    We have a Sharp Aquos LC46D62U, it is 13 months old (one month out of warranty). We have blinkings stripes and bands throughout the screen regardless of the input (cable, DVD, or just plugged into to power). Sharp will do nothing for us, and has been a huge waste of our time. Anyone else with similiar problems? HELP?

I've seen this problem before and if caught early (usually only a few pixels), its fixable. But if it has already started forming a "line" it might be too late and you might have a defective LCD panel. Most of the time, doing the factory initialization helps with this problem.

(WARNING: THIS GIVES YOU ACCESS TO THE SERVICE MENU. DO NOT ADJUST ANYTHING IN THE SERVICE MENU OTHER THAN WHAT I PROVIDE YOU IN THESE INSTRUCTIONS. IF YOU DECIDED TO ADJUST ANYTHING OTHER THAN WHAT I PROVIDE YOU IN THESE INSTRUCTIONS, I WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE IF ANYTHING WRONG HAPPENS TO YOUR TV.)

  1. unplug tv
  2. press and hold at the same time “Vol –“ and “input” button on the TV set.
  3. while holding those buttons, plug the tv back in
  4. the tv should turn on by itself, keep holding the buttons until the letter “K” appears. Then let go
  5. then at the same time press “Vol –“ and “Ch. Down”, you should see the service menu appear (if it does not appear, try pressing the two buttons again, it needs to be exactly at the same time)
  6. Then use the “Ch. Down” button to navigate down the service menu until you see “Industry Init” (NOT Industry Init +cause)
  7. Then press “Vol +” to toggle it to “ON”
  8. Then “/////////////////” should appear.
  9. when the screen turns GREEN, unplug the TV. Wait about 30 seconds, then plug the TV back in.
  10. Then continue on with the initial setup again.

Is there a step missing in the above directions? I followed them and at step 7, toggled the Industry Init to on, but then nothing happens.

Thin blue line


I am a Sharp Servicing Technician. You posted this before. Ive got the same model TV as you do LC46D62U. I think the line you are experiencing is simply the broadcast. I notice it on some HD shows that broadcast the side bars. (Always on the Ellen Degeneres Show). Ive taken some picture.

1) Here's the line on the left that i experience

2) Later on in the broadcast, it goes away.

One way to check if its a TV problem or not. When the line shows up again, hit the MENU button on the remote. If the line appears to be "behind" the menu, then it is simply the broadcast.

If the line appears to be "on top" of the menu or shows right through the menu, then it is a TV problem.

Im thinking the reason it takes hours for hte line to appear is because it only shows up on certain shows or certain HD broadcasts.

Line across screen


I have the same problem with my 42 in. The line started to show up randomly about 1 month after i got my tv. The line isn't a line of dead pixels since when i change the aspect ratio or the tv the line moves up or down. I called sharp about the problem and they said it had something to do with my computer but i don't think that can explain why the problem shows up on all my tv inputs.
