Sharp Aquos 32


I bought a Sharp Aquos 32" TV just over a year ago and recently the picture goes off but the sound remains, this normally happens when changing channels with Sky but it somestimes just happens in the middle of watching a program. I've googled the problems and seen quite a lot of people with the same problem but no solution and now the TV is out of warranty. Sharp support have been less than useless!

    I have the exact same TV and a very similar problem, I turn on the tv and it flashes the picture ( via sky ) for 1 second and then goes to a black screen but I can still hear what is going on from what Im watching. There is a cable at the black which I "wiggle" around and after about 12 attempts if I get lucky it stays on. Sometimes it comes on and stays on for about 3 minutes and then the picture dissapears or it will come on for 1 second and then the picture dissapears. Any suggestions to help sort this as its 3 years old now would be great.

    Frequently when we turn our 32" Sharp Aquos we get the 'please wait' notice and then the screen goes black. We hear sound but then nothing. Usually we just keep turning it on and off until we get a picture, but sometimes even after we get a picture, it blacks out after just a few seconds. It's very frustrating. One thing is for sure - I won't buy a Sharp TV again!

Sounds like one of three things:

1) Mainboard/Tuner problems - although I'm really only saying this because you guys seem to think its associated with your over the air channels.
2) Power board problems. You power board/inverter may be damaged in some way - blown capacitor or other malfunctions. This is very possible as this could result in the backlight turning off and the screen going black but keeping the keeping the sound. If this is the problem, it will at some time start to happen constantly. Have a pro open it up and look at the power board.

3) The backlight is defective/dying. The backlight is a set of lights that reflects through the LCD panel. If the screen looks black, but you might see a faint picture or you still hear sound, then the backlight is not on. The panel itself could be defective. You can fix it by replacing the whole LCD panel (expensive), replacing the backlight panel itself (need a busted LCD of the same size with a working backlight), or fix the backlight, which is tough and risky.

Most likely its either the power board or backlight. Either way, you need someone to open up the TV and take a look inside. Good luck! Hope it works out.

Picture goes off..sound stays on

Make sure the cooling to the TV is not blocked. It is on all the time even when off. Some of the spply cucuits remain on continuously. try uplugging the unit. Let it cool. If it is an older TV the back lighting may be dieing, then it is Tech. time

Speaker distortion on SHARP 37" Aquos Hi Def

When you are changing channels you are using the tuner of the sat reeiver. the tv does not know you are changing a channel . It is just receiving a constant signal from the SAT receiver. I would suspect a problem with the receiver. Try another one first .

Sharp Aquos LC-32D41U pictures problem

I have had exactly the same problem. Sounds daft but by not using the remote, and only using the power on/off switch on the TV itself, it is working idea why
Use the remore for changing programmes etc but not for on/off
Try it anyway because I know how annoying this is
