Unless you have noticed a decrease in picture quality, I would not worry. LCDs do not need routine adjustments. Best Buy may have fibbed a little. If your picture has declined, then you have an electronic parts failure and I would pursue a service call for that.

1080p lcd hdtv 50+ inch. picture getting darker

If no settings have been changed it means your backlight is dimming. This is a common issue with LCD TV's however it usually doesn't happen this soon. The best thing to slow down the dimming process is to lower your contrast settings, however what you really should do is calibrate your television either professionally or by using a calibration DVD or Blu-Ray with color filters.

This is a brand new TV. The first 100 hours it shuts down and a Service Tech will but a new chip set in. This is how it is calibrated by Samsung. Don't worry, the new chip set is a lot better. Let me know if you just bought this TV? If it has already been calibrated, I'll troubleshoot it for you.

Sharp Aquos LC-42D43U LCD TV

Well, the good thing you got a new TV out of it.
The best and easiest thing to do is sell it on your local Craigslist.
The parts inside the TV can be used to repair other TVs that have no damage to the screens. I would say $100 for the whole thing would be fair price for all the parts inside.
If nobody wants to buy it on Craigslist, go to and contact them if they want to buy the TV from you. They're all about recycling parts.

Do I need an HDTV converter box

If you are picking up only analog channels, you will need a converter box. You can pick a converter box up for $49 or $59 dollars at walmart or target. Best Buy is way overcharging if they are selling them at $100.

Please pack the Sharp back into your car & get the money back. One thing I love about this website is how folks will talk about the historic/chronic problems of things. Don't even worry about fixing it. Run, don't walk, back to where you purchased it. Next, consult a "Consumer's Report" type of ezine & find a better model!!

It is always irritating when a TV stops working. Most likely it is a board failure. The service tech should be able to service this by swapping out the failed board(s).
