    First solution didn't work.

    Second solution simply indicates a TV repairman is necessary unless I want to take the set apart myself.

    I unplugged the TV overnight. The next morning it went past the "wait" and showed the input screen when I pressed the remote. After selecting the appropriate input the set worked. Thanks.

I am sorry to hear you are having this type of trouble. It is nothing you are doing wrong.
From what you have typed....you most likely have a poor solder connection or an essential chip needs resetting.

First try a hard rest by unplugging the unit for a minimum of 6 hours, then plug it back in and try again...quite often this removes the "quirks" these LCD's have.

If this doesn't work, then by the way you have described it getting worse it may very well be a poor solder connection...

Over time the solder connections can develop a hairline fracture . This is what I believe is happening to your TV somewhere in the power supply or video board if the reset fails to remedy your problem.

When this continues to happen it can create a small arc and surge voltage into surrounding components and actually damage them so it is best to have the problem resolved before components are damaged such as a capacitor or other essential component in your television.

This would be then be a component or board failure which must be addressed by a professional technician.

Unfortunately your warranty is only good for one year so the a repair cost would not be covered by Sharp if older than 1 year.

The board diagnosis and repair of a problem like this usually runs between about $200-$350 depending on your location, extent of damage, and will be on the higher end if you call for in home service.

TV repairs should only be attempted by trained individuals - as there are potentially lethal amounts of electricity stored inside which needs proper discharge before repair work can begin.

I HIGHLY reccomend letting a professional diagnose your set.

Unfortunately, there is no simple end-user fix.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

  • Unplug the AC power cord of TV set to force power off.
  • While holding down the “VOL (–)” and “INPUT” keys on the set at once, plug in the AC power cord to turn on the set. This should hopefully clear the problem.

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 shud u wish to do the work on this urself... be sure to unplug everything and venture inside the tv.... look for loose solder connections and burnt out caps...... the capacitors usually have the specifications on them.. remove the burnt out ones and replace with new ones.... soldering inside the tv is not an easy job... so if ur really not sure abt what u need to do.. get a local repair guy... LCD tvs are very costly and we wud rather have a pro do the work for us...
      I hope this helps.
      if u feel i ve been of help ... kindly rate my service..... good luck and stay safe....

    I would have to say that you have bad capacitors in the power supply.Open the back of the TV,and look at the can shaped items called capacitors on the board with the power cord.If any of them have the tops,or bottoms bulged out,they need to be replaced.This should get it working again.I hope this helps.If you have any questions,please let me know.Thank You very much!

    Power light blinking


    if the power just shuts off for no reason when booted up,it may be the power source is on the way out ,it will work for a while, but keeps crashing, thats the first thing to replace
    also make sure you hear the fans working
    if it overheats it has a safty shutoff ,
    you can also use a house fan, aimed inside the computer while open, to rule out power source
