Question about Sharp Aquos LC-32G4U 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Picture quality My DTV/Tivo broadcast programs have gotten much darker and more difficult to watch over the past couple of months. I can't find any control on either my Aquos remote or my DirecTV remote which allows me to control brightness. (Aquos says it has an automatic brightness control built-in to the LCD). My LCD is 2 1/2 years old. I have a 3 year extended warranty. Do you think this is a backlighting tube problem or what? Thanks, Tom

Re: picture quality

I think you are right about the backlight. You need to replace the backlight tube or, if you can, replace the TV. Good Luck.

How do I reinstall the channels for complete digital TV in my area?

You can redo auto scan for channels anytime.
The US DTV technology is still changing. The software autoupdate for your DTV tuner and memory can be done anytime by broadcast station signal. So, from day to day your tuner may improve in sensitivity to reach farther DTV stations. And the picture quality can also change by new decoders downloaded into the DTV converter.

Picture keeps getting darker

I would need more information as to how fast the picture is getting darker. If it is happens over a matter of hours as you watch it the tv may have a lamp driver issue and requires service. If it has been getting darker over a period of months, you may need a new lamp.

I had the same problem before. I had my wireless router really close to the tv. I relocated the router, and the problem never came back.

Non-HDMI Tivo connection

The solution I use is S-Video from cable box to TIVO, and from TIVO to TV. That gets you the highest quality signal that the TIVO can handle. To watch true HD signal, switch TV from S-Video input to Hi-Def input and tune to HD channel. I have an HD cable box connected to both outputs, your situation may be different.

Feel free to ask for more help.
