Darkened top screen?


Novice Member
This happened before and went away on its own. Now it’s back…

The top half (well, 3/5ths) of my screen is darker than the lower.

I swapped out the hdmi cables and it happens on all inputs.

I left the tv off and unplugged for hours. Checked for all updates on the tv and all other devices. I even tried some percussive maintenance.

Please somebody help! 😫😭

It’s a 70” Sharp Aquos LC-70LE650U

If you're technical, it may be a repair you can do yourself by watching some youtube vids and buying the parts but if not, it's not going to be a cost-effective repair and as above.
