Question about Sharp Aquos LC-20B6US 20 in. LCD Television

2 Answers

Upper half of image only

The following happens very often when playing a DVD and sometimes also when watching certain TV stations: My SHARP AQUOS LC-20B6U suddenly just displays only the upper half of the image (in good quality). When this happens, I can get it back to normal by pushing the menu key on my remote control 2 times. Do I have to bring this Liquid Crystal Display to a repair service or can I do something myself?

Thanks in advance for your advice

Re: Upper half of image only

Make sure the aspect ratio is set correctly. Also try a different dvd player and see if the same problem occurs. If the problem is fixed when you hit the menu button on the TV remote it is def a problem with the TV. The fact that it happens on Cable and DVD leads me to believe it is def a problem with the TV. Go into the menu try a few different aspect ratios like 4:3 and 16:9 when the problem occurs again. I doubt its the display if this problem is not occurring very often.

I have a Sharp Aquos # LC-45GD4U. It now suddenly turns off by itself and stays off until I turn it back on. This happens while watching live TV or playing back a recorded show. Ideas?

Check the ventilation fins on the back. Sometimes they get obstructed with dust and then heat builds up. The TV then shuts down to protect itself from overheating. You can use a blow dryer to blow it out.

Sharp Aquos LC-37D44U only shows B&W images from DVD & VHS source

First thing- why not just use the HDMI instead of standard def cables in the first place? Anyway- If the RCA-video (yellow composite cable) is not producing color, 1 of 2 things may be wrong: 1. You accidentally connected the a/v cables [yellow white and red] to [red green and blue] component inputs or vice versa, or.. 2. Your TV or DVD player is somehow set to the wrong video format. Check the DVD settings for video output format and video connector type. Format should be NTSC, and connector should be composite and/or s-video for the cables you're using.
If this is only happening when connecting the DVD player through the VCR, then check to make sure the same cables connecting the DVD player to the the VCR are also connected to the TV from the VCR.
BTW- if this is just to record DVDs to a VCR, I'll tell you it's not worth it. If your DVD player has an HDMI port, your picture quality will be so much better than if you're watching a VCR copy of one. Your new HDTV will look worse than an old standard def TV. Worse; I'm not kidding.
I hope some of this helps.

Sharp Aquos LC-32D43U

To adjust screen size, choose the View Mode feature on the top right of the remote control. Zoom size is full screen for watching DVD movies, but sometimes there is still a thin black band due to the formatting of the dvd (unless you buy full screen versions) S. Stretch view mode is best for TV Movies.(usually fills whole screen) Occasionally there are TV movies which just don't respond to being stretched to fill the screen, it's just the way the signal is coming through . 1080i/p detects the resolution of the signal and displays the same number of pixels on the screen, but a 720p signal input will be viewed in full screen.

Aquos Turns off by itself

How many times per second does the POWER led blink? (dont worry about the OPC).

1x per second (constant, steady blink) = bad inverter/lamps
2x per second = bad power supply
3x per second = bad main board

There isnt really anything you can do to fix it yourself, you can order the part over EBay, not hard to install just unscrew/unplug --- plug/screw..
