Hello my name is Anthony
Welcome
Thanks for the Question
The blink code indicates there is a problem with either the power or main-boards however there is a procedure to follow to eliminate using a meter, if you think you can do the work then please let me know, I will provide all the necessary info as an overview checks are made with a meter, the problem identified then the board ordered and fitted in the set
We have had some throw up spurious errors so please reboot by switching the set off from wallpower taking out ALL the inputs in the back of the set wait 60 minutes, then with the set disconnected from inputs replug the set back into wallpower does it still blink 10?if so work outlined above will need to be carried out.
Let me know please
A positive rating is appreciated thank you there will be a rating bar with this post thanks again

Roger if you change your mind or can find some one to do this work please let me know, the work itself would involve using a meter other than that replacing the board that is bad is quite easy but I understand it may not be suitable for some who maybe don't use screwdrivers and other such small tools.
If you still think this is not within your scope please understand I don't receive anything from the site until you rate the answer positively there will be a rating bar with this post thank you kindly.
