    Welcome to Agoraquest!  For the KDF42WE655, 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?

    I don't think it was Sony lamp,I think it was Philips and I bought whole assy. not only the lamp!
    Again I'm not 100% sure about this information (took lamp out to check for brand name on the bolb but there is nothing on it that can tell me that)!
    What do you sugest!
    Thanks.

    I did some research and  was able to find that I bought SONY replacement bolb from Electrifide four months ago!According to their site bolb is made by Sony but  tv came with (OEM Osram bolb)!
    So YES I did buy Sony bolb!

    It looks like the next step would be to replace the lamp driver.  The lamp driver part number is 1-468-798-16.  You may purchase it for $133.69 at https://servicesales.sel.sony.com/ecom/accessories/web/index.jsp.  Use that Part Number search to locate it.
