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 GRAND WEGA KF-50WE610 can't turn on TV screen.


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.

Thanks,
Dan

Sony KF-50WE620 - 5 Flashes


5 flashes indicates ballast malfunction. 4 flashes indicates fan not working. I would replace the big fan in the back because it is a common failure for this model. But befor this check to see if the lamp door is warped from overheating. If it is the wiring on the balast good be burnt and the light engine could be damaged.

Sony KDP-65WS550 flashes when you try to turn it on


No the DLP units can flash more than 8 times. 9 blinks mean Zero Crossing detector which means diode number D6166 or D6114 is open they are on the A board.Let me know if you need any further info.
