Hi, 5 times blink of standby light shows that TV needs White Balance adjustment. No need to dump it, adjustment is also not so difficult. Let me know if you want to give it a try to guide you.

    Find 3 knobs with Screen R, G B that needs to be adjusted, now turn clockwise one knob a little bit and power up TV, still no joy, turn next knob a little bit and check TV power up? and same with last knob.
    Do not turn knob all the way either side, that will cause TV to go to standby and blink 5 times.
    Let me know the results.
    Thanks.

    I have a KDP-51WS550 with the problem mentioned in this string. I found the 6 knobs and 3 you mentioned have been turned clockwise ~1/8 - 1/4 turn, one at a time as you said, but still no video. Every time I power it up and down, the blinks alternate from 5 to 10 blinks with each power on / off

TV will not come on, LED light flashes 10 times, then pauses, then repeats Sony Model KDP 57ws655


Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.
