    When starting to watch the t.v. The screen goes blank and in 30 seconds it comes back on? It goes off again moments later and the problem repeats itself?

    I have the same problem and this tv is less than a year old. I have already replaced a bulb at $200 ( although warranty probably would have covered that as it was within the first year.) I am very frustrated. I thought that the red light on the front was supposed to blink it if were the bulb. And how m any times do you have to replace a freakin bulb on a tv that originally cost over $3000? Dissappointed in Sony. I will be calling them tomorrow and maybe even going to Sam's to speak with management tomorrow.

    I have the exact same problem. It goes off every few minutes, makes a buzzing sound and then comes back on. The green light never goes off.

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 TV.
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.

The problem you have is a failed thermal sensor. Depending on how tech savvy you are you can replace it.They have changed the way the thermal sensor looks but it isnt too bad too put in. Any repair shop should also be able to do this for you.

Part number is 1-910-006-44 Themal Fuse Sony Part.
