Because of the intermittent nature of this issue the problem is likely to be power-board trouble the 4 blinks indicates a balance issue that drives the LED back-lighting so in all likelihood at this point the board may need to be replaced, if this is something you can think you can do yourself I will be happy to help let me know.

Other options are to call in a tech will locate a tech in your area
