Let me repost the question for other experts because I may stay offline for today.
Hello, This is Aric a different tech. The 2 short and 5 long blinks points to the panel power supply failing- which can be caused by either the power supply board, the LCD controller board (the t-con) or the panel itself of the TV failing. If you're looking to repair the set yourself, then you would need to either use a meter and test the 12 volt output on the power supply board- or a layman would replace that board. If the issue still occurs then the t-con needs to be replaced to determine if that is the cause, or if the LCD panel of the TV is faulty. If you're looking to go thsi route simply postback and I will search for links to those boards for you.
Alternatively, if this is not something you're comfortable with, then a shop will charge typically $200-$250 parts and labor to diagnose and swap the offending part- UNLESS it is the LCD panel in which case the TV is not repairable (cost of the panel is 80% of the cost of the TV). If you'd like you can use the link below to locate a shop in your area:
Other than that, I'm sorry for the bad news and wish there were a quick fix.
