Thanks for the info, 7 blinks red power light error code indicates Audio section problem in this TV, it means either sound processor chip or audio amp chip is bad or speaker wires are short/ touching metal frame of TV or sound circuit isn't getting working volts from power supply board etc, AU board has all audio circuitry in this TV.

- Have you tried to unplug TV power cord from wall outlet for 10 minutes to reset, replug back in and check?
If problem persist then it needs further troubleshooting with voltmeter to determine what is causing the problem to get it replaced which will help to resolve the problem. Please reply back if you have voltmeter and can check volts on circuit board inside TV to assist you further and if you are not comfortable working on it yourself then you may please use following link to get list of TV repair shops in area which will help to get repair quote...
