SOURCE: Standby LED blinks 4 times
4 blinks on a Sony Bravia indicates a backlight/inverter (aka ballast) problem. These ballasts are regrettably only available with an entire LCD panel. :( You may perchance be able to find a parts outfitter online that scraps out TVs and have a used ballast.
Typical backlight problem on an LCD shows up as the screen lighting up for a second or two and going back off. The 4 blinks just confirms your problem.

SOURCE: Same problem
More then likely, the problem is the power supply, not sure if this one is internal or external. The manufacturers of these lcds are using cheap taiwan capacitors that fail as little as a year of use. These capacitors probably need to be refurbished. I have done a few LCD power supplies here at our repair shop.

While I can't tell you what this particular code means I know from experience that power boards fail frequently commonly on those TVs. Do you hear a clicking of the power supply first on and then off after a few seconds?
There's a guy or a company on eBay that offers trade-in for faulty power supplys, you should check them out:
Search for 37'' Philips in the title or contact them to ask about it. Used to be $99 flat including return shipping.
