Question about Sony KDF-E60A20 60 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Picture and sound stopping and resetting

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.

The screen will not stop blinking. I can barely see the picture. Is there a reset button?


No reset button. Sounds like a bad Z-sustain board, everytime I've had a failure with a very dark picture, that has always been the board to fix it.

My magnavox 42mf438b lcd tv will be fine for about 10 minutes when i turn it on, then the screen goes completely black but it still has sound. it stays like this even if i turn it off and back on. i can...


that set is highly rated by users .. it first came out in early 2009 (i think) so you might check to see if any warranty remains ... the display is illuminated by several lamps .. each lamp has its own high voltage inverter .. all the innverters are powered by an output of the low voltage power supply (often 18 volts)... i would suspect a problem with that low voltage power supply.. either a bad capacitor or a thermal issue .. .. ..

Tv is on, after a few minutes it goes black and there is no sound. The indicator lamp is still green and stays solid the entire time. Without turning the TV off, in about a minute, you hear a small buzzing...


Someone else gave me the tip as I had the EXACT problem, but no buzzing. Unscrew the panel on the front bottom of the tv. Once that is off, there is another screw that opens a little panel. Unscrew the single screw with an allen wrench and pop out the bulb and casing. Mine was full of dust etc. Used an LCD cloth, but compressed air would do the same thing, put it back together and it works great!

Need a solution for no picture and sound


Replace the lamp. This is common with sony projection lamps when they go bad they start this turning off and back on. Replace the lamp should fix all of you worries.
