Sorry for the delay in responding, 5 flashes suggests a main board failure, so you looking at replacing the main PCB in the TV which will require the unit to be taken to a repair centre.

the typical cost is around £70, but can very depending on the exact model of Samsung and your location (since labour costs are double in london etc).

If you provide me with your postcode I can recommend a local engineer.
