Question about Sharp 32C-240 32" TV

Sharp TV switches to "input 2"

I bought a used Sharp 32" TV last fall (the "big" kind, not LCD). Worked fine for a month or so, but now it switches itself to the "input 2." Seems to happen primarily when it's cold or raining outside... but not every time. It can go weeks without the problem, and then it starts up again. Thoughts?

I'm simply guessing on the model below...

    I have same exact problem but it keeps running through the inputs now it doesn't even stop at input 1. It is very random too. It is very rainy outside but never noticed the weather before. Ever since we plugged a video game into the front consoles it started this and has been doing it since then two years ago on and off. My friend has this exact tv too and it does it on hers. What's up Sharp? Guess my next tv won't be a Sharp.

Mine does the exact same thing. I've had it for a few years no, and it just started doing this. It's so annoying. I don't think the weather has anything to do with it, though. It started switching itself just every once in a while, not it is almost every time I turn it on. Sometimes it takes an hour or so to start doing this, other times it's right away. Help!!

I sugest that you should contact service provider or return the unit where you bought your tv. so your warranty will not be void. Good day and best regards.

32 inch LCD sharp tv switches audio from mono to sterio every 4 to 5 min

When you are connecting this television to a signal source with a coax cable this happens. The solution is to connect with an RCA/composite cable instead and utilize the television's inputs instead of using input tv.

Hi andrew, its not a big problem.. Decent TV. but the pixels are DEAD. that means you have to recover them by fixing the LCD. this would cost you around £40-60 for a 32 inch TV. hope this helps!

Sharp lc-c5277un, tv turns on but no picture, switched the cable to the blue ray input and worked but no other inputs work. Happened before, Costco had me do some kind of reset and worked till today.

your main board that takes all the input is the cause to this problem. you can try to reset the tv by disconecting it from the power outlet, then press the power button on tv (not on the remote) and hold it down for 30 seconds

I had the same issue with my Sharp Aquos 52 inch LCD TV. I called Sharp. The tech had me unplug my TV, take the batteries out of the remote (TV remote not cable) and press all buttons on the remote (including the buttons under the flip top at the bottom of the remote). I did this, put the batteries back in and plugged in the tv and everything worked. I had gone 4 months having to use the surround sound for volume and turning the TV on and off by hand. This took 2 minutes to fix.

Acoustic Solutions TV Fault

I think you are looking at a power board problem. I had the same thing happen to a Vizio and I replaced the power board and it solved the problem. It could also be the input board but most likely the power board.

Sharp TV switches to "input 2"

There's an option on the menu to tuen 'demo mode' on and off. If it's set to on, that's your problem. It will be switching input sources every 2 minutes or so. Switch this off and it'll be ok again.
