Hi, my Sharp t.v power button has been pushed inside of console, i was using a plastic hair pin to push the inside button to turn it on and off. But, the other day I went to turn it on and it flashed on and back off. Now it will not turn on. Is there anything I can do myself to fix it?
I would assume that the flash you described was the fuse inside blowing. If so, it's likely if you replace the fuse, it will work again.

A side note: I'd recommend that you purchase a replacement button for that TV. if you ever have any toddlers visit you, it's bound to get something inserted in it, and it could be dangerous if a stray finger gets stuck in there.
