I've read lots of posts of TVs shutting themselves down and not restarting, so I was a bit alarmed when mine did the following.
An hour into viewing, the sound cut out, followed by the picture and the pilot light chevron briefly blinked out and came back on.
Then the set restarted itself normally with no more problems. Until the next day, when the exact same thing happened again!
I called Aquos Advantage and was treated with respect, but they have no record of this kind of problem ever happening before.
I was told that I should unplug the set for 5 minutes and replug it to allow the TV to reboot. I did that and haven't seen the
problem re-appear as yet. I was assured that it would be covered by warranty indefinitely because I had filed a report on the issue.
The set went through an update several weeks ago and has never had power removed meantime, so maybe it's as simple as
needing that hard re-boot. I'd rather not do a factory re-set, since I would lose the calibration settings that I worked on for so long.
Just wondering if anyone else has had a similar issue...thoughts...
The random reboot completely shuts the TV off and then it comes back on in about 5-7 seconds. No messages or feedback provided as to why the reboot happened. I have gone through all menu items and disabled anything that would "reboot" the set (i.e. lost connection, etc...). Still no luck in diagnosing the cause or finding a solution. Sharp advised they have not seen any issues with this model. I have replaced hdmi cables and checked all connections...did a reset that didn't seem to do anything...
Any ideas or suggestions?
Also, I had tried unplugging the TV overnight before the first "fix", and it did not fix the problem. My TV can go for days or weeks without it happening, but it does continue to happen.
The unplugging worked for me. The power supply replacement on yours would have necessitated unplugging it, so neither fix worked for yours.
Mine has yet to act up again, though I do get a 'No Signal' notification in the lower left of the screen an hour into BluRay features playing through HDMI #2.
The Satellite box through HDMI #1 is the one that had the re-start problem and has never had the notification problem. Don't think they're related.
Meantime, we're all stuck with ticking time bombs?...
That sounds almost too good to be true. I would recommend that you let Aquos Advantage know of your problem so they can register it -- if you haven't already...
If yours occurs again, I would definitely recommend having Sharp come out and look at the TV so that will count towards your qualified repairs. Best Buy has two more shots with me...
We should have a single thread for all models of Sharp that are displaying this anomaly.
I've hunted around and found the issue from owners of various models. Class action, anyone?...
The tech also told me to update my Denon Receiver (required me getting a 100 ft ethernet cord, as it's not wireless). I have no idea if that made any difference, but I really think the problem was with the TV.
I'll post back if any additional problems occur, etc.
My Denon is not wireless either! How much did that ethernet cord set you back?
I seriously doubt that it needs updating -- it plays 3D effortlessly, along with SACD and DVD-A, etc.
The only problem I've had with it is occasional older DVDs being out of lip-synch.
I might drag it into the computer room at some point and let it go through an update.
Does it require onscreen intervention? Probably...
Hi Guys. I bought my 70" Sharp 3D last August. When it arrived at my house, it was dead on arrival. I proceeded to call Sharp and they sent a tech out and he replaced the power board. Everything was wonderful...just a great TV. Well, 2 days ago, TV just powered off. Initially, I just wiggled the power cord and it powered back on. It worked for about an hour and then the same thing happened. I took the back cover off and disconnected wires from power board and re-connected...worked again. Now, it is just repeating its powering off/on about every 10 minutes (with me disconnecting and reconnecting). Sharp better be honoring my warranty since this seems to be a very related problem from the start.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
