KDS-R60XBR1 Sony Projection SXRD

I have owned a KDS-R60XBR1 Sony Projection SXRD for about 18 months. In the last few weeks, the TV has started to lose its picture and screen and then the green power light blinks for 2 minutes and the TV comes back on. This repeats every 5-10 minutes. I think the TV is experiancing power issues. I have tried replacing the surge protector and plugging the TV straight into the wall. But, it has continued. Any ideas? I have the same problem as KeithK. My unit was shutting down every 5-10 minutes. I thought it was a heat problem so I opened up the back and blew all the dust out. I checked the three fans and they were all operating. At first the unit seemed to work fine but after and hour it started to shut down again. Any suggestions???

The lamp may be starting to go, the symptoms you describe are classic warning signs. You could unplug tv let it cool down and check lamp most likely the glass will not look clear maybe a little milky or smoky in areas..dead give away.

Sony tv kds-r60xbr1 has yellow tint


Sorry to hear this, but your optical block has failed. Sony replaced a ton of these under warranty and then extended the warranty on these SXRD sets so they could replace many more. They even replaced the sets with LCD sets after a class action law suite. This was a "black eye" for Sony TVs and they stopped making the SXRD sets. Your set is vintage 2006 and there is no longer a warranty. You could replace the optical block with a rebuilt one, but the cost would be about the same as getting a new 60" LCD. I would suggest you do the latter.

I had the same problem if it is blinking 4 times like I think it is... it is a problem with one of the fans (there are 4) in your TV.. It is a simple fix... try using an air canister to clean them. It will require some disassembly though.
