Question about Sharp AQUOS LC-32GP1U 32 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Sharp Aquos 32 inch television

Our baby grabbed the remote and pressed a bunch of buttons. Now, when you turn on the television, a large black square pops up and blocks the screen.
We tried un plugging it, I've searched the manual, but I can't fix it. I think it has to do with the closed captioning.

My Sharp tv remote will not turn on / off tv. It will turn on by the main power switch on tv but not by remote.

From page 8 of the manual:

The POWER indicator on the AQUOS television should light GREEN indicating you have power to the AQUOS television.

If the POWER indicator on the AQUOS television still does not light up, press TV POWER on the remote control to turn the power on.

Lost the remote for my sharp tv. And the control panel is locked. Who do I unlock the control panel with out the remote?

If the problem you are having is that the television's operation lock out for the buttons on the tv has been enabled then the only way to undo that is with the Sharp remote control. The only work around I can think of is to perform an INIT, which is a factory reset. I do not know is Sharp customer service will still walk you through that over the phone because it is a detailed and dangerous (in that it can wipe the memory of your television if done improperly) process. I do not know what type of Sharp you have i.e. aquos or non aquos. 800-BESHARP is the number for non aquos support and 877-332-7867 is the number for aquos support (open 24 hours for aquos support last I checked)---32 inch and over aquos that is.

I have a Sharp AQUOS LC-32D47UA 32", black box

Press the cc button on your remote control. You want cc to be off. Play around with the cc button to become comfortable. Press it over and over again. Observed that a different closed captioning option appears on your screen each time you press the cc button. Now press cc and when it says cc off do not press the button anymore.

    My sharp 32" LCD stopped recognizing the remote, b...

    I had the same issue with my Sharp Aquos 52 inch LCD TV. I called Sharp. The tech had me unplug my TV, take the batteries out of the remote (TV remote not cable) and press all buttons on the remote (including the buttons under the flip top at the bottom of the remote). I did this, put the batteries back in and plugged in the tv and everything worked. I had gone 4 months having to use the surround sound for volume and turning the TV on and off by hand. This took 2 minutes to fix.

    Green light is on but screen is black

    It's either the backlight lamp or backlight inverter is busted due to a power failure or fluctuation. Here's how to determine which is which:
    1. Grab a flashlight.
    2. Turn on the TV.
    3. Shine the flashlight onto the screen.
    4. If you cannot see any display even a faint one, the backlight inverter is dead, else the backlight lamps are busted.
    5. Replace which ever is the culprit.
