Question about Sony KDF-E60A20 60 in. LCD HDTV

2 Answers

SONY 60" KDF-60XS955 power goes off and on every 30 sec I have the same 30 sec on/off problem with a Sony KDF-E60A20 60 in. HDTV LCD Television.  However, the actual power does not go off completely, just the video and audio for 30 sec. I'm dealing with the service/support line now. Luckily, they say that the warranty is 18 months on a LCD rear-proj and not the 12 months that the warranty card states. Additionally, I purchased this TV from Costco who gives another 24 month warranty beyond the manufacturers 18 months. Costco ROCKS!! I'm not sure what the problem is quite yet, but I hope they can get it fixed soon. Any ideas? Do I need a new bulb? Thanks for the assistance.

I had this problem and ordered a new replacement XL2200 lamp from Sony and that fixed it. By the way, the lamp installs from the front so there's no need to pull your TV out from the wall. Look at you manual, it is accurate in this respect. My lamp only lasted about 15 months. It costs $200 plus about $16 to ship. ou can order direct from Sony on line service.

My tv turn on about 1 muniute than black out ?plese tell me what's problem with tv Sony KDF-E60A20 60

Hi Tommy, it sounds like the inverter board is going out. Depending on age of television, it would be worth getting an estimate from service company. Try and recall if there has been any power outages, power surges, electrical strikes, etc. that may have caused board to fail. If hit by lightning, home owners insurance will pay a portion of repair bill.
Hope this helps,

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.
