Hi , my name is Jack

This blink codes indicates a backlight inverter circuit part # -789-500-33 failure and that circuit cost some $100 to buy

To have a shop repair this for you would cost at least $250 and you can buy a new 40"+ for that kind of money now

Considering the age of the tv i would not recommend a repair unless it has some sentimental value
