Question about Sharp Aquos LC-20B4U-S 20 in. LCD EDTV

1 Answer

Wont power up

The power went off in my house for a few minutes. Everything is working fine except for my Sharp Aquos. Checked the power supply cord with a mulitmeter and that seems fine. I wanted to open the back and see if it's a fuse, but since I don't know anything about Televisions, I'm afraid I'll touch something and electrocute myself. Any idea or advice? Can I safely open the back of the Lcd without killing myself?
Thanks!

    Contrary to popular belief, the new LCD's are much simpler and much easier to work on than the old TV's, they're also much less dangerous. There should be a few screws on the back and pressure clips on the perimeter of the screen. That should free the back cover and you can take a look inside. There should be a 120VAC fuse right off the cord and a few fuses on the boards themselves.

    There really should be only 3/4 parts in there:
    Power supply Board
    Tuner/sound/amplifier/speaker
    LVDS/Display board
    Inverter (runs the backlights, this is the only place to be worried about high voltage, it will discharge extremely quickly after disconnecting it, just watch out when it's powered on)

If you open the TV set and find that the fuse is blown, it is possible that there is a defect in one of the power supplies. It is possible that the fault is the main power supply or a backplane supply.

When replacing the fuse and if it blows again, this means that there is a short. The cause of the short must be serviced to return the set to normal operation.

If it is not doing anything, pitch black, might be the power supply. In any case, if you don't have the technical testing equipmente, there is not much you can do about a TV not turning on, except to take it to an authorized repair shop or call service to home

I had a similar problem. Fleeting video, then audio only for few seconds and then nothing except the green power LED blinking on and off.
I changed the power inverter board, backlight inverter boards and power supply board but still the problem is not gone.

Just 18 month old TV and out of warranty.
