The 4 blinks usually mean a vertical deflection problem. If you can solder you should be able to repair this yourself. Let me know if you wish to attempt the repair and I'll provide more details and instructions.

This problem is caused by a shorted Horizontal Output Transistor. I would suggest that you have this TV checked by a qualified TV technician. This type of problem requires dealing with dangerous voltages, and repair should only be attempted by a trained technician.
I hope this helps

I found online that these televisions have a problem with the button panels shorting out. I pressed all the button on the television; when I would press the buttons, the favorites screen would appear. I'd press it again and it would dissappear. This would work for all the buttons except for the menu and the button below it on the bottom of the T.V. screen. I took off the back of the television and looked at the circuit boards. I removed the wire connector fot the top button panel, from the main circuit board, and op checked to see if the television would change channels with the remote. NOPE. So, my only other option was to pull off the little rectangular buttons from the circuit board for the bottom of the T.V. If it didn't work I was going to throw the T.V. away anyway. I know it sounds crazy, but it worked. I don't know how much it would cost to have someone troubleshoot and replace the pieces, but I'm not worried about it. I can still change the channels with the top buttons and adjust menu options with the remote now. The buttons that didn't work, the menu and *, the piece was corroded. However, just breaking this one off didn't work; I had to break off the piece for the up and down arrows. I'm not a specialist, but it worked for me.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. If you're still in warranty, the TV will be repaired at no charge to you. The warranty would likely be at least one year from the date of purchase from the manufacturer. If you purchased an extended service plan they will repair the TV at no charge as well.
If the TV is no longer in warranty, it will likely cost a minimum of $150 parts and labor. This is assuming that you only need one circuit board or small part. If the problem is more than one of the circuit boards, the price of repair could go much higher.
I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
