Question about Televison & Video
The number of blinks indicates the error code. It appears to have been 7 but I am not sure as the video cut off right at the 7th blink. Regardless, 7-10 blinks indicates various issues with the power supply or one of the various boards. Unless electronics is your thing I'm afraid you will not have much choice but to get it repaired professionally. If it is your thing, here are the error code results for 7-10:
Seven blinks - High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33k and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply regulation and horizontal circuits.
Eight blinks - Problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and blinks the self-diagnosis code. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401, and 402. On some projection models of Sony TV sets, this code means that T8005 (fly back transformer), or the associative components in the high voltage circuits are defective on the D board.
Nine blinks - Replace D 6116 and D 6301 on the "G" board, do not resolder as this will fix the problem temporary. This could also be a Panel Module Error or Thermal Error. If it is intermittent 9 blinks, meaning sometimes the TV comes on and other times you get flashing, then change the switching regulator on the "G" board or check connections. Make sure the regulator is -12 or -13 (negative).
Ten blinks - Check Q8014 and Q8013 for shorts, leakage, or bad solder connections on the "D" board. If the transistors are bad, check R8051 and IC8005, also on the "D" board.

Assuming you have tried changing batteries in your remote and any front panel power switch your set has, the main power supply is probably at
fault and without some technical background and a couple of test instruments,
you will not be able to do the repair yourself.
What you can do though is; unplug the set, let it
stand overnight or at least several hours, remove the back panel and look for a
separate board with mostly larger components on it; it will have a ferrite core
transformer on it and several larger capacitors which are cylindrical and
mounted vertically to the board.
Before touching anything inside, especially on that board, allow several hours to be safe since the larger capacitors can hold a painful voltage charge for some hours.
If you see signs of overheating such as discoloration of the board material, it may not be repairable but if you can find a part number on the board, you might be able to buy the power supply and install it yourself.
If there are no signs of heat damage to the board, there may be companies offering to repair it as a subassembly instead of repairing the whole set which could be much more expensive.
If you choose to replace or have it done, the power supply still may not be at fault since most are capable of switching on and off if a downstream problem is causing an overload.
