Re: lc-37d6u intermittant audio issue

I'll tell you but it's not easy to do it. The heat sink radiator for the audio amplifier IC is touching the circuit board. You have to remove it and to replace the sillicon. The radiator is situated on the back of the AV board. You got to remove all boards to get this one.
Good luck.

Our sharp LC-37D6U does not turn on. The opc/dl light keeps flashing green X3 then every second or so. and the blue power button flashes also. What might we have to do to solve the problem? thank you

The main tv Tuner signal board it is dead or it have problems,but tv still usable.Tries push the remote power switch off/on again everytimes OPC/Power LEDS lights flashes.Have to do this maybe 3 or 4 times for the tv to have a lite up LCD screen panel backlight to make the tv Tuner signal board to work again,for the tv to work.If still have same problems after 3 or 4 times power switch pushes off/on still have OPC/Power LEDS lights flashes.Mean the main tv Tuner signal board it is dead and can not be trying to save it.Tries websites like, to buy a whole new refurbish tv Tuner signal board for the replacement.This solution 100% will work,if ur tv main Tuner signal board still have life left in it.I do this every few days out of a week for my 46" Sharp Aquo LCD tv set,tv it work all the times.

Sharp LC-37d6u audio problem

Have you tried the reset buttons on the back of the TV?
It should be right below your Cable IN port.

If that doesn't work, you may have to take it into a repair shop for the main unit board to be replaced. The part # is KD352
It's $99.59 at
So, don't let the repairman rip you off.

No sound on Sharp Aquos 37' LC-37D4U

Almost all intermittent audio or audio failure problems with Sharp Aquos LC**D4U, LC**D5U, LC**D6U, and LC**D7U televisions are the result of a relatively simple design flaw involving the heatsink pad compound used on the Tripath TA-2024 amplifier chip (IC2502) found on the A/V board. This compound has a fairly low melting point and, over time, tends to seep out from between both top and bottom heatsinks onto the legs of this chip as well as onto circuitry immediately surrounding it. Further, over time the seeping compound also becomes somewhat conductive creating bridges which short the audio amplifier circuit causing everything from intermittent audio to complete audio failure.

Fortunately, in almost every case audio can be completely restored by cleaning the old compound from both top/bottom heatsinks and from both sides of the PC board in the area immediately surrounding the chip (I used rubbing alcohol which worked quite well). Sharp has issued a service bulletin addressing this issue (LCDTV-194) wherein a ‘2502 Heat Kit’ is specified. This kit is Sharp Part Number: PSPKIT663WJZZ and is available from for $19.95. However, it’s entirely possible to get by with the heat pad only, Sharp Part Number: PSPAZA663WJKZ for only $9.95. Please note that board replacement for this problem is almost never necessary, so if you’re working with a repair technician be sure and insist that he/she be certain to try cleaning the old board and replacing the aforementioned heatsink pads before charging you for a new board.

If one is reasonably familiar with electronics disassembly/reassembly and is willing to take their time, this can even be a DIY project. It is possible to find ‘important service references’ by simply entering LC26D4U (the 5, 6, and 7 series are very similar, and this information covers all screen sizes) into the search field at This will greatly aid in disassembly/reassembly of the TV, as the A/V board is somewhat ‘buried’ under other boards. Please refer to post # 373 at for pics of the information detailed here.

Particular thanks are owed ‘Aureius’ of the AVS forums for his research efforts concerning this issue !

Sharp aquos 46 picture disappears intermittently

it might mean there is an intermittent connection or cold solder joint somewhere inside the set.
But I wouldn't just settle on that.
Here are some other things to check:
1) Replace the batteries on your remote control.
2) Try resetting the logic functions on your tv by unplugging it for a minute, then plugging it back in.
3) Try covering up the infra-red receptor on the front of your TV to see if you're getting unwanted signals from the receptor. taping a piece of foil over that area is perfect. If it doesn't stop after doing these two things you'll probably need to take it to a shop.
4) If this does stop it, then look for unexpected signal sources. Have you added a remote control extender? Added a new device to your audio-video system? Changed to a new remote?
Here is what I suggest:

ONE: Give it a hard reset. Possibly the software codes in the power management are corrupted. Just unplug the tv line cord for 4 hours. That will reset everything internally to factory defaults.

TWO: Give it the old whacking test. Just bang on the cabinet in many places with your hand or fist. That will restart any cold solder joints or loose connections.

THREE: If the above procedure does not help, then you will have to call in an expert tv tech; OR just live with it and put in a line cord switch so that when it is OFF, it is really OFF.

Sharp LC 37 D6U

When you turn the tv on, do you hear a faint “pop” noise from the speaker? If so, the problem is with the heat sink under the audio IC. Over time, the heat sink will lose its consistency and start to melt, thus shorting out the audio circuit. To fix, you’d need to clean off the melted residue on both sides of the audio IC as well as replacing the heat sink with a newly redesigned Sharp Heat Insulation Pad. It’s a pretty complicated fix, I suggest calling your local authorized sharp service center to fix this problem. The part is inexpensive, so you’re most likely looking at a labor charge (maybe around $200ish) for the repair if they are not marking up the price too much.
