Question about Sony KDF-E60A20 60 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

I have this sony kdf-e60a20

The picture turns off and on every 30 seconds i think. I tried taking the lamp out and cleaning it, put it all back in and it does it again. When this problem started i didnt even notice if the lamp light is on. All i know is when it goes off and on the power light stays on and i notice from behind the tv that the lamp is off and comes back on with it. Can you help me please?
Thanks.
James

Lamp is monitored by an over-current protect circuit. When the lamp starts drawing a little more current than normal, the set starts shutting off the video and audio then in a couple minutes restrike the lamp. Unique to sony WEGA's, replace w/ new type xl-2200u, you should be o.k.

My Sony KDF-E60A20 will turnoff (Picture & Sound) for about 25 seconds and then turn back on again. This will go on for a while. It may run for a long time then goes through this cycle again

I have a Sony KDF-E60A20...it blink red 5 times and video or audio. It happen all of a sudden...what could be the problem?


5 is a bad lamp ballast . but you should check the lamp first. those tv's don't always detect ballast trying to start the lamp correctly. especially if its even been repaired before . most service poeple dont put the hv detect wire back in the correct place so when the lamp goes bad the tv thinks the ballast is bad. listen for a little short buzz or crackle noise from the back of the tv when you try to turn it on . the buzz noise last about 1 second and should happen about every 30 secoinds 3 times . if you hear it only the lamp is probly bad. or its a bad ballast

Screen goes dark, sound goes quiet...


I have a sony KDF-E60A20 projection tv. The picture would go out for about 30 seconds and come back on. It would continue to cycle this way. The green power light would stay on and not flash. The sound would go off when the picture went out and come back on when the picture came back on. I tried taking the bottom cover off the back exposing the fan and blowed it out with a vacuum cleaner, also taking out the bulb and blowing it out. That didn't help. So I ordered a new bulb from Advancedlamps.com and that's what it was. I have now had it on and off for two days and no problems. Cost of lamp was $107.00 including shipping. Good Luck!

I finally wet out and bought the tv repair manual. Thought the problem had to be more than the bulb because i was losing sound too. Everything in hte repair manual brought me to the bulb or the ballast. I ordered a replacemant bulb. I spent about 150, which included overnight shipping. I replaced the bulb just before Thanksgiving and haven't had any problems as of yet....
