I had the identical problem with my Sharp LC26SH10u. It turned out to be a burnt out high voltage transformer (there are eleven of them in my set; one for each backlight) on the inverter board. I bought a new inverter board on E-bay and it took care of that problem. No one on this forum seems to know how to reattach a ribbon cable on the LCD panel itself, though. Good luck with your set and be blessed!!!

Page 18 of the manual, you shouldn't need to do steps 2 or 3.

1.Connect the HDMI or DVI to HDMI connection cable from the output of the HDTV set top box or DVD player to the HDMI input as shown on the AVC Center below.
2.With DVI output, connect the cable from the AUDIO OUT R of the HDTV set top box or DVD player to the INPUT (AUDIO/R) jack.
3.With DVI output, connect the cable from the AUDIO OUT L of the HDTV set top box or DVD player to the INPUT (AUDIO/L) jack.
4.Press the INPUTS button, then select INPUTS 1 or 2 to view the program from the HDTV set top box or DVD player. The VIDEO OSD label disappears automatically after approximately four seconds.
5.Select ANT A or B from the INPUTS menu to return to the previous channel.
NOTES:1. Completely insert the connection cord plugs when connecting to rear panel jacks. The picture and sound that is played back will be abnormal if the connection is loose.
2. The HDMI input on INPUT 1 or 2 contains the copy protection system called High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP). HDCP is a cryptographic system that encrypts video signals when using HDMI connections to prevent ******* copying of video contents.
3.HDMI is not a "NETWORK" technology. It establishes a one-way point-to-point connection for delivery of uncompressed video to a display.
4.The connected digital output device controls the HDMI interface so proper set-up of device user settings determines final video appearance.

PLEASE WAIT message on screen

The only time I have seen this is when the set is in the "auto program" mode. Once completed, this should not show up again unless the set has been unplugged for a long period of time. Does this show up each time you turn on the set?

Have no picture just keeps say no signal

Check the input jacks in the rear. Each should have a unique label. Pick one input that has cables connected to it. Note the input name. Follow the cables back to the device connected - DVD, BluRay, Cable / Satellite box, etc. Turn on the TV, and select the same input you noted above. Turn on the device connected to it (DVD, BluRay, Cable / Satellite box, etc.). If this fails, try again with a different device or connect the cable / satellite box to the antenna input and select ANT.

Hello I have just got a Sony PFM 42VIE television. How do I connect it via cables to be able to pick up tv broadcasts vis a panasonic dvd recorder with built in freeview. Thankyou.

Hi, The simplest way to connect the dvd recorder to television will be via the coaxial connections(the cables with the screw on ends)- ( on dvd recorder one will say in from ant./cable the other will say out to tv ) this should enable you to change your tv's channel with your dvd recorder which is what you're after I assume. The best connection will be with the dvd recorders HDMI output or component video out, keep in mind they may only work for dvd viewing and not with tv channels, also hdmi ouput has audio built in-with component video you will need to connect dvds L/R stereo output to the audio input for component video ( these connectors are marked red,green and blue.) the stereo input will be red and white.Thanks and I hope this was helpful, good luck Prodzilla

Ah5902291a how to switch to tv to dvd

Do you mean you want to change your input to the DVD input to watch a DVD player instead of television?

Use your remote or television buttons and press "input" it will either scroll through the different inputs or you will get a menu to look through the inputs. If your DVD is connected with an HDMI cable then you will want to stay in the choices for HDMI inputs. If you have it connected with RCA cables, component or something else like that, then make sure you pick the corresponding input. Make sure your DVD is turned on so you can slowly scroll through the different inputs and wait for a signal to show up if you do not know which input you are connected to.

I purchased a new sony 40 inch flat screen t.v. I

Plug it into the RF input. It should be marked as ANT (antenna), Cable, or ANT/CABLE. Do a Auto Program in the Menu and you should get channels there is a cable or antenna source.
