Thumbs down Red Stand-By Light Blinks 5 Times

Hi everyone
I have a Sony Bravia 32" LCD TV (Model KDL32CX523) and nothing happens when you power it up apart from the red stand-by light blinking 5 times. Does anybody know how to diagnose this fault?
Cheers
Greg
p.s it's not the main board as I've already changed this!

Its something to do with DC voltage fault, check the voltages on the power supply 3.5v, 5v etc, download free service manual from(www. tgohome.com/servicemanuals)

Thanks for the link reddiesel, unfortunately my model isn't on there. I think you're right as it seems to be either a power supply issue or a T-CON fault according to what a lot of other Sony owners have reported on the web.
It's only a year old so I don't think I'll be buying any more Sony products!

A quick update in case anybody else is unfortunate enough for this to happen to them. I can confirm that in this case it was a faulty T-CON board.
