I thought that my stand/base was defective. So, I called Sharp Elite customer services. They sent out a new stand but the new stand is also NOT leveled.

I saw that one person reported this problem earlier: "My 70 is on its stand and I noticed it's not perfectly straight up/down. It leans a bit backwards, about 5 degrees. Is that normal, or is my TV stand bad? (I've already checked the shelf it's currently on, and it's level.)"

I am not sure what to do now. Any kind suggestion is most welcome. Thank you!

The first time I assembled mine it leaned. I took the base back out of the panel and looked up in the slot. There are a couple of tabs that the vertical riser from the base is suppose to hook under. If you miss those tabs the riser will fit in the slot but the panel will be tilted. After I reassembled it making sure to get the riser under the tabs my panel was vertical.

Thanks for your reply, rmongiovi. You mean there are tabs in the TV display panel that the metal risers are supposed to hook in to? I ask because I made sure each metal riser is hooked into the slot properly on the base of the stand itself. But, I have never looked up inside the back on the TV panel...
post #7293 of 14509
Yes. Up inside the slot in the bottom of the panel. If you put the risers on the base and then attach to the panel, the base blocks your view and you have to be careful to get under the tabs. If you attach the risers in the panel slot before attaching the base it's easier because you can see that they're under the tab.

Also the Pioneer codes work on accessing the menu so that leads me to believe that it incorporates some Pioneer technology also. What exactly it is, none of us know.

Yes, it's hard to argue against the use of remote codes. Of course, that was probably a not to some random set of Pioneer Elite remotes out there in the field.

Here's what I know: Pioneer made plasma TVs. 99% of the technology in a plasma TV is not applicable to an LCD TV.

If people want to believe there was some secret technology transfer, they are entitled to do so. It really doesn't matter. Pioneer hadn't made TVs in years. They used to make a really good one. Now, Sharp makes a really good one.

I promise to stop commenting on this fake "partnership" anymore.

When is the successor due for this year? Any hints on it yet?

It's not due till late in Q3 or early in Q4. Some speculation is that it will be 4K, but nothing is confirmed.

Today Sharp (Elite Support) agreed to replace my 70" Elite. It was an early build from August, 2011.

For the past few months I have had a handshake problem between the cable box, the AVR and the TV. At times it would not turn on, other times just sound, and after the last software update it would sometimes display a screen full of lines/colors etc. A factory reset did not help. I have never been able to get avr to display the volume on screen. Anyone know what settings I need to change on the SC-57 to do that?

Sharp first wanted to repair the set, I pressed for the replacement.

When Robert (VE) delievered this back in November, he used a usb stick with a white screen to test what I thought were the pixel, dead or stuckon?

How should I test the new display when it arrives? Could someone perhaps email the files I might need to test pixels and even the pulsing perhaps?

Is there anything else I should test before they leave?

Thanks for any help you can suggest/provide.

You will never be able to......because ths SC-57 does not have a volume OSD. As a matter of fact, it does not display any OSD, only when you enter the settings menu but that takes over any sources input.

Thanks. You'll have to let me know what you think of them. Do they have a 2D mode?

Does any Pioneer have on-screen volume?

only when connected to the original Pioneer Elite Kuro (there is a way, can't remember how at the moment) but with any other TV, no.

for the person who asked about Sharp's 3D glasses vs Elite 3D glasses, they are absolutely identical in performance. The Elite version is more expensive in Elite box, that's all the difference.

last but not least, anybody every experienced the blue-blink of death and can revive the Sharp Elite TV without taking it to service? Taking down a 70" from the 2nd floor is a b!tch.

Is this a blinking power light and no pic?

Yup!

Land Ho!
I'm on page 224 of 244. I hope I'll have a couple of answers to this question by the time I get to 244: What is the manufacture date of the last few sets purchased - both 60" & 70" please? (I hope skipping about 100 pages of the thread won't get me banned.)

LOL... It's hard to get banned. Honestly, I doubt your question would even get a flame.

I visited my local high end dealer today, looking at both the Elite 60" and 70". As expected, the 70" did not look quite as "detailed" as the 60", however the difference was more than subtle. Those of you that have been able to compare the two, has this been your experience as well, or does my dealer need to tweak the larger set?

Any dealer worth their salt should have calibrated their screen especially when they're trying to sell something that expensive.

Does the menu come up on the TV? If so, try unplugging your HDMI source, pull the power for the TV, plug TV back in, turn on TV, then plug in your source.
post #7311 of 14509
can't be turned on at all. Unplugging the power for several hours and plugging it back in doesn't help either.
post #7312 of 14509
Just to try something, how about doing the power-up sequence for a USB firmware update? Might force it into action ... this page has a link to the instructions. Just see if it gets into the update mode then just cancel out of it.

BTW, which FW version are you running? The last one - 2.16 - was supposed to fix some power-up problem.

The most common response I've gotten from dealers that should be a step up from BB is that their customers don't have an interest in calibration because what ever set they were pushing at the moment is "very good" out of the box.

When I got to the point of wanting a calibration for my display, I was unable to get recommendations from any dealer in our area. I found one through AVS which is what got me stated collecting calibration reports.

I can't say I agree with that. My buddy just got the 70" and I have the 60" and I think they're both very comparable in detail. It's hard to pick a winner in that respect.

I think you're probably right, the dealer needs to calibrate the larger one.

tried that. doesn't work either. the sadder part is now some of my clients are experiencing the same problem too. 6 TVs (including mine) so far.

The difference to my eye (and my customers too), that after calibration the picture is THAT much better. I even had my "doubting clientelles" where I told them that if they can't see a big difference, they don't need to pay me; all of them (about 4 Elite "doubting clientelles") ended up getting me to calibrate their other TVs around their houses too.

Don't know for sure. Bought it in November, IIRC.
post #7319 of 14509
^^^ Then unless you did the 2.14 FW update it still has 2.13 most likely. Did you try getting it into FW update mode? It involves unplugging the unit from the power outlet, then plugging it back again while holding a couple of buttons down so it might spur something up.

never received any update from Sharp Canada although I've been requesting it since CES 2012 (when I was there as their guest)
