Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55WF655 36" Rear Projection HDTV

Sony grand wega KDF-55wf655 TV goes into flashing green mode

The TV was working fine all morning. All of a sudden it kept cutting in and out (with a warm up flashing green light). At one point, the lamp light came on, but that has since passed. I only hope it's not the lamp - we just had it serviced and basically rebuilt last year. It took 3 weeks and way too much patience with sony. Any ideas on how to rule out the lamp?

    My power light flashes 5 times, pauses then flashes 5 times over and over. When I hit the power button again, the TV comes on with video and sound then dies, then 30 seconds later it comes on then dies. Over and over.

I was having the same problem. I am no expert, but what I read on-line is that it was likely the lamp needing replaced, that the lamp toward the end of its life will flicker and cause the TV to "reboot". I had no Red Lamp replacement light, so I wondered if that was really the problem. But, I bought a replacement lamp for $110 plus shipping, and replaced it last night - TV is working great now. I would try replacing the lamp on yours first yourself (if the lamp is older than 2 yrs), then if that does not work, contact a service person. Don't have a service person replace it, because I have heard many people say they paid $400 for a replacement lamp service, and I did it for under $140 with overnight shipping charge for the new lamp. My original lamp lasted 4 years, so I was lucky to not have this problem sooner.

Found out the my extended warranty is still active - have a service call in. Will update this solution when the "experts" finally return the call to schedule an appointment. Hope it doesn't take the usual four weeks to get the TV returned in working order. I will keep you posted.

Thanks for your quick reply.

Hi,
If lamp has not been replaced in tv in last 2-3 years, then replace the lamp as symptom shows that lamp has reached to end of its working life span and causing that problem.
Lamp is not dead or broke but weak so you get above said problem in tv.
Thanks.

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.

This would be an error code indicating a problem.  You didn't mention if anything else was going on with the TV as in no picture, or no sound.  If the TV is operating just fine, there could be a bug in the software causing this.  If there is a problem, the best thing would be to contact Sony and relay that error message and go from there.

Ths 5 blinks usually indicate an AKB problem. There is a break in the video path. I'll look up your specific model and post the results here. Please update this if you wish to attempt the repair yourself.
