Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XBR950 60" Rear Projection HDTV
My sony wega kdf-e60a20 had exactly the same problem 2mins on 2mins off no flashing red light just the normal green. I suspected a power supply problem. After some research I bought a new lamp for it (even though I was sceptical that this would work) It is extremely easy to change the only tool you need is an allen key wrench (for 1 of the 4 fasteners) Anyway it worked a charm and I realized my picture had been gradually dimming for some time. Haven't had a problem since and the picture is much brighter. Immediately before it started doing this it would just switch off briefly about once an hour. I bought a new lamp on ebay for $115.

It works!! First i took off the front panel. Just check your manual
for instructions, very easy to do. If you do not have a manual just
down load one from google.. The instruction are easy to follow. The
screw they have you loosen with a alan wrench is attached to the
plastic, so you do not have to worry about dropping it inside the tv.
Removing the lamp was simple. once out you will notice on either side
are two small mesh screens. One of mine was 80% blocked with dust, the
other side was only 30-40% covered. I used a vacuum to remove the
blockage, i did not want the dust and dirt to go inside the bulb. i
then cleaned all around the lamp. Reinstalled, and we are go to go.
The kids are happy and i am happier since my wife not be buying a new
total cost of repair $.00
time required to fix, less than 15 minutes.
Also when my TV was loosing sound and picture and then return. I did turn off my TV, then turned on. I nothiced a red blinking light. Mine flashed 5 times. After some reserch, 5 times is video related, bulb or video board. google red flashing light with the model you have and you will find what all the codes mean.
So if yours is flashing 5 times try the above, it might work for you and it is well worth the time before you call a tech and drops hundreds of dollars.
hope this helps.
