This is the statistical order of the possible cause of an LCD screen going black:
The backplane lamps, and or the backplane power supply is also failing. Other caused can be from the main power supply, or the LCD panel matrix drivers, or the processor.

When you bring the TV in for service to the factory service rep, they will swap out the boards to zero in on the faulty board.

This type of set is mainly service by board swap, and factory re-alignment procedures when necessary.

Why does the screen shut down after 1 sec while sound continues

It sounds like bad luck to me. You cannot change any settings on a TV by connecting a computer to it. In theory you can damage any monitor by setting the screen resolution of the computer higher than the monitors maximum res. The Sharp 26" has a resolution of 1366 x 768 (1080i) so (again in theory and I have never seen it happen) if you set the output to 1920 x 1024 (HD - 1080p) it can kill the screen. Perhaps this is what has happened. You will need to take it to a Sharp service centre.

Does this aerial work with other televisions?

Has the Sharp worked on this aerial recently?

If the aerial works with other televisions, and the Sharp has worked on the aerial recently, it sounds as though the tuner stage has stopped working, though it could always be a digital decoder (if fitted).

Clicking Menu, SetUp, Reset will reset the television and take it out of demonstration mode. You may have to re-program your channels & labels however, but you will get out of demonstration mode.

Did you want to download this video? If you did, you can use some program to help you to extract youtube video you like, and then export them to your TV. I often do it, so that I can watch online TV shows on my TV.

Colored shadows - borders on a clear picture


Convergence problems are usually caused by a diode on the convergence board. These little critters have a tendency to short out and cause the convergence to do strange things.

Obviously, this is not a job for the home owner because few of you know electronics. So, call in the technician to make the troubleshooting of the circuit. The diode costs .98 dollar. The technician will cost you about 250dollar. Don't ask me to explain it.
That's the way it is today.

Hope this helps out......

Picture keeps going out. we can hear the sound, but can't see anything on the screen.

The backlight inverter board may be going out, or the power supply for the inverter board may be going out, it may get worst and causes more damages.
