Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF60XBR800 60" Rear Projection Television
We have a rear project TV and it recently started doing something weird. The sound and picture turns off for about 30 seconds and then will come back on. The picture returns about 5 seconds before the sound returns. The TV will then only stay on for about 1 to 3 minutes before doing it again. The green power light is still on while this is happening.
If you haven't replaced the lamp, it is almost certainly time to change it. A weak lamp will cause the TV to play for a short time. As the old weak lamp heats up, it draws more current, and the reflector in the lamp, having become cloudy over time, converts the light into more heat rather than reflected it out into the set. Eventually the lamp draws too much current and the set turns it off, going into a restart cycle. Buy an original Sony lamp, as the aftermarket replacement lamps are known trouble makers. Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!
