Hello, First- sorry you're having problems. Secondly, on Sharp sets- that blinking light indicates a hardware failure in the TV, and it will blink a "Code" inmost cases. That said, please carefully check the pattern of that blinking light and let me know what it's doing (for example: 2 long blinks, pause 1 short blink- repeat).

2 long blinks on one blink on other
Expert:  Aric replied 5 months ago.
Those LED's are labeled- one is OPC and the other is power. Which one blinks what?
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
if I remember correctly the power blinked twice and opc blinked once
Expert:  Aric replied 5 months ago.
Okay, the code is specific- so if you're off at all it completely changes what has failed in the set. Are you there with the TV right now and looking to dig into the issue? Or are you at work and posting simply asking what the possible causes are and if it's worth repairing?
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Im at work...not with the tv right now.
Expert:  Aric replied 5 months ago.
again, are you looking to try a DIY repair or asking for a repair estimate? Let me know what type of assistance you're looking for today.
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
im trying to repair the tv myself.
Expert:  Aric replied 5 months ago.
Okay then reply back when you are at the TV since it's impossible to do this while you're away from the set.
