Al,Seven blinks on this model means Temperature Error. The only possible fix for this is to replace the board that has the temperature sensor which is this board:KDL46EX710 BAL Board

Does this board require soldering to install or remove, or does it use connectors etc.?
Hi, I just installed the BAL board, and when I powered up the TV, the TV didn't come on, but the yellow and green lights started blinking at about 1Hz, together. I have not yet tried to load the firmware, as I haven't even gotten the TV to power on. Any thoughts?
We replaced the BAL board, and updated the software. Today, the TV decided to behave as before, and shut off, blinking the red LED 7 times. Any other thoughts about what is causing this problem, or how to fix it?
Al,Seven blinks means panel temperature error. 95% of the time this is just a faulty sensor on the BAL board (the panel isn't really overheating). But on rare occasions it does in fact mean that the LCD Panel is overheating. If replacing the BAL board does not fix the problem then the entire LCD Display Panel would need to be replaced, which costs as much as a whole new 46" Tv and can be very difficult to find/order...Mike
