Yes, if you have not replaced the lamp since you purchased this TV.
Lamps usually last about 6000 hours.
I've seen lamps last much longer than 6000Hrs, it all depends on the usage.
Remove the lamp from the TV and do a visual inspection, see if there's a crack on the glass or the bulb.
If the TV is few years old then the Lamp may be bad.
For a new Lamp: 800 638-3328
DO NOT BUY the lamp from ebay
Good luck to you.

It's in standby mode.
Do a reset and see what happens
While holding down the reset button on the remote
Press the power button on the tv
(The tv will turn itself off the back on)
Now release the reset button
It sounds like the lamp needs replaced.
Please rate this a fixya

bad lamp driver, if you have already replaced the lamp. If not, try replacing the lamp WITH AN ORIGINAL SONY LAMP!. Don't waste time with cheap replacements, you get what you pay for.

5 times blink code means Lamp Driver error that can be problem of ballast supply or Lamp.
How old is this TV? Have you replaced Lamp recently?
Service manual of TV can be downloaded from HERE for small fee.
Let me know your finding to provide you more info.

Testimonial: "Thanks so much for the information. I will replace the lamp and let you know the results."
My Sony Wega KDF-55XS955 55" was going on for 1-2 minutes then going black with no sound and after a few minutes would come back on. After reading all the posts and talking with a repair guy I replaced the bulb and that fixed the problem.
