TV parts are only expected to work for 3-5 years. It could be the power board, or it could be a bad backlight. 500 dollar repair minimum, I suppose.

Power and Video Out


I sounds like the internal power supply board was failing and has now completely failed. What is the vintage of the TV? There was a large problem with some components used in electronics for many years.

So I had this RCA Analog TV set since 1999, and there has never been with it til now... Over the last few months, it would automatically turn off when I turn i after an 1 hr when I would be recording...


Regrettably, 15 year old tv's eventually give up entirely. Sounds like your power supply is finally giving up. Typically these tv's are not economically repairable (most repair shops wont touch them because a new tv is cheaper. Be happy you milked this set for 15 years. Pawn up some of your other extraneous stuff an purchase a $200 flat screen.

Sharp aquos will not turn on. power opc light flashing


I got a Sharp Aquos Quattron LC-60LE847U, a 60inch LED TV, I only brought it for a year and 4 months, factory only a have one year warranty. Last week when my kid try to turn on the TV, the TV power light keep repeat blinking in 2 slow and 5 fast sequence, don't know what did it mean. When I press the power button, the light will stay on for few seconds and it kept blinking after, the TV cannot turn on at all.
My kid have called the Sharp help line in US, number found in user manual, but the Canada help line are different number, it is 1-877-278-6709, they told my kid to unplug the TV, hold down the Input and the Volume down key, then plug the power back on, the TV can turn into service mode, it have a K icon on the screen, but every time I selected the menu, it went away very quick. Then the customer assistant told my kid to call service.
When I did a lot of research, every solution seems to point to the power supply, so I bought a power supply from ebay, replaced it, it does the same thing, no different at all, then I turn the TV back on in service mode, to try to do a reset from the menu, upgrade the firmware, re-seat all ribbon cables of the main board and the middle logic board (Not sure what is that board call, it is in the middle of the TV), neither way can make any different, the TV light still blinking in same sequence.
So I kept doing the research, I find out another way to reset the TV back to factory setting just by holding down the Volume up and Channel down, then plug in the TV, kept hold it down those 2 buttons until the TV came back on. TV will reset for just by doing this. Happy news, problem seems to get fixed, but not 100 %. The TV seems no problem to turn off and on after reset, but if I unplugged it, the blinking problem will come back, but if I reset it one more time, it will works again until I unplug it again. It is better than completely dead.
Then I unplug the TV, removed all ribbon cables (6 ribbon connectors), use sand paper to clean all the ribbon cable contacts, don't rub it too hard in case the cable contacts get destroy, then re-seat all the ribbon cables. After I did that, everything back to normal and my TV got fixed completely.
This seems to be my way to fix it, not sure everyone can use the same method to fix their blinking power light problem, but I hope this tips can help some people to save big buck to the Sharp service. This TV is over $2000 dollars and I brought few pair of the expensive 3D glasses, I do hope it can last longer, didn't expect it have problem already, it just less than a year and half old and even I bought the power supply to tried to fix it but I ended up didn't needed to spend any money and solved the problem.
Hope this helps.

1. the motherboard might be bad and you will need to replace it. 2. or The power supply is bad
Chances are if its making clicks the power supply is bad and you will need to replace it. Which makes sense because constantly powering the tv on and off will damage the power supply or possibly short out your motherboard. These things usually cost about 200 bucks to fix at a local tv repair store.

Tv wont stay off


Yes - a new more expensive TV that is not a throw-away model.
The problem is probably in the micro and will continue this intermittently - sometimes hot/cold can have an effect on when it has the problem. It will get worse and it will eventually need to be repaired...
Sorry for the bad news.

My 42 inch plasma wont turn back on after power cut?


Hi,
We purchased a phillips plasma 50" in july 06 and it cut on and off 5 or more times a day I called phillips customer service they told us it was due to the cable company they came out and changed the tv jack gave us a new box and tested the lines said everything was ok. The problem still kept happening got back to phillips and they sent us a flash drive to update the info in the tv. still kept happening told us it was due to tv being sensitive to power flutuations. well we are now 5mths out of warrenty and the power board blows up! phillips will not do anything to help the person I spoke with admitted we were given bad advice the bill was estimated at over $500 so if I were you if its still under warrenty make them send someone out to look at it, Reading up on phillips tv complaints this seems to be a common thing By the way phillips customer service sucks dont rely on them to help you much. good luck
