blu ray player. The handshake over HDMI is the problem. I have the same problem with a Technika blu ray which is fine on my other TVs.
If this doesn't solve it then you ned a firmware update which can be downloaded from Sharp's website and installed using a USB pendrive or by PCMCIA card from Sharp if you have an older model with a rocker on off switch and no USB update port on the back of the TV.

Your HDTV would have to have internet connectivity, either an RJ-45 ethernet jack on the rear panel or wi-fi capability. Sharp calls it the AQUOS NET feature on the TV and is usually an ethernet port. If your TV does not have this capability, you can use a laptop and hook this up to your HDTV. You still need high-speed internet service and a Netflix account.

It can be that it detects shorted circuits so it goes into shutdown, or ity may have bad power supply due to bad caps, oe bad main board. it will require in-depth troubleshooting to narrow down the problem.
