Flickering display android TV?

Hi! Recently, my Sharp Aquos android TV started flickering which would eventually turn off by itself. The power indicator would blink red and when I would turn the TV on again, the same issue occur. Any idea why this happens? Is there a fix for this that I could do by myself without having to bring the TV to service? Because of the situation right now, it would be quite a chore to do so. Any help would be appreciated. My TV's model btw is, 4T-C60AL1X.

    It needs to go to a professional for proper diagnosis and repair. 


    Very often, electrolytic capacitors in the power supply go bad.   

    As parts they are generally cheap, so most of the cost will be labour. 

    Depending on the number of them that need to be replaced, 

    expect to pay between $70 and $100. 


    Other possibilities include bad solder connections 

    and/or loose or dirty connections between circuit boards. 


    What you Really don't want is a bad or broken screen. 

    Replacing one is usually not worth the cost 

    even if the right one can be found, 

    which is not always possible.
