Question about Sharp Aquos LC-37HV4U 37 in. LCD HDTV
I had the TV on yesterday and it worked fine. No issues with picture or sound. Today I went to turn it on and no go.... the red power light on the front of TV is blinking 1 per second and it seems the "main power" button on the top right is not staying down in place. Is there a way to set the button and/or the TV? Thank you for your help. Holly

Right now your TV is in " Protection Mode " because of a failed part inside. The blinking red light is a error trouble code. Only someone with the actual Service Manual for the TV will know what the code means. Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. The most common board to go bad is the Backlight Inverter Board. It what supplies power to the screen. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptoms.
You have a few choices:
1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 - 45 minutes so the TV can discharge and reset itself.
2. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
3. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you red light blinking codes, circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.
4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.
I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.
