Have an Aquos Sharp 32" 1080p LCD TV and the power went out in the house. Now the TV will not turn on, when I try the power indicator light blinks green repeatedly. Read the manual no help there....
This sounds like a problem that only a repair person can specifically point out. It could be anything from a fuse to the "engine".
Try to find a local "authorized" repair person to give you a free quote with no responsibility on your part to get it fixed as TV repairs can cost 50% of what a new one would or what a working used one would.
Also, I'd recommend to NOT overload your electrical outlets and to not use without a surge protector (a real one). If there is a storm or it's very windy, try keeping not only your monitor for your PC off, but also your TV (unless you need it for emergency reasons). Also, try getting a used battery powered cheap small tv with a digital converter box if you need to monitor the tv during an emergency. Also, get renters of home insurance to cover the costs of weather related damage.
Last thing... be sure that any "extended warranties" offered by your local electronics store will cover the cost of any weather related power outages. If so, it may be something to look into purchasing, although I generally advise to not buy into "extended store warranties".
OK, one last last thing... check the warranty with the manufactuer (SHARP)... If it's under warranty, tell them it's not working and you don't know why, so you need a replacement.
