How old is the tv?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The model is TH-42PZ85B
Serial number FE-8223118

I am sorry about the delay.
just to make sure about the problem and identify the cause i have come to a conclusion that the tv has a problem with its power supply unit a 15volt dc area which provides a standby power to the unit is bad.
i am attaching a video link basically a 10 blink and 2 blink is related to the same problem with the power supply unit, the tv will require a repair and its worth to get it repair.
Attaching a video link just for your reference however the model might differ.
