Question about Sharp Televison & Video
When I turn the power on my TV the red power light blinks and tv does not turn on
I don't know what happened turned on my tv got no picture just a red blinking power light. Can anyone help me?
SOURCE: Sharp LC-37HV4U not turning on
hold down the input button and volume - while the MAIN POWER BUTTON IS OFF. Then turn on the main power button while those are held down, the light on the tv & avc box will turn green, then immediately let off the 2 buttons and press volume +. Next step is to repeat the process about 20-40 times & the TV WILL WORK!. I have read that this may have something to do with the energy star compliant commads that can changed through the serial port.

SOURCE: Blinking green power light
I had the same issue after one month of use. A repair cie came and fixed the problem. It appenned to a neon connector that wasn't properly plugged in the TV.
The Technician explained to me that m TV had 16 neons and a sort of controler for those. Often - from factory - a cable is not sitting properly in its position...
Since I have no problem.

Right now your TV is in " Protection Mode " because of a failed part inside. The blinking red light is a error trouble code. Only someone with the actual Service Manual for the TV will know what the code means. Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. The most common board to go bad is the Backlight Inverter Board. It what supplies power to the screen. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptoms.
You have a few choices:
1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 - 45 minutes so the TV can discharge and reset itself.
2. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
3. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you red light blinking codes, circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.
4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.
I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.
