    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!

    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

These instructions don't work. I just did it 5 times and every time I turn the TV back on it never goes through the setup options and I can't even use the remote besides adjusting the volume.

No sound


if you have external speakers for your pc make sure they work first. next take the audio cable that came with the monitor , and plug the blue end of audio jack into the back of monitor. the other end is green , that plugs into your audio out of your computer which is green. if it still does not work , you need to check to make sure your volume is set correctly in windows , linux or mac os. win xp go to start button , control panel , sounds speech and audio devices. next adjust the system volume , make sure device volume is all the way set and that mute box is not checked. if you have other operating system the same method applies , just different process of getting there.

Volume level display


it sounds like your laptop drivers aren't working properly.. possibly the program dealing with your sound volume is corrupted or missing.

I'd try reinstalling your keyboard/touchpad drivers. what is the make and model # of your laptop?

Picture too large for screen


If the television is connected to a cable box such as Time Warner's HD box, the picture mode can be changed by pressing the '#' on the cable box's remote keypad (where the channel numbers are). This cycles the picture between zoom, normal, and stretch which could be cause of your problem.
