12 flashes of red light tv is 7 years old
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 2 years ago

Thanks for the info, 12 times flashing red light error code indicates problem with sound processor chip which is mounted on A (main) board of TV and A Board replacement will help to resolve the problem.

If you are looking for to repair the TV yourself then get the part number off of A Board in TV (board that has all video inputs) and search/ google it to get price info and to order it. I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
A positive rating to answer would be greatly appreciated, please click on 5 star on this page then click submit/finish button so I can get credit on website for my work. If you don't see rating option then intimate here.
