I would check the panel (circuit breaker box).Remove the screws around the panel and lift off.Check the 3 phase incoming wires,they will be the largest thick wires.Check to see if the insulation has burned off the wires exposing the copper.If so the wires could be breaking down or some kind of appliance or load is drawing too much amperage.Also check from other residents if they have had a problem,if so the transformer on the pole feeding the building could be failing.

After a 5 second power outage, the tv will not turn on.

Possible that the power while returning had a surge- this happens as the power needs to load up to stabilize . So it is always ideal to switch off power to all electronics devices when the power fails as if you are residing in the vicinity of the transformer then the surge will be high.
This will effect the power supply section which is a SMPS unit. Possible fuse or a driver would have failed.
