Customer Question

I have a Sharp 52le810 maybe 4 years old. It was giving me troubles to turn on. The backlight willc ome on but no input. If I power it down and up several times it will start. I decided to open it and see if there was something lose or bad. I unpluged the main board and turned the power on forgetting about the plug. It did not pay attention to indicator. But after sometime IS aw that indicator flashes one short one long. I turned off the tV, plugged the connector and turned the tv on. same flashing. I tried the combination VOL- input-Power but nothing happensi t continues flashing. my control buttons on tv are touch sensitive, may be this is why I can not reset it. Whatc an I do?

That blinks code points to a backlight inverter failure and the original problem was weak vented capacitors on the power board .
