Either a bad power supply or a bad processor board.
A Good Service Shop should know what the 10 blinks are indicating.
May be a repair cost between $200 and 400 dollars.

Hi above is a copy if your user manual, Below is a copy of your service and repair manual.
OK well what has happened i suspect, is that your set has been "Spiked" from a power disturbance, and this has damaged either the PSU, or an internal high voltage component, or both, and now, the Protection Circuitry in the SMPS unit, is "Sensing" a potential what's called a "Catastrophic fault", that may potentially cause a fire, an explosion or both, and accordingly the set MUST be shut down, so the protection circuitry does exactly that.
Your best bet, is to contact a local or head office of the TV's manufacturer, and ask them for a referral to an authorised servicing center. When contact is made with them, ask for a "Quote" for the repair, before allowing any repair work to be undertaken. This then at least will give you an idea as to costings and you can then make an informed decision as to repair or replace, as often these days i find in my shop anyway, many repairs can be very expensive, and often it would be better putting any monies that would have been spent on repair towards a NEW unit with a warranty.
If you wish to DIY then the service manual has all the necessary troubleshooting steps to isolate and locate the fault, find the cause and fix any damage as well.

The main cause of this power up problem are bad capacitors on your power if the capacitor is bad. See more bad capacitor image
Now, if your LCD set is still under warranty I would suggest to use it and let the professionals handle the problem for you. But for the rest of the Samsung LCD TV owners that their warranty had expired and want to save some money, this would be the best route. Mind me, when I fixed my power supply I didn't have any previous experience on desoldering and soldering capacitors on a power supply board. It was a good experience after all is said and done.
Now lets talk about the specs, capacitors hold 3 important value:
1. The capacitance measured in uF(micro farads) (ex. 2200uF), 2. Voltage (ex. 10v), 3. Temperature (ex. 105°C)
I hope that this will help to solve the problem and do take care because it contains high voltages...
