SHARP 29" TV switching off to Standby

Hi. I have a SHARP TV about 8 yrs old that switches off to Standby mode after using for about 20-25mins each time. Then it could not turn ON and stayed at Standby mode (even using remote or just push OFF then ON button - still back to standby mode). After about 15-20mins later I could switch on again by either using remote or push button. I checked all timer functions and there are no timer or lock that activated at all. Everything was as before. It just has this trouble of switching off and stay at standby mode after 20-25minutes of usage. Is this something that can be solved easily? What are the likely faults? Please advise.

Re: SHARP 29" TV switching off to Standby

Have you tried changing the batteries just to elimate this problem

change them

sometimes if the batteries are low in electronic devies, they send a wek signal to its receiver (your tv),

your tv gets confused and then switches itself to standby

if you have changed the batteries and this problem still persists

it can only then be th PSU or power supply unit, take it to your local tv repair shop of mastercare somewhere like that, its going to be cheaper to get it repaired than replacing the whole tv

PSU'S generally 20 to 50 pounds depending on model

don't deo it yourself though unless you've got a capacitor discharger (or a nice 25KV will be on its way to your body)

hop this helps mate, let me know how you get on

I can't turn my TV, have to power 15 or times for it to come one and it is also cutting out the sound intermittently for 2-3 seconds once the TV is on - it's approximately 8 yrs old, should it be replaced...

check your power switch it appears that your contacts in side your switch are fused with arcs, and are not making good contacts.
change that switch with a new one. a switch has four contacts switches in it, use a volt meter to check the 115 or 240 AC through the switch.
before changing that switch you have to check for dry joints on your power suppy section of your tv.

Phillips crt tv 3 yrs old

Your Hi voltage circuit is likely going into protection mode. getting it past this may be a fire hazard. Take it in... or "out" if you get my drift.

JVC tv "stuck" on sleep timer

I think you would have to turn off the sleep timer mode completely or increase its ON time span, say to 4 hours or so
or the lenth of time you have the TV on for. If that does not fix it then it sounds like a STANDBY MODE fault problem.
Hope this helps.

TV Switches itself back to standby mode continuously

if your remote is ok then this is due to power supply failure in your tv. either it is loose in oscillator ckt in switching section or it has failed. if not tech person call tech to fix it. not a major problem.

Sharp 34" TV

Why shouldn't it be worth fixing? It's only 4 years old, my own TV is 15yo, I fixed it twice but it's still kick'n! You have a problem in the power supply, do you have electronic's know how? And test equipment? Soldering equipment? If so we could walk you through it, If not A repair man should only cost 80 to 100 to fix it.

Sharp tv changing channels

Well, the only thing that seems to be working so far is to plug AV cables into the "input 2" ports (on the front of TV). I plugged in my PS2, without turning it on. It has not switched at random since (about 30 minutes - it had been switching off and on for the past 2 hours). Anyone else have similar success?
