I've had this tv for about 5 years and it's always worked fine. Today I turned the tv on and there I can hear the channels that I'm watching but there is no picture. It's like the screen stays off but the sound comes one. The red power light comes on too. If I hit input it will change to DVD mode and I won't hear sound anymore but the screen stays dark as if it's not on.

I have the same exact TV and the same exact problem....except today the screen went black and I no longer get a picture from any source. I've had the TV for exactly 13 months. IF you've had your TV for less time, I'd return it.
Things to check: Make sure your TV is set to the correct input. I DK about the light flashing 16 times but that could be a stuck key on your remote control. If you can, urn off your remote and try turning on by hand and going through the "INPUT" choices to make sure you have it on the correct setting. BTW, if your TV is 5 years old, you'll make the money back in no tie if you get a new "Energy Star" TV. The new Energy Star TVs run on very little electricity compared to 5 years ago.
It sounds like there`s a sort on the secondaries of the power supply. Before the power went off, did you ever turn the tv off by unplugging it?? In other words, did you turn the power off completely to the set or leaving it in standby?? if you always left it in stby, it will be the capacitors in the power supply, they dry out if the power is always on, so they will need replacing. If you did turn off the power, then I think you`ll find that the power cut had nothing to do with the fault you`ve got now, it will be the Line Output Stage which has failed or gone short circuit.

That would be my solution. The trouble is either in the box or your connecting cables. Verify this by connecting the cable directly to the set. Then try a new set of connecting cables, or call the cable provider to replace the box.
