Summary: I bought a Sharp 80 Inch TV in 2013. After a couple of months, the picture went out. I had no idea why the picture went out so I called Sharp and they sent a representative to my home. The representative said that the TV had physical damage and that is not covered in the warranty.
Probem with power board. Blinking symbol with no picture. Common with Sharp.

Summary: Less than two years old and have a defective power supply board. After researching it on-line. Very common with this brand. Sharp gets a thumbs down with us. Blinking sharp symbol at the bottom of the TV with no picture. BE WARNED.
Summary: I was pleased with this unit and excited with the 3D...bought four sets of glasses and was patting myself on the back for a great choice. This week my daughter was having a sleepover and when I turned the unit on for a movie there is a large striped area with no image in the center of the screen.
Summary: I did not like this tv. Could not find a good adjustment. Looks like a cheap soap opera. Not happy. Returned it and bought a panasonic plasma. 100 times better. Also, sound would cut out some times. And every now and then the sound would stop.
Summary: 60 days after purchasing this TV, it developed a vertical blue line (defective panel) -- no big deal, I understand manufacturing defects happen. It's been more than a month since I submitted a warranty claim and I'm still waiting on a replacement TV.
