Hi Marcie, It sound as though the Line timebase has packed up, and the start up circuit is trying 5 times, and fails. A Service engineer sounds a must. You could unplug the TV and look inside to see if anything is obvious such as burning or a blown fuse and then present your problem again with more details.

Hi Marcie,If you are familiar with tv service We can give you some ideas but that will mean opening the back and checking volts and possibly bad components,if you are not too famiiar I would suggest you to play it safe and seek the assistance of a professional.

The power/standby indicator is flashing a red light and my tv will not turn on.

Flashing of the led light indicates an error code, count how many times it will blink to determine where the fault came from.

Picture will come on and then go off after a couple minutes

This usually means the Lamp is failing. Replacing the Lamp usually fixes it. I would only use a Sony Replacement.
You can order one from Sony at 1800-222-SONY or you may be able to pick one up from a local Sony Retailer.

Problem for Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55WF655. Hello,

5 times Red LED blinks means Lamp Driver Error. (KDF-55WF655)
2 possible reasons, either Lamp is gone or Ballast Supply got bad.
Replace lamp first, in most cases it solved the problem.
How old is this TV and did you replaced lamp recently?

TV popped and shut off red light flashes 5 times then pauses

this specific type of TVs flash their standby light if the onboard testing system sniffed out a problem

so, as if your TV is trying to tell you "i have a problem and i need to be serviced"

i hope it goes well for you

SONY KV-XF21N90 WON'T TURN ON, Blinks 5 times

5 times flashing light shows following possible problems in your tv..

• G2 is improperly adjusted.

• CRT problem.

• Video OUT IC1800 is faulty.(C5 board)

• IC301 is faulty. (A board)

Most probably cause is G2 voltage adjustment. If you know how to do it, please go ahead or look a tv tech around.

Dead sony

The $1200 was for the lcd engine not the lamp. You should change the lamp. The buzz is the power supply trying to light the lamp.

Sony Wega 55" Replaced Bulb TV still does not work

Hello, please check how many times the red light flashes. If it is 3 times this means that the lamp cover is not fastened securely. If the red light flashes 5 times this means that the lamp driver is defect. If you need more help please advice
