Hi, I have a similar problem with my KV25x5 it seems to be the CRT. I have just brought a new TV rather then fix it. Try as a starting point & google "sony 5 blinks" Jesh

LED flashes of 8 times are indicative of a "High Voltage Error" which means something along the lines of "T8005 is faulty. (D board)" according to the service manual. Most likely it will need a professional to look at it. A link to the service manual is here:

Heres how you get into the service menu. BUT be very careful write down anything that you change as this can screw your set up and if you write down everything you will be able to change it back if it affects your set. You may want to consider getting the service manual which will explain all the details on the convergence adjustments. If so let me know and I will post a link where you can get one along with free tech support to help you out with it.
Put the TV in Standby Mode.

  • Then press the following buttons on the remote:

    {DISPLAY} {5} {VOL+} {POWER}
    {DISPLAY} {5} {POWER}

  • The TV will turn on with the Service Menu displayed.

  • Use numbers {1} and {4} to select the item to adjust.
  • Use numbers {3} and {6} to adjust the value of the data.
  • Press {MUTE} then {ENTER} to save new settings.
  • The words "WRITE" in red will show up in the upper right corner if saved.
  • Turn the TV off to exit the service menu.

    TURN TIMER OFF. GO TO SONY.COM, TROUBLESHOOTING, OR The STANDBY light is flashing on the television and there is no picture or sound. Solution
    sp.gif sp.gif The STANDBY light will flash if an issue is detected within the television. This can sometimes be resolved by simply following the steps below to reset the television.

    1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
    2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
    3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
    4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
    5. Turn on the television.
    If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required. Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.

    A 6 flash shutdown can indicate power supply problems or an open thermal fuse. To be sure, you should have a technician verify your problem.

    I have a Sony KP-53V90 53 with no display and red light flashing

    This is a good one. Your TV "looks" at the feedback coming from each picture tube in your TV. When it doesn't see what it expects, it kicks out a 5 flash. Most commonly, the correct signals never got to the picture tube(s) and that's why the feedback was abnormal. Which brings us to the most common solution: C boards, they attach directly to the bottom of the picture tubes. Figuring out which one has a problem... that's another matter. Due to the age of the TV, parts costs are rising. Each C board (3 in the TV) runs about $100 so guess work can be expensive. I hope this was helpful.

    Green flashes then tv turns off

    or a new lamp. you could first replace the lamp.
    the screen might work fine for a couple of seconds, but then it fades away or deteriorates. This means the lamp is going bad.
