Question about Sharp LC-32SB24U 32 in. LCD TV

2 Answers

I am having trouble with controlling my Sharp 32" LCD TV. The remote only works sporatically. It's driving us crazy. We have had the cable repairman out and he has tried other remotes and we have tried new batteries. We are thinking it is the sensor on the tv. Can this be fixed? If so, who does this? Thank you.

    Hi -

    Thank you for your help. Is there a way we can test the sensor ourselves? Thanks, Judy

    Can you also tell me why this works sometimes and not others? Is it a temperature problem in the tv or the room? Also why does the sound and the power on the tv now work , but not changing the channels? Thanks.

Hello!
you can use your mobile phone's camera to check if the ir sensor of your tv is working normally.
Use your phone or your digital camera and point it to the ir sensor. Watch if the led indicator lamp is steady lit red. If blurred then the IR sensor is already worn. You can purchase the IR sensor board online and have it replace by yourself.

Please post back the exact model number of your Sharp LCD. If possible, if you can view the numbers in the IR sensor board of your tv. Of course you will need to remove the cover of your tv to view this information.

When u turn the TV off it keeps coming back on by itself


Ours does the same thing except that it will turn on spontaneously at any hour of the day or night randomly. I called Sharp tech support and they rebooted the tv and the remote but this did no good. I sprayed compressed air into the power switch on the top of the tv, but this did not help either. Sorry I have no answer. Since it is in the bedroom this was driving us crazy, so I junked the tv and replaced it with a Sceptre 32 LCD HD TV/DV combo from Walmart.com for less than $200. Probably taking the tv to a repair center would cost almost as much.

If you try a universal remote, such as from cable company or satellite provider and it still does not work with remote, you need an IR receiver module #DUNTKE264FM02 for your tv. this can be found at encompassparts.com and retails for about $22.00

I had the same issue with my Sharp Aquos 52 inch LCD TV. I called Sharp. The tech had me unplug my TV, take the batteries out of the remote (TV remote not cable) and press all buttons on the remote (including the buttons under the flip top at the bottom of the remote). I did this, put the batteries back in and plugged in the tv and everything worked. I had gone 4 months having to use the surround sound for volume and turning the TV on and off by hand. This took 2 minutes to fix.

Programming the Acquos Remote


There is a code out there to try.  The code would be 47.  Just follow the steps in your manual on how to program this box and you should be able to go from there. Can't garantee that it will work as that code came out with the newer tv but it should work.

TV is under warranty. Get a tech to look at it. It could require a new IR sensor, a firmware upgrade or a system reset that only a tech can do called an Industry Initialization that is in the service mode only
