Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My sharp acquos LCD HDTV goes between being normal and super fuzzy with colors almost seeming to blur the screen. It's about 7 years old and I'm guessing some piece is dying. Is this fixable or is it new TV time?

Its display panel should be checked. Visit the site linked here. It has screen shots to faulty LCD displays. See them and make it sure. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Pull up previous posts there, either by its left side bar, or view it in Timeslide option.

SOURCE: Cracked LCD Screen on Sharp Aquos LC37D43U 37-Inch 720p LCD HDTV

Most LCD's just went down in price by around 2-400 dollars. I would suggest buying a new one. The cracked screen might mean that the liquid will ooze out and get worse and worse as it ages. However, it may only have a crack and not get any worse than it is now. If you can live with it and it doesn't get worse, you can view it that way for another 10 years and be fine.

The fact that the LCDs are cheaper now and you only have a 37 inch, you might consider getting a larger one that you have had your eye on for a long time. (Note: even though I am a firm believer in LCD's over Plasma, plasmas are a few hundered dollars cheaper and if you know your children are prone to breaking things... it might be the way to go.)

Replacing the screen is possible, but more costly than the new T.V.

SOURCE: Sharp aquos lcd screen goes blank

i was having these same problems with the screen going black, and i found that when i hit the back of my tv it would work sometimes. so, i improvised on some of the advice on this page and so far no problems. here is what i did (its very easy):

1. lay the tv on the floor and take off the back panel. (i think 12 screws)

2. on the right side of the tv (as you are looking at the back) you will notice a large metal covering that is held in place by 6 screws. unscrew these and remove the metal cover.

3. you will notice that the three screw holes on the left side of the board have some sort of metal or solder around them, in sort of a star pattern. when i looked closely i noticed that most of the metal (solder) was tarnished, or kind of blackened. (this must mean that the ground screws werent getting a good connection and this would explain why it would work sometimes when i hit it because it would vibrate the screws enough to get a good connection! )

so, take a pencil eraser and erase all the black or tarnish off the metal surrounding the screw holes. thats it! (to be safe i took some sandpaper and cleaned up the screw holes on the back of the metal covering, but i dont know if that was necessary)

at this point i followed another gentleman's advice to do a hard reset. this involved unplugging the 8 connections although i dont know if this was really necessary because i believe my problem was a ground issue. i did it just to be safe. his advice is on this site if you want to do this step.

4. i put everything back together and it worked! i performed a soft reset at this point which puts your tv back to factory settings. just go to menu>setup>reset>return to factory settings? yes
this will turn your tv off and back on. that's it. so far so good for me.

I have seen similar effects like this & it is usually due to a flaw in the screen. A replacement screen is the only cure.

SOURCE: 3 year old Samsung 40 inch LCD TV will not turn on

The problem is 4 capacitors on the power supply board. Just had mine done under warranty. They (Sears) replaced the whole power board but you can get larger capacitors and just replace those for alot cheaper if not under warranty.

The way the symptom was explained, the problem is with the LCD panel itself. Lines on screen are cause by some factors such as tft's or the control flexible contact that attached to the panel might become loose overtime, the flexible can be repaired but not at service station level. You will need to visit authorized sharp service station to have a look and get concrete diagnosis. they can decide whether the lines are repairable or not.

You have likely shattered the LCD screen rendering it useless. Unlikely you can replace the screen for less than a new unit will cost.

Image goes to black on Sharp flatscreen.


An LCD unit? Sounds like the backlight is failing. When it goes black next time, use a strong light next to the screen and look for a faint image on the screen....

If it is the backlight, its a service shop issue.

Blurred picture, after some warm-up it back to clear picture


If the problem doesn't return after the picture becomes normal, then it could just be due to the electron gun taking longer to fire up. I don't know how old your TV is, but TVs older than ten years typically take longer to warm up than more modern sets.
