I fixed my problem by removing the lamp and vacuuming the hell out of the hole where the lamp lives and also getting all of the dust out of the rear ventilation grids with my vacuum. I put the old lamp back in and what do you know the TV has worked perfectly ever since. My lamp was over a year old and did not show any signs of hazing on the lens that you might see on a lamp that has a ton of hours on it. I just thought I would try to put it back in before I spent a couple of hundred bucks on a new lamp.
TA DA problem fixed.

TIGHTEN THE BULB --AFTER YOY CLEAN THE DUST OFF THE BULB VENTS ON THE BULB ITSELF. PROBLEM SOLVED. EASY--CHEAP. Hey it worked for me. My picture was turning off blinking 29 times for picture 37 times for audio. This was the first issue with my KDF-55WF655 since I unwrapped it almost 5 years ago......... ITS STILL ON!!! I hope this helps someone.

Had exact same problem with my KDF-55WF655 and put in new projection bulb assembly and no more cut out plus picture is much brighter even on standard. Next time will just by bulb and install in old assembly as it looks straight forward now that I know what assembly looks like. Got about 7200 hrs. out of OE projection lamp and almost 4 years service.

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?

Its not the green light that you should be count but the red. How many times is it blinking? Here is a quick update of the errors that are most common.
3x - Lamp switch not engaged
4x - Fans issue
5x - Lamp
6x - Thermal fuse
