I have posted this response dozens of times since visiting this site:
If it just fails to turn on, the main power supply is probably at fault and without some technical background and a couple of test instruments, you will not be able to do the repair yourself. 
What you can do though is; unplug the set, let it stand overnight or at least several hours, remove the back panel and look for a separate board with mostly larger components on it; it will have a ferrite core transformer on it and several larger capacitors which are cylindrical and mounted vertically to the board.

 
Before touching anything inside, especially on that board, allow several hours to be safe since the larger capacitors can hold a painful voltage charge for some hours.  
 
If you see signs of overheating such as discoloration of the board material, it may not be repairable but if you can find a part number on the board, you might be able to buy the power supply and install it yourself.
If there are no signs of heat damage to the board, there may be companies offering to repair it as a subassembly instead of repairing the whole set which could be much more expensive.
If you choose to replace or have it done, the power supply still may not be at fault since most are capable of switching on and off if a downstream problem is causing an overload.

TROUBLE SHOOT LC-60E78UN TV


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

I have a Sharpe LC-60LE600U. The power went out on it. What power board works on that TV. The lower left hand corner has a black spot, too. Will the power board fix the black spot as well?


Power Board wil not fix black spot. the spot is caused from lamp failure. Led strip has at least one LED out, takes out the whole section. Go into trouble shooting to verify. After so many start ups with the black spot, the TV will not turn on in TV mode.

Why does it have six red blinking lights?


Hi Tim
In my opinion
No... the LED's are doing their job
Error reporting
Modern TV's are computers and try to indicate where a problem exists.
Does it need a Firmware upgrade?

Red green or orange lights are on or blinking on the TV
