    Episode 6

    A local freight company called me Friday. I got the message to late and was able to get a hold of them today. They said my new TV is due in and scheduled for delivery on Wed 8-05. They are delivering my TV and Picking up my old TV. I was wondering how Sharp expected me to ship the old TV back. Sounds like they already have that scheduled as well. :rock:

    Maybe they have replaced several TVs so far and someone stiffed them on the old unit already

    As far as I could tell, my TV was a brand new 85UN, sealed in factory box. Everything was packaged as if it were new, I even got the new sealed generic remote batteries that will be dead by next week...lol The delivery company mounted and set-up my new TV. They also packed up and shipped my old TV back to Sharp. A refurbished TV of the same model is going to have the same issues, I would definitely insist on a different model TV that does not have known issues with any item you are currently having conflicts with. If a refurbished TV of the same model fixes the problem, then whatever part having the problems should be something that can be fixed by your local repair technician and save you the time, save the company the shipping costs.

    I think DarkLord deserves a ****ing medal and a half for all the work done on this issue with the Sharp TV. I'll give you some rep at least...

    They'll make you chase your tail for a while most likely, and you'll have to keep calling, and calling, and calling, and calling.. it's fun :(

    They replaced it with an Aquos line, I forget which model though, it's very nice though.

    I refused to let technicians come out, I told them I'm busy 8am till 6pm Mon-Fri, if they want to send someone after that or during the weekend, then that's fine. Naturally they said no thanks and opted to swap the TV.

    Hi everyone, i guess i'm now in the same boat. After 5 months of reading this (at first i decided to keep it as it was), but this glitch is getting me crazy every time I play, plus now a horizontal line of death pixels appeared, I have to contact sharp to get a replacement, hopefully I'll get an aquos given I too have the xbox problem....
