Question about Sharp 32F640 32" TV

1 Answer

Got wet My 3 yr old son was caught spraying windex in the livingroom, the tv was on but I thought nothing of it, about 30 min later, the tv started changing channels on its on. It would go up several channels then stop on one for a min and so on and so on. The remote control would not turn the tv off and neither would the off switch on the set.So I am assuming that my son sprayed the tv (which my son said he did spray the tv)but he pointed to the speaker holes and the input holes and said that was where he sprayed) My husband said to turn off the power switch and I did. That did turn off the tv, however when I turned the power switch back on and turned the on button on the tv, nothing happens? Will the tv dry out and if so what do we need to do for this to work, or has the tv had it? Thank you very much.

Re: got wet

Most likely he sprayed the screen, and the fluid dripped down onto the board where the pushbuttons are. The pushbuttons them became contaminated and shorted out inside. Usually, the damage done will not be reversed by drying the set out. He should not feel bad, though, because we see adults doing that all the time. The TV has not "had it", since it is quite easy to correct. The board should be cleaned and any defective pushbuttons replaced by a qualified tech.

I have a 10 yr old Sony tv that is blurry

No, most likely scenario is that the cable company compressed the signal further so they can stuff more channels on the wire. The cable guy is caught in the middle of this. The poor guys will tell you anything to get you to turn your head, then they slip out the door. He can''t do anything and the company is looking at the big dollar. I don't think you will have much luck pushing back to them. I hope this helps.

My tv will only display ch. 2 my little 5 yr. old was playing with the settings it is a 15 yr. old zenith tv

Depending on your market, it sounds like all of the other analogue channels have been terminated (not your son's fault) in order to provide stronger HD signals. You may need to run to wallmart and get that $50 decoder box.

I have a 36" TV that won't work - Red LED light blinks 5 times

The 5 blinks indicates a White Balance Failure. This involves checking voltages and components tied directly to the CRT. I would not suggest any attempt for self repair. The cost for this repair should not be significant. Figure a parts cost in the $30-$50 range at worst.

Power button Flashes

For the first one, please list the model number and count the blinks. Also, can you please post each problem separately. It will get too confusing trying to address 3 sets with different but similar problems.

No Picture, No Sound

It could have been a coincidence or maybe excess windex fell down in the push buttons assembly thru the botton edge of the frame creating a short and blowing a fuse ,if you are familiar with tv service checking the fuses will be a good place to start,if you find one and is black it means you have shorted component ahead,If you are not too familiar with tv service be safe and call for assistance from a servicer.Let Us know how it goes or if you need more information.
