Question about Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. LCD HDTV
My LC-42D62U Sharp Aquos turns off by itself when i watch certain DVD's. THe only DVDs it happened on so far was SAW III and Running Scared. It'll always be at the same exact part of the movie. When it turns off i have to unplug the TV from the outlet and plug it back in, otherwise the TV wont turn back on. I play the DVDs through the PS3 but i doubr that has anything to do with it. Why would the TV turn off at certain parts of the movie...and always the same part?
How many times per second does the POWER led blink? (dont worry about the OPC).
1x per second (constant, steady blink) = bad inverter/lamps
2x per second = bad power supply
3x per second = bad main board
There isnt really anything you can do to fix it yourself, you can order the part over EBay, not hard to install just unscrew/unplug --- plug/screw..

I have a new Sharp Aquos LC-46D64U and I got this problem watching Shrek where the TV would turn off at the same spot. The TV would turn itself on again within 5-10 seconds, and then would repeat this several times. I was playing the DVD in a sharp Blu-Ray DVD player. When I put the DVD in a regular DVD player, this didn't happen (using component cables), where the Blu-Ray used HDMI cables. At first I thought the TV was overheating and shutting itself down, but I played numerous other disk without problem and only the Shrek DVD had the problem and always the same spot.
Finally, I tried disabled the AquosLink in the Blu-Ray player, and that fixed it. Shrek played all the way through with no problem. My best guess is that the Blu-Ray DVD player sends some bogus AquosLink signal over the HDMI cable to the TV that causes the TV to shutdown.
I'd love a better explanation of why this fixed it from somebody who knows better :-)

Both sound wrong... I watch DVDs through a PlayStation 3 and leave the television on for long periods of time without any problems. While I watched a *large* number of DVDs I haven't watched either of those two films...
The only things I can think of are: a) the PS3 is sending signals at too high a voltage due to an internal fault. Unlikely. b) the PS3 is doing something that doesn't meed the HDMI cable spec and is causing the Aquos to go wrong. Possible. c) there's a fault with your television.
If you've got a spare cable it might be worth testing that... don't suppose you've got a spare PS3 to test though :)
I'd contact Sharp as it sounds like a fault.
