This set is likely due for a digital upgrade. Feb. 8, 2009 is the last date tha any analog broadcast transmission. some kind of receiver [digital conversion , cable or satelite box] will be required. some sets can take analog cable & then be OK.

I'm not sure that it is the speakers that have gone bad.

Possible workaround: any audio out jacks on this set?

Check the input voltage to IC. If it is absent, the IC won't work. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Pull up older posts.

have you been check the speaker if worn out. if ok you can hooked up a powered pc speaker at the audio output jack of the tv . now if you can get sound there the cause it could be bad amplifier circuit. but if you can not get sound there the cause would be bad sound processor in the main board.

I have a sharp tv with the volume at its highest but i can't hear anything


Hello
Check its speaker first. If voice coil of the speaker or tis cone paper has damaged, speaker will produce a dull low sound output. If the speaker is found OK, check the audio output section of the unit. This section circuits can be located inside the TV circuit board. look for any loose or bad soldering terminals at the audio output IC. It is best to resolder all the suspected solder points by applying a little more solder, withut making any solder bridge short in between adjecent solder terminals. If this also does not help you, replace the audio output IC. It is damaged. OK.

Tv went black no sound either. TV only five years old,is there anything i can do? Thanks James


Cannot offer solution but my mine has also gone bad.  At first a black shadow appeared on the left side of the screen.  Took it to the authorized service center.  they kept it a few days, said nothing could be done.  Used it anyway for the next 5 years when suddenly it went black (or sometimes blue) after working perfectly for the first 5 minutes. A sharp rap next to the right speaker fixed it a few times, but no more.  Good luck.

Hi ibrahl,

I too have the same model and vintage and have been experiencing low signal problems for quiet some time now. It only became apparent when we hooked up the ps3 playTV unit and the digital channels we were having problems with on the Aquos was broadcasting fine. Both devices use the same antenna connection so its not an aerial issue.
I tried reset back to factory settings and reloaded the channels via auto but now those digital channels I had problems no longer appear on our channel list so they're gone for now. I was wondering the same thing about firmware updates but havent found anything on the Sharp website. Found this video but this model uses USB for updates">

No Picture with sound


sounds like you have a bad panel. This ussually happens when a backlight lamp has gone bad and the inverter board senses this and sends a signal to turn the backlight off.

Sound problems


Make sure it is not a problem with the DTV reciever first by connecting up another smaller TV set to that reciver. if it is the TV set for sure, a cheap fix would be to run the audio outputs of the DTV reciever to a small stereo or a powered speaker. Good Luck
