    I have the same problem with dvd volume.

    Watching TV or VCR is fine, but when I play a DVD, the volume doesn't do a thing past 30....I push it to the Max (60) and can barely hear the movie.

    I tried unconnecting & reconnecting, but the problem remains.

    I see other folks on this site have the same problem...whats up with that?

    Come on Sharp...we paid Big bucks for these TV' us !

    The picture quality is fantastic but dvd volume sucks big time.

I am a Sharp servicing technician and I have seen this "problem" with this particular model many times. I have tried replacing the Main Board and the Terminal Board and it does not help. The reason i put "problem" in quotes is because I came to the conclusion that this is model is just not that loud. However, a few months after the initial production run, BAM, these TV's are as loud as any other TV on the market so sharp must have caught onto this.

42 inches LCD TV,Aqous brand. where to buy parts inthe philippines

Sometimes the lizards can cause a lot of board wear-off as they being highly conductable and when shorted within the electrical circuit can make the secretions runs into the board therby contaminating and shorting circuits. If you are able to remove and use petrol to wash off the dirt on the board, look for open tracks that have burned or corroded. If you are able to trace and rewire using thin strands of wires , and assuming that no component damage had taken place, you can try this out.
If not as suggested you need to find the cost of a new board if a final consensus is taken.

Sharp Aquos LC-52D64U LCD-52 wdscrn tht won't scan in digital...

Seeing that you have a superior brand and not getting channels is a bummer. It may have to do with the setting, make sure you're set to cable rather antenna and then do a rescan. Btw, often times channels from an over the antenna is much clearer than from cable because cable tv has to compress the signal. If you're high in the air like the top floor of a building a cheap $10 will pull in great free digital channels. It helps to experiment and read the troubleshooting guide in your manual.

Sharp aqous 42"LCD..will not recieve digital over the used to !!..any ideas???

First make sure you have a good signal, one you know definitely works. Then make sure you connect to coaxial input on Television. Put television on channel 4. Which is good indicator. If no picture/ just snow. You want to access your T V's Menu. Go to Channel Set Up. You should see SIGNAL TYPE. Make sure this is set to CABLE. Right below is a AUTO PROGRAM selection. Let the Television run all the way through. You should be able to view Television as soon as this is done. Providing you have a good signal and there is only one Coaxial input on TV. If there's more than one for example ANALOG, or DIGITAL. Try each one. Each Televsion is different. This is this basic troubleshooting steps. I've done this at a hundreds of installations and trouble calls. Good Luck

Setting up receive set top box and tv for surround sound

Plug the TV to an open channel on your receiver via this output:
*Rear, 1 x Digital audio output (coaxial) ( TOSLINK )
This will look like a single RCA output plug.
Set that input channel on your receiver to some sort of virtual surround mode because it doesn't look like your HDTV has a decoder in it (meaning it will come out stereo and the receiver will have to fake it).
Turn the volume all the way down on the TV and use the receiver to control TV volume just as you do with DVDs.

*Substitute this with the digital audio output on your set top box if you are sending video only to the TV from the set top box (component, DVI or s-video connections). So video goes to the TV, audio to the receiver.
