SHARP LC-52X20

LCD TV


SERVICE MODE AND POWER SUPPLY CIRCUIT 

Error detection
1. Function
This LCD color TV set incorporates a lamp error detection feature that automatically turns off the power for safety under abnormal lamp or lamp circuit conditions. If by any chance anything is wrong with the lamp or lamp circuit or if the lamp error detection feature is activated for some reason, the following will result.
1) The power is interrupted in about 6 seconds after it is turned on.
(The power LED on the front of the TV set turns red from green and keeps blinking in red: ON for 250 ms and OFF for 1 sec.).
2) If the above phenomenon 1) occurs 5 times consecutively, it becomes impossible to turn on the power. (The power LED remained red).
2. Measures
1) Checking with lamp error detection OFF
Enter the adjustment process mode, referring to 1. Entering and exiting the adjustment process mode. If there is a problem with the lamp or lamp circuit, the lamp will go out. (The power LED is green.) Then, you can check the operation to see if the lamp and lamp circuit are in trouble.
2) Resetting the lamp error count
After the lamp and lamp circuit are found out of trouble, reset the lamp error count. If a lamp error is detected five consecutive times, the power cannot be turned on. Using the cursor (UP/DOWN) key, move to the cursor to [LAMP ERROR RESET], Line 8 on adjustment process mode service page 2/33. With the cursor (LEFT/RIGHT) keys, select the [LAMP ERROR RESET] value. Finally press the cursor (OK) eys to reset the value to “0”.
Entering and exiting the adjustment process mode
1. Press the “POWER” key on the set of running TV set to force off the power.
2. While holding down the “VOL (-)” and “INPUT” keys on the set at once, plug in the AC power cord to turn on the power. The letter “K” appears on the screen.
3. Next, hold down the “VOL (-)” and “P (V)” keys on the set at once. Multiple lines of character string appearing on the screen indicate that the set is now in the adjustment Process mode. If you fail to enter the adjustment process mode (the display is the same as normal startup), retry the procedure. (Another procedure)

4. Press the “MENU” key on the main unit to display OSD.
5. Move the cursor to SERVICE (OSD) using the cursor keys on the remote control.
Then press the “MENU” key on the remote control to enter the service mode (adjustment process mode).

6. To exit the adjustment process mode after the adjustment is done, unplug the AC power cord to force off the power. (When the power is turned off with the remote controller, once unplug the AC power cord and plug it in again. In this case, wait 10 seconds or so before plugging.)
CAUTION: Use due care in handling the information described here lest the users should know how to enter the adjustment process mode. If the settings are tampered with in this mode, unrecoverable system damage may result.
 Adjustment method after PWB and/or IC replacement due to repair
The unit is set to the optimum at the time of shipment from the factory. If any value should become improper or any adjustment is necessary due to the part replacement, make an adjustment according to the following procedure.
