    THE LAMP WAS 2 WEEKS OLD WHEN THE TV STARTED COMMING ON BY ITSELF. I DO NOT WANT TO KEEP HAVING TO USE THE POWER STRIP TO INSURE THE TV WON'T COME ON BY IT SELF. I AM NOT SURE HOW THE KEYBORD WOULD GET ZAPPED. THE TV IS GROUNDED, AND I DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT ELSE I CAN DO FOR IT.

    I watched that green light with a pad and pencel in hand. I could not get the same pattern of flashes twice. Yesterday I turned on the TV and it worked fine all day. That figures, the repair man is due to come and look at it today. It has been on this morning and never went off once. I'm wondering if someone in our neighborhood has the same kind of TV and remote and is turning off our TV and we are doing the same to theirs. Anyway , can't analyze a problem if it dissapears. Thanks for your help.

Is there a pattern to the number of blinks?
Pay close attention next time and count - then report back.

Thanks!!

How long ago since the last lamp replacement? Those hv lamps have a technical life of 10k hours, but they usually go bad before then. I don't want to make you spend some money on something you don't need but If that lamp that is in there has been in use for close to a year, I would consider trying another lamp. The power problem is separate from the lamp, the key board(where the pow/sound/channel keys are) probably got zapped while cleaning the screen, this is a common problem, but if you want to keep using it like that I don't think it will hurt it any more. Depending of who you buy the lamp from, some suppliers will accept it back if you ask them at the time of your order that you are not sure it will correct your problem.

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...


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.

TV switches itself off after 1 minute standby flahes red to green


there seems to be a possibility that your ballast might defective.. i recommend you replace it. It might not have enough voltage to keep up with the new lamp

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.

Picture cycles off and on


I replaced a burned out xl-2000u bulb with an after-market Philips bulb on my Sony KF60XBR800. After a fews weeks, I started experiencing intermittent black-outs with the "stand by" red light appearing. After a couple weeks it became intolerable. I then purchased an OEM Sony lamp and the problem has been gone for months. I read somewhere that the Sony circuitry monitors either resistance or watts and shuts the thing down for board protection. It was said that it is so sensitive it can can use only the Sony bulb. I'm a believer. If the bulb is going bad, i wouldn't doubt the protection circuit can kick in.

KDF-E50A10 - TV keeps turning off and on


It sounds like it is just the lamp, be sure to replace it with an original Sony lamp, the replacements are unreliable

Tv cuts off and green light flashes


Yup, it seems a lamp problem can give a blinking green light over the 10 times (1 - 10 times for diagnostic codes), but in my case rather than replace the bulb if it works for a minute then resets with the green light blinking, do what I did.
Take the lamp out and inspect it, it has breather screens top and bottom, if it cant breath because there clogged with dust, clean them, and you can remove the screens, use q-tips and clean the inside. I saved the cost of a lamp and it's working fine!

Most likely this is a bad lamp. Very common when the sony lamp is failing to get int. power off.
