Question about Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

LCDTV - Picture problem

The picture on my Sharp Aquos 46"; lcd has a bunch of lines on it. On the HD channels it looks like the picture is behind a screen of lines, on the non-HD channels the lines are colored a thousand times bigger.

Nothing happened, I was watching and the lines just appeared. It is connected from a HDTV/DVR cable box via hdmi and there is a upconverter DVD player connected via component cables.

Help, is the tv a goner, it is less than a year old! thanks.

    My sharp lcd tv is about 14 mons old. This morning when I turned it on the picture looks like it has a screen over it ( like a window screen) I cannot raise the tv volume, only the cable volume.

Do the lines only appear on the Cable box input? It maybe be a problem with your cable. Try to isolate the problem.

Do you see the lines on all sources such as your DVD player as well? If you press the MENU button on the Sharp remote, do the lines go through the menu as well? If yes, it is most likely a TV problem.

A bunch of lines sounds like it is most likely a problem with the connection with the LVDS cable, if not that, then a defective main board.

There isn't really much you can do about it now.
Since the TV is less than a year old, I suggest calling Sharp to locate a local authorized service center.

Have tv plugged in on hdmi cable but picture only showing in 480i how do i change to 1080p


You need to verify that you have hd service with your tv provider first. Then, you need to find out which of your channels are being broadcasted in HD because not all of them will be in HD. HD cable and satellite is not capable of broadcasting in true 1080p. Some of them have on demand services that stream 1080p movies, but thats about it. Channels can only go up to 1080i(which is still beautiful hd). Make sure your HDMI cable is version 1.3 and you should be good...good luck 2u

What kind of connections are you using?

If component (red, green, blue) double check to make sure they are seated properly. I'm thinking it sounds like the blue one got loose.

Size of screen


If you have black panel os sides the picture is not HD. Not allways the HD broadcasting have HD shows. The advertising for example is not HD. Check the picture size in the tv to be "allonged" and play with the screen size with your cable box remote. Usually is # button.
From what I know LC42D62U has no TV Guide feature.
