When you see the "K," hit channel down and volume down on the tv. Hit the down arrow key once. You should see some the says factory init. Use the channel up and down to select "Factory Init" and hit the right key to change to yes and hit ok. Once it turns green, unplug set for 30 seconds and plug back in.

post back here if I was too vague or if you get confused and I'll write up a more easier one.

    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.

Plugged in a new cpu and the background is pink. I have tried to solve with appearances and no luck. I have another flat panel and plugged it in and get the same pink background. I think I am in a *****...

I think youa are using a VGA Connector, check if there is any bent pins. Reseat the VGA Cable once or try out with a diffrent cable. If that also does not work, then its a issue with the monitor.

Thanks and Regards

Screen returned from supplier background bright pink, how do I change to white background.

To check if the video card or the Sharp LCD monitor is faulty, connect a different monitor to the computer. If this monitor displays a normal image then the video card is OK and the Sharp LCD monitor's back-light is faulty. Send it back to the supplier to have it fixed (they should not have reurned it to you in this condition).
If the other monitor also displays a bright pink background then the video card is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Small white hole on LCD screen

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you have what is called a "dead" pixel. Only repair would be to replace the LCD. I would like to think you would not spend $1400 to fix this problem.
