The 5 blinks is indicating the lamp ballast needs replacement your model uses the Sony lamp Ballast 147401211 for sony models
KDF42E2000, KDS-50A2000, KDS-50A2010, KDS-55A200, KDS-60A2000, KDS-60A2010,
& KDS-60XBR2 amd LDS-R60XBR2 Which is available at the bottom of the page at the following link. The ballast comes with installation instructions, http://www.tvrepairworld.com/sony_circuit_boards/sony_dlp_circuit_boards
Use a eyeglass cloth or LCD screen cloth. Use NO solvants on it. Just dry cloth. ALSO goto the settings menu and put the tv in HIGH altitude mode. There tv's get too hot and the light engines go out. Green or blue tint. or dots. It also helps the lamp last longer.
Hi, 3 times red light blinking indicates that Lamp Cover has not been fixed in its location properly after lamp replacement. Please make sure lamp cover (its first thing that was removed to replace lamp) is installed securely. Thanks.
If you already replaced the lamp and still have the same issue, that means you will need to replace your ballast, of course there is no need in returning the lamp, since eventually you're going to need one.
I too have a Sony KDS-R60XBR1 tv and the issue that you are experiencing is due to one of your fans in the rear of the tv is not working. The tv automatically shuts off in protective mode. Make sure the POWER/STANDBY light is blinking and not the lamp light below it. Is the power/standby blinking 4 times in red? If, yes then its a fan that needs to be replaced. If its the lamp light blinking then you need to replace the lamp. The lamp is easy to replace by ordering the lamp either from Sony for $250 or find it cheaper for approx. $150 from other DLP sources and replace youself by following your manual. I hope this helps you.
I bought a True replacement from the PartsStore through Amazon.com and it cost me about $185, but it was a Phillips bulb and the full cartridge replacement. I went with the aftermarket bulb only replacement the first time, lasted less than a week and haven't resolved that issue yet.
