Customer Question

I have a Sharp Flat screen tv that no longer responds to the directv remote. It also doesn't turn on with its own remote. I changed out the batteries and n difference. The power light is on and after a couple of minutes it's flashes along with the OPC light. Is it possible that it was hit by lightning?

Hello, Are you saying the TV does not turn on even with the power button on the set itself?

Additionally, what is the model number off of the back of the set?

Also, the power light- and OPC lights, can you please check the number of blinks of each one and reply back with that (for example 2 blinks power per every 5 blinks OPC, etc.)?
