Tv shutting off

My tv is just keeps shutting off on it's own. the power and opc button is blinking. i can't get the tv to stay own. what is the problem?

  1. Looks like we all got caught in the BUYER BEWARE scheme. After researching for a QUALITY HD TV that Sharp Aquos is known for, we also bought this so-called gem of technology. Two weeks ago we purchased our tv thru a retailer. It lasted 5 days before it shut down completely ( flashing power and opc lights). We thought it was probably a defective set so we called the store to see if we could replace it with a new one. They obliged and so we brought home the new set (same brand ), hooked it up, turned it on and were satisfied for one day untill...................BAM! Watching MLB Innings, power shuts down after one day with a brand new tv set.( 2nd in two weeks). Ridiculous!!!!! We as consumers not only want quality but also satisfaction from a company that cares about their customers. After reviewing these people with the same problem as mine, its unfortunate that this company can't fix this solution. STAY AWAY FROM SHARP LCD TV'S!!!

It sounds like it may be a capacitor problem and it may be linked to the electricity you receive adding a battery back up of sufficient quality will smooth out the electric current and also **** up the spikes from the power and light company. I have seen many aquas suffer from capacitor failure but it may be an expensive fix.
check your electric output and see if it can handle the load for this tv.

How many times per second does the POWER led blink? (dont worry about the OPC).

1x per second (constant, steady blink) = bad inverter/lamps
2x per second = bad power supply
3x per second = bad main board

You can buy the parts online and fix if yourself!!

TV turns on screen comes up just fine but won't stay on. What does the power button blinking twice and the OPC button blinking 3 times mean?


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.

So when i turn on my sharp hd it turns off then the opc light comes on! Then the power light and opc light keep flashing!! Alls i want 4 it to work? Plz help


The television has gone into a coma. It is going to need to be serviced or replaced. The blinking code is a pattern. If you look at the power light and the opc light separately and independently, you can acquire the blinking pattern. Cover opc and look at power only. Note how many times it is blinking before it pauses. It might just blink steadily. Next cover power and look at opc alone. Note how many times it blinks before it pauses.

Depending on which model you have it might work if you leave the television unplugged overnight. The next day plug the television back in and wait for the blinking to start. Hold down the power button on the side of the television until the light stops blinking and turns red (usually right away). Let go. Press and release the power button once more and the light should turn orangish and then green. The television should turn on.

You can call Sharp and have a case file created and try and INIT with the customer service representative.

Just take it back, and if they will only do an exchange, test the new one before it leaves the store. If you get to change models, Google it with 'complaint' or 'repair' in the search before you take it. Under no circumstances let them try to fix it.
