Sorry, haven't been on this in a while. I was going to suggest trying another USB key (they recommend using a generic one that doesn't try to force the host to use its encryption software and crap) or check your formatting (FAT16).I called Sharp support. The customer rep told me to try to load the unextracted firmware update file. That did not work and froze the TV. I was able to power down, remove the USB and continue viewing. I then called Sharp support back and they could not figure it out, I have to call Sharp Canada Support and get a tech out here.
Has anyone else had the update not go through from when the screen goes blank? It seems that it can see the updated file, but cannot go through the update process.
I tried to do this update (from UO708071 to UO709111) and it seemed like it was doing it, but the version remained at 071. It did the checking, showed me my current version and the update, the screen went blank and then live TV came on. No message about successful update.
Hey Gabagoo,OK I am new to TV's that do everything under the sun so be gentle with me..lol I purchased the new Sharp 42" on boxing day. 1) I have noticed with hockey for 1 that I did see a jittery effect, but it was not on the game play but a side camera near the boards after the play. I found it a bit annoying, is this a problem with the set?
2) I have a high def box hooked up and I also have my wifes beloved PVR non high def hooked up on a different input. (I bought it 6 months ago so we are stuck with it for the time being) It all works fine. I do experience one problem though, on switching the inputs from high def to the pvr box sometimes the screen goes nuts and you get a green collage of pixels. If I try to go back to the original input I came from it happens in there too. I found the way to solve it was to turn the set off and wait to hear a click from within the set, then everything is OK to go again.
3) Just how do you hook up a laptop to the TV. What connection do I use to go out of the computer and which to go into the tv. Is it any good for lets say a golf sim game?
Look forward to your help here. Remember be gentle I am getting to old to learn new stuff lol
