Sharp Aquos blacks out using PS2 & DVD player

Recently, my Sharp Aquos television has started blacking out while playing games (using Input 3) and watching DVDs (using Input 2). The top third of the screen starts flickering white and then the entire screen goes black and doesn't come back. I can get the picture back by just turning the television off and then on again, however the blacking out becomes more frequent the more the television stays on. It seems to do it most when the screen starts to fade to black during scene changes on DVDs, or during loading times for games. However, after about a couple hours of this it just starts doing it randomly. This problem does not occur while watching normal television. Have you heard of this problem, and is there a solution?

Re: Sharp Aquos blacks out using PS2 & DVD player

A friend and I both have the LC-32D64U Aquos sets with the same problem. They came with firmware version S0804171.

Installing (reverting?) to firmware S0801101 on Sharp's website resolved these issues.

If this does not help, the component board needs to be replaced.

Nothing on screen when DVD inputs are plugged into our Aquos.

Check that the input you are plugging the DVD into on the TV is actually selected as the TVs input. Try using a different input and also different input types/cables. Most DVD players will have HDMI and also either component or composite type outputs. Try the different cable type and make sure the TV is looking at the correct input. Do you have sound?

My dvd player doesn't fill the screen on my Sharp

There are settings on most DVD players as well as TV's that allow you to adjust the type of display you want. Make sure both the DVD and TV are set to the same display type (usually either 16:9 for your type of TV). If that still does not fill the screen you will have to use the Zoom function on either your DVD or TV. This will cut off part of your movie, but should allow you to fill the screen. Most DVD movies will also allow you to choose widescreen or normal viewing from their menu. Again, you will lose a small part of either side of the movie, but at least you will fill your screen.

TV going black still hear sound

I suspect if you are using the DVD to play via a Scart connector , then the problem is simply that the Scart cable has became a bit slack. Try taking the Scart out of the rear connections from the DVD & the TV & then just pushing them back in again to make sure they have a good contact.

Shine a bright light on the screen, do you see the image (but very very very dark)? If so, its either a bad inverter or lamps, which are only sold with the LCD panel as an assembly, which is very expensive (more than the TV is worth).

try this 1st theres a setting on your dvd player. try to play with it a bit if that doesnt work. look at cable your using. If your using a Component cable you might have switched them wrong. if still that doesnt work try other forms of cable like S-video or HDMI or just plain Composite Video.
