Switch power off with the "On/Off" button on the television.

2) Hold down "MENU" and "VOLUME (-)" buttons on the TV and press on/off button to turn the TV on.

3) When you turn the TV is on a small K will appear on the left of the screen.

4) Then press "VOLUME (-)" and "CH (-)" press at the same time and the service the menu appears !!!

To exit simply turn the TV on and off and repeat step 2 to remove the K on the screen.

    When I follow step 2 the TV won't turn back on? Do I hold the menu and BOTH volume buttons or just the minus volume? I've tried both and the TV won't turn back on if I'm holding other buttons?

SOURCE: Sharp light turns green thern turns yellow screen goes black

it is going into sleep mode, good luck with this.... i am currently asking how to get my hard drive to quite putting my monitor into sleep mode.

although it hasn't worked for me because my screen stays black, one of the options given to me is to try to start in safe mode and then adjust your settings to "never" on the energy/sleep/hibernate mode

some one else suggested that i remove and reseat the video card

hopefully one of those will work for you

Unfortunatley, they don't make TV sets as dependable as they used too because they don't want them to last. Your problem with this unit is that your panel is going out. Sharp does not supply panels because they are not cost effective to replace. I hope this helped your cause.

Yellow light on when ready to take picture

On some cameras this means a slow shutter speed and that the picture may come out blurry because there's not enough available light for a faster shutter speed to get an acceptably sharp picture.

Left side of screen going yellow and pink with leters in double

The convergence modules have gone bad Along with the new parts kit are fuses, diodes, and resistors that usually fry when these modules go bad. Depending on the model, there will be two and sometimes 3 of these modules that have to be replaced. Each module has 50 pins each that have to be soldered, so unless you have experience with complicated TV repairs, the cost to do that repair may be as much as a flat screen TV of the same screen size as yours.

I have a Sharp LC40LE511E. There is some sort of fault and I don't know what it is? Blinking LED lights, no picture. So, when plugged in, the power LED is red as it should be on standby. Press on button either on the TV or on the remote, and it flashes green as if it is about to come on, then it flashes back to red, and then blinks between green and red until unplugged. I have shined lights up close, but the pixels seem completely off so I don't think it's the backlights. It could be the backlights if the TV somehow knows and is preventing them from turning on, but it just doesn't feel like that's the problem. All the capacitors are fine, and in fact, all the boards and components look in quite good condition. As it is flashing green and red, I figured it could be a reset issue. The previous owner had no remote so perhaps they kept over pressing certain buttons on the TV it's self, causing some sort of crash. So, I have tried the old unplug, volume down and channel up, plug in, turn on etc. Nothing happened. Not sure if that was the right way round for this model but it seems to be the standard reset for all of them. Yes there are slightly different variations, but that is the only one I have tried, both with the onboard buttons, and the new remote buttons. The remote is legit and seems to work perfectly fine. Tried asking the people, and never got a direct response re: the actual fault code that blinking red then green, means. If anyone could at least tell me that, I could be on my way to figuring out what is actually wrong with it, or how to reset it. As the pixels seem to be completely off, it may be a power board failure, but then, why would it be teasing me with flashing green? I am perplexed. Any ideas would be much appreciated thanks. It's 109 pound for a new one, so it's really not worth getting anyone to take a look.
