    I have a Sharp 28JW74.
    The picture quality is good however, when using 14:9 zoom, 16:9 zoom, & Superwide screen modes the picture flickers at the top left, center, & right of the screen.
    It's often drowned out by the colour on screen but as soon as a dark scene comes on or the screen goes black (such as the end credits of a movie) you can see the flickering.
    4:3 mode and Anamorphic widescreen mode don't seem to suffer from this problem.
    Anyone got some ideas please ?.

    Can anyone offer some advice at all ?.
    I can't be the first person to experience this.

    I'd guess the lack of response on the forum is because not many people here have experience of Sharp TVs.

    My son has a 28"WS Sharp and it performs perfectly on all picture settings.

    Sounds like a job for an engineer to me...

    Be sure it is the TV itself that's the cause of this and not the cables or the source (digibox, DVD player...)

    Thanks for the help guys.
    I've exhanged the set and it does more or less the same thing.
    I don't think it can be caused by cables because it only effects certain screen modes.
    I'm using a standard TV cable anyways (non-digital).
