Question about Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Hi! I have a Sharp LC-37D7U and my cable company just started switching to digital at the rate of 20 or so channels per month. I was able to receive analog cable or digital cable through my analog cable receptacle on the TV, but only one or the other. So I put a signal splitter on the cable coming into the house and ran one line to each input and then it worked perfectly. I turned off the set and went to bed. Today I get no digital signal, only the signals from the remaining analog channels. Do I reset the system as with the 42D62U? I haven't a clue! Thanks much, Lowtech

    Thanks! I will ask them. Unfortunately the people I talk to at their site are not technical in the sense that they understand--vs memorized instructions. They are sending a signal that is partly analog and partly digital, apparently. eventually they will go all digital, over time. The provider is WOW (Wide Open West). Here is a URL to their digital change-over page:

    It is Saturday night. I will get back to you when things are squared away.

    Best,

    Hello!

    The WOW techs were out. It is not the TV. It is the signal, just as you said. The signal is being converted, 20 channels at a time, over three months, from analog to digital. I now have 52 analog and 20 digital channels. I am not going to subscribe to their digital service so getting a digital signal benefits me not at all.

    They put in their own higher quality signal splitter. They said mine was losing 10 db(I can 't see any difference.) They ran one cable to their set top box (a dinky thing the size of two packs of cigarettes) and from there to the analog in on the Sharp. The other cable from the set top box they ran to my VCR so I could watch and record analog there. I have to use their crummy remote with 12 buttons (more, actually) until the digital transition is complete. Then, I suppose, I can chuck their box.

    I don't know what they did or why my simple split stopped working, but it all works now.

    Thanks for your assistance. Could we leave this ticket open for awhile in case the problem reoccurs?

    Thanks,

    Lowtech

No it's not your TV set maybe you're cable company is not feeding the digital signal or having technical adjustment/problem you can inquire from them about the digital signal they are providing...and let me know it so we can proceed to other steps..

Sharp Aquos LC 32G4U not receiving any channels-


Most locations are real hard to get local stations using indoor antennas. If you are in a location where you do not have cable, I would try either a outside antenna on the roof or go with Direct TV Dish / Dish Network system.
I hope this helps,

Limited cable channels


There isn't a software upgrade available for your TV yet. So, the TV has the latest software right now.

I would try making the TV search for more channels.
Press Menu on the remote,
go to SETUP,
then go to CH SETUP,
then make sure the AIR/CABLE option is on CABLE,
then go to CH SEARCH and select " Analog & Digital Search Start ".
The new channels should show up after the scan is done.
If this doesn't work, the TV may need some type of new converter/cable box from the cable company.

If you need a copy of your manual, you can go here:

Turned on set....screen all black except a dark blue rectangle in center which reads:Failed to receive broadcast [E202]


That message is presented when a selected digital channel is too weak to decode. Let us hope that something was accidentally changed:

Is the channel legitimate?
Is the antenna/cable still connected (to the Digital input)?
Go into menu - setup - channel setup. Is the selection of either cable or air channels correct for your situation?
Use menu - setup - Antenna Setup-DIGITAL to examine the signal strength. Is there nothing at all, or is it just a question of strength?

Odds favor a change in channel setup that you would not have made intentionally, or a simple physical problem (input cable, etc.). Start from scratch, and check the settings and connections you originally made. Hopefully it will be simple and cheap!

Sharp Aquos LC-52D64U LCD-52 wdscrn tht won't scan in digital...


Seeing that you have a superior brand and not getting channels is a bummer. It may have to do with the setting, make sure you're set to cable rather antenna and then do a rescan. Btw, often times channels from an over the antenna is much clearer than from cable because cable tv has to compress the signal. If you're high in the air like the top floor of a building a cheap $10 will pull in great free digital channels. It helps to experiment and read the troubleshooting guide in your manual.

Sounds like the signal is probably too strong. The TV is not the problem.

Tv shutting off


How many times per second does the POWER led blink? (dont worry about the OPC).

1x per second (constant, steady blink) = bad inverter/lamps
2x per second = bad power supply
3x per second = bad main board

You can buy the parts online and fix if yourself!!
