The fix might be cheap, or it might be expensive. I've gotten two older LCD tvs that did something similar. Both were a common problem with the model and make. They both needed a small capacitor replaced on the main board. The one that needed replacing had burst, and it simply had to be soldered out, and a new one put in. Worked easy, but you need to be comfortable taking the TV apart to find out. Generally by control board, the power light blink number is part of a diagnostic for a repair person. you might be able to type the specifics into Google , model, number of blinks, what color... and find the issue. If it is a power supply, it might be a 50-80$ part. If it is a capacitor, probably would cost less than $5 with shipping from Ebay. Get the info together and call a local repair shop, as long as the screen isn't damaged, it's probably cheaper than buying another one.

The auto-dimming is from the OPC (light sensor) control on the Sharp LC-65UE630X. Enter the menu and go to the TV setup portion of the menu system. Select the Picture sub-menu and set OPC to Off. This is shown on page 3-3 (page 24 of the PDF). Sharp has the manuals for their Android TVs here: . The direct link to the manual for the LC-65UE630X is currently .

I hope this helps. If you have a different model, please add a comment with the full model number. I believe the light sensor dimming will be in the same place across most Sharp models. I would only be able to confirm this with the model of your set.

This is an error code! Look in the manual as to the reason!

Your BluRay player is probably set/fixed to Region 2 (if you are in UK/EU). Most devices let you change the region bashing some strange combination of buttons on the remote control (engineer code/command), that allows it to be set to different regions or preferably REGION 0 (region free).

You can most likely find this by google'ing your BluRay player with the words region engineer code, but if you supply the make and model, don't mind having a look for you.

Make a note of the generic part number on the screen label and look on fleabay or order one from an authorised Sharp Electronics Service Centre.

Check the "Main Power" to ensure it is on. Locate the button on the top of the television among the "Volume" and "Channel" buttons. ... If the "Main Power" button is off the remote will not turn on the television. Wait to see if pressing "Main Power" will activate the TV.

What are you connecting to the HDMI1 port on the Sharp TV?

Sharp Televison... | Answered on May 07, 2020

You have inadvertently downloaded the US (or other region) version of the firmware. Unfortunately if you try and download the UK version the HP21 just tells you you have already installed it. I was told mine the only way to reset it is for it to be sent to Sharp or you can wait for a new firmware update.

um what ever site you can find

Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, [Exclude the model number] in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.
