This answer was rated:

I have a Sony T.V. Model KDL 32WD756 which has recently started to play up after about 6hrs.
JA: What's the brand and model number of your TV? How old is it?
Customer: SONY KDL 32WD756 about 5years old
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: No. Firstly the picture starts to break up until the screen goes black but the sound is ok. Usually I can turn the tv off and on again and it corrects itself however the tv no longer comes on and all i get is a red flashing led which flashes 5 times continuously.
JA: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No thanks.
Hello,
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!

ok.

Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

Please note, a rating is only needed when we are finished.

Can you please remove the power to the TV (so unplug it from the power socket).

Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power again to the TV, turn it on and tell me please if it is now operating correctly.

Let me know the results please

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
NO. All I get is a continuous red flashing LED in five flashing increments

Thanks

Can you disconnect everything from the TV, so cable box, Bluray player, Antenna ect

Then connect only the power, power it on and tell me how it then functions please

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I've tried all that before but it still flashes red at the bottom of the set.By holding the power on button down for some time I have managed to get the LED to go white with sound and the screen will momentary turn white as if the picture is about to return - alas it immediately returns to its red flashing mode.

Thanks

It is the mainboard that has faulted.

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the TV to have this replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.

I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
