It appears you have a bad lamp. This is comon when a lamp goes bad. You can buy a new lamp direct from Sony on their website or an ASC can install it for you however you will need to pay them to do this. Good Luck and a good rating would be appreciated.

TV turns off by itself and then comes back on usually within 20 - 30 seconds later. Happens a lot.

hello kittylou2
its hard to tell from distance what really wrong, but sounds to me like a cold soldering. pls let your tv check by local electronics service or authorized sony service.

You may have either failing 24vdc power supply or the backlight inverter board.

Sony turns off and on every 30 seconds

A thermal fuse may either be defective or IS working correctly due to the set overheating from dust/dirt/poor ventilation. There may be some internal damage from a fall or a move (sudden and sharp shock). Could also be a loose plug/connector.

Screen goes dark, sound goes quiet...

I have a sony KDF-E60A20 projection tv. The picture would go out for about 30 seconds and come back on. It would continue to cycle this way. The green power light would stay on and not flash. The sound would go off when the picture went out and come back on when the picture came back on. I tried taking the bottom cover off the back exposing the fan and blowed it out with a vacuum cleaner, also taking out the bulb and blowing it out. That didn't help. So I ordered a new bulb from and that's what it was. I have now had it on and off for two days and no problems. Cost of lamp was $107.00 including shipping. Good Luck!

Standby mode

I have the same television. Mine would shut off and turn back on every 30 seconds. Even though the LAMP light wasnt coming on in the front of the set, I replaced the lamp with a factory Sony lamp and have had no problems since. The sets picture is beautiful and I have had no problem since.
