Sharp TV LC154U

Our Sharp TV shuts down about every 5 seconds (similar to a previous writer). You suggested that the problem is either the "lamp" or "inverter". What are these items? Are they simple to replace? Where can they be purchased? THANKS!!

    Yes...sorry, model number is 15AV4U. What you have told me is what Sharp's tech told me. Thanks...I think we will just get a new TV, even thought the Sharp only lasted two years.

LC154U ?? Do you mean LC-15AV4U or LC-15SH4U ?

Either way.... if it is the back light(s) the actual lights that light up the display... you will not get these... you will need to replaced the whole LCD panel. The inverter.. on that model, I believe it is built on to the main board... and the main board would have to be fixed or replaced.

Even knowing that your tv is an older model, you can still send it to SHARP to get an estimate on repair (1-800-BESHARP). You will have to pay for shipping it to SHARP, and they will want you to pay a $50 Evaluation Fee & $30 to cover shipping unit back to you. If you choose not to repair it.. it will be shipped back to you un-repaired. if you choose to fix it... then the $50 will go towards the repair bill.

    I would be interested in the tv for parts if you are not going to fix it.

Lights flash then powers down.


Before read this, keep in mind that this is not your model and parts are not the same. This is just to let you know the steps to take. Sorry don't have the schematic for your set, but maybe this will help in checking. I'm Ex-Army myself and Veteran of OIF and OEF.::::1. (Lamp may light and go out) suspect bad lamp part # 915P020010 2. Check for 12-volts DC at J-9 connector pin 4 on the Engine Driver PCB, if missing check for an open F9A09 on the Power PCB, if it is open replace F9A09 part # 283P127060 and the Light Engine part # 939P977010 3. (Lamp may light and go out) Check for 5-volts DC at J-9 connector pin 1 and 2 on the Engine Driver PCB if low or missing check C9A37 and C9A38 both 3300 UFD 10 V on the Power PCB (part # 930B921002) 4. At power on the lamp turns on and off three times and then the unit shuts down with a red lamp LED (lamp error). Replace the Light Engine part # 939P977010 5. Lamp enable line at J14 pin 6 does not switch to 5 volts after turn on, 12 and 5 volt supplies are good. Suspect the Light Engine part # 939P977010 6. Lamp enable line at connector J14 pin 6 on the Engine Driver PCB switches to 5 volts after turn on and does go to 0-volts (low) after 5 seconds, 12 and 5 volt supplies are good. Suspect the Lamp Power PCB (ballast) part # 939P978010 7. Lamp enable line at connector J14 pin 6 on the Engine Driver PCB switches to 5 volts after turn on but does not go back to 0-volts (low) after 5 seconds, 12 and 5 volt supplies are good. Suspect the Light Engine part # 939P977010

Shuts down after 5 minutes blinks green


Once the set shuts down, wait for the unit to stop blinking. Once it stops hold in the input and menu buttons for 5 seconds. The TV will then give you an error code. A 6-1 or a 1-8 error code would indicate a bad Color wheel. Which I think is the problem you have.

Standby LED flashes red 4 times with pause then 4 times


You either have a bad fan or one of the rotation sensors mounted on one of the fans has failed. Take the back off the set and see it the main fan slightly right of center is rotating. If it is, there are two more fans, one mounted right above the lamp and another on the optical block itself. You will have to pull the optical block to check those.

Lcd sharp tv flashing green light


Try unplugging the unit and while unit is unplugged hold the volume up button and channel down buttons down and while depressing both buttons plug the unit in. Let go of the buttons and the unit should come on in the service mode. There will be a small k on the screen. With the sharp remote press the channel up button once. This should bring up a menu that will show a lamp error line. If the lamp error is = to 5 the unit is in lamp error shut down. User channel down to highlight that line and curser right arrow to highlight the lamp error #. Hit the enter button to clear the lamp errors. Now unplug the unit and let it sit for a minute and plug back in. I hope this corrects the problem. If the unit does not come on by doing this or if it does and you do not find lamp errors the power supply pcb may have been damaged by the surge.

you have the same problem I have. The problem is fixed by changing the new light bulb. The problem appears again after 1500 hours of use. You can keep buying new light bulbs or avoid it by not buying another Samsung TV.
