I've read online that upgrading to the latest firmware sometimes resolves this issue. That's kind of shooting in the dark though - I personally would not feel completely confident that a FW flash would actually resolve the issue (as it could still be lurking beneath somewhere, waiting to surface again). If you have no warranty, then the FW flash is not a bad option. It's relatively easy and virtually impossible to screw up!

If you're still under warranty, then I imagine you've figured out by now that you'll need to contact Sharp to fix this issue. Mine was luckily under the extended (15-month) factory warranty when this first happened to me a few weeks ago. I was 13+ months out from date of purchase. Sharp support confirmed today that a tech needed to come out for an all-day appointment next week to troubleshoot the TV. Thank goodness for the extra 3 month warranty I got when signing up for the Aquos Advantage club! Otherwise, my $3400 investment might have cost me at least $700-$800 to fix - only a year out from purchase!

I'll post the root cause once the Sharp tech has left my place later this coming week, so a root cause can be identified. There's no guarantee, however, that my root cause will be the same as yours - despite the fact that I am also getting three sets of clicks - there is no guarantee that we have the same issue!

Good luck!

Do a hard reset to this set, and check. To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If it do not help you, make sure that the main board is faulty. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience. If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty

Set up only visible for 2 seconds, then black - Aquous lc-37d43u


Unfortunately I can promise you that you CANNOT repair this. Your power and opc lights coming on, but the tv is not coming on. That is a issue within the tv. Give sharp a call and they will have somebody come fix your tv free of charge, if they cant fix it, they will replace it for free. That is the only thing you can do. Sorry bro
