Question about Sharp Aquos LC-32D40U Television
I am sorry to hear you are having this type of trouble. It is nothing you are doing wrong.
From what you have typed....you most likely have a poor solder connection or an essential chip needs resetting.
First try a hard rest by unplugging the unit for a minimum of 6 hours, then plug it back in and try again...quite often this removes the "quirks" these LCD's have.
If this doesn't work, then by the way you have described it getting worse it may very well be a poor solder connection...
Over time the solder connections can develop a hairline fracture . This is what I believe is happening to your TV somewhere in the power supply or video board if the reset fails to remedy your problem.
When this continues to happen it can create a small arc and surge voltage into surrounding components and actually damage them so it is best to have the problem resolved before components are damaged such as a capacitor or other essential component in your television.
This would be then be a component or board failure which must be addressed by a professional technician.
Unfortunately your warranty is only good for one year so the a repair cost would not be covered by Sharp if older than 1 year.
The board diagnosis and repair of a problem like this usually runs between about $200-$350 depending on your location, extent of damage, and will be on the higher end if you call for in home service.
TV repairs should only be attempted by trained individuals - as there are potentially lethal amounts of electricity stored inside which needs proper discharge before repair work can begin.
I HIGHLY reccomend letting a professional diagnose your set.
Unfortunately, there is no simple end-user fix.
Thanks for using FixYa!!
