Question about Sharp Aquos LC-26P70E 26 in. LCD Television

Sharp Aquos 32" LCD Screen goes black!

I've owned my Sharp 32" Aquos LCD for almost 24 months and had problems since the warranty ended (go figure!). Seems like everyone has this problem. Anyway, the screen goes black after a few minutes and works when it wants to. Recently the screen says "Please Wait" then goes black automatically never displaying a picture at all. The sound component is still there, the channels still change, and the image can be very faintly seen up close as shadows.

  • I had my husband take it apart and tighten screws, but the screws were already tight as they could be.
  • I took the TV to a TV repair shop in December, and they claimed they "couldn't find anything wrong with it."
  • I've notified Sharp and they claim that "nobody has these problems and my warranty is up", so I'm basically S.O.L. (Their Customer Service Dept. is awful!)

I've spent so much money on this thing, I would love to fix it because I think it's worth it.

Does anyone have this similar problem and have maybe a solution?

    No thanks, that won't help me repair my TV at all. Any other actual suggestions?

    I have the same problem as well. It actually works when I turn off the TV and shake the living hell out of it and then turn it back on. That will usually last for an hour or two and then blank out again with very faint images in black display barely showing. Sound is there as well.

    I have the exact same problem only mine has gotten progressively worse. I can only watch it for about five minutes then the screen goes blank. Sometimes when I turn it on, it turns itself back off immediately.



    I read another blog that said it's probably either the backlight or the power supply for the backlight. Either repair is probably very expensive I'm sure.

    Sharp Aquos 45" LCD has a thin blue line down the middle of the screen. This set is 23 months old, with average use.

    Same problem, there's a free e-waste pick-up in my neighborhood this Friday. What else can I do, out of warranty and Sharp repair center wants $800 just to look at it.

SOURCE: Sharp aquos lcd screen goes blank

The problem is most likely the the screws are loose on the inverter boards. The screws must be tighted as they provide the ground to the inverter bds. The inverter boards are undet the shields on both sides of the unit after pulling the back cover. One way to make sure that you are losing back lights and not video is when your picture goes black, shine a flash light on the screen at an angle and will see the video is still there. This mean the back lights are out. If you do not see the video it may be another problem

Sharp aquos hdtv has sound but shows a white screen


yes and no. That particular tv you have is done for, but if you just purchased it 6 months ago, you are still within you 1 year warranty with sharp. they will ask you to take it to a authorized service center and you need to follow through with the process. about a week or 2 will pass and the service center will deem the unit unrepairable and sharp will replace it if they cant solve the problem. give em call..good luck 2u

Sharp Aquos Sound problem


This unit should be under warranty. DO NOT open it up as that would void the warranty. I would try and see if there is a pattern to when the sound fades. This will be helpful to the service center. At the very least, log a service call stating that the problem is intermittant. Then if the problem goes away on its own, but re-appears after the warranty is over, you should still receive warranty coverage.

Sharp Aquos 32" screen size too big!


Check your cable remote. You might have it set to HD zoom. This happened to us when our little girl got a hold of the cable remote.
