Question about Sharp Aquos LC-37G4U 37 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
I just brought a Sharp Aquos LC-52D64U T.V. I hooked it up to the Hi Def DVR from Cox Communications and I am having a little difficulty with the audio. The sound is fine, but intermittently, the sound will skip for a second or short time. This occurs with normal T.V. viewing and also with recording. I received a Sony progressive DVD with the purchase and I have hooked up the HDMI cables. It is running beautifully, with sound and picuture, otherwise.
Just talked to a fellow at Audiotronics regarding Sharp Aquos.
This is a widespread problem with audio on their TV's, The tech. said there may be a full recall regarding this problem!!!

The sound went off on my Sharp Aquos, it comes back and then goes away again. After looking for answers on the web the repeated recommendations were to get new parts that were very expensive and did not guarantee a solution. What i ended up doing was, buying an adaptor that converts a 3.5mm jack to a RCA jack, and used it with my spare computer speakers. It works great and the solution was very inexpensive($11.00). The so called experts at the big box stores will try to lure you to buy a surround system by telling u that the tv is not strong enough to give them a good sound, but it's all BS, so dont fall for it, plus it's very expensive.

I called sharp technicians because the audio on my 2 year old sharp aquos lcd tv all of sudden turns off after just being on for 15 minutes. they told me to unplug the unit for 1 hour and then replug and turn on and that should reset the tv's audio. anyway, i did and that didn't work it still turned off. i called them back and they said because it was not under warranty and no one had made the same complaint to cause a recall they would not cover the service. anyway, next time i will buy sony :(

Help!!!! I've had an aquos TV for 2 years also, all of sudden the audio went kapoot!! Did the whole system reset and all, and at first try audio came back fine. But when I turned on the tv the next day no audio again. reset nor system reset did not do the trick... been resetting for days... =(
Called Sharpusa for some troubleshooting tips... Rep said it might be your RCA jack that went bad... then I tested my RCA jack by hooking it up to my radio's video/aux jack... well look at here audio works like a charm from my cable audio to my video/aux jack..
SHARP should do a recall on all their non playing audio tv's. this is not right... Any other ideas??

We just bot Sharp 46" and can only get mono sound and the display says analog even though we are receiving our signal through a cable digital box.

Did the same thing that nitram752003 did. I connected a pair of PC speakers to a 1/8" stereo female - 1/8" stereo female adpater on one side of the adapter and standard RCA jacks (1/8" stereo male to Dual RCA Male) on the other and plugged then into the Monitor Output. Change the Monitor Output setting to "Variable" from "Fixed" so that the remote works. Works fine. A good temporary fix - I'll buy a better pair of speakers when I have time. Don't waste your money getting the audio fixed by Sharp. The internal speakers are nothing special.

I called Cox Communications and the technician told me to disconnect every cable or connection and turn the DVR and T.V. off. Cox ran a diagnostic check to make sure my DVR was reading proper info from their center. It was, and then I reconnected everyhing, cables, HDMI plugs, and finally turned the DVR on. It read Boot, and then, I waited for the time to show. When it did, I turn the T.V. on. It has worked great since then. No problems with sound or picture. Hope this helps someone.

I refer to the purchase of a TV Sharp 888991 LCD52D64, sound is good, but I have problems with two-channel sound, I thought that it would be problem's cable, so I proceeded to call them, but they performed inspection and review came to the conclusion that this will be a problem of the team, which was not well. I consulted several opinions and we have determined that the problem is on your computer, reason for the I claim upon you. This is a problem generalized with audio in TV, hi-tech.

On all modern tvs they have soft ware that runs the unit. this can get a problem with it.You need to talk to a service center about firm ware up grades . Or use the model number on the net for upgrades.

Hmmm.. So it looks like I'm not the only one having a problem with a 2+ year old SHARP LCD. I've done all the things that are mentioned in this blog with typical results (audio going on and off at will). One thing to note though, my wife got so pissed off the other night she turned the TV on and off for about 10 min. The sound finally came on. She also smelled a burning order. If the sets catch on fire Sharp will have some serious lawsuits.

I bought a Sharp Aquos 14 months ago. I worked great up to about a month ago when the sound of two chanels will cycle on and off with about 5 seconds on and 10 seconds off or so. I have rabbit ears, the stations with the problem are analog. The interesting part is that one of the two channels having the problem comes in at another frequency which has no problems.

I have a fairly new sharp aquos 52 in lcd tv connected to a directv HD receiver. After about a week the sound would get real choppy for 10 - 20 seconds then come back on. I unplugged the HD receiver and took the card out then re-booted it and so far have not had any problems. I'm hoping the issue is with the receiver & not the tv.
