Sharp LC-52D62U HDTV won't tune-in channel 21.

My Sharp LC-52D62U HDTV won't tune-in channel 21. I have cable TV and the coax cable is connected directly to the TV. I've done the channel scan several times but it skips over channel 21. If I tune to it manually all I get is black and white wavy lines and buzz in the audio. The previous smaller LCD TV tuned it in ok. The cable company came and checked the cable at the TV and his testing instrument showed channel 21 was working fine.

My question is: Do you know of any service codes to manually change the channel frequency for channel 21?

My thought is that channel 21 is a little off the tuning frequency to receive the signal properly.

BTW, The TV tunes in all of the other channels including all the QAM local HDTV channels just fine.

I finally got Sharp to repair the TV. It was under warenty but they said if the problem wasn't with the TV they were going to charge me for the service call. I told them I wanted a new TV. They sent the tech instead of a new TV. He replaced the turner card and it worked!! Now I get all the channels as well as channel 21.

Sounds like the signal is probably too strong. The TV is not the problem.

Connect air antenna to RF(coax) input of tv. Go to the menu and look for channel setup.Select antenna and auto scan. When done scanning you should have whatever stations you are able to pickup. Connect Sat reciever to one of the other input on the tv. Then go to INPUT or SOURCE on remote and select tv for local and what ever input you sat box is connected to for dish.

How are you connecting it to cable tv?

If you are using a coaxial cable to a cable box you have to turn to channel 3.0 with a Sharp remote by pressing 3.0 enter the dot (.) is down by the 0. There is a way around this if you don't have a Sharp remote. You can go into the menu and complete a channel scan. If the model you own is the one pictured then you should have the coax cable connected where it says analog if you are connecting to a cable box this way.

If you are using composite, component, or hdmi cables you press the input button on the television and pick the right input. It is recommended that you do not use the coax cable anyway unless you do not have a cable box. There is an input button on the television and on the remote.

Hi,
Unfortunately the panel is cracked internally can't can't be repaired the whole panel has to be replaced. most times the panel will cost as much as you paid for the set. My son cracked ours when it was only 3 weeks old it doesn't take much force to ruin one.
