The picture intermittently blacks out but there is no malfunction with regards to the indicator light. Please help!! My tv screen intermitantly blacks out (sound and picture), but the tv is still on. it will come back on but repeats the blacking out with no sound. Is this the lamp or a different problem? Thank you.

    No, the lamp light is not on. The power light turns red, but nothing else lights up. Is this the light engine? I really hope it is just the lamp, but it doesn't make sense that the sound stops working as well. Thank you!

    Check out this forum. All of these people have a Sony LCD and have the same problem. It is a very common problem and obviously a manufacturing issue. To fix this you will have to buy a part that costs $600-$900 plus the time it takes for the person to install it...so you might as well buy a new tv from what I have read.

Your lamp is probably going bad. Is your lamp indicator light blinking? New lamp for this costs around $200. Don't buy a bare bulb to save money. Buy the one with the casing. You pop the old one out, pop the new one in. DO NOT touch the lamp itself.

    I didn't notice the first time that you said you had no sound. It's likely NOT the lamp.

Its most likely an intermittent lamp. The lamp door is located behind the front panel. The front panel can be removed after loosening the two thumb wheels located on either end of the TV in the rear. Observe the light coming from the area around the lamp door. If you see that the light is going out, its the lamp. You can also access the self-diagnosis menu by using the remote control. Start with the TV off. Push the "mute", then the number 5 button, and then the volume down button followed by the power button. When the picture appears, the menu will been visable. If there is a failure with the lamp, or a fan, or many other areas in the TV there will be a number value to the right of the parameter that indicates the number of times the error has occurred.

TV Picture Goes Black


I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions
