Hi,

Initially, have you tried a full hard reset? If not, pls unplug from the mains. Most current devices would reset and revert back to factory default settings (assuming no internal hardware fault) when unplugged for a considerable period of time (fa couple of hours at least or preferably overnight).

Alternately, pls check if you have "Zoom" enabled.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My picture fills the whole screen to the point people look distorted


Look on your TV remote. Look for a button that reads "Aspect". While watching TV push the Aspect button until the picture is they way you want it.

People faces and a lot of other items on the screen are not natural looking, kind of like a manaquin. Stripes are distorted. It is brand new and I was wondering if the problem is the tv or something else....


On this television you would need to remove the Comcast digital cable box. This tv does not need it. Then you will press the menu button and choose either the channel or the setup category. You will then need to locate the auto ch memory or ch setup subcategory. Then you will select it by pressing enter after scroling down to it. Next you will scroll down to automatic search or ch search and press enter. Select search start for just digital channels and press enter. It may direct you to select yes and then enter. After the television is done searching the 135 channels it will come back to channel 2.1 or the lowest channel you receive. You can then go through your channels with the ch button on your Sharp remote control. The picture can further be adjusted with the av mode button on your remote if you press it repeatedly if you remote control has one.

Hard to get started when powering up to watch.


definitely, something wrong with it. TV shouldn't take more then a few seconds to start, I suggest, while it still under warranty, give Sharp a call to get it fixed.

Only the red light comes on


Whats up Wade?

This is DVD MIKE with Perfectimagess.Try this first .Unplug the TV for a while and press the On/Off button which is supposed to perform a "reset".After that, plug the TV back in. It should come on and the Timer light off. The picture and colors might be distorted, but pressing the Perfect Focus button on the remote control resolves this right away.

The problems is a black picture or the TV won't turn on. The Timer light stays lit even though no Timer has ever been set. The colors converge and the picture is pinched. I don't think all of the expensive repairs are necessary, My TV did go out after a week of non-use while out of town (I was out of town, not the TV). I don't know. I'll post more if I learn more. I hope this helps Wade,

Vacuum the dust off of the circuit boards and inside the cavity. TAKE CLOSE UP PICTURES OF THE CONNECTORS BEFORE DISCONNECTING FROM THE CIRCUIT BOARDS. (IF YOU HAVE TO.) TAKE OUT CIRCUIT BOARD MOUNTING SCREWS. AND REMOVE THE BOARDS.

VACUUM THE DUST. LOOK- SMELL AND CLEAN THE GROUNDS, AND CAREFULLY CLEAN THE BOARDS. ASSEMBLE. DOUBLE CHECK CONNECTIONS WITH PHOTOS,
AND PLUG IN, TURN ON AND HOPEFULLY ITS ALL GOOD.

WADE WORK WITH ONE HAND AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE SON!!

TV is stuck in expanded picture mode & won't return to normal


seems to me as a Sony TV. The sony tv has this feature ready in the menu. you can do zoom out ,standard etc,
But the real problem comes when the tv is turn off and then you get back to turn on the tv (lets say next day)and you find the same big heads.
what you have to do is going to the menu same thing but this time look for an option is called picture size default. This option make learn the memory what size you want custom when tv is turn on.This function is in the same page as the picture size page (refer to the user's manual) but has to be the default mode where you want the change.
The problem with sizes now days is some shows fit perfect some others not. and besides that the cable box has those features too(change size of the screen)

What i do in this sony tv to start first is keeping it in the standard size in the tv menu and i defaulted too.

when some size adjustment is needed i do it in the cable box remote control .Once again this example i do it in SONY tv, Maybe you have to post the problem again if the tv is different brand.
