Question about Sony KDF-E60A20 60 in. LCD HDTV

Sony KDF-E60A20 HDTV

The screen on my TV goes completely dark for about 1 or 2 seconds. Both the picture and audio go out. After 1 or 2 seconds, the picture and audio both come back and everything is fine. This will happen randomly and without predictability. Sometimes days will go by without incident. Other times it may happen several times a day. Can anyone help? I have had the same problem for the past month. About a month ago, the TV would lose picture and sound for about 30-40 seconds and then come back on. Initially this would only occur a couple of times a day and then the TV would stay on as normal. In the past week the problem has become more frequent. Initially we could just leave the TV on and cable box off (felt like we needed to "warm" up the TV) and that would fix the problem. Today the TV stays on for about 2 minutes and then goes off for about 40 seconds consistently. Anybody know what to do or what needs to be replaced?

Your tv parts is ok.only the solder joint is crack or cold thats why function abnormally,goes off and goes on,due to when voltage is there the solder is hot and connect the parts joint, when voltage extremely hot, due to prolong use it will disconnect the solder joint parts thats why you cannot see picture..its need to reheat the solder joint of all parts affected....power supply section ,,horizontal section,vertical section ..and to microprocessor ic section including jungle ic..
find a tv technician to do the works .in order to avoid high voltage shock this not cost too much because only reheating works....

    i could be the power supply. Bad regulation of the incoming voltage could cause this issue although, to be frank, so could 10 other things but we have to start somewhere. There is a capacitor across the incoming line and nuetral. It can dry up and cause problems. Change it out with one of identical rating.
    I would probably also check the flyback circuit and flyback transformer although now you are getting into a dangerous area, especially if you have no electronic experience.

My Sony KDF-E60A20 loses audio and video in a cyclical manner


Unfortunately, what you're describing is a repair issue. You won't be able to address the problem with troubleshooting. There is a part inside the TV that needs to be replaced. If you're under warranty, this will cost you nothing. If you're not under warranty the cost will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor. However, be warned that the cost could be considerably higher. You should call the manufacturer for your full range of options.

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!
