It seems that the problem is the monitor is detecting that the menu button is continually being pressed or the switch is shorted. Try pressing the menu button a few times to see if you can make this stop. Otherwise, the monitor needs to be repaired. Hope this helps.

My LC 42SB454 Sharp liquid crystal TV continually scrolls through the input menu?


Fault to its main board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ . In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary

When i turn my SHARPtv (20VW70M) on there is a caption that says TV lock,any buttons on the remote doesn't seem to work.


hi,
You have to reset the tv. For that do the following. After resetting you have to auto tune your tv, because it will go to factory default setting.

1. Press the Menu button on the TV.
2. 'INPUT SECRET No.' should appear.
3. Press and hold both VOL (+) and CH DOWN on the TV set simultaneously until the message 'INPUT SECRET NO' disappears.
4. The V chip settings should be disabled now and the Parental controls menu should be presented, 'disable' Status if need be
.
ok

I took my Sony Wega KV32FS120 off my digital box and put it in a different room straight on the cable (without the box) I have picture, but when I start the TV I have sound when the picture kicks in the...


I have found that the input menu can cause a lot of problems. For example, if your cable box input setting was set to high def with a component (not a coposite cord) then that particular input is looking for two lines of audio into them--so a total of five rca type plugs.
If you have now only got the cable in--the input is looking for external audio.

Try messing around with the input menus . . . It took me weeks to figure some of it out and I'm a tech,

My 52" Toshiba DLP just dropped an HDMI connection... There are two connectors on the back, both have worked fine until just now when one disappeared from the inputs menu on the screen.


Hi,
I'm not sure about your tv model as question post shows it is Toshiba 52HM84 that has one HDMI input at rear and you said 3 HDMI inputs in your tv.
Please unplug tv from wall socket for minute or so to get it reset, replug back in, turn it On and check its HDMI inputs appear or not.
Also check for Reset option in Menu for factory default settings that can also help you to get back disappeared HDMI inputs.
If all that does not solve the issue then it seems hardware problem with HDMI circuit board and tv repairman is needed for visual check to get it fix.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

Without the code, you must get an original remote and press the "QV" and the "9" buttons together to unlock the TV.
