Question about Panasonic PT-47WX42 47" Rear Projection Television
5 blinks is short protection, it means a short on the 140 volt line coming from the set's power supply.
Most likely is the horizontal output transistor is bad.
Let me know if you want to know how to get at it and test it.
The set has a light box that contains everything that can be removed for this kind of service.
I am very familiar with this set and have fixed hundreds of them.
