The TV turns on, and works fine so you can see/hear/ the TV, but after about 5 minutes on, the sound and screen turn themselves off for about 60 seconds, and the cycle starts over again.
Any help About how this can be fixed???

Symptom shows it is bulb problem that needs to be replaced too solve tv issue. Existing lamp/ bulb in tv has reached an end of its working life span but still not dead/ broken and causing this problem. Buy Sony original lamp for good picture and replace it. Thanks.
Sounds like your television needs to have the lamp replaced. The XL5300 lamp is part number F-9308-870-0 and retails for $299. You can find generic lamps for sale on the internet, but they generally don't last as long as the Sony original. Encompass has that part listed in stock and their phone number is (800) 638-3328. Your owners manual should explain how to replace it, but if you want to hire a technician to come to your house and install it, the labor should be minimal and take 5-10 minutes.
I recently had a similar problem after replacing my lamp the set would work for 22 mins then go into standby for 30 sec then come back on, then repeats, I decided to experiment with the lamp housing, I removed the new lamp, unscrewed the top of the lamp that holds the actual bulb then switched out the main housing (bottom part) with the original housing, that seemingly has corrected my problem, you may want to try if the replacement lamp did not come from Sony...good luck
no, had the same problem. Its the lamp ballast also called the lamp power block. It supplies power to the lamp, any how some repair shop wanted $450 to fix it, so i ordered the part from sony, part #146879816 ($116.25), trust me this is the part I double checked with many different places. Any how fixed it my self took about 15 minutes, just take the back cover off and the part is right there just kind of follow the screws and the 3 wires, super easy job, I suggest you replace the bulb at the same time, dont by a cheap bulb just get it from sony
Tried to turn it on? Sounds like you need to replace the lamp. However, I got an additional week out of my unit. Although poorly dimmed and the red Lamp light blinked constantly for that one week, at least it gave me enough warning to seek out a replacement. But so long as you're not mistaking the Power/Standby or Timer light for the Lamp light then I would have to agree with you.

You probably just need a new lamp. If your tv is that old, im sure you do. I just got a new one from Projector Lamp Services (relampit.com) it works great... Only took me a few mins to install it too. I missed my TV!!!
if the lines on your screen looks anything like the image below, you do have a problem with the lcd, problem is you need to replace what is called the light engin. unfortunatly the price of this part is just about as much as a new replacement tv. Get a sceond opinion fron a sony service center near you, as i cannot see your picute. good luck
