If your television blinks 5 times or for a count of times, it simply is indicating that there is a problem inside the unit.

The problem applying to this situation is a faulty lamp. The lamp is bad and simply need to be replaced.

As soon as you replace the lamp, the television will be in good condition once again.

Take care and good luck

    This is a problem Sony are aware of. My set is 3 years old when the backlight failed red light blinking 5 times. Without any questions Sony replaced the whole front panel at their cost. The lamp cannot be replaced by the user it must be done by a tech in a dust proof environment.
