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:

http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p3907.m38.l1313&_nkw=sharp+power+board&_sacat=See-All-Categories

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!

SOURCE: POWER AND OPC LIGHT BLINKING GREEN

The condition of your TV called power supply overcurrent shutdown that"s why you hear a click. The TV is going into a protection mode to prevent further circuit damage. That's why it will not turn on or not powering up. I would concentrate on the power supply section board. Bad regulation of the incoming voltage could caused this issue although,there is a capacitor across the incoming line and nuetral.Maybe its leak or dry up and cause the problems,change it out with one of identical rating . Although now you are getting into dangerous area,especially if you have no electronic experience background. It could be also be a loose ,crack or cold solder joint,a blown fuse,fusible links or other component .It could be one of several boards.Unfortunately the level of sophistication on these TV make it virtually impossible to diagnose them further without taking them apart and probing around with a multimeter and other tools.This TV is handy enough to take to a repair shop find a good one.You will probably have to pay $75 to $100....

Hope this may help you..

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)

It appears your TV is not sequencing properly. By the order given in your instructions with the controller you are tuning, continue with a code until it satisfies .


Press setup- blinks twice. Enter TV manufacturer code- press enter. Light should flash once. Press on . After it works . Go through all the functions. Up- Down, loudness, channels,& on -off .


Fare .Well.
