Problem with my Aquos lc32d40u

I bought the Sharp Aquos LC32D40U, the problem i'm having is while watching TV the picture goes out. I can still hear what i was watching and i can see movement on the screen, but there is no picture. it goes out when it wants, it could stay two days and not cut off, or its cutting off every 15 minutes. if i turn the tv off and wait a few minutes it come back on, but then go right back off. I had a technician come out, but of course the tv doesnt cut off when he's here. its becoming very frustrating....can you help me?

    Same problem with my LC-42D62U.

  • mashidi Oct 19, 2008

    Same issue just started to happen yesterday. Screen image suddenly went black while sound continues. When re-powered the screen shows for a second, then flicks off again. Just on 24 months now since new. Hope this can be fixed soon.

    Yes I have the same problem.No picture.My LC-32D40U TV was purchased in September 2006. I feel very fortunate that it lasted that long. Paid $1100 for two years. Hell that's only $45 a month. Anyone know what Action Rental charges per month. That might be the way to go. Looks like I got screwed by some Sharp talking salesman.

    Sometimes I have a picture, and then it blacks out. SOmetimes it will work just fine for a day or two. Sometimes it starts with colored vertical lines. I bought this set in 2006, and it started acting up just after the warranty expired.

    while the set is on the picture ges out suddenly.the sound stays.

Your inverter/lamps are bad. Those are only available with the LCD panel as an Assembly, and that is worth more than the TV.

Check cspacitors on power suppky board for bulging on top. The caps are the little barrel looking things. If the crossed tops are bulged up in the slightest or blown compketely, they heed to ge repkaced. Desolder and pull out, buy new matching ones snd solder in. Not as hard as it sounds, observe polarity of csps when you pull them, match stripe to outline on pcb.

How to fix Sharp LC32D40U tv screen after fallen two foot to a carpet floor

If the screen is cracked then it's expensive to replace the screen. You may do better to get a new TV. There are many places on the internet to get replacement screens. If you want to go that route then go to Sharp's website and download the service manual for your model TV. You'll have to disassemble the entire tv to get to the screen.

My Sharp LC32D40U went black yesterday, I can still hear the speakers but no image

I have the same model 3yrs old. Your problem is a loose contact on a circuit board. Unplug the tv and remove the back cover. Remove the circuit board on the opposite side of the input plug. Clean the mating surface of the circuit board and the mount, reinstall the circuit board and tighten the screws. This is where the lost contact is occuring. Reinstall the back cover. Thats it. good luck and happy watching.

Sounds like a power supply issue, very unusual for LC32D40U. Part number for the power supply: A3Y101E240.

HDTV picture staticky, cuts out

I suggest contacting Sharp directly. I just did and received absolutely nothing from them. But if others such as myself who have the exact same problem as you ( I own a LC32D40U just over 2 yrs old) contact then maybe something can get done.

I will certainly NEVER recommend a Sharp product to anyone and will as of this moment respond to every message out there letting everyone know exactly how bad Sharp's product are. I would recommend the Sony XBR series to anyone looking for an LCD television.
