I think TV on for minute or so, goes to standby and again power up, show picture for minute and again standby.
If above are symptoms then its time to replace lamp in TV.

Let me know if symptoms are different.

55 inch Sony Wega rear projection tv...only stays powered on for a few minutes then goes blank, green light steadily burns and the picture is dark. Is it overheating? What do I need to do to fix this?


If its the model indicated here or one similar(kdf-55xs955) you may be seeing a lamp that is about to fail.

A lot of these just before lamp failure will get very dark and if bad enough the set will even shut off.

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.

My Sony comes on then both sound and picture goes black.


After being on a little while, the screen goes black (no audio as well) for 20 to 30 seconds. Green light stays on. Then, picture comes back on and takes a couple of seconds to get up to full brightness. About 5 seconds or so after the video comes back, the audio returns.

Until this morning, has only happened a couple of times a day, now happening more often. About 3 times in last 20 minutes.

KDF-E55A20 is about 3 years old.

Sony KDF-E55A20 Lamp Shut Down with no blinking lights


If you TV is about 2 1/2 yr you probably need a new lamp they only last about 3 yrs. Mine popped one night and now picture comes in for about 1 min and goes out, I ordered a new lamp today they run $199. There is also a know issue with the thermal fuse. The part cost about $3 and if you know a lil about electronic you can replace it yourself
