Question about Televison & Video
that sounds like the control board is overheating and the graphic chip is getting fault and keeps shutting down.Or the power supply as a bad capacitor, and that can do the same thing .

I too have a Sony KDS-R60XBR1 tv and the issue that you are experiencing is due to one of your fans in the rear of the tv is not working. The tv automatically shuts off in protective mode. Make sure the POWER/STANDBY light is blinking and not the lamp light below it. Is the power/standby blinking 4 times in red? If, yes then its a fan that needs to be replaced. If its the lamp light blinking then you need to replace the lamp. The lamp is easy to replace by ordering the lamp either from Sony for $250 or find it cheaper for approx. $150 from other DLP sources and replace youself by following your manual. I hope this helps you.

One must be very careful of the quality of the replacement lamp. Many of the cheap 'deals' on the web for replacement lamps are substandard. I always recommend that replacement bulbs be the original manufacturers bulb.

SONY IS INVOLVED IN A CLASS ACTION SUITE-problem is a bad light engine-check into this on the web-check your model number to see what they are willing to do.
IT IS A COSTLY REPAIR IF YOU HAVE TO PAY A TECHNICIAN

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.
