Question about Sharp Aquos LC-32D40U Television

2 Answers

Same issue I have had my tv for roughly 11 months now and it has started losing picture randomly. I have read all that i could find on the internet and your repair recommendations sound the best. I have very loud speakers with heavy bass in close proximity to the tv. Could this be a reason for the inverter board coming lose? Did you have a similar situation? Also, if i attempt to disassemble the set do you think you could instruct me on locating and removing the lose part? Thanks

    Same problem with my LC-32D4OU. The freakin picture randomly goes out. I'll wait a few minutes and most of the time it comes back on. However, it's losing the picture more frequently.

Yes, I had this problem too. Finally got it fixed. Apparently there is a Sharp "Bulletin" about this problem. And you're going to laugh when I say it has to do with a handful of washerless screws. I had a tech come by, (after 2 previous failed repair attempts) who finally knew what the problem was. He ordered the screws (have self-locking washers) and came back a week later. He replaced the screws onsite, and it's been fine ever since. I don't have the work order on me, but I'll try to come back tonight and put in the name of the part that needs the screws, and the part # for the screws. But saying "Bulletin" should be enough .. any decent tech should be able to look it up.

LG LCD Power Cycling issue


I was having the same issue and found a solution for my particular problem, so I came back here to share it with you in case it works for you, too.

My LG 32LD550 started turning off at random, then more and more frequently to the point where it just constantly turned off and on, off and on. At first it seemed to happen only when there was an HD signal (HDMI, HD TV broadcast, etc.), then it started doing it no matter what. But I noticed it also happened whenever I used the side buttons on the TV. If you're having that issue, here's what I suggest:

Remove the back panel (13 screws--11 around the perimeter, one in the center, and one on the inputs panel).
Locate the small white plug connected to the side buttons panel, and unplug it.

Sure, you won't be able to use the buttons on the TV (so don't lose your remote), but if it works, you just saved yourself a couple hundred bucks. It's worth a shot!
Here's the video I found on YouTube that tipped me off:

For me, the capacitors were fine. I just had a faulty control panel. Good luck!

Screen black - Suddenly went black screen with no picture, no sound and no menu access. Power light is on. Only 18 months old. Have tried unplugging for 1 hour to reset to no avail. Any ideas?


I had issues start around 15 months - the unit would freeze up, or change channels spontaneously, or turn on and off at random. So far we've not any permanent solutions. The best we've got is to lock the control panel out (which didn't keep it from turning on and off) after which we tried resetting to factory defaults. I've emailed the company and am awaiting a reply.

Something like you describe sounds like a fuse issue or something else after the power supply.

My Westinghouse LTV-27w6-HD picture is scrambled periodically


Before you bother to read the text below, you might be better served looking at this thread:
Westinghouse troubles
If you aren't nauseated yet, continue with my original reply:
If the picture seems 'pixelated,' broken up into randomly sized and placed blocks, then it is losing synchronization with the digital signal coming in. This is certainly repairable and may be due to lousy assembly quality rather than a failed part. Most of our modern sets are assembled by robots but there is a degree of manual soldering still to be done and this can result in 'cold' solder joints that can fracture and fail due to heating and cooling of the innards of a set.
Unfortunately, unless you have a semi-retired TV service man in your neighborhood who is already financially independent, the labor costs could run fairly high for this kind of service since it requires methodical searching of the circuitry and could eat up some time.

LG 37 inch Flat Panel Loses picture


Take a camcorder and capture it, that should be enough proof that it's failing often enough to be repair right. When the picture goes out, can you see it dimly if you take a flash light to the screen? It might be a bad inverter.
