Question about Sony KDF-E60A20 60 in. LCD HDTV

2 Answers

Kdf- e60a20 Hi, My 60 inch Sony projection model # KDF-E60A20. Purchased March of '06. About 1 year and a half ago she started giving me problems. Every 30 secs or so tv would go "black" and no sound for about 30 secs and then back on for about 30 secs and so forth. some times the issue would correct itself but only for days or even a couple of weeks at times but problem always returns. was told by a technician that issue ws not the lamp. was told by Sony that it was the "lamp driver" (power box). bought and replaced it but issue again only corrected itself for a couple weeks then back again. is it in fact the the lamp or can u figure something else is wrong. please help and thanks in advance. Divine

I may be late with this but it souonds once again ike dust in and on the bulb cage. These TV's will turn off by themselves if they over heat. The extra dust(not much) can/will cause the TV to heat up and shutdown for a few seconds to a minute. Depending on the time of year and location of the TV can vary.

Try removing the bulb and cleaning it with compressed air and a micr fiber towel. Of course don't touch the blub itself as the skin oils will cause it to break.

Replace lamp in tv because symptom shows lamp is near to end of its working hours life and causing that problem.
If lamp has not been replaced in tv in last 2-3 years, its time to replace it to solve the issue.
Lamp replacement procedure is easy and written in user manual.
Thanks.

This could be caused by dust on the bulb. Dust can cause the unit to over heat and will shutdown for a few seconds to a minute and then come back on when it has cooled down. This time can vary depending on the location of the unit and the temputure in the house. The dust becomes hot and so the Thermal unit shutsdown for a short while and then comes back on.

Clean the bulb by removing the cage and using compressed air and a micro fiber towel and install back intot he unit. Make sure you follow the Sony Maunal. Also make sure not to touch the bulb as the oils from your skin will cause it to burn out quickly.
