I just wanted to turn my tv on from standby mode and the standby light disappeared and the tv isnt giving any signs of life. I'm searching the internet for cases just like this and I read that is recommended to plug it out, wait and plug it back in again. This doesn't seem to do the trick. Im getting a bit restless.

Its a Sharp LCD tv that I bought around 3 years ago. Haven't had any problems with it. Didn't even have to change the batteries in the remote control yet. Does anybody know anythings I can do? Maybe im not resetting it properly when I got it plugged out?

Im looking forward to the options I can try.

The TV sounds dead to me. Even if it could be working you shouldn't have to use the time and energy to fix it. It could also be an easy fix, but if it were my I would see if I could return it. Sorry.

Sharp uses cheap capacitors for their power supply. They frequently blow out. It is easy to open the TV and find the blown capacitor.(look for a crowned capacitor) It costs a couple of dollars to replace it and it is a very easy desolder/solder job. For my sharp TV it was 1 cap, and I replaced it and now it turns on just like new. You can review a guide on the instructables web page. Literally took me the most time just taking the back off the TV. The power board wires come right off the main board and backlight easy. And the soldering is easy with the pads pretty far away from any other pad.

I had the same problem with my Sharp TV just 18 months after I bought it. The repair guy explained to me that a lot of Sharp TVs had their chassis from a factory in Turkey that has massive problems with quality that Sharp have known about for years. Even though my Sharp TV was only 18 months old, it wasn't worth repairing. I fail to understand why Sharp kept on taking parts from the Turkey factory when they knew there were problems and I will never buy any product from Sharp again
