Question about Sharp Aquos LC-37GD6U 37 in. LCD HDTV
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!
