    I am having similar trouble with my 32" Sharp. On most occasions when you try to turn it on it just doesn't respond. If you unplug it and plug it back in it starts, you hear the channel and before the screen lights up it shuts itself down. I thought perhaps it was something electrical so I used a different power source (socket) but got the same results.

There are a few things that can cause that. Pretty much the TV is shutting itself down because it recognizes and issue in one of a few circuits. If you're getting a flash and then it cuts off my first guess would be a vertical issue. May be best to take it in to a repair center and have them take a look at it. Shouldn't be any more than $20 for a diagnostic check on the unit.

Mom's Sharp Aquos TV no sound or picture there is a green flashing light where the power light is I heled the volume up and channel down while the TV was unplugged. plugged it back in sound no picture

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.
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

Standby light continuously flashes with no picture or sound

count the number of blinks; you may have to unplug the set and try to turn on again--if it does not blink in a sequence(3 blinks, a pause etc) the set is in shutdown and many things can cause this.

Sony Bravia KDL 46", no picture, standby light blinks 4 times

Since the TV is still receiving power, the problem is going to be with the TV's mainboard.  After you unplugged the TV and plugged it back in, you said the power light went out again, so I assume the standby light wasn't flashing again?  The flashing standby light is indicating an error code so my suggestion is to contact Sony for service options regardless if there is a warranty or not because service is the only solution to this situation.  Don't forget to provide them the error code or 4 flashes repeating.

Toshiba 43A61 - No Picture, no sound

If your set all of a sudden won't come on, e.g., the screen is blank, but the LED on the under the screen next to the on/off switch keeps flashing, then there may be an internal fault on the set that needs to be reset.
To force the reset, try this:
  • Unplug the set and wait a few seconds
  • Replug and see if the video returns
Whenever the set senses an internal fault through its monitoring circuitry, it essentially shuts down the set. The flashing LED provides the indication that a fault has been detected. Removing power to the set resets the monitoring circuitry. When plugged back in, the circuitry again does a check of the system. If it finds that there truly is a problem, then the set is shut down and the LED will again flash. In this case, you need to call a service tech. Most of the time, however, the unplug/replug routine is enough to get the set up and running.

Power light flashing/ no picture

I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.
