The user manual only shows 4 errors as follows:
Warning light only flashing red:
The unit does not light properly due to an abnormality of the light source and light
source power. Turn off, then turn on the power after a while.
If the symptom persists, consult qualified Sony personnel.
The unit detects a drop impact.
If there is abnormality on the unit, consult with qualified Sony personnel.
If there are no abnormalities on the unit, disconnect the AC power cord and check
that the ON/STANDBY indicator turns off, then connect the AC power cord and
turn the unit on.
Warning and On/Standby flashing red:
The internal temperature is unusually high. Check to ensure that nothing is blocking
the ventilation holes and the unit is not being used at high altitudes.
The fan is broken. Consult with qualified Sony personnel.
So not much help with five flashes....
