In order to help with this, can you please post the model number (should be KV-27xxx) and count the number of blinks of the standby light? This standby should be blinking a repeated pattern. That will tell me the circuit in which a problem was detected.

    Thanks for providing the model number. Can you check to see if the standby light blinks a repeating count? Also, is there sound at all?



  • ABRsvcs Oct 15, 2008

    The 4 blinks usually means a vertical deflection problem. Look inside for a small flat IC attached to a heatsink. It willbe marked LA7837 or something similar and have about 11 pins. That should be the vertical IC. Resolder the pins first. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the IC.

    Keep me posted.

Sharp remote control not working

Ok, looks like this TV works on MS Windows. Anyone who has had a computer 5 years back knows that when Windows has a problem, there is only one sure-shot solution.


Try this with your TV. Completely unplug it and leave for one minute. Start again. Voila ! Remote works flawlessly.
