no
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 4 months ago

OK, 7 blinks error code shows a problem with SC/SN board that needs to be replaced, sometimes power supply board also found bad

Please click the following link to view SN board image and part number info to search/ google it if you're looking to attempt to repair the TV yourself

I'm sorry there is no easy or quick fix for this problem and it is definitely hardware failure that needs defective board replacement to resolve the issue
I trust my input will help you out to make the decision about this TV repair or invest that money in new replacement TV
