When you remove the back of the set. You will fine a couple of caps on the power supply board that are bulged and they need to be replace, or you can buy a new power supply at www.partstore.com. If you want to just purchase the caps, you can get them at www.mcmelectronics.com

Joe -- Could a child playing with the TV controls have caused this power supply problem?

Is it safe for a non-technician to make this repair?

Thanks for your help.

Power light blinks twice. OPC light blinks five times.

 

TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 7 years ago

 

OK according to Sharps basic trouble shooting for aquos the problem is either LCD control board (tcon)or the LCD panel itself you can see this for yourself here

 

www.mediafire.com/infotechfile its under D44 troubleshooting

 

I'm not sure if the LCD control board is available for this model as its usually a integral part of the display.......assuming the code is right

 

I have on many occasions found the blink code to be wrong unfortunately only a sharp dealer can tell you otherwise

 

Please let me know if you need more information

Hello

 

Sharp are not easy I'm afraid at the best of times

 

The options you have are to buy boards on the fly starting with mainboard but if this turns out to be ok your left with a very expensive board as an ornament, you see just about anything in the set can make it trip, they tried to get the blinking lights to help but I find its inaccurate

 

 

Ring Sharp on 1-800-237 4277

Thanks -- I called Sharp too, and they said the blinking lights mean the TV has gone into "safe mode" and I need a technician to get it back to normal. I think a visiting grandchild must have tripped it -- just playing around with the remote.

I guess I'll have to invest in a new TV, since I don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on a "maybe" repair. What a shame!

I won't buy another Sharp. Any recommendations?

TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 7 years ago

Hello

 

Stick with the major brands Sony/Hitachi/Samsung/Panansonic the secret is to get as much extended warrenty as you can, you need to look around at retailers selling sets with 5 years warrenty for free as part of the package because all this no product LCD/Plasma/LED/is very prone to failure within 2 years
