Question about Sony KDS-60A2000 60" HDTV

2 Answers

Sony KDS-60A2000 - no sound.

Our KDS-60A2000 was on and operating normally, then heard popping noise - then screen went black and no sound. Checked lamp and it has blown, but cannot get any sound when I power the TV on again. The green power light flashes continually for several moments after powering on, then it stops flashing and red Lamp light begins flashing - but still no sound. I know I need to order a new lamp, but how should I address the no sound issue? Thanks

    Thank you for your quick trouble-shooting response. I'll order a bulb and if this doesn't solve the sound issue, should I replace the Main Unit (Sony item # 1-870-331-12)?

If you are lucky, a new lamp will restore the sound as well otherwise you may require a new ballast unit as when the lamps explode, the supply board sometimes destroys itself.

Lamp inside TV is broken and requires replacement. Pop sound was its breaking sound.
Lamp replacement procedure is written in user manual, pretty easy.
Please buy Sony original lamp for TV safety and avoid aftermarket/ cheap lamp.
Let me know if you need to download user manual copy.

SOURCE: Suddenly turned off without warning Sony KDS-50A2000

Symptom shows tv needs lamp replacement as existing lamp is reaching to end of its working life and causing that problem.
If you have not replaced lamp in last 2-3 years, replace it to fix the tv issue. I can explain why tv shuts down itself and turns back on.

I do not agree with info provided about bulged capacitors in power supply so please do not take off back of tv unnecessarily.

Lamp replacement procedure would be written in user manual and let me know if you need to download manual copy.

SOURCE: sony kds-60a2000 power light flashes 5 times, no picture

5 flashes - Lamp Driver - (lamp driver faulty)

This is the error code that usually means the ballast (it is the power supply for the lamp) is bad.

My sony is turning on and off when I turn it on. The picture and sound appear and disappear. What is wrong and do you have the part..


The most common cause of picture disappearing and returning in a Sony LCD Rear Projection TV is a faulty bulb. Replacing the bulb is the first step in troubleshooting this type of problem in KDS-60A2000 and all other Sony Rear Projection LCD TVs.

I have a Mitsubishi 65inch tv, Model WD-60735. I heard a loud pop noise, like if something burst inside. Then the screen went black but I can still hear sound. Shortly after the sound went out. I can hear...

Check your lamp. This is a common problem in projections. Sometimes there is a lamp door and two screws holding it in. you can physically see if it is bad. itll be shattered or have rings aorund it. anything that doesnt look right. If your lamp is fine then you may have blown a fuse or diode or ic chip..theres really a lot to go wrong. I would then take it to a repair shop.

Please take the time to rate. Thanks:]

My power light is flashing red three times on and off. sony kds-60a2000 is the model, what do i need to do?

The 3 blink code indicates that the lamp door is not secure. If you havent removed the door then its probably the switch for lamp door sensor.

I would remove the lamp door and then reinstall it. Do this with the set unplugged then plug it back in and check operation.. Basically sometimes the lamp door switches become dirty and by removing and reinstalling the door it usually corrects the problem..

If this doesnt work then you will need to either have the set checked out by a tv technician or you can try replacing the switch yourself. But as I said normally just removing and reinstalling corrects the problem.. Good Luck!
