These 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 stage 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, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

Plasma and LCD TV sets are prone to having capacitors in the power supply section fail. This is the most likely cause for the probem you describe. When capacitors fail your will commonly see one or more of the following symptoms.
  • No video, Power light is on or blinking.
  • TV is making a clicking noise.
  • TV takes a while to come on
  • Screen is very dim or flickers.

Again, You can get a power supply repair kit with the parts, detailed instructions, and support from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com . Or just click here to see more details on their kit.

Here are pictures of capacitors...Notice that the ones below look bloated. They have failed and will need to be repalced.

The LCD screen cracked from the hit of the weapon.
Servicing will most likely be more than a new tv.
I would contact a local certified repair center to get an estimate on the repair of your tv.

Have you got the right model number this is an LCD TV, not a back projection set which uses a projection system. There is no bulb to take out on this model number.

Sony BRAVIA... | Answered on Feb 07, 2011


5 blinks means failed T-con AKA LCD controller board. It is the most in-expensive board in the tv and should cost you around 40$ for a replacement. It is also very easy to replace. Let me know if you want to fix it yourself so that I can give you appropriate instructions.
