Repeating 5 flash red on power light, no power up

There was a car crash outside our home that took out the transformer for our sub division. I use a power conditioner for the unit so the power surge shouldn't have been an issue. But my wife tried to turn the TV on and she say should heard glass break? now the unit just flashes the power light 5 times and then repeats. I guess it some sort of code anyone know? Thanks

Re: repeating 5 flash red on power light, no power up

When the red light blinks five times that would indicate that there is a problem with the "Lamp Driver". That would be Sony part 1468798-14 for a Sony KDF-41WE655.

TV power light just flashes red/green then turns off and then repeats itself. No picture no sounds just noises in the DVD part

your power supply/high-voltage transformer is shot. You can get a replacement at You will also need a soldering iron, and a defuser to remove power from old supply.

Power light flashed red 4 times then repeats no pic,new bulb/fan!

Check the fan that cools the bulb. It is directly behing the bulb. It should turn on when the power comes on. It apparently has a safety to protect your tv(and home). mine is in the process of going out. looking for online solutions as we speak.

Flashing Power Light

This set is going into shutdown. It has a safety feature that will not allow the set to turn on until it checks certain circuits. Inside the set there are multiple Red LEDs and one green one, that light up at turn on. One of them is not turning on and thats the circuit that needs repaired. The most common I've found is the Horizontal Output circuit. Usually the fusible link on the secondary in the power supply. Sometimes it goes as far as the High Voltage Transformer. Of course this is just one of the possible four circuits that cause this symptom. Hope this helps.
