Sharp LC - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

This tends to be the result of an electrolytic capacitor somewhere, either on the main board or the power supply board bursting due to overheating. In this case you can pull off the back paneling and review the boards over to make sure all the capacitors are in excellent condition. After identifying a bad capacitor you can buy one from an electronics store in the area or a reputable online source. To replace it this will require soldering. Look for a capacitor with the same uF, the voltage can be the same or higher. Make sure all the power is out of the system before servicing, also make sure to note capacitor polarity observing the negative indicator line on the side. If your not sure this can be done at home I would recommend taking it in to a servicing shop. If you do not know what a capacitor looks like do a google image seatch for both examples of a good and bad copacitor. I honestly hope it's something much simpler, I hope this helped and good luck.

Voltage checking and caps inspection will be the first thing to do.
If you can post the pictures, that will help a lot. Look at the inverter board to see if you are getting 12~18vdc feeding it, also look for caps with leaking/bulging top.

This is basically a message for no signal on the tv, make sure the tv itself is on the correct input for the type of cable used. The inputs are labled by numbers on the back of the tv. The input can be changed by the button on the side panel of the tv.

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.

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

Are you really ask this? Plug it into your HDMI port, then link your Wifi to it. It will put that information on the screen when you turn it on.

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!

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.
