Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
Hello, and sorry you're having problems. We are now connected on this website- which saves you money over having a Tech come to your home, and in many cases we can fix the problem you're having. In other cases, these things do require additional parts to fix. But I can help you with that as well.
Does the Sharp Welcome screen show up when you power the set ON?
What is connected to the set for sources?
Is the power light lit, blinking or not on at all?
Is the sound coming from the internal TV speakers, or a home audio system?
Please elaborate and we can proceed.
Okay, lots of this is not lining up here. The TV's speakers should not be working if the TV's own native welcome image does not even turn on. Please shut the TV off, then turn it back on and let me know if anything at all displays on the screen.
Are you still with me here?
