Question about Sharp Aquos LC-45GD4U 45 in. LCD HDTV
My friend has a 37" Sharp D64 and when we turn it on the Power and the OPC lights in the bottom right hand of the TV begin to flash. The TV will proceed to turn on for a split second with audio but no picture. Then the TV shuts itself off. We cannot seem to get it to turn on and the TV is brand new from Best Buy in Ottawa.
I'm going to guess your friend's model is LC-37D64U. ( 37" screen; D64 series)
It's sounding like a power supply problem for the LCD screen. It's somewhat common problem for big LCD screens. But, too early for your friend to be having this problem with the TV.
I would have your friend use the warranty at this point. Last thing you want to do is void the warranty by opening up the TV.
I would first try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 mins so it can reset. Then, try turning it ON again.
If that doesn't work, it warranty time.
If your friend just bought it, have them exchange the TV for another one. I wouldn't want a TV that has problems that just came out of the box. The Sharp TV only has a 1 year warranty. Upgrade warranty life if possible. A repair for a problem like this would cost about $100 for someone to look at it; and $200 to $400 for the part at a TV repair shop.

Please return it to Best Buy ASAP! Toshiba is having there problems as we've seen in the service industry lately.
