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

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.

Horizontal lines showing behind tv menu


Hello,
Normally the menu is generated in the LCD Control Unit. If your menu looks good, but the defect is behind the menu, I would suspect the Main PCB. Good luck to you. Part# is DUNTKD934FM01-V1.

Damaged the LCD - Sharp 46 in. LCD Full HD Television, AQUOS®


Yes it is possible to replace the panel. I would suspect that it is cost prohibitive however. I am willing to state that the cost of the panel will be close to if not more than the cost to replace the TV.

Sorry about the bad news.

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.
