    Sony KDF-50WE655 -- Set won't turn on, and Power/Standby light blinks 10 times followed by a 3-4 second pause and then repeats 10 blinks, and so on.

    I have unplugged set, waited 5 minutes and plugged back in, but re-set did not work. When I press the ON button on front, or on remote, green light comes on for about 3-4 seconds and the cooling fan starts to turn up, then the whole thing shuts down and the red light blinks 10 times as before.

    Mine blinks too. It blinks 10 times each interval. I cannot turn on the tv at all. What could be the problem? How much should it cost to fix? This happened to me a month after my warranty ended. :(

Problem was solved with the replacement of the "G-1" PCB (p/n A1601117A). This was done by a technician doing troubleshooting and talking with Sony. 
Luckily, it was covered by warranty. He said the entire service call plus parts would have been about 400-500 dollars without warranty. He also changed the projector bulb as it was still working after 3 years, but near the end of it's life. He suggested that Sony brand lamps last 2-3 times as long as "after market" lamps.

Power light flashing/ no picture

I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.
