The issue may be with the Lamp of the TV. Replace the Lamp and check.

First of all we'll get rid of the more obvious questions.
Is it plugged in? Is the fuse in the plug OK? Is it switched on? Are the other electrical goods in your place working? Is the cable attached to the TV? Is the aerial in properly (both ends)? Does it work at another socket?
Right, now that those are out of the way we can look at the problem without worrying too much about human error. If there is no sound or picture then the electricity is not getting round the circuitry, which means there is a loose wire/burnt-out diode, or something similar. You need to take it to a TV repair shop.
least try a couple of free attempts:
1.- Hard reset. Merely unplug the power cord and leave it unplugged for 4 hours or more; then try again.
2.- Vibration test. Whack it hard with your hand or fist all around the cabinet in order to vibrate any loose connection or cold solder joint internally. Older sets often have corroded pins in connectors or cold solder joints that start acting up and the vibration will activate them - for a while anyway. WOrth a try.
3.- If the above do not provide any benefit then the only solution is a repair at the local shop. Maybe looking up the blinking code you can get some idea of what the problem is, but in any event when a tv shuts itself off it means the protection circuit has been activated. This activation is from a short circuit in one of the 8 or 10 sections of the tv.
Maybe can send more details about your make and model.
I hope help you with this.
