Question about Sony KDS-60A2020 60" HDTV

60in Sony KDS-60A2020 LCD rear projection picture goes on and off

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.

    Are you talking about your surge protector? If so try unplugging the monster unit and waiting about 2mins for the unit to reset then replug it back in and see if this solves your problem.

Hi:
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.

Hi,

There are 2 common causes of a Green Tinted Picture in Sony 60A2020 and other Sony LCD Rear Projection TVs:

  • HD cables from cable box or other source faulty or not tightly connected.
  • Optical Engine Failure.

Change lamp note came up on screen. Took care of that. Now the picture is comming in from the sides. Is this a problem with the transformer they speak of?


It's a failing LCD Module "green blob"... Requires Optical Block replacement, around $3000+ new, or hopefully, you bought a five-year extended warranty... Sorry to have to tell you that!

Hi:
Replace you lamp or have it replaced by a technician. Lamps are only good for about 6500hrs depending on use. Thats about close to 3yrs.
