Note that myself I do not send those $26 phone offers that you will receive , they are automated by the website and I`m not available for it at this time but another expert might be if you`d rather do this on the phone .
Otherwise you can just decline if you don`t want it .

i need to go upstairs and look for model number..do you have me registered when i sent in the original papers?

Sorry but there may be an error here

We are not the sharp company nor affiliated with them , i`m an independent tv tech. doing work on this pay for answer website and although i could help you with this again we are not sharp and your tv would no longer be under warranty anyway unless you have LONG extended warranty

Ask Your Own TV Question

I`m ready to accept your phone request but first i want to make sure you understand that this cost an extra $26
Do you still want that call or do you wish to continue in chat mode ?
That offer was sent automated by the website by the way , NOT ME

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I guess calling won't do me any good since you cannot guarantee anything

O.k then

No this is not sharp but i know those tv`s very well

Still want to proceed ??

Phone call session started

Phone would not be much of an advantage in this case , sounds like you may need repairs and parts so what i can do is help you determine if you want to effect those repairs , the costs or simply get a new tv

Ask Your Own TV Question

Looks like someone took you up on that phone offer before i could close it

Let me know if you do not get that call ?
