Question about Sony KDF-E60A20 60 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

KDF-E60A20, picture and sound go out then re-appear every 30 sec

The tv was purchased sept 2005, KDF-E60A20, I replaced the bulb (with a cheaper internet bulb, laptops for less) and it worked fine for 4 days and then the bulb popped!

I believe it is just that the bulb is old, 4 years old to be exact.

I am currently trying to order a new bulb as I am hoping the replacement bulb was defective. We will see how laptops for less holds up.

Was it just the bulb or the complete lamp assembly? If it was just the bulb you need to handle it with latex gloves to avoid getting oils from your hands onto the lamp.

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.

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...


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.

Sony 60' projection model # kdfe60a20, the picture keeps going out and then back on.


Try taking off the back pannel and spray compressed air on the fand and lamp. There is probably too much dust in the fan and on the lamp, triggering a sensor to go off and you loose your picture. If the sound goes off too, then it my be something more techmical. My tv had the same problem. This is how I fixed it. You can also try replacing the bulb. They are at least half price on the internet than they are if you buy them at a local retailer.
