Its most likely a blown capacitor. It can be replaced relatively easily. I had the same issue.

My 3 year old Sanyo DP50747 tv quit, and now won't come on at all!

Possible failure of the main power supply for the circuit. If you are equipped and have the tech to probe then you can check on the SMPS- switch mode power supply - unit of the TV.

My 6842pe does not turn on. when I turn on it goes green light for couple of seconds and then red light

Hopefully only your power supply is to blame. Then you can repair it or get it repaired for a little more than $150 or get it replaced for about twice as much plus the cost of labor. If you or a repair person start testing the boards and see that one or more of them have also failed then the cost of parts and labor will go up. It looks like Encompass Parts has parts still available for this television and the power supply is $194.

Good morning, My tv is only 3 1/2 years old. It just stop working, I changed the batteries in the remote and still won t work, I will try to turn it on, it comes on for about 2 seconds then goes off...

Hi, there must be something wrong in the power supply circuit, usually because of bad or off value components, if the TV actually gets a picture and cutts off, the power supply could be the circuit to suspect, if the tv does not give a picture, it only does the click and the power light turns on but nothing else happens, there could be something else wrong besides the power supply circuit.

I have a Sharp LC-32D44E LCD TV. Purchased Oct 08. In July 09 when switched on, the power light showed green for about 20 seconds and then went into standby mode. Fault fixed by Sharp, and engineer stated...

The problem may be in any three things.No 1: Internal power supply.No 2: The video section.No 3: IFT (Intermediate Frequency Transformer).
Solve:Check all the section one by one and find out where the fault lies.Then repaier the faulty components.
