Question about Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Sharp Aquos LC42D62U with blank black screen, good sound, power light steady green, OPC light steady green on. Tried turning on and off multiple times. Tried unplugging everything and plugging back in, left everything unplugged overnight. Nothing seems to fix the problem, the screen stays blank. The unit is several years old, with no warranty. I have done some simple electonics work such as putting memory expansion cards in a labtop and removing hard drives. Is there something I can do to fix it?

    Tim, is it the Video card or the labor that is expensive? Do you think a repairman could use a salvaged card to reduce the cost or is it just too costly due to the time and labor involved?



    Thanks,

    Denise

Unfortunately not really, it is the video board of the LCD that has failed, it is a major repair to say the least. You can check with a local repair shop to estimate the repair, but it will be spendy :(. I'm so sorry about the bad news there, but that's definitely what it is. If you happened to purchase the TV with a major credit card (not a debit card) there is a good chance it may still be under the free extended warranty most credit cards place on electronics. Please contact your credit card company to inquire if they do this, and they will be able to file the claim and get you a refund for the TV.
Thanks Tim

    Well both are fairly expensive but the labor more so probably. The card will be around $400, you can find it for $240 or so online, so in a shop I'd say $400 and the labor could vary wildly, but I'd guess you'd be looking an $1000 easily to fix this LV :(. You could get a new tv with a full warranty of equivalent size for less than that. I'd recommend something like this Panasonic plasma, it is an amazing TV that will trump that Sharp on every front and is $645 shipped for free, no tax from Amazon here:






    Full warranty, free returns if there is any problem including you just don't like it, and delivered right to you. Many of the delivery people can even put it in place in your house for you.



    Thanks

No POWER


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

1x (steady constant blink) = Lamps or inverters
2x = Power Supply
3x = Main Unit

If i am reading it correctly, looks like the POWER led is flashing 2x, which means it is a power supply failure. Either way, your TV needs to have a board replaced, there isn't anything you can do to fix it yourself. Try locating your local sharp authorized service center to repair your TV (1-800-237-4277)
