Hi Peter,

Here are some basic steps that will help you fixing the problem.

I'm assuming that your unit is dead set without an standby LED light and your outlet is live.1.Power cord - check the cord it might be opened (no continuity).This is due to frequent bending,pulling. 2. Power switch - check for dry joints, open contact. 3.Check the internal fuse- sometimes the fuse fail because of the power surge, replacing with new one will cure the problem, If this is the case I would advice you to use surge protector/AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator). However if the fuse blew again this is an indication that you have a shorted parts in the power supply, you may visit the linkhttp://www.fixya.com/support/r8053361-fuse_keeps_blowing for more info. If no reaction and still the unit didn't power up then you have an open parts on the power supply.

4.If you see that the fuse is intact , don't attempt to touch anything because there some fatalcomponents stored electricity enough to hurt you with a simple mistake only. I would advice you to look for a professional to troubleshoot the power supply. If you want to repair it yourself make sure that you have necessary tools and test instrument. First check bad solder joints(re-solder all cold solder), leaky electrolytic capacitor(sometimes it has bulged at the top but not all, you better have a capacitor checker), open/shorted regulator transistor/IC(mounted in heat sink), open fusible resistor (caused by shorted regulator Transistor/IC), shorted zener diode.

You may also replace the power supply board, try online like ebay.com and shojimmy.com.

Also check if your unit is under warranty before opening the back panel, it will void the warranty. Avail it because the manufacturer of your unit will fix it for free or a little charge only.

Hope I helped you.

Have a nice day!

Thanks for using fixya.

My Sharp Aquos LC-26D44E-GY in the spare room has stopped working. It worked ok about 2 weeks ago, went to switch it on last night & its dead. We had a thunder/lightening storm last week? Ive changed...


First check your power outlet, try connecting the TV to a different power outlet. Then see whether the LED light on the TV is on or blinking. Anyhow, this might need attention by a qualified service technician.

RCA P52810lv will not power on


Completely dead with nothing suggests maybe a blown or open fuse--first step would be to unplug and look for a fuse--follow the power cord.

Does not seem that there is any electrical current. Checked all the fuses, they are fine. It doesn't seem like a battery problem as there is absolutely no current. Drove it last night everything worked. ...


Is the battery dead? Your alternator may be bad. If you drove it last night you may have driven on battery power and not realized it. You should have gotten some kind of warning message. Need to know if the battery is dead.

No power - have checked fuses, power leads and master switch


Well yes, there a problem in the power supply modual.
It does sound like a failing power supply , becuse of the
fact you don't get charge up spark from the plug , wich is normal
affter it's been off /unpluged for 20 min or so .

check the resistance of the plug coming from the set with a volt meter if you have 10 meg ohms or higher,
it's an open circuit and more than likely a 1.50 fuse in the power
supply. If the fuse blows instantly then it's a shorted output transistor or rectifier diode in the switching power supply.


Be a shame to pay 300.00 plus for a stupid fuse.

hope that helps a little . if you have any questions just comment
an i'll respond
.
