SHARP 37HV6U No picture until long warmup

I have had this set for three years and it's been terrific, no problems.

Recently, however, when the set is turned on, the green light lights up, the separate AVC box is on, but no picture until 5-10 minutes go by. Nothing will show up on the screen, menu, what inputs are available, etc. until it "warms up".

Connected to Comcast cable box, 5.1 surround receiver and these work well. All channels and sound come through cleanly on the external speakers, so it's something with the TV.

Any ideas? Thanks for your help.

Alas, it sounds like something could be quite wrong, or it could be as simple as needing a reset. Unplug the unit, wait a minute then replug it and see what happens.

Hi I have a sharp 27H S60, has worked fine for many years. Now, I get fine sound but no picture. When it is first turned on I get a thick white line in the center of the screen for a second, then it is...


The problem is a vertical deflection issue, it means the picture from top to bottom has collapsed. The set will require two or three capacitors and an ic and it is quite fixable.

My tv will work fine for say 1 minute then keeps flashing green and shuts off i have looked up the code it says its the D borad thats gone bad is there a wasy i can self fix it.


The "D board" is the flyback transformer, but if it was bad, you would have no picture at all. Here is a proven method to get it to work (for a while....)

The adjustment method is to put the set on a video input with nothing conected
to that input. Turn the screen control up slowly until those fine lines appear
and then down until they just disappear. Do this with all three colors. You
might need to turn one of them down a little initially if the set won't stay on
long enough to get to adjustments. You cannot do the adjustment on a TV station
or on live video input. If the adjustments are too high, the set will turn
bright and shutdown. If they are too low you will never get a picture at
all.

You would want to touchup the adjustments after a warmup of a few
hours, then recheck the next day when cold.

If the adjustments are
successfull and the set stays on but the color reproduction is very poor then
one of the tubes is probably bad.

If you are lucky and everything turns
out OK, you will probably need to do it every year or so.

Sharp Microwave Lights Up, But Won't Rotate or Cook


Hi. I would suggest checking out the door switches. There are usually 3. If one of those has failed then the microwave won't operate because of safety reasons. Best to replace all three. If the display on the unit is still fully operational I'd say go for the repair.

56" rear projection won't turn on


the three error code indicates that the Convergence ICs have failed, You will need to replace both STK392-110 ICs and possibly a couple of the 2.2 ohm 2watt resistors. You can get replacement ICs and resistors at the following link and they provide free installation instructions with pictures so you can do the repair yourself.

Advent HT2751A display no good until after 1-2 hour warmup - maybe


After 3 years, I finally decided to open up the TV and do some troubleshooting. Found out the problem, It was a blown capacitor Location C554 Capacitor value is 2200uF 16V - costs about a dollar to replace yourself and the TV works brand new.

Blinking picture until warmup


On Sony TV's they monitor the current drain on all three electron guns Red Green and Blue. Until all are somewhat equal it will keep the CRT blank. As the set ages it means that it might flash a few times until the cathodes are good and warmed up.
