KV27S42 problem

The 2 blinks is an indication of overcurrent. That translates into a short somwhere inside the set. since you can get sound but no picture, that suggests that the problem is in the high voltage section. The most common failure there is the Horizontal Output Transistor. This is a 3 legged part attached to a heatsink close to the flyback transformer (part with large red wire coming out the top). That part should be marked C5438 or something similar. Post the marking here and I'll give you the complete part number.

Won't turn on - comes on and goes right back off

Is the picture good or is it dull and dark?
A dull aka weak picture tube will cause low beam current and blank the screen. Last set I had do this I turned up the screen control to make it brighter. Use caution and don't turn it up too high were you see vertical retrace lines in the picture.

Red light blinks four times

Four blinks = No vertical Deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single horizontal line then the video signal muted. Check IC1509, Q1505 (this varies from model to model). If you have no expertise with sets like this, or this does not solve your problem, get a quote from an authorized SONY service centre - before going any further or getting the set fixed. It doesn't matter if the set is a flat panel widescreen or standard CRT model; the symptoms are similar for each and the repair costs for such will be pretty much the same.
