Question about Sony KDF-E55A20 55 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

TV Shuts off and on by itself

Have had the Tv for about 1.5 years, and started noticing this problem just recently. The audio and video both shut down and all you hear is the fan. Then after less than a minute they both come back. It has gotten so bad that you cant even use the TV becuase it does it every couple minutes. Im not sure if the replacing the lamp is the solution becuase why would the audio go out as well? Also if it was the lamp, why when it does work is the picture bright and clear. Anyways, I have tried cleaning the dust covers, doing a system restart, playing with settings, plugging directly into wall, plugging into entriely differnent wall, and none of them worked. Can anyone confirm whether or not replacing the lamp solved the issue?>

Flat panel TV comes on by it's self

It sounds that the voltage output from its internal power regulator board is not proper. Check it.

Unit shuts down after 25 minutes

I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

Element hdtv flx3210 shuts video off after a few seconds.

Send the set back for service.

The power supply most likely failed, or another circuit board has failed and the set is in the protect mode.

I would consider to see if the dealer would exchange the set for a well known quality brand name set and pay the difference.
