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