Shadowy lines across screen - LCD TV (Sharp Aquos LC-42XD1e)

I have a Sharp Aquos LC-42XD1E and have had it trouble free for about a year or so I would guess. Recently I noticed that there are some horizontal lines in the top left, spaced about an inch or so apart that last for about 4-5". Its just a shadow.... not ghosting of an image, just the same shadowy lines every time its used and always in the same place. Its most pronounced on a soft light colour like light blue or grey. When its a white screen its almost gone and when black its gone. At its worst (only seen this once or twice) then you can notice that the lines are actually part of a 'mesh' like pattern of say 1" cubes across the screen, so I am assuming its part of the telly's construction or something. Please tell me there is a fix for this? Proving to be realy frustrating as you find that instead of watching the program, your eyes keep focusing on the lines and back again...!! This is made even worse as my wife cant seem to see them!!

Try and exchange this for the newer model since I think here was a recall.

SOURCE: Sharp Aquos Won't Power On

I have the same problem with my My LC-42D62U WHen i watch certain DVDs, (so far it happened on SAW III and RUNNING SCARED) during certain parts of those movies my TV will turn off and i cant turn it back on unless i unplug it and plug it back in. It only turns off on specific parts in the movie, i have no idea why...like the same exact parts...so i pretty much have to pause the movie with my remote once my TV turns off then when i power the TV on again just resume the movie and its fine...but if i rewind to that part again it'll power off again SAW III only had one part like that....but RUNNING SCARED had about 3-4

To adjust screen size, choose the View Mode feature on the top right of the remote control. Zoom size is full screen for watching DVD movies, but sometimes there is still a thin black band due to the formatting of the dvd (unless you buy full screen versions) S. Stretch view mode is best for TV Movies.(usually fills whole screen) Occasionally there are TV movies which just don't respond to being stretched to fill the screen, it's just the way the signal is coming through . 1080i/p detects the resolution of the signal and displays the same number of pixels on the screen, but a 720p signal input will be viewed in full screen.

Sharp Aquos 32 wont turn on


I called up Sharp, and if you are a part of Sharp AQUOS Advantage Program you get free in home service.

They were very nice about it, and I already have a technician coming to my house on Saturday and I called on Wednesday.

I doubt Sharp's policy alot less now!

Sharp Aquos LC-42D43U LCD TV


Well, the good thing you got a new TV out of it.
The best and easiest thing to do is sell it on your local Craigslist.
The parts inside the TV can be used to repair other TVs that have no damage to the screens. I would say $100 for the whole thing would be fair price for all the parts inside.
If nobody wants to buy it on Craigslist, go to Shopjimmy.com and contact them if they want to buy the TV from you. They're all about recycling parts.

LCD screen


most of the time when you see this it is your lcd panel that bad but it could be inverter. cost converter is around 395 on up and if it is lcd panel not worth fixing. I would call local tv shop ask them how much they charge for estimate . or ask them price on inverter or lcd panel replacement.

Screen Goes Blank for about 5 seconds


A friend and I both have the LC-32D64U Aquos sets with the same problem. Black screen for a few seconds with no video or sound. They came with firmware version S0804171.

Installing (reverting?) to firmware S0801101 on Sharp's website resolved these issues. Perhaps you need to update/switch firmware versions, especially if hardware replacement did not resolve the issue.
