Check the lamp.

It seems that the internal filter (on front of the lamp) shifted or maybe dislodged from the correct position.

5 Blinks on this unit is not your lamp. Your lamp driver aka ballast is the problem. Very small chance that the G board is defective but I doubt it.

Was the sets Lamp replaced recently and what if any lights on front of set blink when it goes off (error code)?

Remove and examine lamp to see if shattered--lamp has a 2,000 hour lifespan and may look good--if it fails the lamp light on sets front should light.

A ballast is harder to call--can check the approx 300 volts from the power supply to see if it shows at ballast.

Video instructions for lamp replacement are by model number available on You Tube for most sets.
