Question about Sony KDF-E55A20 55 in. LCD Television
I have had this TV for almost 18 months now and about 10 months ago, it would shut off for about and I would turn it back on and it would be OK for the next hour or so. After about a month of this it went away until about 3 weeks ago.
Now it is shutting down every 30 - 45 seconds, staying off for about 25 seconds then coming back on, only to repeat the cycle. I tried to power it down, disconnect from wall etc. but the problem persists.
Do just as the others said pull out the bulb and clen the screens on top and bottom of bulb. BUT you can also prevent this from happening as soon the next time. You need to take off the back of your sony tv. On the right rear as you are looking at it there is a black blower on top that is on top of where your bulb fits in. you need a ninety degree phillups head screw driver. take the driver and take out the 3 screws... use a can of air to clean it out... You would not believe the holy hell dust stuck up in that blower!!!! Like I said, take the back of your tv off. If you are not sure where the bulb is once you get it off just turn it on. It's not going to hurt ya. If you are lazy about taking the blower off you can turn it on and shoot the can of air while the bulb is on but you are going to have to take the bulb out ALOT of times to get the dust out of the screens over and over until no more dust collects
