My suggetstion would be to keep a small fan cooling the unit.  It is obviously having heat issues I am sure that you could gather.  But weather it is one part or another is impossible to tell.  Most times they will just replace heat related boards.  Depends on how far and how much you are willing to spend.

Hi,
Your tvs lamp is getting over heated. There will be a fan for colling the lamp. if the fan doesn't work properly the lamp will get over heated and the will switch off itself to avoid further damages. Do one thing, Remove the fan from the tv. In the fan there will be a specification sticker. Remove the sicker. Now you can see a hole in the center. its the bearing part of the fan. put one drop of oil in it. You can use any type of lubricating oil. rotate the fan leafs with finger for some time. after that re-stick the spec sticker. insert the fan in the tv. power ON the tv and watch. If the fan is available then try to replace the same. it will not cost a lot. just watch the following video for oiling the fan. its for a PC fan same for all dc fans.
ok

I turn the Tv on and after 2 or 3 minutes the tv turn off and the blue light stay on and the red light start blinking


Most likely the fan in the rear has gone bad and the lamp is overheating and the system identifies this and shuts it down. Check to see if cooling fan is activating on power up.

Problem for Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55WF655. Hello,


5 times Red LED blinks means Lamp Driver Error. (KDF-55WF655)
2 possible reasons, either Lamp is gone or Ballast Supply got bad.
Replace lamp first, in most cases it solved the problem.
How old is this TV and did you replaced lamp recently?
Thanks.

TV turns off


It sounds like you might either have a bad power cord or you might have an over heating issue. Some times the TV will automatically shut off if it senses a fan issue or it starts to overheat. What technology is your set? DLP, LCOS, DILA...? If its under warranty I'd suggest to get someone out asap to take a look at it.

Tv keeps turning off


If it's staying on for just a short period of time it sounds like there is a sensor that is giving the unit a faulty condition (Perhaps for reason or due to a fault in the sensor). There are normally a few temp sensors in the TV around the Lamp and Ballast. They may be bad, or the lamp or ballast is just generating too much heat.
