I have no ghosting for the 3D test on any of the spheres on the screen.

I have a LC-60C8470U that will not power off. It just started doing this today. When pushing the power button on remote or the TV, the screen and audio turn on and off, but the upside down V on the bottom of the TV is staying on. I can tell the power is not going off because there is no relay click, and no delay when turning the TV back on. Anyone else having this issue?
post #1803 of 2660
This morning, I was prompted to update to the newest 407U121201 firmware.

Has anybody done this, and/or any known issues?
post #1804 of 2660
I just didthe update, went into my settings and they remain unchanged. I haven't verified it yet, but after the update a message boxed up that read...



Apologies for the very distracting picture, I was in a rush:eek:

Updated without any issues.

Mine still gets stuck at 67%! A service guy happened to be coming by today anyways, says he'll replace the main board next week.

Nothing is wrong with your TV if it shows 67% for awhile. Mine does the same, it stays at 67% and then shows update completed. It reboots and shows the message with the Successful update and what was in the new Update.
When I go in to the Smart Central, everything new is there. Everything else with the TV seems to be normal as before and the new firmware version is indicated.

Don't go changing things if its not needed.
Good luck
post #1808 of 2660
Same here. The % progress is about as useless on these as on Windows 7 -- a stuck number and then it's done!
Mine always seems to hang at 67% and then finishes. Just leave it alone. If your connection is weak, it may take longer.
post #1809 of 2660
I have the 70" and updated to the new firmware without any issues. Yes the update does hang at 67% but will continue, just be patient. The update log shows the addition of a few apps and games. I don't have the actual release notes right now. I did not see anything in the log that addressed any technical or performance issues and/or improvements. I have had this set since 9/12, have not had any issues and I am completely satisfied. Sharp has produced a very good product and have shown through these frequent updates that they are continually trying to improve what is an already good set.

This firmware adds Facebook, Twitter, Pandora, Flickr, Picasa, Rhapsody as well as several new games to the Smart Central Apps.

This firmware also contains all previous fixes and enhancements.

Version: 407U1212101

Guys is there a app center?? Or is whats under the smart central area it for apps?

Also....I did a 3d test....when glasses are on and running test I see no ghosting or shadows around any of the circles.....im loving this 3D.......now when I run the 3d test and and take glasses off during 3D screen there is shadowing around the first two rows of circles, but again this is with glasses off....which to me seems normal or appropriate as this all disappears when glasses are worn.

Also FWIW i purchased a pair of the PS3 3d glasses from best buy for $24 bucks and they work great! They will also charge off my laptop

Did you check to see if the new apps work?
post #1813 of 2660
My 80" has had an audio problem in that occasionally the sound will become garbled, change the channel and its fine. Change it back to the original channel and its fine. No set frequency, can go days without occurring. Anyone else having this problem?

Tcollins are you having a lip sync issue? You see actors on tv talking then hear voice a few seconds later? Or are are you switching channels and losing voice all together? If so I had the same two issues along with others.....I also have Verizon Fios here are a couple things to try .....I did both and issues are gone

If you have lip syncing issues an if running HDMI cable from cable box to tv make sure you don't plug the HDMI cable going into the first HDMI port on back of tv marked ARC....plug it into the second port......if your losing volumn all together you need to get into your service menu and switch audio setting from auto to LPCM.....if you have Verizon Fios and you go back a few pages you will see how to do this it's easy and takes all of two min(page 59 to be exact)...hope that works for you!

Greetings all,

My LC-LE847U was delivered last Friday. Originally I wanted to pick it up myself but changed it to delivery after reading this thread and decided that it would be smarter to put the responsibility on the delivery people wink.gif . I wanted to see the TV on the truck before they took it out, but these guys were too fast. When I came out of the house the TV was already on the guy's shoulder. I asked if it stood up or if it was flt, he said it was up. The box was perfect.
Anyway, they had to bring it in through the bulkhead door to the basement. Everything went perfectly fine until the guy holding the back (most of the TV was already inside) dropped his side of the box from about 1 ft. above the floor. The carrying handle, cut into the box, simply gave way. They opened the box and everything looked good..no damage at all. The foreman offered to plug it in and test it but I wasn't ready to do that at the time. He was fine with it and assured me that I have 30 days to call if there is any issue and they'll come and replace it.
I did plug the TV later that night and it looked perfect, couldn't see anything that might have happened because of this drop.

Anyways, I didn't have much time at all since Friday to play with it. I didn't even open the manual yet mad.gif. I plugged it in to my DirecTV HD DVR with a USB and pretty much enjoyed the hour or so of TV that I watched.
Then last evening I spend hours on plugging my new receiver. I run the DVR through the receiver (Pioneer VSX-1022). Granted, I didn't even see the manual for the receiver yet.

In any event, the reason I am posting here before even reading the manual or changing anything in the setup of either device, is that if you saw few pages back, I had some concerns from reading the entire thread about clouding and other issues.
I didn't notice any clouding until yesterday, when my DVR was connected directly to HDMI1. Of course, I didn't even watch a BR movie yet.
The thing that changed yesterday was that for some reason, when I change channels in my DVR now (goes through the not-yet-set-up receiver), it sometimes takes forever for the new channel to come up and occasionally the new channel doesn't come up at all eek.gif...so when that happens, the screen darkens and that's when I saw for the first time the infamous blue clouding frown.gif
I also noticed some a/v sync issues, with and without the receiver. All the reports that I read referred to Verizon's Fios box, I did not see anything about DirecTV receivers.

Hopefully I will have some time during the weekend to extensively play with settings.

Thanks for listening.

Clouding appears to be an issue for everyone, its not just this TV, you can look at any other LCD on here aside from a few all of them have some sort of uniformity issues whether is from the backlight or the panel itself. In normal viewing I NEVER notice it.

As far as the channels taking awhile to load, Make sure you set your directv box to output only 1 resoloution. If the TV is changing resolution everytime the DVR box does it make take certain channels awhile to show up on screen.

You will probably need to play with your AVR again in regards to lip sync issues, I had a light sync delay with mien that was fixed the minute I ran MCACC again on my Pioneer.

Thanks Shady195. Good suggestion about D*'s 1 resolution, didn't think about that.

As I mentioned, I am yet to open the manuals, not to mention running MCACC cool.gif. I am sure that sitting down and learning/setting this up will improve thing.

Thanks.

Survivorman,

Have lip sync issues also and have HDMI cable into HDMI 1, will try HMDI 2 to see if it helps. I have Comcast, not sure if others are having problems.

Thanks,

Yea when i moved my HDMI cable out of HDMI 1 with ARC and into the second HDMI my lip sync issues were gone

Johnfull, as usual you are spot on and as noted by several others who reported the same after the last update. Searching the archives showed similar results folllowing last update at the 2/3 and/ 66/67% point then the fully successful indication. Like you said, very similar to some software downloads.

tcollins, searching the board will reveal several potential solutions that have worked for some, but none that have worked for all. As has been mentioned, not only are you dealing with different signal providers but even within these providers, there are different boxes being used. One such fix that has proved to be very helpful to many people and discovered by kissfn (although he sometimes doesn't get credit for it) involves FIOS and changing HDMI ports and AV settings and seems to work well. I thought it would help me but it turns out my Verizon was using a newer model box and that "fix" wasn't a fix for me. I found a different fix recommended by Verizon using a component cable instead of HDMI that works withmy box when HDMI lags. Of course a pause and restart will almost alway "work" also. But, kissfn's would probably be a good place to start and can be found by using the search box. I haven't really payed too much attention to Comcast mattters but you might search "comcast" also just to see whats been posted. As a new owner, I'd suggest you also review the warranty and extended warranty discussions. As a relatively new owner, it saved me from making a possibly bad or expensive error.

Bmwpc, my current fix has been to change channels and it seems to fix the problem Thatswhy I think it's software related. TRC
post #1825 of 2660
I got a Sharp LC70LE847U for my mom for Christmas. I set it up, and it's having sporadic audio sync issues. It doesn't happen with DVDs from the DVD player or the Blu-Ray player. It only happens with the Tivo. Tivo says the problem is likely the TV's processing, but I've tried a few things (setting it different picture modes, mostly) and can't get it work. I took the AV receiver out of the setup, because I was told it might be that, but it didn't fix it (I will add it again once I get this problem fixed). Currently, the cable is connected to the Tivo and the Tivo is connected to the TV via an HD cable. That's it (aside from the DVD players).

The audio is normally ahead of the video, but pausing the video even for a second and playing it catches it up. It also will "jump" and catch itself up sometimes. I can't really predict when it will happen, but it seems like the longer I watch a network, the more it happens. Sometimes I can watch for an hour or more and it never happens, but once it starts, pausing it and pressing play will fix it for about 10 minutes and then it's back again.

What can I do to fix this issue? It's really annoying. The Tivo didn't have this problem with the other TV, but it was wired with component cables. The other TV is not HD.

I just saw that there are some solutions right above me I haven't tried. I will try those tomorrow. I swear I searched this forum (and three others) and thought I had tried everything. I can't believe I didn't read the thread I'm posting in (I read a few pages of it). I hate people like that!

Hi does anyone know if there is an option to swap the Left/Right eyes for 3d?
post #1827 of 2660
My update has been frozen at 67% for over four hours at this point. This happened with the last update as well (I was able to recover via a manual download onto a USB drive, but I've lost smart central). Do I have a lemon, or is this purely a software issue that Sharp will ultimately figure out?
post #1828 of 2660
Haven't found a 3d glasses flip flop setting yet, but I watched a half hour clip I found online with the glasses upside down and that worked! A little uncomfortable on the nose, could have used some foam padding.

Regarding lip sync issues, my TiVo runs through a Denon and the sync seemed fine until a live NBC show one day, but only that show. turned off a setting for auto lip sync in the Denon and that fixed it. I mention this because while mine are off, some receivers like to do extra video OR audio processing and that can contribute some confusion to troubleshooting if not causing the whole problem.
And my TiVo offers Dolby audio and PCM audio settings, Dolby is working for me but your mileage may vary, and given the FIO threads, PCM may be an answer for some.

I also had an issue trying to set up wifi, didn't work no matter how many times I tried and rebooted, until:
I disabled security on the router (for this network was using WEP 64 bit so some older devices can play along) and made a connection, then I used a different password with security succesfully (since I wondered if the key needed to be caps or not (btw=not)) and then changed it back to what I was using in the first place. Works now. I also changed the key fo automatic from shared (the other devices didn't care) but I HAD tried that before erasing everything.
So it seems to not want shared in any case, and it does have to be the first network key (manual says so).

Hey Myoda, I'm having serious crosstalk/ghosting issues as well and was wondering did you get your board replaced through a tech sent by sharp or was it a local tech?
