Question about Sony KDS-60A2020 60" HDTV

1 Answer

Sony KDS-60A2020 turns on, then pic goes off and on off and on.

TV turns on like normal, then the picture goes off (sound stays on) and on every 30-60 seconds, and continues to do this.

The fan is running - but not as loud as it use to.

TV is right at 2 yrs. old.

    My Sony 60 inch HDTV KDF-60XS955 has the same proble. The screen goes black while it is on and comes back after few seconds. This happens few times in a day and does not happen for another few days. This is continuing for the last three months.

Hi:
Replace you lamp or have it replaced by a technician. Lamps are only good for about 6500hrs depending on use. Thats about close to 3yrs.

I have a Sony KDS-60A2020. TV went blank. No flashing lights. I have sound, but the screen is blank.


have you tried a power reset, unplug all components from the TV unplug it from the wall, then push and hold the power button for about 30 seconds, then plug all components back in, plug it into to wall then turn it on again.

I have the Sony KDS- 60A2020 60 inch TV. Recently, my picture has appeared more yellowish. Everyone on it looks like there dark yellowish or have fairly dark (bronze) sun tans. I changed my lamp yesterday...


I have a older 2006 SXRD rear projection TV. I had the same problem after the TV warmed up this yellow tint started in the corner and crawled its way down the TV. It turned out that Sony had a recall on the optic block of the TV. If you replaced the Lamp and adjusted the color this kinda sounds like the same problem. Here is a link explaining it. In this article it shows up as a green haze and blob, but in my TV it manifested as a yellow tint.

Hi,

There are 2 common causes of a Green Tinted Picture in Sony 60A2020 and other Sony LCD Rear Projection TVs:

  • HD cables from cable box or other source faulty or not tightly connected.
  • Optical Engine Failure.
    This link shows what some Sony Optical Engine Faults look like.

60in Sony KDS-60A2020 LCD rear projection picture goes on and off


yes replace the lamp, sony units have certain specs that the lamp must meet to operate correctly. If the Lamp you purchased is made by LTI, these lamps do not last long as they are poorly manufactured. Look at the bulb and see who is the maker if its says LTI then replace with a Phillips brand that meets spec's for sony.

KDS-60A2020 picture is intermittent. every minute


This sounds like a power board problem. It is likely that capacitors on the board are failing so they can only store enough charge to properly supply DC current to the video board for a brief time. A shop will most likely suggest that you replace the power supply board entirely. If it were my TV I would remove the board and replace the bad capacitors for a few dollars myself. Depending on your experience with electronics and soldering you may want to do the same. Otherwise having a shop replace the board makes the most sense - the labor charges to repair the old one would not be worth it.
