Sony turns off and on by itself

My sony tv turns off after 30 seconds then back on for approx. 30 seconds and off and on. We can't seem to figure it out. We had Sony look at it and they don't know what is wrong.

Re: Sony turns off and on by itself

The lamp almost always causes this problem. The Sony lamp when about to fail will cause the unit to power off interminttently. Replace the lamp and this will correct the problem.

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.

40'' Sony Bravia goes into standby with the light blinking 9 times

I finally managed to solve this problem by unplugging everything - scarts - HDD cables - power etc and left it for an hour. When I turned it back on again the problem had sorted itself out.

My Sony Bravia turns itself off Stand by red light blinks twice.

If you bought it brand new from a dealer, I would take it back or have them come out and look at it. Less than a month old, it is still under the 1 year MFG warranty or the very best a 30 day one.

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.

Sony KDF-E50A10 50 in. HDTV stays on for 25 - 30 minutes then shuts off by itself power stand by light flashes green and turns back on in about 20 seconds by itself. can you help?

Hi, Lamp of TV getting weaker and requires replacement. This shut off by itself will increase day by day until you put new lamp in TV. Always Buy Sony original lamp and avoid aftermarket/ cheap lamp for TV safety.

Contact Sony. There is a bug in the bootup software that causes the resets. Sony will reload the software for free.
