My Sharp TV recently developed a shadow on the bottom half.

Customer Question
My Sharp TV recently...

My Sharp TV recently developed a shadow on the bottom half.

Technician's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Sharp is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

About 3 years old.

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

The menu works, and it works on all inputs.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

Just a couple days. I recently put a 700 watt microwave and a dorm refrigerator in the room.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Expert to know before I connect you?

I think that covers it.
