Re: volume issue

I have the same problem. When I adjusted the volume on the cable box, it was solved. Turn up the volume on the cable box, and when you use your remote, it's super loud, even at midway!

Re: volume issue

Very loud it never gonna be. It's a tv with very small speakers, but I have a lot of customers who complain about that and I checked first the signal source. Sometimes the sattelite receiver or cable box give a sound not so good. The best way to check it is to plug something (an antenna or just a 2 inch wire) in the coaxial plug to see if on the tuner is the same sound. I bet is gonna be stronger.

Re: volume issue

This is for Draude,

Hey, Spicy comments buddy !
Didn't mean to offend you, but it's obvious there are folks out there upset with volume issues on the 42in Sharp Aquos.

I found a Review posted on another site:
"The sound on the Sharp was abysmal (tinny sound, max volume level far too low). Honestly, this $1200 TV sounded like a $5 AM radio."

Another review on a site reads:
"Sharp said it was a cable card problem. The volume problem persisted until it completely went out. Apparently there is a heat sensor problem and the television will overheat and cause damage to the volume control. They specifically call it a "heat sink problem". It is not a cable card problem"

Then I found a comment posted on this site:
"Max volume on Sharp Aquos is EAR SPLITTING"

Ear Splitting sound means REALLY LOUD!
Is it possible to get ear splitting volume without box resonance?

When we pay alot of money for a's reasonable to expect a decent sound to accompany it. The 42in Sharp has 2 x 15 watt speakers inside.
Small speakers can have fantastic sound, so Size has nothing to do with Quality.
I agree with's the way it was designed...and that is the's a Design Flaw and Sharp needs to correct it.

Either the speakers should be better quality, or correct the "heat sensors" so the volume is not damaged.

I read alot of your solutions to other problems....and you have been helpful to many folks.
Have a great day!

Sharp aquos tv won't turn on with remote, replaced ir board, still not working

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

Sharp tv model lc-26sh12u very low vulumn even at max volumn control

Yes, don't buy SHARP, problem solved! SHARP is the worst brand of LCD TV. I had to bring my brand new SHARP TV in for repair within 8 months of buying it brand new, and of course it was no longer under the 90 day labor warranty. Also, every person I know who has a SHARP TV has issues with volume and eventually end up with a black vertical line along the side of the screen within 1 to 2 years. I highly reccomend SONY, PANASONIC, even SAMSUNG, LG or VIZIO. Heck, I'd go with Toshiba or Phillips before I'd ever buy anything SHARP again I was so annoyed with their customer service.

My sharp aquos television sound is very low even on max.

I had this problem with my Charter and the box had a sound button on the actual box, not the remotes. Now I have switched to Direct TV Box and have found while not so low I can't hear it, it is much lower than I know it can be and have to turn it up in the higher numbers or turn on the surround sound to hear it. Anyone know what to do with Direct Box, Direct didn't know.

Volume is too low

Just bought Sharp LC-32DH510E and it is going straight back to the retailer,as its of no use to me,and a shame
as its not a bad picture for 36 inch..

I have to use it at full volume,and I cannot understand
how Sharp put these on the market with this problem.
it`s pure insanity and they must have had thousands of sets returned.

All their technical Guy could tell me,was he sure hopes
the next range dont have the same problem,and no fix
other than getting an amplifier,as basically the speakers
are rubbish.l

Volume is too low, even then it is turn up to the max.

Have you looked at the menu on your cable or satellite box to see if there is a seperate volume control for the box?

If you have satellite, I am assuming you at least have a converter box hooked up. If so, make sure the converter box volume is set at its max. There may even be a volume setting in the converter menu that forces the volume output of the box to always be at full so that you don't get variations in audio when changing channels. Warning...before attempting this, please turn down the volume on your tv to at least the middle setting so you don't blow your tv speakers if this works.
