Your lamp has blown. You can order the lamp from Sony and replace it yourself. You can purchase the lamp here:

Other vendors also sell this lamp at a cheaper price (check the net)

I have this problem often. I'm not sure but I think it's the fan that cools the light. I say this because when I reach my hand in, the fan seems stiff. I vacuum out the dust, and I spray some WD40 in the fan from behind the rear housing. There's been times where I did this twice before the fix took. I really don't know if this is the problem or not. All I can say is that the TV has quit about five times now and I'm watching it as I write this.
Maybe it's some wiring and pulling the light out and monkeying around gets the "short" fixed. Who knows. It does seem like the fan though. When it finally quits for good I'll try replacing the fan. Maybe I'll even replace it before it dies completely who knows. For now, the quick fix works and I'll take it.
It sure beats taking it to a repair shop. I do almost hope it dies all the way so I've got an excuse to buy a 60" Samsung 240 hz refresh rate. What stops me now is that the picture on this Sony kds50 a2000 is really quite nice. It's not as cool as a state of the art Samsung, but hey, it's five or six years old and paid for a long time ago. It's hard to beat one of these old kds50s.

My tv cuts on but flashes red light 5 times and shuts off


Those 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.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

My sony wega kf-50E200A tv keeps turning off. during each cycle the green light blinks 42 times and the tv comes on again for about 3 minutes and it happens all over again


More than likely the power supply is defective, but without testing and the repair manual that is just a guess, you make the decision to replace or repair the TV.

No Video Or Sound - Stand By Light Flashes 5 Times


If the tv was made before December 2008, there is a capacitor settlement from a class action lawsuit by Samsung. Supposedly (at no charge) they will send a repairman to replace the capacitors.
