The only thing you can do is turn the bass down Or a better idea is save your money and invest in a sweet 5.1 sound system WELL WORTH IT SOUND IS AS IMPORTANT AS PICTURE. You wont believe what an impact adding 5.1 will do you will be in the movie not just watching it I have never used my t.v. speaker I dont even know if they work. Most t.v. speakers are horrible sounding Here is a joke for you I remember the old t.v.s huge wood cabinit tiny screen with large excellent speakers it sounded beautiful if only you could see the picture ha ha stew
Hey everyone, just wondering if any Sharp LC-37D43U owners out there have experienced this problem as well.
I don't know if I should be returning this set, or just leaving the "virtual surround" sound mode off to solve this problem.
Here's what's happening:
1) Sony HDMI DVPNS75H player connected to my Sharp LC-37D43U tv through HDMI.
2) Set the tv "surround" sound mode to ON.
3) Play chapter 3 of Star Wars Episode 3. First 10-15 seconds, when you hears the drums... the television emits a LOUD and completely noticeable rattling sound for the 10-15 seconds of the drumming.
4) After that, the speaker/tv rattling sound is not very noticeable at all, and disappears completely if you turn OFF the surround sound mode on the tv. I have not watched the entire movie, but have skimmed through several chapters to try to replicate this issue, and the problem does not appear very prevalent. Again, this rattling is unavoidable in the situation described above, but almost unnoticeable anywhere else.
5) TV volume is set to 40 btw.
I can't seem to re-create this rattling noise with regular television viewing, such as through my cable box, and I will test this again with other dvd's I own tonight. The rattling noise is so loud and irritating during the movie, it drowns out the actual soundtrack of the dvd.
I'm going to call Sharp about it today also, as they state "not to return the set to the retailer". They better give me a good reason as to what the heck is happening here.
I haven't had much time to play with the tv, other than panicking and worrying about the stupid rattling sound. Picture-wise, the set looks pretty good. I just spent the past 2 days watching a 46'' Sony XBR2, so I wasn't overly impressed when I got my Sharp LC-37D43U set. Still very good, but nothing jaw dropping like when I saw HD for the first time with my original Sharp 26'' set. Star Wars Ep 3 does look very very good though, possibly better than on the XBR2. Oh I just remembered... the tv cabinet and cosmetic design of the set is gorgeous! I've seen the set at stores, and in pictures online, and it really didn't impress me. I thought the two-tone look made the black look off-black, and close to brownish in colour, everytime I saw it in person or online. When I got mine home though, I was completely impressed with its look. Very well done, and very nice looking glossy black everywhere.
Anyways, thanks for reading. Happy viewings everyone.
