Default Sharp LC-55LE653U Firmware

The problem with this set is all of sudden on one turn on it would not come on. It will display the Sharp logo for about 6 seconds, and then backlight goes out for about 5 seconds, then repeats over and over. I feel like this may be a firmware or eeprom issue. Sharp has the firmware on their site, but the download doesn't work. Does anyone have this or know another source for it? Thanks!

WOW, I am glad I looked here. TV is fixed. So I downloaded the above file to a small USB flash and inserted it in the TV. Then I plugged the TV in and the TV did the update all by itself. TV is now working.

Do you know how much time takes in upgrading?, Do I have to put the firmware in a subfolder?

It only takes a few minutes, about 5 minutes. Just place the file on a USB drive, do not place in a sub folder. Unplug the TV, plug the USB drive into the TV, then plug the TV in and it should turn on and start updating, if it does not turn on then press the power button.

Try a different USB drive. I believe it has to be 1 GB or 2 GB. A bigger one will not work.

It may be too big. And the USB has to be of good quality.

For reference, I used a 16GB USB thumb drive formatted FAT32. Turned tv on to get it into the reboot loop. Turned off power at surge suppressor. Inserted thumb drive with firmware update and turned power back on at surge suppressor. Worked like a champ. Did not need to press the power button to turn television on. The update turned the set on and brought up the welcome screen.
