Question about Sharp Aquos LC-46D62U 46 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

The picture blinks like a strobe light

After one year, and of course after the warranty expired, the TV picture started to blink like a strobe light. If i play with the backlight and go to the negative numbers, the blinking slows down and sometimes it stops. But when i turn the TV off and on again, it starts blinking. The backlight trick does not always work, plus the image quality is not great all the way to the negative numbers. Some times i get it to stop blinking after re-setting to factory settings, but it always starts blinking if i turn the TV off and then on.

The backlights and their power supply has to be replaced to fix the set. You will have to bring the set in for service to have this done.

Green light is blinking


because of poor quality electronic components that cost less than $10. Of course mitsubishi will replace the entire module, so that the repair without warranty would cost $700 to $900.
you're so lucky if your warranty did not expire yet
Good Luck

My lcd digital lifestyle tv is blinking like a strobe light.


Your back-lighting is failing. This is part of the LCD panel and can not be repaired without replacing it. Due to the cost of the panel, best advise would be to replace the TV. Sorry for the bad news... you should check into your warranty status.

My Sony KDL-46 Xbr4 picture flickers and there's a blinking light that continuously blinks inside the panel. What does this mean? Pete


The blinking light is a problem code.
Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you blinking light codes, circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

No picture or sound just six red blinking lights


Use your warranty in a hurry before it expires. Your TV when into protection mode to prevent further damage. Most TVs have a 1 year warranty. Good Luck.
