Question about Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. LCD HDTV

No picture, but power is on...

The TV was on for about 6 hours when it suddenly turned itself off, then turned itself back on, showing the green power light, but no picture.  In a few seconds, the power and OPC lights blink green once, then the power light blinks green twice.  It continues that pattern.

Re: No picture, but power is on...

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)

Re: No picture, but power is on...

Hi I have sort of the same problem with my sharp TV. It turns off when I play on my xbox elite. Sharp have been out 3 time and replaced a board in the back but insist there in no compatibility problem. I suggest you call sharp and maybe they will admit there is a problem with the TV they make.

My LG HD tv screen suddenly went green. sound is

I disagree with info provided, if screen of your LG lcd tv becomes green that means inverter board is working and lcd tv does not have convergence ICs.
Please unplug tv from ac wall socket for minute to get it reset, replug back in and turn it On and check its picture.
If still showing green screen then change input source with remote, if tv shows same green screen on all inputs that means its either lcd panel problem or digital signal processor got bad loacted on main board. Local tv repairman is needed to confirm and fix it.

Green power light comes on, the turns right back off. No picture. Please help

I'm not sure what TV model you have. But, thing I can tell you is the most common problem.
Most of the time with flat panel TVs, the power supply for the screen fails. And the TV normally turns itself off to protect other parts in the TV from being damaged. Basically " Protection Mode".

You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 minutes so the TV can reset itself; then try again turning it on. If it doesn't work after that, it's time for the TV repair shop.
