KDF-55WF655 Power Issues

When powered on the TV will boot-up properly for about 20 to 60 seconds before beginning what I call the reboot loop. The power/standby flashes for awhile then picture comes back for 20-30 secs and all over again. HELPPPPPP!!!! Called Sony support and the guy just told me he couldn't help, that I needed an authorized service center.

Solution # 1 was no help - I talked to some moron at Sony who said to contact a service person. Waste of 30 minutes.

Here is what I did:

I was having the same problem. I am no expert, but what I read on-line is that it was likely the lamp needing replaced, that the lamp toward the end of its life will flicker and cause the TV to "reboot". I had no Red Lamp replacement light, so I wondered if that was really the problem. But, I bought a replacement lamp for $110 plus shipping, and replaced it last night - TV is working great now. I would try replacing the lamp on yours first yourself (if the lamp is older than 2 yrs), then if that does not work, contact a service person. Don't have a service person replace it, because I have heard many people say they paid $400 for a replacement lamp service, and I did it for under $140 with overnight shipping charge for the new lamp. My original lamp lasted 4 years, so I was lucky to not have this problem sooner. As long as the green light is flashing more than 10 times before the picture comes back on, it is likely the lamp. For 10 or less flashes it could indicate another problem.

Hope this help!

Hi,
If lamp has not been replaced in tv in last 2-3 years, then replace the lamp as symptom shows that lamp has reached to end of its working life span and causing that problem.
Lamp is not dead or broke but weak so you get above said problem in tv.
Thanks.

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.
