Question about Sharp Aquos LC-15E1U 15 in. LCD EDTV

Aquos 37" LCD

My 15 month old Aquos spontaneously lost the picture while viewing. I still have sound but no picture. I have tried unplugging for 24 hours per Sharp advise. I've reset the unit. No luck. I took it to an ASC 1 1/2 hours away and they called to tell me they can fix it for a mere $600.00. They say its the "main controller". I am skeptical of this since I have sound. I even have a color change when I turn on the TV. What I'm trying to say is you can tell from looking at the unit if it is off or on. Any suggestions?

    I have a Sharp Aquos 32. It will loose its picture periodically for no reason. I still have sound but no picture. I some times can get the picture back by turning off the unit. It dose not work every time. Sometimes I have to unplug the unit. It dosn't matter what chanel your on. I am going to leave it unplug for 24 hours and see if that helps.

I too have an Aquos.
Do you have cable? I've had this crop up repeatedly, except that I can unplug the cable box and/or tv from AC power, leave it that way for a minute, and then plug in again. So far, this has worked. My suspicion has been on the cable equipment. This happens far more often on the HD channels than the others. Recently, had a really good cable tech come to the house, and trouble shoot problems with signal strength. He may have fixed it...time will tell.I really hope it isn't the TV, as it is out of warranty.

Screen black - Suddenly went black screen with no picture, no sound and no menu access. Power light is on. Only 18 months old. Have tried unplugging for 1 hour to reset to no avail. Any ideas?

I had issues start around 15 months - the unit would freeze up, or change channels spontaneously, or turn on and off at random. So far we've not any permanent solutions. The best we've got is to lock the control panel out (which didn't keep it from turning on and off) after which we tried resetting to factory defaults. I've emailed the company and am awaiting a reply.

Something like you describe sounds like a fuse issue or something else after the power supply.

Sharp Aquos LC-37 is 20 months old and would not power on

it is 99% certain that what needs to be replaced is the power board.

That's the #1 problem across the board with TVs that work for some time and then start behaving like you describe.

If you know what a scredriver is I'd suggest you do it yourself.

You can seek for a new board on eBay or through Google. I'd search for "LC-37GD6U power board".

If you don't find one you'd start searching for other similar TVs and compare the pictures of the board with what you pull out of yours.

Of course you can have a technician do all that for you for a $150 more.

Sharp aquos 37" has picture but no sound ? unplugged and changed audio back to factory settings still no sound? is there a fuse some were for the sound card ?

Try the main resets in the back by the a/v in and out jacks. If this does not work, call Sharp Customer Service and tell them that you already did the resets. There is a known problem with a heat dissipation pad and they will send a repair tech to replace the pad for free, even if you are out of warranty. At least that was the case for my LC-32D6U.

No picture -- white screen -- no sound

With no video and the the colored stripes, it sounds like the LVDS cable needs to be reconnected to the LCD control board or the control board itself is bad. If the unit is only 3-4 months old, it should be covered by warranty
