Hello, I am a Computer Geek Squad agent and I am working on a Sharp LC-13AV1U Tv for a friend and when you turn the unit on it stays on for about 15-30 seconds and then it will turn off, the only led is a red led that stays on during its running, no other blinking or fault code indication, i have the tv apart and i see 2 boards the power supply board and the logic board, please if anyone can give me any help that would be appreciated. Thanks Again, Devin Gleason-Lambert

Best Buy will sent out their hot shot Geek squad to pick it up
for an extra $70 charge which isnt covered in their stupid
service plan. I live about 20 minutes away.
It still under BBs service plan until March 2014 which I
paid around $40 extra for. No we don't fix anything in
the home, they answered. The geek squad will then
return it here whenever they get it fixed.
I will probably take it in myself to save on the high charges.
The best way to set up a TV such as yours without a calibration device is to get a high definition picture of someone's face on the screen and adjust the color, brightness and contrast until the face looks as life like as possible.
I m also suffering from same problem on aspire 4310. When the problem occurs, I remove the battery for an minute and insert again.... This trick have solved my problem. Try the same trick on your laptop and see that whether it works or not... Otherwise get it serviced....
Your PS3 set itself above the max resolution your LC-C3237U. Most likely the PS3 is doing 1080P, but the highest the Sharp can do is 1080i. So do this:
1. Connect PS3 to TV (you can use the current cable or analog cable)
2. Turn on TV and set input to port PS3 is on. 3. Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable. 4. Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.
I'm going to guess your friend's model is LC-37D64U. ( 37" screen; D64 series)
It's sounding like a power supply problem for the LCD screen. It's somewhat common problem for big LCD screens. But, too early for your friend to be having this problem with the TV.
I would have your friend use the warranty at this point. Last thing you want to do is void the warranty by opening up the TV.
I would first try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 mins so it can reset. Then, try turning it ON again.
If that doesn't work, it warranty time.
If your friend just bought it, have them exchange the TV for another one. I wouldn't want a TV that has problems that just came out of the box. The Sharp TV only has a 1 year warranty. Upgrade warranty life if possible. A repair for a problem like this would cost about $100 for someone to look at it; and $200 to $400 for the part at a TV repair shop.
First thing to do is stop booting up the computer. This message means the Hard Disk Drive (HDD or "C Drive") has errors. Errors can mean disk corruption including bad sectors and/or physically damaged hardware inside the disk drive. Since you are able to log into the computer, if even briefly, perhaps the HDD is what I like to call "fail-ING"; there may be hope of retrieving some of your data (pictures, etc). Ask your local Geek Squad Agent help you - if damage is severe, this is not necessarily something you can fix yourself (e.g. "fail-ED" HDD). Remember, I said not to keep booting the computer - the more times you boot a "fail-ING" drive the less likely you will retrieve anything. If you insist, however, on a DIY method - you could learn more about the following: 1. New HDD installed 2. HDD Enclosure (USB) 3. Acronis Software 4. A nice drink and a couple of hours to clone the old HDD
OR 1. Geek Squad Agent 2. Credit Card/Checkbook
HINT: if you talk to a Geek Squad Agent and s/he can't explain Acronis software, find an Agent who can...
