Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-52W4100 52 in. LCD HDTV

2 Answers

Picture & sound go off for 1-2 minutes, then return.

Sony KDSR50XBR1 RPLCD - Picture and sound go off after set has been on for 5 minutes. Standby light blinks rapidly, then sound and picture return. Repeats in about 3-5 minutes. Checked all the input connections (cable, DVD); did a reset- nothing helps.

The most likely the TV has a power supply related problem.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

Hi!

Please try disconnecting all the cables from the TV then reconnecting them back after a few minutes. You may also try connecting the power cord from the TV directly to a functional wall outlet. If the issue persists then the projection lamp needs to be replaced.

TV loses picture/sound after 5 minutes then comes back. Repeat


The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; [Exclude the model number], in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

We keep losing sound and picture on our TV


If you haven't replaced the lamp, it is almost certainly time to change it. A weak lamp will cause the TV to play for a short time. As the old weak lamp heats up, it draws more current, and the reflector in the lamp, having become cloudy over time, converts the light into more heat rather than reflected it out into the set. Eventually the lamp draws too much current and the set turns it off, going into a restart cycle. Buy an original Sony lamp, as the aftermarket replacement lamps are known trouble makers. Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!
