My Insignia 42/43" TV suddenly will not power on. The little red light in the lower right corner keeps flashing 5 times and then pauses then repeats.

Tried power button reset, did not work.

Something you can try is a power reset. Unplug the set from the electrical outlet. Once unplugged, hold down the power button for about 45-60 seconds. Once that time elapses, release the power button, plug back in, and try to power on. If the set responds, the Power supply is possibly getting faulty, in which case a repair may become necessary for continued use. If the set does not respond, it may be a issue with the power supply, or a fault on the main board itself, in which case a repair or replacement will be required.

Likely damage to main power supply-------try to see if there is a specific number of blinks then a pause and repeats like 7 blinks a pause and repeats---that is an error code if there---with it AND THE MODEL NUMBER OF THE TV I might be able or not to help.

No picture. Red light bottom right corner flashes rapidly three times, pauses, and repeats. continuously

Hello maryconroy8,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

To answer your question: The light you see blinking, is actually the TV sending out an SOS code.
In most cases this SOS code means that the main board has died. But without knowing the Make and Model of this TV, it is hard to just assume this is the case.
You will need to take this TV to a local TV Repair shop and have the Power supply board and Main Board tested for issues and/or replacement.

Have a great day!

5 red flashs on power/standby light on kdsr60xbr1 screen blank,

Thats the error for lamp driver error. Which means the Ballast is most likely defective. You can get the replacement ballast for your model at the following link which comes with installation instructions.
