    My Sony KDF E55A20 is going off every minute or so (completely blak and no audio) then comes back on slowly after almost 30 seconds. I have had the TV for 3 and a half years with no problems. There are not lights blinking for me either. Anyone find out what the problem is yet?

    Same problem, same unit and similar age.
    I am also not seeing any visual clue on the front panel to suggest a faulty bulb, as the manual suggests.

    The sound also goes away, which makes me question the bulb as the culprit ( why would the sound mute if the bulb is intermittent??)

Follow up: The audio/video blackouts were in fact a precursor to the bulb going bad ( even though no lights on front indicated such as the manual suggests). Replaced it, blackouts went away. Picture is noticeably brighter, so the bulb was showing signs that I didn't pick up on. If you're reasonalby handy, the lamp assembly is an easy fix for approx $200-$250 .

I have a sony tv model kdf-50e2000,and it has a problem with the picture going blank,the only light that on or flashes is the green (POWER) light. when turning the set on the green light blinks as it...


You tv used lamp XL-2400 or also known as F93087500. It is very common for this bulb to fail and have the exact symptom you are experiencing. I cant count how many times I have seen it.. Replace the lamp with either the exact Sony or an OEM and you will be back in business..
Good Luck!!

The picture goes off, the power/standby light


Sony KDF-60XS955 picture goes and power/standby light light flashes


Hi,

Most likely you have bulb failure. First step in troubleshooting is "Change the Lamp or Bulb". Lightning, power line bumps and collisions with vacuum cleaners can all shorten lamp life. Rough handling in shipment can also happen without your knowledge.

+90% of all Sony LCD Rear Projector "No Picture or Intermittent Picture" faults are related to bulb failure.

If new lamp does not improve the situation, then hands-on troubleshooting by someone that has parts and knows how the unit works is the only practical remedy.

Picture flickers on Sony HDTV


Hi,It seems your ballast(board that powers light bulb) is going weak.The ballast was used to provide a lower voltage because lamp didn't use as much as brand new one. A newer one takes more voltage and when ballast doesn't provide as much power it will flicker or produce a dimmer image.I found the one for your tv here: http://www.discount-merchant.com/1091041-KDS-60A3000-p/1091041.htm?Click=48173 Good luck and God bless you!

Sony KDS-50A2000 - bulb replaced but picture still yellow


Hi,It sounds like a light engine problem Sony is having.Basically the light of the lamp goes through tunnels that have mirrors that direct the lamp to 3 main LCD chips,These 3 LCD chips are blue,green, and red they blend to create the image and colors.When they start to fail you'll get color discoloration like what you are getting.You will need to replace the optical block because unfortunately they don't sell the LCD chips by themselves.GOD BLESS YOU!

Lose picture 10-25 sec., keeps soud


I had the same problem with my set. the problem was with the lamp bulb. They don't teel you this, but when a bulb start to go, this can happen. Iuld turn my set on and it would work. After about 45 seconds, the picture would "turn off" (still have the sound). This would last for about 45 - 60 seconds and then the picture woudl come back, but then the cycle would stsart all over again. I took a chance and purchased a new bulb (I bought just the bulb, not the bulb and housing). I took out the current bulb and housing, replaced the bulb in the current housing, and put the bulb/house back in. Problem solved! (have not had the issue since). Hope this is helpful!
