Customer: Sharp Aquis . No sound or picture. Has been a good TY in the past. No problems
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: No. other than the power light nothing is working
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: We were having a storm

Hi , I`m Jack , I will be helping you today
Can you please send me a reply when you are ready to proceed ?
Note that I need time to type and research for parts and info if needed so don't be surprised if there are delays between replies
Also ,Can you please give me the tv`s model number written on the back cover ?

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

When you say it is getting power , does it mean you have the power light at the front ?

Does it still respond to the power on command even though it has no picture ?

Did this problem happen all of sudden or gradually got worse over the last few weeks ?
