    The red light for bulb replacement is not on or flashing. I guess it could be the bulb since it is almost 5 years old. It would not hurt to try.

The first thing to do as a consumer is replace the lamp as that is most likely the culprit. If the lamp fails to fire correctly, you will loose sound. Please take a moment to rate my answer...Thanks..

I have a Sony Grand Wega rear projection TV model KDF-42WE655 and suddenly have no piucture and red light on front is blinking.


Hi.
blinking of standby light shows that your television has entered its protection mode. There may be some fault on its circuitry. Its is often called as self diagnosis indicator. Please count the number of blinks for us to help or guide you on what to do.

The picture goes off, the power/standby light


Sony KDF-60XS955 picture goes and power/standby light light flashes


Hi,

Most likely you have bulb failure. First step in troubleshooting is "Change the Lamp or Bulb". Lightning, power line bumps and collisions with vacuum cleaners can all shorten lamp life. Rough handling in shipment can also happen without your knowledge.

+90% of all Sony LCD Rear Projector "No Picture or Intermittent Picture" faults are related to bulb failure.

If new lamp does not improve the situation, then hands-on troubleshooting by someone that has parts and knows how the unit works is the only practical remedy.

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.
