    Does it not get a signal of any sort? NO What about from DVDs, do you have a DVD player attached, does that work? YES and NO Does not work just fine with regular TV signal? I accidentally hit JUST ONE button (don't remember which one, but this happens all the time!

    What do you mean exactly when you say "failed to receive broadcast"? Does it not get a signal of any sort? What about from DVDs, do you have a DVD player attached, does that work? Did it used to work just fine with regular TV signal?

    Thanks, let me know more and I can definitely help!

    Oh I missed the E202 part, ok that usually means it just tuned to a channel that it doesn't know how to receive. Try navigating to another channel manually, input channel 32 for example, does it attempt to go to that channel? Are you using a cable box / satellite box or plugged directly into the wall?

    Thanks

    Yes I am still here, the reply isn't instant. You need to either navigate to a new channel with your cable box remote, if it will not let you and just stays at that -- screen you will need to just RESET your cable box. The easiest way to do that is to just unplug the cable box from the power source, then replug it in. This should get it back to a recognized channel, currently it is stuck on that .5 channel, and that is the problem. Just reset your cable box and you should be able to get all your channels back.

    It sounds like you are on the wrong input on your TV, try hitting the INPUT or SOURCE button (it will have one or the other) on the TV remote... it should take you back to the TV input eventually, go through the inputs until you see TV...

    Make sure you use the actual TV remote, the remote that came with the Sharp TV, and are hitting INPUT or SOURCE.

    Thanks

That means the channel is active but but there is a problem with the delivery by the broadcaster, not a defective TV.

Turned on set....screen all black except a dark blue rectangle in center which reads:Failed to receive broadcast [E202]


That message is presented when a selected digital channel is too weak to decode. Let us hope that something was accidentally changed:

Is the channel legitimate?
Is the antenna/cable still connected (to the Digital input)?
Go into menu - setup - channel setup. Is the selection of either cable or air channels correct for your situation?
Use menu - setup - Antenna Setup-DIGITAL to examine the signal strength. Is there nothing at all, or is it just a question of strength?

Odds favor a change in channel setup that you would not have made intentionally, or a simple physical problem (input cable, etc.). Start from scratch, and check the settings and connections you originally made. Hopefully it will be simple and cheap!

Sharp Aquos LC-52D64U LCD-52 wdscrn tht won't scan in digital...


Seeing that you have a superior brand and not getting channels is a bummer. It may have to do with the setting, make sure you're set to cable rather antenna and then do a rescan. Btw, often times channels from an over the antenna is much clearer than from cable because cable tv has to compress the signal. If you're high in the air like the top floor of a building a cheap $10 will pull in great free digital channels. It helps to experiment and read the troubleshooting guide in your manual.

37 inch Sharp Aquos. "Failed to receive Broadcast [E202]"


This is basically a message for no signal on the tv, make sure the tv itself is on the correct input for the type of cable used. The inputs are labled by numbers on the back of the tv. The input can be changed by the button on the side panel of the tv.
