Question about Sony KDF-E55A20 55 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

When I turn on the Sony KDF-E55A20 it starts up fine, then after 30 seconds, it goes blank, (green light is still on) then after 30 seconds, it comes back. I folloed the steps to clean the lamp (removed it, vacumed both sides) and it did not help. I looked at the lamp and it looks fine, and i dont have the lamp light flashing, so i dont think it is a matter of replacing. Im frustrated and sad. Josh

Ts is your Lamp that is near to end of its working life span and causing problem. A weak lamp gives this symptoms in Sony tv.
I'm sure lamp has not been replaced in last 2-3 years, right?
A broken lamp will give you lamp light on at tv front but weaker lamp wont turn on that light but gives same symptom.
Replace lamp to fix the problem, buy original Sony lamp for good picture in tv and avoid low priced bulbs.

Hi This is most likely the inverter panel that drive the CCFL's (Backlight tubes) or the backlight tubes themselves, I'm afraid I can't help with the diagnostic test or service menu.

hope this helps

Picture goes out, comes back, sound is fine


I found several instances of this probllen on various forums, and determined that it is the bulb after all. It seemed that a bulb should either work fine or be burnt out, so I thought it might be something else, but so many other customers had this identical problem that I am 99% sure it is the bulb. I found a replacement bulb with housing for about half the price of the Sony Store, so i ordered it. In the meantime, another customer offered a suggestion to try adjusting the Power setting to Power Saving instead of Standard. I tried this last night and the picture worked fine! I will replace the bulb when it arrives and keep the old one on hand in case this happens in the future. Thanks to all of the posters out there!!!

The first thing I suspect is the projection lamp. If you haven't replaced it in the past year or two try that first. the part number is A-1085-447-A. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thanks...

My Sony comes on then both sound and picture goes black.


After being on a little while, the screen goes black (no audio as well) for 20 to 30 seconds. Green light stays on. Then, picture comes back on and takes a couple of seconds to get up to full brightness. About 5 seconds or so after the video comes back, the audio returns.

Until this morning, has only happened a couple of times a day, now happening more often. About 3 times in last 20 minutes.

KDF-E55A20 is about 3 years old.

Same problem: picture goes out


Sounds like you need to replace the lamp. The owners manual should show you how to replace the lamp. You can order the lamp through Sony on their website. Good Luck
