Sound goes "static-y"
on February 1, 2010
I didn't want a big surround sound system, so I love the size and ease of hook-up for the sound bar. However, the speaker intermittently sounds fuzzy or "static-y" and has to be turned off. I haven't figured out what causes this to happen. It will work fine for some time, but suddenly goes bad. Sharp has authorized sending the sound bar in to see if they can figure it out, so they are working with me on the problem.
UPDATE: Got the sound bar back from the Sharp Repair Center. It didn't act up for them, so they didn't fix it. (I don't know how long they left it on?? It's an intermittant problem. Maybe they didn't wait long enough.) I hooked it up again and after about an hour, the sound went bad. When it's bad, it has to be turned off; you can't understand a thing from the tv audio - just fuzzy noises. I contacted Sharp customer service again via email; waiting for response. Since I like the size of the sound bar (and the sound is fine when it works), I hope they'll exchange it for a new one. If not, it's going to have to go back.
