    Similar problem with volume and green K on Sharp Aquos 32"

  • MAMMMM Jan 06, 2008

    I tried that last fix and it DOES NOT WORK. Hitting Volume and Channel - at the same time did nothing. Any other suggestions??

  • rockface Jan 07, 2008

    The solution is almost correct. You need to unplug your set, and then hold in Input and Volume down at same time, and then plus in set. Yes, I know, you need 3 arms to do this. When the tv comes on the k should now be blue. Like the other solution says on the remote press down arrow and you'll see up industry init. illuminated. Press the channel down and volume down at the same time, release and hit enter. The screen should turn lime green. After that unplug the tv and replug it.



    Unless it's after hours or the weekend I highly suggest you call Sharp and have them walk you through this, because if you do it yourself and mess it up, you void the warranty.

    Lost all volume control.  I disconnected the power and then reconnected it a dozen times.  The volume finally started working.  I turned the tv off and now I have no volume control.  I have everything disconnected from the tv and still have no volume.

OK guys I'll save you. The tv is in hotel mode. To get it out from there you have to go in service menu but DO NOT CHANGE ANY OTHER THING IN THERE, only what i tell you. With the tv on and the K letter on the screen press in the same time vol- and ch- on the tv set. Now you'll be in service mode. On the remote press down arrow (not -channel) and you'll see up industry init. go there with ch- and press vol+ and enter. let the tv like that for few seconds and the tv will go green and hopefully industry init succsesfull will be on the screen. After that unplug the tv and replug it. Done!

  • isaac johnson Dec 13, 2012

    What if you an complete all the steps successfully, but it's right back to hotel mode after? The remote won't allow you to access standard menus, and you aren't able to change the view mode?

Thanks Draude. The solution worked for me....but the screen did not turn green like you said. After that I was in the Industry Init, I changed it to EURO[AUTO], pressed enter & **OK** came up on the screen. Turned off the tv from the remote and it did reset.....I had to setup the language and the country of usage and the LCD works fine now.
However thanks alot for your help

hi it sounds like you have a software problem could be the epprom chip on the main board this is the memory chip, you could try the service mode and do a factory reset see if this cures the problem .
here is how you get into service mode Press "Menu," and then press "2," "4," "8," "9." do not adjust anything else just select reset , you will have to retune the tv in again hope it helps

I have a 42 inch lcd tv. The tv will come on but the screen is blue Cant change channel or adjust volume. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.


try to unplug it and a cable or sat box if used from power for a while to see if a reboot will help---also the fact you cannot change channel etc means the set experienced some kind of glitch.

THe problem is in the set top box. Or common called the tuner box. IT looses the 5 volts to the main display and thus the monitor will go into a shut down state. THESE boxes are factory repair only and must be sent off to repair.

Screen is all Green


New cable box recently? If not, your cable provider has probably pushed a firmware update to your cable box. Green screens are very common with HDMI connection. From your symptom, I am going to take a guess that you are connected via HDMI. If so, switch to Component cables and your problem is solved. It's not the TVs fault... cable boxes seem to be the single largest problem child for HDMI compatibility. I hope this was of some assistance.
