Question what to do with blinking Carrier split unit

Lost power during a severe typhoon. After two weeks of no power our 9Kbtu
Carrier Split Unit is on the blink! What do we do- using the remote control- we turn the unit on and the indicator light on the unit blinks 5 times consecutively. If we turn off the unit at the breaker in the electric panel box then turn it on via remote the unit works for anywhere from 3 to 5 minutes then shuts off and blinks. What do we do??

No doubt something was damaged during the storm. Do you have an owners manual? The error codes should be listed in there. See if you can get the unit running again and listen at the outdoor section. Can you hear both the compressor and outdoor fan start? Does the fan seem at normal speed and airflow or slower? I'm guessing that the unit is probably shutting down on high pressure. Often, during storms, the outdoor fan motor gets drowned.
