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

2 Answers

We just set up our 37 in sharp and get no picture

The first screen (select Language) came on but then the screen went blank. Every time we turn on the power it shows the input that the tv is on but the screen goes blank after 1 second. I pluged the cable directly and I get channel 2 picture and sound for 1 second then the screen goes blank but the sound continues. Any ideas?

If I shine a flashlight on the screen you can see a faint image on the screen.

I had this problem on my 42" Philips. Just got it yesterday and worked fine on the tv stand. As soon as I mounted the TV to the wall via wall mount system, I had the exact same issue you did. Figured it out today.

The wall mount was putting pressure against the center of the back of the tv (tv set had a slightly rounded back plate, and the mount was a flat plate). As soon as I put spacers (part of the wall mount hardware set) between the wall mount braket and the tv so there was no contact except at the mounting holes, the tv worked fine.

My theory is the pressure pushed the tv back plate against some board components which caused them to overheat (no air flow); or put pressure on internal connectors. I dont know.

Hope this helps, may not apply to your situation.

If this is a new set, return it for an exchange. This one sounds like an LCD set which uses a "back light". This back light is not working. This is a warranty repair or exchange.

After trying on my own, I went back into setting by scrolling along until a picto gram - with what appears to be a machine bolt is highlighted and then pressed SET - next the screen shows a bunch of chinese words (these are the different languages) then I scrolled down to the last one - until its highlighted, - this is the english one - press the set button on the side of the frame, this will bring you back to the english menu.
