    Hi All,

    Searched this forum but couldn't find any information on the subject.

    I have a Sony KV-28FQ86, and generally speaking, it's perfect.

    But there seems to be one flaw in it though. The television shuts off and then comes on again by itself at random intervals.

    Anyone with the same problem ?

    I had a philips that did something similar. I found out it was due to the brightness level being too high, so when a white scene was displayed it shut down, then came back on again.

    I know it's probably unrelated, but you could try lowering the brightness a couple of notches and see if the behaviour disappears.

    Hi Ocauberg,
    There is a known fault with earlier versions of this set in that they shut down randomly and the service menu is sometimes corrupted.
    I had 2 sets with this problem and both were sent back to Sony.
    Know have the KV32DX200 which im really happy with.
    Some people with this set had the software version upgraded and that seemed to cure the problem.
    Here is a link to the earlier posts.

    thanx, couldn't find a post in the forum about this problem.

    strange thing is, is bought the tv in januari... so it should have a very recent software version.
