Are you able to try a reset on the TV to see if it restores the channel? You can do so by issuing the following for reset:1)Plug in TV then wait until LED start flashing. 2)Press Volume DOWN [ - ] HOLD BUTTON.3)Press Channel UP [ ^ ] HOLD BUTTON.4)Press Power [ (') ] HOLD ALL three buttons on the TV until LED stops flashing and then release.

I have completed a reset to go back to factory settings several different ways. I then have gone to initial setup and searched for channels. Every channel works fine except channel five which is NBC. What else might you suggest I do?

Tv unplugged. Holding volume down button and holding input button, plugged in tv. Nothing happened. Tv stayed off. I cant even get the first step to work. .? What is your next suggestion?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
At this point I would like to thank you for your help and suggestions. I have called the customer service department at Sharp Corporation. They indicated they were aware of the procedures you outlined for me but that they did not always work on every TV. They gave me the name of the authorized service company that services Sharp TV's in my area. I have called them and they will come to my home an service my TV. Thank you again Joel for your effort in helping me. It is appreciated. This will end our chat.
Thank you, Lynn
