If you are still receiving good TV signals (though black & white) then chances are the booster is still OK.

Since your main concern is centered around the controls then it is likely that you have a fault somewhere in your logic section. Based likewise in your posting, all the controls work except some other functions are triggered. Since the issue is somewhat general then either the DA converter IC is at fault or its supply B+.

As bestdarngood have posted, knowing your make & model (or chassis #) wold be of gret help narrowing down the problem.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

The Tv needs to be serviced by a technician.Probably there is a problem with the circuits inside.

Few troubleshooting steps you can try:

1)Do a hard reset by unpluging all the cords for 4hrs and then plug it back.
2)The whacking test is to just bang or smack the set with your hand on the back, side, top, etc., to see if there are loose connections or cold solder joints inside that are acting up. If so, the banging should knock them back to normal and the set should restore. You might have to use some creative banging and some have had to put a book or magazine under one corner to torque the chassis enough to get it to work reliably.

try covering up the remote sensor to test that theory and see if the volume button is on stuck.

Another thing you can try:

1) Take off the base and knock it gently to see about possible loose connections. 2) Remove the backcover of the TV and use pressurized gas to clean dust of the inner workings. 3) Leave it unplugged overnight to get the "hard reset."

It sounds like the main board is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced. Depending on the age of the tv, you may just want to replace it. Please post the make and model to help us better assist you.

Hi Redd, You might have better luck posting this under Sharp TVs: The black lines at the top of the screen are usually an indication of a problem with the vertical output section. It's often bad electrolytic capacitors, the vertical IC, or both. That's apparently not a US model, so it will be hard to find the values but you could contact Sharp Philippines: SHARP (PHILS.)

Cannot open the door Dacor Model DMO24S

You will need to remove the outer wrapper, then separate the control panel from the microwave by removing the screw and then lifting the panel up and away. If you disconnect any wires, be sure to mark them, make a diagram or take photos first so you get them all back exactly where they were. The attached photo shows the area where two locking tabs are located. They must be gently pushed in to allow the door open button and spring to be removed. The door open button is part # 86778 (if your oven is black or stainless, part # 86778 if your color is arctic) and it can be obtained from a Dacor distributor such as This should be the same as a Sharp model R330BK (black model) and you can order that door open button from Tritronics. It is part # JBTN-B088WRF0 and they are at
