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?

    I am having the same problem but now it will not fix itself when I shut off the power. It just stays black. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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?

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.

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.
