7 red blinks

TV turned off during the night (I fell asleep) and I awoke in the middle of the night to the power light blinking red 7 times in succession over and over again. Do you know what that means?

I replaced the two badly swollen capacitors that were in the D3V3 circuit. The picture that mkinn posted shows that the capacitors that I replaced. They are directly centered in his picture. The caps that I replaced were 3300 Microfarad 10VDC. Radioshack does not sell the replacement capacitor but they do sell a 2200 Microfarad 35VDC Axial and a 1000 Microfarad 35VDC Axial. The two capacitors in parallel add up to one 3300 Microfarad capacitor. It took some effort but I was able to parallel the two capacitors using some jumper lead and heat shrink. I ran the TV last night. In the past it would not work after being shut off overnight. It worked this morning. Thanks mkinn.
