Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-42WE655 42" Rear Projection HDTV
5 blinks, pause, 5 blinks, etc. means "Lamp driver error" and the probable cause listed is "Lamp driver defect".This is the starting point for a qualified service technician.Even so, the actual problem may be the lamp. Did you install a genuine Sony lamp assembly?
These sets are bad for the lamp driver and optical block, which Sony has extended a warranty on these sets due to the mass problems that they have had with them. If you haven't contacted them yet please do so and talk to them about a warranty on your set.
Sony tells me that while they extended the warranty through 3/2011, so please hurry on this.
The parts you need run between $225.00 and $315.00 depending on what boards you need. IF Sony won't honor the warranty or at least work with you, you may consider a new set, these will only get more costly to keep repairing. I Believe in Sony, its not all their fault, there were a lot of bad electrical supplies sold to the electronics industry a few years ago and they simply don't last.
