    Same problem. TV picture and sound cuts off, green light blinks, then TV comes back on about 1 minute later. Problem off and on; occurs sometimes when TV has just been turned on and sometimes after being on while. TV is 1.5 yrs old.

    Same Problem with the 60 inch. TV turns on and off, happens about every couple of hours, takes about 2 seconds to come back on. I have replaced the lamp and it did not fix this problem. I have not read any other potential fix for this issue. My Brother has the 50 inch version of this TV and he also had the same exact issue, he ended up having to replace some mechanical drive which, if not covered under warranty, will cost about $1500. I am going to try and live with it until I read if there is a cheaper fix.

The sony warranty repairman came by this afternoon and checked my KDF-60XS955 for the blinking green light that cycled the picture and sound on and off about every thirty clicks or seconds. After checking a couple of things he said it was the lamp XL-2200 or the ballast. chrismickey

The STANDBY light is flashing on the television and there is no picture or sound. Solution
picture and sound cuts off ,greem stb light keeps  - sp.gif The STANDBY light will flash if an issue is detected within the television. This can sometimes be resolved by simply following the steps below to reset the television.

  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.
If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required. Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.

Picture and sound turn on and off

I believe that model has a logic board in it and that is what it sounds like to me. That is just off top of my head, but I believe if you will notice the standby light it will be blinking so many blinks and stop and then blink again. If so this is a code that you can look up on the Samsung web site and plug in your model and it should tell you what just say ~ 4 blinks means. I worked on so many and it has been a while but I believe the last one I had was a Samsung and I put a logic board in it. If I can be of any further assistance please let me know.

No picture but has sound

The problem can be caused by a bad sustain board (Ysus Zsus) , the popping sound is often caused by a capacitor blowing up.
The TV must be taken apart and tested before eventually replacing sustain boards.

How many blinks do you get? Depending on the amount of blinks you can figure out what the issue is.

If it blinks 6 times you can get the fix at

No power RED Standby LED flashes 6 times/KDF55XS955, KDF60XS955, KDFE55A20, KDFE60A20

They have other fixes for E60A20
