Sharp Aquos 46 In TV Problems:

4 times since we bought the TV a year ago (few months apart) we would be watching TV then all of a sudden the TV freezes, and the picture is snowy with about 25% of a picture behind it. Currently we are being told it is our cable (analog signal) but we got the cable tested and the levels are fine. In order for this problem to stop we have to unplug the TV and wait a few seconds and plug it back in.

    I have the same exact problem. But I have DirecTV. It's not your cable. Sometimes I will get a group of pixels that get stuck. After that happens, the TV will not respond to the remote. Unplugging is the only solution to this problem. This is the second set with the same problem. The first one was returned to Costco before the return period ended. This one will have to be fixed. No more Sharp for me.

    This problem happened to me last night. I have only had my TV for about 2 years, and there is a snowy film that covers the whole screen. I know it is the TV, though, because we have Tivo and when we tried to watch a previously recorded program it looked the same, so it was not the cable. Also, it would then not even respond to the remote...nothing would work. We had to unplug it to turn it off.

Sharp list no issues or service tips for this model but I am sure most freeze ups are and issue of weak cable signals or defective cable receivers. If this has truly been elimnated the main digital pcb in the TV could be issue or more likely the TV may need the latest software upgrade. This is most likely only able to be facilitated by a Sharp auth. service center.

Sharp Aquos has distorted colors

The set should be transported upright but that rarely causes these issues-----suspect either main signal board or also possible is the power supply (for voltages changing when set is on).

Also if set was opened look for all plugs to be seated--ones with cloth tape where they connect look at first.

failing that based on age of set consider having a technician look at it or if over 3 years consider a new set with extended warranty--70% of this type of set in our shop (100 plus sets at any time in for repair) are less than 3 years old.

Sharp aquos hdtv has sound but shows a white screen

yes and no. That particular tv you have is done for, but if you just purchased it 6 months ago, you are still within you 1 year warranty with sharp. they will ask you to take it to a authorized service center and you need to follow through with the process. about a week or 2 will pass and the service center will deem the unit unrepairable and sharp will replace it if they cant solve the problem. give em call..good luck 2u
