If your TV still does not turn on after unplugging , then you will have to retry for a longer period of time. Try longer periods of time such as overnight. And you must unplug the monitor from all connections that can supply power to the TV. It is recommended to remove all connections. If still not working,then it maybe a loose contact or cold solder.
Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected (hanging by a thread). When the TV turns on heat would be generated which would be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough.

Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections" except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold solder".

Again on the assumption of no defective parts, then seeking a more experienced buddy for the soldering might be to your advantage. This is of course in addition to the possible electrical hazards when repairing....

Good luck:

Hi,
Please reply couple of questions about TV to guess what could be wrong.

1- How many times standby light blinks, there would be interval of 3 seconds in blinks so count pause to pause.

2- Please intimate exact model of TV, written on sticker pasted at back of TV. That will help me to check its schematics.

Hit " add a comment" button to reply.
Thanks.

HOLDING DOWN THE TV ANDTHEON/OFF BUTTON ATTHE SAME TIME.UNTILTHEON/OFF BUTTON STAYED ILLUMINATED.
PRESS THE PLAYBUTTON IT WILL BLINK,IF TV DOES NOT GO OFF PRESS PLAY EVERY 5 SECONDS UNTIL TV GOES OFF.
ONCE TV TURNS OFF HIT THE REVERSE BUTTON THE TV WILL COME BACK ON.
HIT THE STOP BUTTON TO SAVE THE CODE.
REPEAT THIS BUT HOLD THE OTHER DESIRED DEVICE INSTEAD OF THE TV.

HOPE IT WORKS

Sharp Aquos LC-32D4OU


Comment by Guest, posted on Oct 25, 2008My Aquos has the same problem. I'm not sure how I discovered this, but when I lean the TV forward and hit the power button it will turn on every time. If the screen blacks out and I don't lean it forward when I hit the power button, the screen will just remain blank. It is very weird, but at least repeatable.

- Thank you, Guest. That did it. It definitely seems to be a problem with the TV. Tilting it and hitting the power button helped me get the video back.

Sound goes off after 5 minutes


hi there, yes it can be fixed, hitting the unit means that you have a cold solder on the board. the sound is in the amplifier section, check some connection at the speakers and amplifier, a cleanning and a reheat of cold solder to the baord is required. ty

Need instruction to program the remote RCA 450


took me awhile but I figured it out

ok

Put your TV/DVD/VCR on
hold in what you want to program TV/DVD/VCR BUTTON
(you dont need codes or anything)
then while holding in what you want to program (TV, DVD, VCR) hold in ON/OFF
both at the same time

when the light comes on and stays on
keep hitting ON/OFF BUTTON
do it slow, when the TV turns off hit the STOP button at the bottom
then hit the button you just programed
then hit the ON/OFF button, the TV/DVD/VCR will turn on

if it doesnt work, repeat. make sure you hit the stop button when the TV/DVD/VCR shuts off, if you hit it an extra time while the TV/DVD/VCR is off it wont work.

took me about 30 mins to figure it out.

I lost my codes too, but I wanted to help all you other people too.. now since I helped you.. check my band out... www.myspace.com/jumpercablenj
