Sharp Aquos Power Supply

Online research suggests the power supply on my Sharp LC-46D64U is bad (power LED blinks 2x/sec and OPC LED blinks 1x/sec). Power supply p/n is DPS-304BP-1 (a/k/a RDENCA235WJQZ).

The symptoms are when you plug in A/C, the relay clicks once and then the front panel LED blink. Activating the power switch on the set results in same behavior (i.e. relay click & LED blink).

Visual inspection of the p/s board does not show signs of any failed/damaged components, hot spots, cold solder joints, or smell - it looks just fine. I'm out of warranty.

I would like to confirm the p/s is indeed the problem before buying a replacement. I haven't found any schematics/technical info to aid in troublshooting. Voltage measurements indicate the primary side is getting good 120VAC from the DC-2541-1A (a/k/a RUNTKA317WJQZ) board & I've measured some 5VDC and 3VDC points on the secondary side, but I have not found any 15VDC or 60V or any other voltages (which I suppose could be due to the fact p/s is not "starting" up).

Does anyone have a schematic or technical information or suggestions on troubleshooting the p/s so I can purchase a replacement board with confidence?

Thanks.

    I ended up swapping out the power supply board back in Feb. and it's worked just fine ever since. Disappointed this was a problem after only 16 months of use.

SOURCE: power supply bad on Sharp Aquos LC - bad board - schematic to ID?

Buy the green light going on means Standby is ok. Next, would be to locate the plug coming from the main board to the power supply and find the post that says PO which means power on. With your meter on that post, press the power button as see if the reading goes High, if it does then the main board is able to turn on the power supply. Next, find the plug on the power supply that goes to the inverter( the long board on the side) remove it and see if you have 24 volts coming out of the power supply when you press the power. If you do, then the inverter board is bad, if you don't have 24 v, then the power supply is bad. There are NO diagrams available for these set other than a flow chart if you can find one. A regular svc tech does'nt need a manual for these anyway.

Let me know how you do Kathy ?

it sounds like it may be a capacitor problem and it may be linked to the electricity you receive adding a battery back up of sufficient quality will smooth out the electric current and also **** up the spikes from the power and light company. I have seen many aquas suffer from capacitor failure but it may be an expensive fix.
check your electric output and see if it can handle the load for this tv.

Lc-46d64u


How many times per second does the POWER led blink? (dont worry about the OPC).

1x per second (constant, steady blink) = bad inverter/lamps
2x per second = bad power supply
3x per second = bad main board

There isnt really anything you can do to fix it yourself, youd have to call Sharp to locate a local service center.

No POWER


How many times does the POWER led flash per second? (Dont worry about the OPC).

1x (steady constant blink) = Lamps or inverters
2x = Power Supply
3x = Main Unit

If i am reading it correctly, looks like the POWER led is flashing 2x, which means it is a power supply failure. Either way, your TV needs to have a board replaced, there isn't anything you can do to fix it yourself. Try locating your local sharp authorized service center to repair your TV (1-800-237-4277)

How many times does the POWER led blink per sec? (dont worry about the OPC)

2x = power supply (not as expensive to fix)
3x = Main board (expensive to fix)
