The picture is continuously turning on and off at a rate of about every 28 seconds. Common to all inputs cable/dvd etc.
While the image is present good picture/audio. low speed fan is running at the back of the tv. Green power light is lit and steady
While picture is gone, video/audio both off, all inputs fan is running. green power is lit and steady.
Any thoughts would be appreciated before I call the repair guy in.

    Tv runs for 2 min then looses picture and sound. Green light flashes for 60 seconds and then picture returns. Repeats every 2 min. Thoughts?

It would seem that *********** board is getting too hot hence why the fan is constantly running and the picture cuts out. seeing that the pro blem exists on all inputs tends credance to this. the whole mother board is not at fault but maybe one ore more of the solid state chips are. unfortunately a repairman is the only way too go in this case to fix the problem.

Buy the SONY SXRD model (KDS-R60XBR1, LCoS based.) IF
NOT, I'd surely choose the LCD rear projection Sony
KDF-E60A20. Remembering neither is a plasma, it's
really a matter of what can you afford and how soon
you want it. There are several other threads in this
forum addressing these same two models, check 'em out.

The TV's load could be too much for the power outlet to handle.
try plugging in the TV in another outlet (or directly to the wall if you are using a surge protector or power strip).


do not rate until satisfied.

There is a printed circuit board that controls the LCD display, one of the componets on that board is defective, it shuts the picture off and on as it heats and cools, when it works it heats up and then fails until it cools down, this all happens very fast, you will have to have the whole board replaced, you might find that a new TV is cheaper than the repair, keep that mind before you OK the repair bili and the Technician begins work.

Sony KDF-E42A10 rear projection TV. Won't turn on.


Start by changing the lamp. If you got 5 years out of the old one, count your blessings, most folks only get three. The lamp is designed to be replaced by the consumer. Ebay will carry a replacement for you or you can get it directly from rivervalleyelectronics.net. They've got good prices. The lamp door is on the back. Its really easy, give it a shot.

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!
