22" Sharp LCD power problem......

I am fond of my new Sharp 22SV2E. However, after a week there has been an intermittment problem on two occasions.

The TV has turns itself off onto standby after 5 seconds. It can be switched on again, but after 5 seconds it goes into standby !?

To make things more confusing, this seems to only happen when it is tuned into the Sky channel and not when it is recieving terrestrial signals or DVD.

The telly is in a bedroom and recieved signal through a standard coaxial cable, with an i-link for Sky 'daisy-chained' in the connection.

can anyone suggest anything ?

PS - I don't think that the Sharp is simply showing 'good taste' by turning off Sky !!

I've had mine about three weeks now it it hasn't done this.
The only slightly annoying thing it is now doing (which it didn't for the first week) is that the PSU has got noisy and makes a high pitch noise that I can hear in quiet scenes.

Does your screen hum, when you set the brightness to Dim or Medium, instead of Auto?

Thanks,

No it doesn't. The noise mine makes is the PSU and it is intermitant.

From your other post I think you have a faulty set.

Mine doesn't hum, it has a high pitched whine, which changes in volume as the brightness preset is changed. In a complete reverse of the noise plasmas make in regard to brightness of picture, my Sharp LCD whines more loudly, the darker the picture.:confused:

apologies for resurrecting this thread, but the power cut off hasn't happened again -

however, I am getting frequent brief sound drop out on the Sky + channel.

This is not while watching DD channels, but Sky One and Gold.

I don't get this on the Sharp while watching terrestrial channels thru the same ariel, nor do I get the Sky sound drop outs on any other TV in the house !!

please help ! do I take the TV back to John Lewis ? is this likely to be a faulty set !

many thanks
