My Sony Bravia TV will not turn on. The red LED light flashes red 5 times, pauses then repeats.

My sony bravia will not turn on.  The red LED light flashes red 5 times then pauses and flashes 5 times repeatedly.  I am told that the number of flashes indicates what the error is.  When I googled it I read that it means that the screen components are shot and the fix is more expensive than buying a new TV.  Is this true?

please post model number, would make it easier to find the blinking codes. Could be a t-con board ($25-100 fix) or a software upgrade (free) , or maybe the backlight is dead (yep too much to fix).

 Link above explains the blinking codes. From a little bit of internet sleuthing sounds like it could be a few different things, Power supply, Lamp, or ballast. Need a meter to determine which is bad. Hope this helped, sorry I couldn't get you more info! Smiley Happy
