Question DetailsAsked on 11/26/2017

Hi. My 60" Sharp Aquos LC-60UD27U will not turn on. There is no sound as well.

60" Sharp Aquos LC-60UD27U will not turn on and there is no sound either. The white (off/on) power light in the front comes on but The red troubleshooting code light next to it does not come on at all. It does make a clicking noise like it wants to turn on But does not. I took the back off and examined the switchboards But nothing looks burnt/blown. Nothing is swollen either. I really do not want to throw it away. I would really prefer to fix it myself and save as much money as I can so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Since the screen and trouble light do not come on, sounds like a power supply problem to me - the "click" is likely a thermal protection of self-resetting circuit breaker shutting ti down because there is a short somewhere. Since the POWER light is on, you obviously have power to the unit - so cord or outlet problems are out of consideration - the problem is definitely inside the TV.

Only way to track this would be to, for a person faimilar with circuit testing, using a volt-ohm meter with electronic testing capability (regular VOM can fry some electronic components) to trace the power flow and figure out where it is being interrupted - then replace defective component or board, or find out where the short is if a breaker or thermal reset is tripping out.

TV Repair is of course the Search the List category to find well-rated and reviewed TV repair techs - but find out firsst what the replacement cost for you TV is today (especially during holiday sales) and bear in mind a new TV, with new warranty, is worth more to you than equivalent repair cost on an older one.

Looks like that exact model is going for $1650 at Walmart right now, around $1700 several other places for similar 65" ones from Sharp (looks like yours is an out-of production 2015 TV model). So getting a professional diagnosis on it would seem a good idea to me - might only be a few hundred to $500 range repair if a power supply problem, as opposed to $1000+ for a new screen - but does not sound like necessarily a screen issue to me - could be any of several causes.
