crap, i think it's a dud...
i get audio on the input channels, but not any video - I can't even bring up menu controls.
anyone know of any good Sharp Aquos service centers in the Dallas area? I think I'm just going to return it and ask for another one.
WARNING WARNING HOPE THIS HELPS
I guess this is a new t.v. ? Ok stop get the phone book and look under t.v. factory warrenty service centers give them a ding aling and ask what brand they do warrenty repaires on. Then if you can exchange your t.v. get one that can be repaired locally Most warrenty service do not touch off brand sets so make sure good luck to you and please post back if this helps stewe
copy that. I'll make sure it can be repaired locally or...
exchange it for another one. I've got ~20days to return the set, but I'd like to have a fully functioning TV before then.
I'll probably just end up returning it - I've heard many repair shops take forever to get to work on it and otherwise it's a nightmare.
wow! quick service and problem fixed!
first thing this morning I called sharp, they gave me a dispatch ticket # for the local shop and asked me to call back when the Sharp cust service can tend to that (just ~30 min later). I did, they identified a local repair shop and make the arrangements. I got a call later that morning to set-up an at-home service appt. and i requested ASAP. they had an opening this afternoon - so I took it.
problem solved - it was a loose video cable that must've gotten loose during shipping - some thing the first cust. service guy on the phone suggested was the issue. I've enjoyed 2 movies with my tv and oppo upconverting dvd player already!
thanks again stewee.
