Question about Sharp Televison & Video
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/

If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.
Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box
Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.
The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.
1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.
2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.
If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.
If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.
If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual
If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

On LCD Pay particular attention at inverter and power board, power board can be inspected looking for bulged or leaking capacitors, then tested with a multimeter. The inverter is more difficult to test , there is need to read voltages, should be done by a tech. Also the LCD controller board can cause same problem
On Plasma, test Sustain (Ysus/Zsus) / Buffer boards , cables to plasma, digital board and power board.
On Rear Projection : check lamp, lamp ballast, power board, and convergence.
On CRT TVs, check ballast , flyback transformer, CRT, Tuner, Convergence.

Sadly to the end I can now explain the "problem" of my question by myself ...
Because I'm was not sure if I can handle the "problem" by myself I gave the Screen to a technican at our City with all the Information I found until this point (By the way my suspicion was the defect of something at the power supply unit). Two days later he gave me a call with the information about the error: An error at the power supply unit - spare parts => 50€, Work => 200€).
Unhappily im not yet got at soldering on screens, but for 250€ i would have made a good course for this (and if I can establish i will learn it).
So now again a bit more objectively:
Error / Problem:
TV - Step 1: Power Off
TV - Step 2: Stand-By
TV - Step 3: Power-On
TV - Step 4: Short flashing picture
TV - Step 5: Reverse to Step 1
1. Find the defect Fuse/Safe/...
2. Buy the Spare part at eshop2.euras.com
3. Change the parts -> et voilá
Hopefully I could have been a little help for someone.
With kind regards,

if you can do soldering work, replace two 1000uF10v bulging capacitor with 1000uF 16v or 25v in powersupply board. you will save $200.

yes thats is a common problem for all flat tv not only
sharp ;/ first theres is capacitor in power supply
you probly have few one there blow up and it could bee from the power section of your back light circuit
a good technician can fix that easy
