Question about Sony KDS-60A2020 60" HDTV
I have a 60in Sony KDS-60A2020 LCD rear projection television that is only 2 years old. The picture keeps going out intermittently for about a minute, comes back on, then goes out again. The sounds remains on, there's no popping or indicator lights coming on. A few months back the lamp went out and I replaced it. About 2 months after that, this started happening. We thought there was interferance somehow so we changed the electrical outlet and all was fine for a couple of weeks and it started again and hasn't stopped. We've unplugged all components from the tv but it still happens. We've had the thermister and fan replaced but that didn't work either. The repairman said my tv does not have an inverter board and thinks the bulb I bought (not Sony but "compatible") is the culprit. Should I spend the money on another bulb?
Yes replace the lamp, sony units have certain specs that the lamp must meet to operate correctly. If the Lamp you purchased is made by LTI, these lamps do not last long as they are poorly manufactured. Look at the bulb and see who is the maker if its says LTI then replace with a Phillips brand that meets spec's for sony.

Yes replace the blub with a sony original lamp. The lamps sold as replacements such as LTI these lamps are not good for use as they don't fully meet the specs for sony televisions. Look at the lamp manufacture on the bulb itself if you see LTI as the manufacture then replace the lamp with a Phillips brand lamp.
