Sharp Aquos LC-26D4U sound problem

I have the LC-26D4U Sharp Aquos model tv. Everything has worked fine for the 18 months or so that I've had it but now it seems as if something is internally wrong with the speaker connection. When the TV first turns on I hear a popping sound come from the right speaker. The first time this happened I turned the TV on and off a few times and the problem fixed itself. Since then, however, I hear that popping sound (just from the right speaker) and I get no sound. When the sound did work, both the left and right speaker worked fine and I still only heard the popping sound from the right speaker. I have tried different connections (HDMI, component, regular video/audio cables) and still nothing. It is certainly something internal that is the problem and I was wondering if you have heard of this problem before and know of a solution or advice. I am out of warranty and do not want to pay a few hundred if this is something I can easily fix myself.
Thanks for any help.
Same problem here with the popping sound and intermittent audio outages. Did anyone ever have luck with a solution? I know Gavin888, you said Time Warner was going to take a look at yours. What did they do to fix it?

Thanks very much!

Yes this is a common problem. You have to have it refered to a TV SHOP. I can fix it for you but in CA. the wiring on the speakers needs to be upgraded to a thicker wire. The gauge is to small for the current needed to flow evenly.

Well, apparently this is a huge problem with many flat screen TV's. They surpress the volume output from all external sources (like DVD players) so you don't blow up their tiny speakers. They just expect you to add on a home theatre system to boost the volume their small speakers cannot handle. This is a real problem if you are in a boat or RV and do no have the space or electrical capacity to do this. I had the TV checked out and Sharpe said it met their factory standards so there was no help there. We have had to go with a small amp & speakers just to hear the TV & DVD movies etc. They need to put better quality speakers in these TVs. The video is awesome, now work on the audio guys!

My sharp aquos television sound is very low even on max.


I had this problem with my Charter and the box had a sound button on the actual box, not the remotes. Now I have switched to Direct TV Box and have found while not so low I can't hear it, it is much lower than I know it can be and have to turn it up in the higher numbers or turn on the surround sound to hear it. Anyone know what to do with Direct Box, Direct didn't know.

No sound on Sharp Aquos 37' LC-37D4U


When I first bought my Sharp Aquos 42 inch TV...I started having sound problems...turned the volume way up to 60 maximum and could hardly hear it.
Then after the TV was on for 4 or 5 hours, there would be crackling chirping popping noise. It seems after the TV heats up for awhile...there is MAJOR sound problems.
So I was advised to buy a Sony surround system and connect it to my TV...deactivate the TV volume and use ONLY the surround sound. I did that...but the surround audio cables are connected to the back of the TV and I get the exact SAME problem with chirping and crackling sounds after the TV heats up.
SHARP IS NOT BEING HONEST WITH CUSTOMERS.
There should definitely be a RECALL on the sound board.
Replacing it does nothing....the overheating of the TV just damages the new sound board and the TV has to be repaired again and again.

Sharp Aquos LC-26D4U sound problem


This unit has a chronic problem with the insulator material used on the heat sink on the ic's on the AV Bd. The unit must be disassembled and the AV bd. removed. The insulation on especially IC 2502 breaks down and must be cleaned off of the bd. and the ic and new insulator part # PSPAZA663WJKZ must be ordered and used as the insulator pad. If you send me an email to missiontracetv@msn.com I can send you the copy of the Sharp technical bulletin LCDTV-194.
