Question about Sharp Aquos LC-32D40U Television

Picture goes out but sound is still there

My picture goes out but the sound is still there. Sometimes I can see a very faint shadow of a picture but that's about it. I'll turn off the TV, wait a few minutes and turn it back on. It's ok for a minute or so and then it starts all over again. Sometimes I can go for days without a problem and then it starts again.

Re: Picture goes out but sound is still there

I just had the same problem. I've had the LC-32D40U for about a year and this is the first time it happens. When turning on, the "Please Wait" notice comes up, but then it goes completely black and I don't get any picture or sound at all.

I called Sharp. They asked for the date of purchase (1 year for parts, 90 day for labor), and gave me a Case Number in case I have to send it in for repair.

No solution though.

Turning off

Hi dcough2,
haev you tried to unplug it for some minutes, and then connecting it back again?
Anothwr thing to revise is if the socket is used for more than devices than the TV, it could also be weak power, so your TV image fait, or go dark, or it just shuts off because it have not enough power to use.

Dp32648 picture goes black, tv stays on with sound.

Dim the lights in the room, turn on the set and shine a bright flashlight on the screen. Do you see a faint picture? If you see a faint picture, you have a backlight fault. Could be several things, you could have a bad backlamp, defective inverter, defective 24vdc power supply, or a faulty main board. I would highly recommend you get a diagnosis

Tv comes on then picture goes out but still has sound but no picture

Sounds like a back light failure. To verify this, turn on the set, dim the lights in room. Shine a bright flash light on the screen, if you see a faint picture on the screen, you have a back light failure. You either have a blown back lamp, 24v circuit fault, or a failed inverter board.

Th-42pd25 humming sound and faint picture

Sounds like an inverter transformer humming, not producing enough current to display a bright picture. Check the caps in power supply, next to the plug where it says 24v and goes to the inverter board on the left side of tv. Or check for bad connections on inverter transformers on inverter board, Thanks

Large dark shadows on display,but the menu can be seen faintly,and no control over brightness but overall brightness low.The electronics is functioning o.k, but the dark shadows block out all images...

Sounds like a Z-SUS board. This board "erases" the picture between frames and prepares the screen for the next frame. If it goes out, your picture will be very, very dark. As for the reason... It's electronics, they just break. If you want to attempt the repair yourself, you will need to post the full service model number. ex: 50PC3D-UE.SUSLLJR Otherwise, we can't get you the correct part number for the Z-SUS. I hope this was helpful.

Picture goes black but still has sound

Use a strong light next to the screen and look for a faint image on the screen. If you see a faint picture, your backlight has a problem. Service shop time. Not a simple fix.
