T.V shuts off and power light blinks.
Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, [Exclude the model number] in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

How to change aspect ratio on sharp tv?
You cant change the aspect ratio. You can stretch and zoom programs . Some programs like movies are in letterbox and you can stretch to fill the screen, but the results are not perfect. Circles will be oval and you will cut off some of the viewable picture. This is normal

My 32" sharp lcd doesn't respond to the remote
Ok I just dealt with the Sharp customer support for this problem. 1) You need to unplug the TV for 1 full minute and remove the batteries from your remote aswell (this will reset the system)
2) Hold the power button on the remote for 30 seconds with the batteries still out of the remote and the TV still unplugged
3) After the 30 seconds replace batteries then press every button on the remote beginning with the power button in order from left to right and top to bottom (same way you read)
4) Then plug your tv back in and try the remote again.... and the remote and TV should be back in sync.
... let me tell you I thought the lady was crazy when she was telling me this but it worked!

Remove black line appears on your LCD TV
You may get a vertical black line appeared on your LD screen. Don't panic. You may not have to replace the LCD panel (cost $1K more) or replace the TV. This is likely due to the issue with X-Y control board (either with connector or electronics). Here is the trick, use your hand to apply pressure on the TV frame (the edge if there is one, not directly on the LCD itself) exactly above or below where the line is. I was able to make the line disappeared in a few trials. I have done this 2 to 3 times in the last 3 years. I guess the same may apply to a horizonal black line and you press on the left and the right of where the line is. Good luck and let us know if it works for you.
This tip may work on 1 line of defect. If you have more lines as group or they appear in several areas, you will have a real problem that needs serious repair.

Digital audio on lc 42sb45u
They are all wrong. I have this TV. What you think is an optical output actually isn't. The only audio output is coaxial and unfortunately it doesn't work with the HDMI inputs. This TV is a headache if your blue ray player only had HDMI.
