This is caused by a inherent defect in the optical block of the TV. This was a common failure and the only way to fix it is to replace the whole optical block which is very expensive( over $1000) and time consuming (need to take apart the whole TV). Sony is aware of this issue but have yet to extend the warranty for this TV. There is a class action pending against Sony because of this failure. You can add your name to the class action lawsuit here: http://www.sonysxrdtvclassaction.com/main/home.sfx

is the led blinking anything? When was the last time you replaced the lamp? A bad lamp can cause this kind of problem.

If green light in front of TV blinks while picture goes off and comes back then its symptom of weak lamp that need to be replaced.
And if green light does not blink in above process then let me know.

You may want to replace the Lamp and see if that fixes the problem.

The lamp is the most likely problem, check that first. There is an lap door you open by taking out one screw and then inspect the lamp for a cloud near the stem of the bulb. If it is cloudy, most likely you lamp is going out. If the lamp is fine, the ballast is going to be the problem that is failing to sustain arch for the lamp.

There are two thumb screws at lower corners of TV, lose them and take off lower front panel of TV, there you will see lamp cover, unscrew and remove it, lamp is in front of you.
Lamp replacement procedure is written in user manual, click Sony Support to download user manual copy of KDF-E60A20 if required.

It was as simple as replacing the lamp. It took just minutes and the TV works like new. I had to adjust he picture for the increased brightness level.

Sony KDF-E60A20... | Answered on Oct 28, 2009

Yes, I can point you towards the voltage control adjustment. You've mentioned that you have basically taken this TV apart, so I will start from the identifying the unit you want to adjust and skip how to expose the guts of your TV. We can cover that too later if you'd like.

These photos are of a Sony KP-51HW40, but the author was pretty convinced the voltage control adjustment module will be identical or very similar in the KF-60XBR800.

This is a picture of the front of the unit, behind the speakers.


The little black box towards the front of the unit is where you will concentrate your time, as it is the control for the voltage & convergence adjustment. Here is a close up:


When focused in on the controls, you want to concentrate on the bottom row for the voltage / ray gun projection adjustment. The colors are labeled below and from left to right are blue, green, and red. Choose the one that needs to be adjusted and turn ever so slightly with your Philips screwdriver to remove the lines. In the authors case, the red just needed to be turned 1/8 of a rotation to be back in adjustment. Do not turn to quickly or abruptly or you could possibly damage your TV by varying the voltage too quickly.

That's it.
I hope that helps.

Most likely it is the lamp. Open the lamp door and check the lamp visually. If it is shattered or cracks. Also if there is a cloud near the stem of the lamp, the lamp has reached the end of it's serviceable life. Replace the lamp to fix it. If you need further instruction replacing the lamp, there are step by step directions available in your owner's manual with pictures. If you lost the manual, download it in PDF format from Sony's website for free.

Hi there,

A Three blinks codes = B+ over voltage protection (OVP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 3 blink fault. This is also a problem in the power supply circuit, check T603 and R672.

Hope this helps
