Question about Sharp 55R-WP4H 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

View timer is stuck on

My view timer has been stuck on and I am unable to receive a picture. I have unplugged the TV for hours at a time and even overnight and the TV set will not reset itself. When I turn on the TV it goes right to view timer mode and the red light is blinking. Does anyone have a solution to this problem I called Sharp and they were no help.

    I have exactly the same problem. I can unplug for days and when I turn the power back on, you hear "click, click, click..." then it goes to "view timer" and the light just flashes. While I appreciate the advice of "taking set to tech", this thing is the size of a buick so a house call is the only answer...you'd think there would be a "module" you could take out. Sharp? When their web site is working it's useless...this model is not even listed.



    Has anyone had this fixed?

I wouls unplug the TV overnight and see it it resets the timer feature. To pair the remote, you need to know the code and the pairing procedure - most remotes come with a manual or you will need to spend some time on Google.

TV turned off itself and timer light (red) keeps blinking


The TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.


If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

JVC tv "stuck" on sleep timer


I think you would have to turn off the sleep timer mode completely or increase its ON time span, say to 4 hours or so
or the lenth of time you have the TV on for. If that does not fix it then it sounds like a STANDBY MODE fault problem.
Hope this helps.

Sleep


If you unplug the unit for an hour or overnight, it should go out of sleep mode. If this dosent work then its not in sleep mode and the set has a problem in the power supply or the sweep circuit. Sorry you should seek a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck
