Question about Sony KDS-60A2000 60" HDTV

Sony Lamp Cycles Off and On

Recently, the projection lamp on my Sony KDS-60A2000 began to shut itself off then turn back on for no apparent reason. This problem is not source specific. It occurred while watching basic cable TV, DVD and gaming.
The sound is still there, but not the picture.

    same problem for the last month or so, tv turns on fine but after a few minutes the picture goes black, the sound is still there but there is no picture, after 10 or 30 seconds the picture comes back up, this repeats itself every few minutes...any solutions?

    my KDS-55A2020 just started doing the same thing. Some days works, some days picture off then on a few times then works fine, some times cycles for hours, about 50 seconds on, 36 seconds off. I cleaned the back which was quite dusty and worked fine the first day then started to cycle again today.

    Same problem here. It's gotten to the point of being ridiculous now. Picture is on for less than a minute and then off for two minutes. Then the cycle repeats. Sound is fine. And no flashing lights.

Sony KDS-60A2000 - no sound.


If you are lucky, a new lamp will restore the sound as well otherwise you may require a new ballast unit as when the lamps explode, the supply board sometimes destroys itself.

My sony is turning on and off when I turn it on. The picture and sound appear and disappear. What is wrong and do you have the part..


Hi,

The most common cause of picture disappearing and returning in a Sony LCD Rear Projection TV is a faulty bulb. Replacing the bulb is the first step in troubleshooting this type of problem in KDS-60A2000 and all other Sony Rear Projection LCD TVs.

I HAVE A SONY KDS-60A2000 WONT TURN ON. RED LIGHT BLINKS THREE TIMES. TRIED NEW BULB. NO DIFFERENCE


Hi,
3 times red light blinking indicates that Lamp Cover has not been fixed in its location properly after lamp replacement.
Please make sure lamp cover (its first thing that was removed to replace lamp) is installed securely.
Thanks.

Sony kds-r50xbr1 turns itself off and then green light blinks 52


I too have a Sony KDS-R60XBR1 tv and the issue that you are experiencing is due to one of your fans in the rear of the tv is not working.  The tv automatically shuts off in protective mode.  Make sure the POWER/STANDBY light is blinking and not the lamp light below it.  Is the power/standby blinking 4 times in red? If, yes then its a fan that needs to be replaced.  If its the lamp light blinking then you need to replace the lamp.  The lamp is easy to replace by ordering the lamp either from Sony for $250 or find it cheaper for approx. $150 from other DLP sources and replace youself by following your manual.  I hope this helps you.
