Hi, If all else fails, try do a hard reset. You can verify from your manual, but in some units, this is merely unplugging the unit from mains for a couple of hours. Try again, if it still shows error codes (blinking lights) you probably have to seek the services of a qualified professional. Hope this be of some help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.

14 times means the LCD panel is defective. I just had one of those tvs in my shop. Sony will take care of the panel replacement in warranty.

If the Standby light is blinking at the front panel of the TV, it seems that there is an internal malfunction occurred in the TV. I will forward a link to a page where you can get more information and troubleshooting steps for this issue. http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=C399467 Please perform the steps provided on the page.

Unfortunately 5 blinks is a LCD panel error. The only way to fix it is to replace the whole LCD panel. This is the most expensive part in the TV.
part number: 1-802-488-12
List price: $1336.32
Core charge: 1790.00
You could try to replace it yourself but would need to take the whole TV apart by first taking off the back cover, then removing all the boards in order to get to the panel before putting it back together but I would just recommend buying a new TV as the price of the repair exceeds the price of a new TV of the same size.
