Sharp aquos lc-32

One year old television cuts out picture immediately after start-up and continues in sound only. About ten re-starts are required before set will provide a steady picture. Will usually be O.K when warm. Aerial leads have been checked

    I have now resolved my lost picture problem thanks to 'guest'.

    Sharp informed me that the 'International Warranty' expired after six months,so I had nothing to lose by taking off the back and cleaning. Problem solved.

    I would advise anybody who does not wish to use the Sharp Corporation monopoly on repairs to D.I.Y whenever possible.I was a little apprehensive about removing the back but the layout is relatively straightforward compared to the old valve t.v. which was the last type I tinkered with!!

    I have Directtv satellite for my 32inch Sharp but every so often it has only volume and a black screen when connected to the receiver. The installer replaced the original dvr receiver thinking that was defective but it continues to happen every few days. He thinks it is the video card on the Sharp. Does anyone know what can be done to permanently cure the problem.

This fault has been fixed on my TV by the Sharp Engineer. Inside the cover on the right as you look at the back is the PCB that controls the back lights, the screws holdong this assembly can come lose. The engineer removed the PCB and the metal cover over it, cleaned the pads on the board and where the PCB touches the metal cover  and the TV chassis before putting it all back together making sure the screws were properly tight this time. He also at this time uppdated the firmware / software which apparently fixes a few other bugs like the pictuer going blank if you quickly cycle through the channels.

more information needed - is this while playing from a DVD or blray player, OTA signal, or satellite/cable box? have you checked to make sure everything is properly connected? there is also a chance that something has gone bad with the internals - try calling SHARP customer service, 800-237-4277

My 32-inch lcd tv from sharp has no picture but audio works fine. No picture ever comes up, not even the "please wait" message. Whats going on?

My 3 year old Sharp LC-40C32U would start up fine but within a minute would go dark (audio continued fine). For a while I could turn the set off and on again and it would be fine, but over time this became less effective. My solution, which has worked for a week now, was to a) unplug the set's power cord; b) after 3 minutes plug it back in and turn the set on; c) on the remote hit MENU and slide over to SETUP (3 clicks to the right if the screen is dark) and one up to RESET; d) hit ENTER and follow the prompts. This puts the set in it's factory configuration so you will have to rescan for channels. Worked for me.

Sharp Aquos LC-32D41U pictures problem

I have had exactly the same problem. Sounds daft but by not using the remote, and only using the power on/off switch on the TV itself, it is working idea why
Use the remore for changing programmes etc but not for on/off
Try it anyway because I know how annoying this is

Sharp aquos fault

Thanks to this forum, I was able to confidently contact Sharp and get my TV fixed.

My 32" LCD had the same problem (sound but no picture) and was out of warranty, however I phoned Sharp UK and suggested that it was a manufacturing defect rather than component failure and should be repaired free of charge - which they did!!
