No simple solution. Expert TV told me it was the mother board and would cost $$$$ over 300. I opted not to spend that kind of money.
One guy online told me it was the power supply and if I took the power supply out of the TV and sent it to him, he could fix it for $70 plus S&H. He lives in Canada.
Still looking and open for local suggestions

Mother board repairing at component level is not possible to Sony. It is best to replace it. Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Tries unplug,replug tv back in like an hour later.Now the tv is resetting itself back to the factory setting.The tv should work now.Not,than the power supply board is the cause.That the board,where the power a/c cord plug into it.That the power supply board.Try website like Ebay.com to buy a refurbish power supply board for the replacement.
Sounds like it started "Protection Mode" because of a failed electronic part inside the TV. When this happens, the TV will keep turning itself OFF or will not turn ON at all. This keeps the other part inside from being damaged. Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. The common part to go bad for flat panel screens circuit board that powers the screen. Most manufactures call it a Backlight Inverter Board. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptoms. You have a few choices: 1. You can again try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 - 45 minutes so the TV can discharge and reset itself. 2. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route. 3. If you have some electronic experience, purchase a Service Manual over the internet at Nodevice.com; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, schematics, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15 by searching on the internet with the part number. 4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV. I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.
Our AKAI also shut off & the red light started to blink...got no help from AKAI, but did from COSTCO. We bought the set before the 90 day warranty they have in place now, so they referred us to COSTCO Concierge Services: 1-866-861-0450. We were referred to a repair service & after discovering what the problem was found out that AKAI not longer has parts for this model. COSTCO replaced our TV---talk about satisfaction guaranteed.
i have a similar tv, with 5 blinking red lights on the power off. is that a power board issue? (I see the small green light ionside the tv, flashing green.,,) the outer light stays red or flashed red when i power off. i replaced the fuses, still same issue.
Same thing for me. TV just turned off one day and won't come back on. LED flashes red. Someone said it's because a cooling fan went out. If I can't find someone to fix it I'll take it apart and tinker myself. 32" with dvd built in was barely over a year old.
I would bet on the power supply....these (and other Akai LCD) are notorious for filter capacitors. Look for electrolytic capacitors with a dome-like bulge on the top of them. They are usually located at the top of the power supply board where the power output lines run out.
