Sony KDF-E60a20 loses signal

I just bought this tv and I am having a signal problem. I plug the tv into the wall and I can watch TV (cable) for about 3 minutes because it resets itself and then it loses all cable signal including all the inputs such as DVD player and PS3 from component video. I have to unplug it and wait then start the process all over again. What would make the tv lose signal and have to be reset after every minute or two. It must warm up and pop a breaker inside or something. Please help

I had the same problem. The TV would work for about 2 minutes, then lose audio and video for about 45 seconds, then come back on. This was a constant loop. The power LED would stay lit constant though. I considered changing the lamp as other blogs suggested. Then I thought the problem may be simpler. I removed the lamp, and to my surprise, the lamp screen was full of dust. $5 bottle of canned air, cleaned all the dust from the inside of the TV (including the lamp screen), and low and behold the TV worked great. The lamp did have a burned smell to it, but it still worked great. I would suggest trying this first. Save yourself alot of money:)

I have a Sony Grand Wega LCD projection tv KDF-E55a20 // KDF-E60A20 The TV's image and audio goes off and on while you whatch tv


Hello.
Sony LCD Projection TV can do it when lamp is getting really old. When did you replace the lamp last time?
It should be replaced every 2.5 years of average use.
It could be done by user, owner's manual have info on it.
There is a little chance that problem is originated outside of your TV (like issue with cable box).
To eliminate this possibility simply use another source of signal (like DVD player) and see if TV will act the same way.
If it does - 90% chance that lamp replacement will take care of this issue.
Regards.
Russ.
