My name is***** am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.

I will be glad to assist you with this.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible!

The five blinks indicate a failed power board in the TV. In that case, you will need to have it repaired at your local electronics repair shop.

The part is usually around £65.00 and the labor is usually around £100.00

Do you have a local repair shop?
