    The sony KDF-E55A20 55inch Grand wega model, which is only 2 years old is experiencing problems in that the picture goes off for about 45 seconds, every 2 hours. The lamp, as suggested earlier should not be the issue re: the age of the tv, which is not on all day long. Could the outlet, which one of the outlets, is not working, possibly be the issue with regards to power, or do you feel it is still the lamp? , or something entirely different.

My 3LCD model KDF-E55A20 is having problems of screen going black for minute or two then picture coming back. Had lamps replace about 3 yrs ago any suggestions


Hi I think you have two problems right now one of them is the lamp, if you replaced it 3 years ago.
two the ballast board I think that your ballast has gone bad and it is not sending enough energy to maintain the lamp on and that is the reason it turns off and on.
At this point I would have to say replace the lamp and the ballast and your TV will be working just fine

Capacitors have a quite predictable life that is dependent on temperature, voltage and ripple current. Electrolytics, when they fail, often blow out the top, or just make it bulge. Radial ones should all have flat tops. Axial are a bit more difficult. Next thing is to measure the voltage before and after any voltage regulators. 78xx are positive regulators, 79xx are negative.

Also own one Sony LCD...LOL..it's in the kids room! Even Sony's best XBR $5000 plus 50" tv does not compare to a Panny THX!

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.
