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 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....
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.

My Sony Wega KDF-55XS955 55" was going on for 1-2 minutes then going black with no sound and after a few minutes would come back on. After reading all the posts and talking with a repair guy I replaced the bulb and that fixed the problem.
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.

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.
