Got a heat related issue likely on main signal board---might be able to localize it (suspect a flat pack chip) with a hair dryer to heat the board just a bit.

SOURCE: sharp aquos lc26sh12u no menu screen appears

as you have a good screen, I would check ebay for the display controllers as there are so many available after shipment drops and kids with hard toys.
what you have been troubleshooting so far is analog , now its likely a digital issue , all you can look for is the the cpu is running,
is it getting the 5v + and the say 20 or so volts.

SOURCE: when i turn my tv on the screen flashes digital then turns off

Basically, the TV is trying to power up the screen. If it fail to do so, the TV will automatically turn itself off to protect other part from being damaged inside. The problem is going to be the Backlight Inverter Board. It's the circuit board that supplies power to the screen. You can usually find a replacement board at a good price at

I had an LG 37" LCD that did this to me. Turned out to be bad solder joints on the side button board. Just reflowed and it starting working fine.

But now that I think about, I had another set do the same thing, only it wasn't the button board. I had to upgrade the TV's firmware via the USB service port. Just needed a USB flash drive and downloaded the firmware from the mfg's website. There were easy to follow instructions there too!

SOURCE: remote wont work and can't acess menu with tv

Turn your Sony Bravia on by pushing either the power button on the front of the TV or the power button on the remote control, which is located in the upper right corner of the remote.

  • 2 Press and hold the "up arrow" button on the remote control. The up arrow button is located in the middle of the remote, to the left of the "Input" button and below the "Picture" button.
  • 3 Press the power button on the TV while still holding down the up arrow button. The TV will turn off and then turn itself back on.
  • 4 Release the up arrow button. Once the TV turns itself back on, it will restore your Sony Bravia to its factory settings.

    Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

    My emerson 20 inch flat screen tv is encased in a dog house for outdoor use. I can't get to the back to see the model number and I want to buy a remote control for it. Is there a universal emerson...

    You should be okay just buying any generic universal remote. Any remote requires programming to work with a specific TV, but universal remotes are easily programmable. The instructions included with the universal remote will detail how you program that remote to work with your TV (usually along the lines of simply putting it in programming mode, and pressing the power button until it turns your TV off, and then locking it in)
