Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55WF655 36" Rear Projection HDTV
Just changed lamp. Turned on for about 30 minutes . Then shut off on its own green light flashing then went to red flashing 5 times
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?

Symptom shows tv needs lamp replacement as existing lamp is reaching to end of its working life and causing that problem.
If you have not replaced lamp in last 2-3 years, replace it to fix the tv issue. I can explain why tv shuts down itself and turns back on.
I do not agree with info provided about bulged capacitors in power supply so please do not take off back of tv unnecessarily.
Lamp replacement procedure would be written in user manual and let me know if you need to download manual copy.

Once your television starts blinking the green light, then it means there is a problem inside the unit.
the problem simply is a bad lamp that is why you are having a black screen.
The solution is simply for you to replace the lamp of the television with a new one. To replace this, you will have to unscrew the television open and try to remove the old lamp and fix in a new one. It is very easy.
If you are still having the blinking light, then it means it is not only the lamp that is faulty, there also is a bad capacitor on either the main panel or the power panel of the television that needs to be replaced.
Once the bad capacitor is replaced, your television will be in good condition once again.
Take care and good luck
