No picture when I turn on my t.v, just sound. Is this a bulb/lamp problem? I can see the bulb come on when I turn the t.v on, but no picture. I've removed the bulb, cleaned it & still nothing. If the bulb was the problem, wouldn't it just not come on at all like a normal light bulb?

The most common cause of picture disappearing and returning in a Sony LCD Rear Projection TV is a faulty bulb.

Sony Lamp Gallery shows all Models and Lamps for Sony Rear Projection LCD TVs. KDS-60A2000 uses XL-5200U Lamp.
It could be that the picture tubes have gone down on emission, there is a prcedure that can be tried to bring up the overall brightness but it is just possible that you will loose some picture quality. If it's a 1994 projo tv i am thinking of the three crt system, a gray scale alignment would probably correct the dark condition in your picture, again depending on how far gone is the emission in your picture tubes, if your projo tv is the dlp system, the bad news is that you could be needing some light engine repair. The color adjustment is possible with the availability of a service manual or in the case of the dlp system, light engine repairs or replacement are available from some on line stores.
