My 55" Sony Wega TV, KDF-E55A20, keeps shutting itself off and turning back on automatically. The green power light stays lit the entire time, and never flashes. No red flashes either. When we're watching TV, it will suddenly shut off, has no pictures for 20-25 seconds (green power light stays lit the entire time, no flashing), then comes back on automatically, followed by audio a couple seconds later. This happens sometimes every 5 minutes, other times, I can go days without it happening. We've cleaned it thoroughly, taken the back off, cleaned it again, tightened everything...Please help...any suggestions?

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
