    Hi,

    I have exactly the same problem. After roughly 10 mins or so, the the screen will cut out, ant the red stand-by light will flash 5 times continuously. After a short period the TV can be switched back on again with a high pitched sound the will work as normal again for a while.

    I did have this exact problem a year ago, but after a 2-3 wks it seemed to fix itself.

TH 42PV8H A MY TV POWER NOT ON RED LED 2 TIME BLINKS


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

Yep , I cannot remember offhand but one the the internal boards has failed. The flashing code is telling us which one , will have to check SM to tell you which board but it should be under warranty , get it repaired for free.
