Question about Sony KDS-60A2000 60" HDTV

Open Question

No picture or sound on kds60A2000 Sony ProjectionTV....

I have a SXRD, kds60A2000 Sony ProjectionTV. I replaced the lamp, which was broken and the problem remains. I don't know if some other problem broke the bulb, but it was over 2 yrs old. There is no picture or sound. The fans click like they want to start but they dont, and I see the flashing lights 3x then stops then 3x again over and over again. At first it was the lamp light. After the lamp was changed the lamp light stopped flashing. Now it's the power led that flashes red 3 times. Does that mean that the TV isn't getting power for some reason? Help I thought Sony was a good brand but they are getting sloppy. I paid more than 3k for their latest model which was in 11/06. I havent had the tv for even 3 yrs. yet. Please help me before I have to spend more money.

    I have the same problem but the power led flashes red 4 times after turning green and refusing to come on.



    I too replaced my lamp then experienced this problem. It was suggested in another post that it may be the cooling fan... I intend to look into this. Have solved the problem once before (about a year ago) by taking the back off, removing the fan enclosure and cleaning / vacuuming but this is not really a safe thing to do as you can get electricuted if you touch the wrong component.



    Am having the same problem again now and an even more thorough cleaning job enabled me to power up the TV for just 1 night of viewing this time... back to 4 red lights the very next morning. It was a 11-12 month fix the first time.

SOURCE: sony sxrd bulb doesnt last 9blinks

IF SET HAS ERROR 9 THEN THE S1 and S2 board ARE PROBABLY THE REASON. DID YOU USE ORIGINAL SONY LAMPS ? GENERIC LAMPS (ESPECIALLY IN SONY) DON'T LAST. AND IS THE SET IN A CABINET ? I HAVE ALSO SEEN PROBLEMS WITH THE FANS GETTING DUSTY AND THE VENTS ON THE SIDE OF THE SET FILLED WITH DUST.

SOURCE: Sony KDS60A200 won't turn on

yes, the 3 blink error code is a defolty fan, you can take the back of the tv off, it will most likelu be the fan that is faceing you on the left side, it is held bu 4 screws, take it out, (1 plug) and blow it off with canned air, or an air compresser, that will buy you a short time, you will need to order a new one on the sony website, sometimes blowing it out wont work, and sometines it will give you around a week

SOURCE: power light flashed red 4 times then repeats no pic,new bulb/fan!

Check the fan that cools the bulb. It is directly behing the bulb. It should turn on when the power comes on. It apparently has a safety to protect your tv(and home). mine is in the process of going out. looking for online solutions as we speak.

SOURCE: very front screen is scratche

Contact a service center for replacement. Seriously, the 60inch panel has to be removed in order to replace the front film which is no easy feat due to its size. Since it is already scratched though, you might try using a polishing kit to see if the scratches can be buffed out. Will never be back to original unless replaced, but might be worthwhile depending on scratch severity. Check with service center or local electronics retailer for the polish kit. Some rental places may be able to buff the display for you as well, but don't expect a guarantee of results. Worth the try though.

Our Sony TV Model KDS60A2000 screen is black with only Video 4 on screen, has green lite showing the TV is on, however, does not have picture. Could it be the lamp?


It could be but if it is the lamp you wont be able to see anything on the screen, the screen would be black. You sould check the lamp if it looks old and burned out you may want to replace it. If you do replace it make sure not to touch the glass lens on the new lamp.
