Turning on then off quickly like this is usually a bad sign for the TV. Try disconnecting all inputs, moving it to a different room and plugging it in. If it powers up and stays on, the TV is not the issue, return it to it's normal location and power it up with nothing but power connected, if it still works slowy start adding the inputs you had connected before until one causes it to shut off.
Follow that input wire back, which ever device is attached has actually caused the problem and should be repaired or replaced. If the TV works in another room but powers on and off with only power connected when back in it's usual location then remove all plugins except the TV from the wall outlet or surge bar the TV is plugged into and test again. If this still causes the TV to turn off after 2 seconds call an electrician, if the TV works this way start plugging the other devices back in one at a time until one of them causes it to power off. If this is the case it's likely a 2 pronged device, like a phone charger is at fault and should be moved elsewhere in the home.
If none of this testing gets the unit to power up, it's likely the main power board inside has failed, if this is the case I would recommend replacing the TV as the currently retail for less than $250 for the 1080p models. Repair would likely cost between $160-$200 and you would have little or no warranty depending on the repair centers policy.
Hope this helps FixYa,

Your set has a problem with its power supply. If it is under warranty, have it replaced ASAP. If your warranty has expired, you can take the set to any good repair shop - ask for an estimate before having any work done to it.

First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board.
if not, next place to check will be the power supply module, make sure it has 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there is some troubleshooting you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.
