20 Most Recent Sony KDS-R60XBR1 60" Projection HDTV Questions & Answers


The lamp for this model number is XL-5100
Before ordering the lamp, I would inspect the inside of the TV, be certain that the three fans are clean and free from dust. Often if a fan does not start the first time it may start on a restart. Due to the nature of televisions operating, dust seems drawn to these TV's. Cleaning the fans might correct your issue.

I have the 50" SXRD TV and have expereienced many of the same problems as other owners. Sony replaced the optical block at no charge after the screen yellowing effect took place. Recently, I have the TV shut down with the flashing red light blinking in sequences of 4. After unplugging the TV for a few minutes, replugging it, and turning it back on, it worked again. However, this was not a pemanent solution as the problem returned. After reading several posts here, I turned the TV to look into the fans and voila, the one on the left was not spinning.

I took the back off of the TV (9 screws) and took apart the fan housing to vacuum everything. In addition, I vacummed everything else I could see. After putting it back together, the problem was solved. Save yourself a repair call. Get out a phillips screwdriver and a vacuum cleaner. Thanks to the posters on this site!!

Sorry to hear this, but your optical block has failed. Sony replaced a ton of these under warranty and then extended the warranty on these SXRD sets so they could replace many more. They even replaced the sets with LCD sets after a class action law suite. This was a "black eye" for Sony TVs and they stopped making the SXRD sets. Your set is vintage 2006 and there is no longer a warranty. You could replace the optical block with a rebuilt one, but the cost would be about the same as getting a new 60" LCD. I would suggest you do the latter.

There is nothing in the TV that should cause this. It sounds like a cable box/DVR problem.

Those are retrace lines from too bright a picture. If you can't get them to go away with the brightness control then a repair is necessary

Thats caused by a shorted audio circuit. Replacing the K board will solve that issue. You can get the replacement K board from the following link scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see the K board listed. They also have installation assistance if you need it.

Samsung LN46A580P6FX
On the main board, IC104 (Part #SPX1587AT) is a 3.3VDC to 1.8VDC regulator. When this IC fails, the 1.8VDC drops substantially when the TV is turned on. After five minutes or so, the unit operates fine. This IC can be purchased from digikey for about $1.80.
Another fix is to attach a 1000uF 10 volts capacitor from ground to the DC source of this IC. I used a 1000uF 50V (overkill) for proof of concept. See attached pictures.

The tv is not the problem it's the elgato, during the setup it changed settings on the PS3. The problem can be fixed by changing display settings on the elgato software.
