Hi, my name is***** will assist you. I am sorry to hear that happened. The Sony will blink a code to let you know the issue. Follow these steps please, disconnect the power cord, then press the power button on the tv for 20 seconds. Then reconnect the power cord and press the power button for 30 seconds. If it does not power on normally, watch the red l.e.d on the front panel and let me know the number of blinks. For example it will blink one, two, three, four, five times, then pause and blink the same number between each pause.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

It is blinking 5 times before pause

Expert:  *ElectronicsTech replied 2 years ago.
Okay, thank you.
The five blinks is a usually code for the C Board. Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. The Sony can be repaired, the cost of the part
is usually around £40.00.
The labor and testing should also be around £50.00
