I went thru this a couple of days ago. The repairman change the bulb and my TV was fix in 15 Min. I too have a Sony 60 inch WEGA. Now that I know I can change the bulb myself, but there's a hazmat issue on the bulb. goog luck.

Hi, I had the same problem on my Samsung.
I removed the rear cover and cleaned the cooling fans, there were (2), it has worked fine ever since.
Be careful of course working with electrical boards.

Unfortunately that's an indication of the crt going bad in a Sony.
You can turn the G2 voltage down on the flyback or have a tech rejuvenate the picture tube but either of these are only a temporary fix..
The flyback is the rather large transformer with a red (anode) wire coming from it and attaching to the crt. (looks like a suction cup).
There are two adjustments on the back of the FBT, one is screen (or G2) the other is focus. With the unit on turn the G2 counter clockwise just a little and the picture will get slightly less bright. That should stop the picture from blinking out - or doing so as often. But again, it's only temporary!
Good thing Santa's almost here... :)

If your set was manufactured around July 2005, you may need a firmware upgrade to solve this issue. On the Sony website you can enter your model # and serial # to see if you TV is affected. If so, it is easy to have done and may be free from Sony. It sounds like the issue they described in the writeup on the required formware update. I had mine done within few months of when i bought it (purchased in Dec 2005) and it has been working flawlessly since.

This sounds like a repair issue. I do not believe there is any in-home troubleshooting that you can try that will fix that particular issue. I would call Samsung tech support to see what their opinion of the problem is. Their number is 800-726-7864.
