    Hello.

    First post from a technophobic newbie so apologies for the use of basic language to describe my problem.

    I have just purchased a Sharp LC-37GA5E which refuses to turn itself on from standby mode. The reason for this post is to make sure I haven't missed anything obvious before I complain to the vendor.

    The proceedure I carry out is as follows.

    1)Plug in. Power indicator turns red.
    2)Press standby on remote. Power indicator turns green. Picture appears
    3)Press standby on remote. Power indicator turns red. TV switches off.
    4)Press standby or channel button on remote. Nothing happens.
    5)Press power button on TV to turn off. TV turns off.
    6)Press power button on TV to turn on. Power indicator turns green but no picture appears.
    7)Unplug/plug in TV and start all over again.

    In the instruction manual there is a note in the trouble shooting section regarding the action to be taken if the unit cannot be operated. It basically says to unplug and plug in again. However I wondered if this was an indication of a known issue regarding the standby mode on this model. Probably not but I thought it worth a mention. Equally unlikely, although I would appreciate if anyone can confirm this, does this TV require a complete power down before it will turn on again? Is this normal for an LCD?

    I should also say that I have been sure to use the TV in a low light, static free enviroment. I have also tried disconnecting all attached equipment and playing with the various menu settings, all to no avail.

    Thank you.

    Apologies ijd but I'm not sure what you mean. How would this affect the TV from turning on from standby mode? I do have to repeat I'm totally useless with this sort of thing. I believe my equipment is connected correctly. I receive all terrestrial/Sky channels OK even if the TV picture is not quite as good as I expected. A little ghosting and slightly fuzzy text on sky menus etc. In the last hour the TV has started to respond normally. I've done so much messing about with connections and settings I can't be sure if it's something I've done or just intermittent normal TV operation. I'm definately confused as you can probably tell.
