Is this an easy fix or something I should just replace

I am checking that right now, please hold on.

4 blinks is an error code for a failed FAN. There are 3 fans in the tv and they are not easy to change. I can help you with that but if you cannot DIY, you will need to use local repair shop. In home repairs start at $300 on this model and most shops charge just for diagnosis. So you may want to compare that to prices of new 46" tv's.

I know this is bad news and very upsetting but please understand I am here to provide an honest answer. I hope you will submit a 5 star rating at the top of this page and not base the rating on the fact that your tv needs parts or services outside of our control. If for some reason you don't feel I should get 5 stars, please do not rate and just let me know and I will follow up with you here.
