I have had many problems with these unit with internal cables being loose or not seated properly. This is most likely the case, or the unit has a bad main. BD. If is new you can probably exchange the unit where you bought it, or contact Sharp and they will set you up with an auth. service center to correct the problem.

My Panasonic Model: THL32U20A will not respond. You can turn it on manually (not by remote) and once turned on, nothing works, IE: remote doesnt do anything and you cant even change channels or volume etc...

I too have exactly the same fault. The Tv even turns itself on in the middle of the night, i have to unpug it from the wall. It has been in for repair 3 times now, one guy said there is nothing wrong with it. I am keen to hear if anyone has had this fault resolved.

TV stays at the "Please Wait" screen

There is something in the system control not being satified. Probably needs a main PCB.

Have a cracked screen on my lc32sh20u . Do you


No we only offer expert advice on troubleshooting products. ie Computers, cars ect.

The only place you'll really be able to get a replacement screen for that TV would be from the company itself. Go to Sharp's website, find there contact page or customer support. Send them an email asking them if they can get you a replacement screen. Of course make sure you send the make and model of tv in the email.

They will be able to help you would with that.

I will tell you that buying a replacement and having it fixed might cost about the same if not more than a new tv.

Sharp Aquos

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).

Sharp LCD can't turn on

Bummer, one month out of warranty. This is why I always recomend keeping expensive, high tech stuff under warranty.
First thing to do is buy and download the service manual from and find out what the fail code of 1 blink means.
