Question about Sony KDF-E60A20 60 in. LCD HDTV
Picture and sound turn off, then reset and come back on. It does it every few minutes. Is the lamp bad or loose? I tried tightening the screws, and it still does it. I took the lamp out and vacuumed the dust off it. It's not blown, but after reading other solutions, it seems this is a trademark of a "bad" bulb.
I went throught the same ordeal... When your picture goes out usually the light will flash red. The number of flashes usually will diagnose what is wrong. Mine was flashing 5 times. I would lose picture and sound for a bit and then it would repeat. I first took out the lamp and vacuumed it out. If the screen gets clogged it will overheat. This fixed it for about a month. Then same deal. I went and bought the repair manual off ebay and everything pointed to the lamp. when I checked the service menu, mine had about 8,000 hours on it. Manual says good for about 9,000 hours. I bought a replacemant bulb online and paid about 159, which included overnight delivery. I did this back in November. The problem has not returned. The only other source of the problem located in the manual was to replace a part about 269 dollars to 300 dollars.
