Hello, my 2 year old Sony kdf-55wf655 rear projection 55? TV. will come on (pitcher and sound) 4 about a minute then shuts down, after about 10sec the then red power light(not the lamp light witch has not come on as of yet) turns green and flashes about 30 times\sec and the TV. Comes back on, then it starts cycling on of over and over. If it is the lamp time telling me to replace lamp then how do you reset the timer? Jim Mattos DAVIS CAL [email protected]

Re: my sony tv will not stay on
If you replace the lamp and need to reset the Lamp Timer Reset procedure is:
With The Set In Standby Press Display, 5, Vol Up, Power on the remote control
Press Jump 3. Or,
To Display The Lamp Time Press 2 Nine Times.
To Reset Press 3, Mute, Enter. One of these should work on your model. Make sure you replace the bulb first. There is a possibility that the ballast could be damaged by a defective bulb as well.

The projection lamp,the sign of it life is over.The projection lamp been in the tv about 1 1/2 or 2 years,used the tv on and watches at least 4 or 5 hours a day?It time,to replace it,with a new projection lamp.
This usually means the Lamp is failing. Replacing the Lamp usually fixes it. I would only use a Sony Replacement.
You can order one from Sony at 1800-222-SONY or you may be able to pick one up from a local Sony Retailer.
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.
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.
TIGHTEN THE BULB --AFTER YOY CLEAN THE DUST OFF THE BULB VENTS ON THE BULB ITSELF. PROBLEM SOLVED. EASY--CHEAP. Hey it worked for me. My picture was turning off blinking 29 times for picture 37 times for audio. This was the first issue with my KDF-55WF655 since I unwrapped it almost 5 years ago......... ITS STILL ON!!! I hope this helps someone.
