Sharp Aquos LC-40C32U

Hi there everyone

i have the Sharp Aquos LC-40C32U and me and my wife we got it on ebay.

It was a great deal, in fact the tv was great, very good conditions and it was working great...

After a couple of weeks, we noticed that when we were going to turn the tv on, the picture appeared for 3 secs and then off (sound and commands to switch channels fully functionally even with the black screen). And so and so.. in the beginning, it was something about try to turn it on and off for 3 or 4 times, sometimes it used to go on and be ok for good... day by day, it's harder for it to keep the picture on... last day i had to try and try for more than 50 times, but no willing to stay on for good.

We already took the tv to a repair shop, the tech was really nice but he said that he doesn't know how to fix it. We searched on the internet and we saw that the same our problem it's like spread all over the owners with the same Sharp tv model and almost everyone calls it the BLACK SCREEN ON DEATH and there's no solution, a huge bug from Sharp.

We are really sorry if we have to dump this tv, it seemed that some part needs to be changed, not even the Tech was sure of which one and, of course, Sharp never answered our questions to try to find a solution.

I saw in some posts here, for the Sharp tv model LC-32D40U and the problem it's the same for my model, i saw something about changing some SCREWS.

Does anyone have this model and found this problem? And if it's so, has the problem been fixed? What the Tech did to fix it?

Thank you very much to everyone of you for the support! :)

    I have the same problem. The screen goes black on startup.

    Ocassionally it goes black after being on for a while. on my first set the main board was replaced. The set exhibited the same problem.

    A refurbished unit was sent to me by Sharp. After six months it exhibited the same black screen on startup

I have the same model TV that is 18 months old. The repairman wanted $365.00 to replace the inverter and update something on it. From what I have seen online, it is mainly just loose screws on the inverter. I called Sharp and they are paying for the repair on the TV

The demo mode apears every 30 minutes. I can't really stand it. How can I shut it doen for ever? Sharp aquos LED 40"


I'm not certain of the specific model number of your set, but this should be the same for all Sharp Aquos models.

First, navigate to TV input, and select menu
Next, enter setup and select, "ez setup"
In the ez setup menu, select "home", not "store", for television location.

This should turn off the demo mode and solve your issue.

Ok.... I got a new power supply board and the tv is still doing the same thing. (Sharp Aquos 37in LC-40C37U) So if it is not the power board then what could be wrong with it. I'm getting no power and only...


The pattern of the blinking is a code. If the power light is blinking by itself once per second or thereabouts it could be loose connection to Inverters, reload firmware, Inverter Unit or LCD Panel.

If my Sharp Aquos 37in LC-40C37U tv needs to be reset how would I do that? Not getting any power, only a green blinking light. The power supply board checked out ok.


Blinking light is an error code. Count the blinks before they repeat. Check your manual in the troubleshooting section. If you can't find it, contact a Sharp service center or try and get a service manual. Reset info is also in the user manual but you can't do it if your set doesn't power up. Are you sure about the power board?

How do i Adjust My 40 inch Sharp Aquos to 1080 p?


You do not adjust the resolution at the TV, the TV will adjust itself to display what you are feeding it. It works the same way as the computer monitor, which is done on the computer's video card to what ever you set it to.
