Sharp Aquos - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
I have a brand new
While the set is turned on, you need to hold the power button until the set shuts off and the led in the middle of the bottom flashes once. Then quickly release the power button and press the vol - and input buttons together along with the power button. Your TV should then turn on and should show you a blue box with the letter K. Now press the vol- and channel- buttons at the same time. You should now be in the service menu. With your remote arrow up until the top line says industry init. Arrow to the right and hit enter. Screen should turn green and say factory init success. I hope this helps you.

Display powers of with power up of AVC
how many blinks does the red light give in a row? This would be an error code?
The problem for 7 blinks would be an Interface board. Apparently there is a glitch in the interface board that sends signals to the television.
Basically the glitch shorts out the board and the t.v wont turn on and
you will see the power light blink 7 times pause then 7 more. You can
replace the board with a new one and update the software on the new interface board.
If is isn't 7, let me know and I will help you out with this

The tv menu keeps popping up
The reason your television keeps popping up the menu is simply because, either the remote or the televisions menu button is stuck.
To test if it is the remote, remove the battery from the back of the remote and try to operate the television from the buttons on the television to see if it works, if it pops up, then it means the problem is not from the remote and its from the television.
Either ways you have to open the remote and clean the panel with naphthalene, then adjust the menu button on it. or you can as well get a new remote for your television if you cannot clean it on your own.
Also to fix the television if it is detected as the fault, get the appropriate screwdriver, open up the television, then try to locate the menu button, then you adjust it and try to operate with either the remote of the menu key on the television.
Once it is seen to be working, ensure that the television is properly coupled back.
Always make sure the keys on the coputer and the television are not pressed too hard.

Lcd sharp tv flashing green light
Try unplugging the unit and while unit is unplugged hold the volume up button and channel down buttons down and while depressing both buttons plug the unit in. Let go of the buttons and the unit should come on in the service mode. There will be a small k on the screen. With the sharp remote press the channel up button once. This should bring up a menu that will show a lamp error line. If the lamp error is = to 5 the unit is in lamp error shut down. User channel down to highlight that line and curser right arrow to highlight the lamp error #. Hit the enter button to clear the lamp errors. Now unplug the unit and let it sit for a minute and plug back in. I hope this corrects the problem. If the unit does not come on by doing this or if it does and you do not find lamp errors the power supply pcb may have been damaged by the surge.

Sharp tv resolution not supported
I often use IDealshare VideoGo to convert all Sharp TV unsupported video file, like MKV, MP4, AVI, WMV, MOV, FLV, ASF, 3GP, AVCHD, MPG, MPEG, WEBM, etc to Sharp TV supported one and also convert any video format to another one, like converting MKV to MP4 etc.

According to SharpUSA the problem with the "Loss of Sync" error message is that (most probably) the cables (between the box and the display) are not connected properly (so remove and reconnect them carefully, on both units) or a cable is defective.
Also, after you reconnect the cables try turning on the unit, if no success then depress the "clear" button on the external box (under the door on the front and on the bottom left and try turning on the TV again).
It is, most likely, that the cables are not seated properly. Reseat the cables on both the display and the external box.
Hopefully, this will clear the problem
if still does not solves your problem just replace all the cables connected between .u can get the new cables at radioshack web site.just place an order they will provide you.

Sharp Aquos turns itself off
How many times per second does the POWER led blink? (dont worry about the OPC).
1x per second (constant, steady blink) = bad inverter/lamps
2x per second = bad power supply
3x per second = bad main board
You can buy the parts online and fix if yourself!!
