SOURCE: 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)

If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.
Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box
Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.
The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.
1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.
2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.
If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.
If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.
If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual
If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

On LCD Pay particular attention at inverter and power board, power board can be inspected looking for bulged or leaking capacitors, then tested with a multimeter. The inverter is more difficult to test , there is need to read voltages, should be done by a tech. Also the LCD controller board can cause same problem
On Plasma, test Sustain (Ysus/Zsus) / Buffer boards , cables to plasma, digital board and power board.
On Rear Projection : check lamp, lamp ballast, power board, and convergence.
On CRT TVs, check ballast , flyback transformer, CRT, Tuner, Convergence.

I've read online that upgrading to the latest firmware sometimes
resolves this issue. That's kind of shooting in the dark though - I
personally would not feel completely confident that a FW flash would
actually resolve the issue (as it could still be lurking beneath
somewhere, waiting to surface again). If you have no warranty, then
the FW flash is not a bad option. It's relatively easy and virtually
impossible to screw up!
Another option is to order a replacement (new or used) main power board, and swap it into the TV (or pay someone to do it). It seems the power circuit board is a common culprit for this issue. If you're a do-it-yourselfer, then open up your TV and see if you can tell which component is failing, then hit eBay for a replacement:
However, if you're still under warranty, then I imagine you've figured out by now that your best bet is to contact Sharp to fix this issue. Mine was luckily under the extended (15-month) factory warranty when this started happening to me. I was 13+ months out from date of purchase. Sharp support confirmed a tech needed to come out for an all-day appointment to troubleshoot the TV (I have the monstrous 65" Aquos). Thank goodness for the extra 3 month warranty I got when signing up for the Aquos Advantage club! Otherwise, my $3400 investment might have cost me at least $700-$800 to stay online - only ONE year out from purchase! If I would have known about the frequency and common nature of this problem, I would not have hesitated on buying the additional 3-year protection during my first year as an owner. Now I know to research product defects a bit more before opting out of a warranty for a multi-thousand dollar purchase!
In any case, I'll post the root cause of my issue (same symptom - OPC and power lights flash three times, then pause, and repeat indefinitely until TV is unplugged), once the Sharp tech leaves my place this coming week. Keep in mind that my root cause may not be the same as yours, even though the error codes are the same. :)
Good luck with your issue!
