That's alarming, and if turned out to be the case for me as well, it will be the last time I touch Sharp...

I still have a 42" Vizio LCD bought in 2007, that had its board replaced after 2 months, been solid ever since. Survived moving between 3 states, and on average a move every 1.5 years, so it's been a workhorse. Maybe I got lucky...

Keep us posted, I think the refurb will be fine. Also, you could try and sell if on Craigslist once you get it and move to something else.

I am using the following HDMI cable for 3D Bluray watching

The wall mount I used was a Sanus VuePoint F808 Low Profile Wall Mount.

For 3D glasses I currently own 4 pairs of Sharp's an3dg20b model
http://www.amazon.com/Sharp-AN3DG20B-3D-Glasses-Black-Single/dp/B005JABSB6

I also purchased and use 2 pairs of Monstervision Max 3D glasses
http://www.amazon.com/MonsterVision-Eyewear-System-Active-Sync/dp/B004443WRG

The Monstervision glasses system uses RF and not IR technology. It came with an adapter for converting the IR signal to RF. The adapter however, did need its firmware upgraded in order to work with the Sharp LC-80LE844U TV. I actually prefer the picture from these glasses over the Sharp name brand glasses.

I've been enjoying this TV everyday ever since it was delivered 2 weeks ago. The picture defintely needed calibrating, but that was done quickly. Highly recommend this unit to anyone who wants a large screen for less $$ than the competition.
Please tell me how you got your update or where could I get it for the Monstervision glasses. I own a Sharp tv as well but the monster vision system doesn't quite understand the code. I would so love you if you could help me.

I got these Xpand glasses from Best Buy.

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/xpand-youniversal-rechargeable-active-shutter-3d-glasses-bluetooth-and-ir-blue/6923386.p?id=1218814079212&skuId=6923386&st=xpand&cp=1&lp=2

They work great with my 844U and since they are large they fit perfectly over my prescription glasses.

Iv read 20 pages, my Sharp Aquos 70 shuts off during films 3 to 5 times a week or pretty much every other film.

 

Was their any conclusion?  Its to confusing at the end of a long day to then battle my TV that resets.

I have to every night unplug it and plug it back in (thats when it does not shut off) It will freeze solid.

 

Did people find a solution?

 

I cant say Ill ever get another Sharp anything ever, especially the squaretrade.,com extended warranty.

 

Hating this TV!

It almost looks like a crack.

Has it always been this way since you had the TV?

Anyone have an idea how to operate 2 of the same Sharp TV;s in one room with a harmony link remote?

The problem I have is the remote controls both TV's at the same time. I have two of the same brand Sharp TV's in the same room.

Thanks

If it is under warranty, have them fix it. If they can't fix it, have them replace it.
My set re-boots on its own periodically, interrupting movies or TV broadcast in the process.
It first happened under warranty and Sharp tried to repair it with 4 service calls.
Then they sent a refurbished set that would not power on at all (!).
Now they are promising a brand new set over 2 years after the problem first appeared.
I haven't been given a date of delivery as yet. Holding my breath that it will not be a lemon...

Can they be operated by bluetooth? Such would likely require pairing, thus locking the "paired devices" so that the remote doesn't perform any action on the other device. Would likely require reconnecting to that particular TV each time you want to switch sets though.

Even though I had reluctantly agreed to swap with a Refurb, unfortunately my refurb experience did not go well . It took them a long time to find one and then schedule it for delivery. It finally came in on Friday. Two guys showed up and brought the humungous TV inside. They opened the box to check the TV with power first before installing it. There was big crack, right in the middle of the screen. The screen was literally broken into two halfs They obviously repacked it and took it back. They were apologetic all along and mentioned that as a common issue with large TV (refurb units) because the refurb units are not packaged well. Once again that was their experience, not a general statement.

Well anyway, Sharp customer service has now agreed to swap my old 844u with the new Sharp 80uq17u. I have no idea how that TV is and I see there is a 104 page thread on the 2014 series. Well, it will take me some time go through it. Its edge lit though because Sharp does not make Full Array any more. So I am welcoming myself into the Flashlighting club with the extra bonus of clouds all over. Plus it has some sort of marketting BS called Q+ which CNet is panning in their review.

So long 844 thread. It was a great TV with absolutely stunning picture while it lasted.

RIP.

TrueDepth 3D Glasses

http://truedepth3d.com/product/true-...-tvs-closeout/

At $14.99 a pair, I ordered a pair of these glasses to try out.

Anyone use these glasses with the 844U?

Settings for 80 Inch 844, HELP!!!

I attempted to finally calibrate my 80 inch 844 this weekend but got frustrasted. I was using my old eyepro 2 to do the grayscale but was unable to figure out the 10 point settings. I could not get much movement in reds, greens, blue for the steps. I assume step 1 is 10% and step 10 is 100%, correct? I tried it the other way with no success.

I was able to calibrate contrast, brightnesss, color and tint, but feel like the grayscale is way off. The color was just not right either.

Is there a thread with a some recommened tv settings to get me going? I feel like I might have something turned on or selected that I should not. Please help!!!!

10 Point Settings on 80 Inch 844

The 10 point settings in color are for grayscale, correct? Setting 1 is for 10%, 2 is for 20% and so on, correct?

I tried to adjust grayscale with my eyepro 2 and could not get blues to come down between 30-70% grayscale. I was using HCFR for software.

You can try these to start -- others with your model found them
better than out of the box. Yellow pixel throws off gauge readings,
so these are going to look better:

I used this web article and it worked great

You download and make a DVD and then walk through the settings using the DVD.

Stand screws

Hi folks,

I have this TV, which I love to death, but I'm taking it off the wall and putting it back onto the stand. Problem is I can't find the screws. Can anyone tell me the specs (size/length/thread) please? The only thing I can get from Sharp and others is the part number for the screw replacement bag, which is 12 screws (only 4 of which are the ones I need).

Help?

Thanks!

Hello all. I bought this TV a year ago give or take a couple months and I love it. Bought a super nice low profile stand and got it all set up to my liking than my wife got tired of condo living so we bought a house. Now I have absolutely no place big enough for this TV so I must part with it. Can anyone tell me where is a good place to sell it and what should I ask and expect to get for it? Never had any issues with it and it comes with this stand.
http://www.amazon.com/PLATEAU-VALENC.../dp/B003KY84P6

Thanks for your help.

Well, obviously you bought the wrong house...

Craigslist is always a good option, locally, especially with large hard-to-ship items...
