When you turn on power you hear a click and the green light turns on. Three seconds later you hear another click and the green light turns off.


MOST OF THESE SETS HAVE A SELF DIAGNOSTIC:

UNPLUG TV AND THEN PLUG BACK IN---TURN ON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ONFOR A MOMENT AND GOES OFF.

PRESS AND HOLD "device"(input) and"menu" buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release bothtogether.


Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem


******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protectthe Convergence IC or IC's is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergenceIC and shut down.


SET WILL REPEAT BLINK ERROR CODE UP TO 5 TIMES ANDTHEN TO GET IT TO REPEAT MORE YOUHAVE TO UNPLUG SET AND TRY TO TURN ON AGAIN.


IF IT IS 2 AND THEN 2---USUALLY
CONVERGENCE CIRCUIT PROBLEM

let me know what you find--hope that you find 2 blinks, a pause and twoblinks--this is the most common and easiest to fix.

Let me know what you find and I will assist you.

Tv turns on for a few seconds then shuts off and the blue power light blinks.


Mine never turned on but the blue power light would blink.I disconnected the upper y buffer and got light on the bottom half of screen and the blinking stopped.I have the upper board on order and I think this will fix my problem.There is a blink code somewhere,just count how many blinks.Start pulling connectors from power supply and when it quits blinking you've found the one,could also be the power supply with bad cap.

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.

Turn on power hear it come on then turns it self off and power light starts blinking


Blinking light may be a error code----look closely and see if blinks in a sequence---3 blinks, pause 3 blinks or 5,5.

The blinking light means set is in protective shutdown, Do you see a sequence to the blinks?

I am here to help.

If needed, unplug set and plug it back in and try to turn on---watch for likely error code.

My linksys wrt160n wireless router light is blinking


Welcome to FixYa
Indication of Router Lights:
  • Power light blinks. If LAN or WAN cable is plugged in, their respective lights will flash on activity.
  • Power light turns off for several seconds.
  • All lights, except power light, turn on and then off.
  • Power light blinks slowly, then faster, and WLAN light will turn on.
  • Once Power light and WLAN light are on solid, the router is fully rebooted.

A working router should show solid green power light. upgrade the firmware of the router.
