5 Answers

Sony 60' projection model # kdfe60a20

The tv will come on and play for a few seconds, then the picture drops out, (screen turns black and sound is off) then it will come back on first screen then picture. It will repeat this over and over....help! Thanks! Our fire house has a sony KDF E60A20 hdtv and the screen keeps going from a picture to black. We got a new tv and no problems. So we know it is in the tv and not other components.

    I have a 60in. Sony grand wega HDTV KDF-E60A20. when it is turned on, the picture and sound come in great, after about 10 sec, the pic and sound drop out, it will keep on doing this all day. No blinking lights, lamp light is not on, steady green on the power light. Also does this with dvd player. TV is only 1 1/2 years old.

    i thought it may be the heat getting to high so i even used my box fan to cool it but the same thing keeps happening Seems fishy to me that it would be the lamp when it keeps coming back on sounds like the fan has losts its cooling ability partially

    TV goes on and off. It will stay off for about 30+seconds.(just long enough to miss the highlight of a ballgame!) Green light stays lit. No blinking. I can hear something like a sizzle in the back when it comes back on. Some days it happens all the time, other days maybe only a few times. My tv is only 2 years old.

    I am having the same exact problem... but it is not very consistent. It started on Saturday, thought it was the TV Station... didn't do it again until today, which is Wednesday, worked fine in the morning but started this evening. Have only had TV for 2 years. This is very disappointing when you spend so much money on something, it should last longer! I've not tried to fix yet, but I guess will be ordering a bulb.

    Mine keeps going off and on, I cleaned the screens on the lamp, This worked for a couple of weeks. Now its off/on every 30 seconds....The sound too. Is it possible for the lamp to be going bad? If so, would this cause a loss of sound too?

    my tv turn on and off every miniut

  • hockeypops97 Dec 26, 2008

    Video and audio goes out for about 20 seconds, green light stays solid. Started happening a month ago and only happended after TV was on all day, then it got progressively worse happening every half hour, then every 15 minutes or so. I vaccumed the dust from front and back especially around the fan area. Took out bulb and vaccuumed it real good. Worked like a champ for about 2 weeks. Now it is going out every minute. Video and audio go out for about 20-30 seconds and power light stays solid green the whole time. Called sony and they said it's a service call. He ruled out a bad bulb because the audio was going out also.

    Anbody got a solution?

I finally wet out and bought the tv repair manual. Thought the problem had to be more than the bulb because i was losing sound too. Everything in hte repair manual brought me to the bulb or the ballast. I ordered a replacemant bulb. I spent about 150, which included overnight shipping. I replaced the bulb just before Thanksgiving and haven't had any problems as of yet....

    Mike209,



    Turn off the TV!! Make sure the lamp is cooled down!! On the back of your tv you will find 1/2 inch thumb screws one on the far left and far right. Once you loosen those, the bottom front trim of your tv will come off. in the middle you will see another screw on a black bar. It can usually be removed by hand as well. After that, a silver door will come off. This door has a safety switch that will turn off your lamp if it was still turned on. Inside on the the left of the lamp as you look at it you should see a silver alan screw. Once you loosen it the lamp can be pulled out. The screw has a retainer and wont fall off, hopefully. Hope that helps..

We had this exact problem with our Sony KDF E60A20.  At first we cleaned the lamp area.  That worked for about two days and then it started happening again.  We replaced the projection lamp and the television works perfectly now.  I read the reason the picture and sound both drop out even though it is the lamp has something to do with the television protecting other circuits.

I had this problem and ordered a new replacement XL2200 lamp from Sony and that fixed it. By the way, the lamp installs from the front so there's no need to pull your TV out from the wall. Look at you manual, it is accurate in this respect. My lamp only lasted about 15 months. It costs $200 plus about $16 to ship. ou can order direct from Sony on line service.

Sony 60' projection model # kdfe60a20, the picture keeps going out and then back on.


Try taking off the back pannel and spray compressed air on the fand and lamp. There is probably too much dust in the fan and on the lamp, triggering a sensor to go off and you loose your picture. If the sound goes off too, then it my be something more techmical. My tv had the same problem. This is how I fixed it. You can also try replacing the bulb. They are at least half price on the internet than they are if you buy them at a local retailer.

TV Picture Goes Black


I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
