Does my LC-13S2U have a digital tuner?

Going over you manual for the tv, it doesn't have a digital tuner.
You'll need a digital converter box for broadcast channels.
Indoor antenna will work. But, an outdoor antenna will work best for reception.
If you need a copy of your manual, you can download one with this link:

I have the same problem when going to dark scenes from a bright scene or during channel changes. Sharp sent a tech under warranty and he installed new software to no avail. He called sharp tech support and they suggested turning on opc. The TV works fine but you must adjust sharpness and contrast to achieve an acceptable picture. I paid $868.00 for the set a Sam's club and will buy an extended warranty. I will not buy another sharp. My 40" sony works perfectly.

Sharp AQUOS - Failing Light?

Well it does go down an assembly line so you do have the chance of picking up a bad one, I believe that you should call the retail store that you bought it from and talk about bringing it back to the store for exchange for a new TV. If you have any other questions please message me. Thanks!

LCD and Viewfinder just blank in daylight but working well when indoors or anywhere during night

yes i did have this problem too. sadly i could not figure it out either so i traded with a friend. he found out the problem. he said you have to just leave the camcorder on playback and just let it sit there for about 3 minutes to warm up.
