Hello Colin
OK its indicating a fault however please do this first>>>>
Unplug the set from the wallpower, take out all the inputs into the set, press the on\off switch (whilst set OFF)and hold it for 20 seconds, wait 15 minutes then re-plug the set back in again (no inputs connected) do you still have 14 blinks?

Still 14 blinks
Expert:  info tech replied 2 years ago.
Hi
Colin you have a fault with the audio output circuits on the set thats what the 14 blinks means now you have rebooted so its not an erroneous blink so that means work will be needed inside the set possibly replacement of the mainboard (or audio board)inside the set, are you able to perform work yourself with the set, ideally you will need to know how to use a multi-meter and be "hands on" to follow advice.
If thats not within your comfort you will need an engineer who will charge around £100\£120 for this work
Let me know if you need more info
