The thermal fuse has opened. Unfortunately, its likely that the ventilation system of the TV has been blocked by dust or other foreign matter. The cyclone fan mounted above the lamp housing is prone to this type of accumulation. Check for evidence of overheating in the lamp, lamp housing, and especcially the red wires going to the lamp socket. If they appear scorched, its a safe bet it got very, very hot.

To bring this TV back to life a new fuse needs to be installed, all the fans need to be cleaned, the lamp ballast board may need to be replaced as well if the wires appear to be damaged. Also, if your lamp is not new, it should be replaced too. Botton line here is cost. If you call a service company out, expect to spend a minimum of $300 and as much as a $1000 or more.

Keep your eye out for class-action lawsuits being filed on these TVs. I've seen a few of these actually melt the plastic lamp cavity to the point where it may catch fire.

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.

Sony KDF 55WF655 rear Project tv Power/standby light flashing


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.
