20 Most Recent Mitsubishi WS-65809 65" Rear Projection Television - Page 3 Questions & Answers

This tv isn't known for sound problems. First thing to do is to go to the cable box and push the volume up button on the box if there is one. Next thing to do is to try another device that has a hdmi output like a dvd or game system in place of the cable box. My guess is that this muffled sound is somehow caused by the cable converter box. You can try to reboot the box by unplugging the power for 30 seconds, then plugging it back in. If all else fails, you can call the cable or satellite service and have them change the converter box. Good luck, Russmann.

There are four (4) caps on the 'DM' board that need to replaced. Parts: 680ufd 16 volts, orig are rated at 1,000 ufd.

use the RGB (RedGreenBlue) video connections on the back of the tv instead of the single yellow video, or coax cable connection

fault of new owner not testing it before purchase.

Find the option code menu for your set and do the hard reset to see if it restores the missing input.

If you unplugged the set you will get the 1,2 no error found, the 2,2 is short protection, I hope you had that before the chips were replaced, it is one or both of the pico fuses bad that protect those chips.

see photo of board, locations are 9FAo4 and o5 on the middle board where the chips are but further back.
12_15_2012_1_52_39_pm.jpg they are both five amp pico fuses.

look first in the captions area for TEXT---if its on there will be a blank box in the middle of the screen but usually it will be black--look to see if TEXT is engaged.

Mitsubishi... | Answered on Dec 06, 2012

You have two of these or one set with different problems, If you got this error the set will of course not come on and stay on.

This like some error codes is general in nature---set produces over 20,000 volts to fire the three picture tubes, hence high voltage.

If the High voltage goes above a certain point the latch or shutdown circuit detects this and shuts the set down to prevent X-Ray radiation which happens if the picture tubes receive excessive High voltage--straightforward and needed, locating the part is almost certainly a shop repair.

I would on this model suggest removing power from the set which clears the errors detected and stored and then power up and try to turn set on again---when it fails check for the error code with the self check again

How did you get at the chips? Which lights are you referring to?

Mitsubishi... | Answered on Dec 04, 2012

First to be sure, unplug the set from power and then plug back--this clears the error buffer. Repeat the self check:

PRESS AND HOLD "device"(input) and "menu" buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release both together.

Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem

******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protect the Convergence IC or IC's is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergence IC and shut down.


As you can see 2,4 is vertical problem----might want to remove speaker grill, inspection plate behind it and look up front--vertical is on middle board at right front as seen from front of set.

Look for ANY tiny drops of clear liquid which damages parts and is toxic-----glycol is what I would look for first.

The set has a self check feature: when green light (power) goes out on the front of the set press and hold both the menu and input buttons at same time for at least five seconds and release both.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like: 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it several times.

If the set was unplugged you will have to try to turn it on and then do the check.

2,2 is short protection and usually means (98%) convergence problem.

1,2 is no error detected etc.

Let me know what you find and I will help.

Do you have anything to test it in 1080i? Does it do it on all connections or just one? I had a similar problem with my TV that turned out to be a bad input board. Mine would only display 1080i through the Component connections. All others would show pink and green wavy lines. It cost me around 500 to fix it. Unplug the TV. Remove the back cover for the TV. Using a NON-metal object, or gloves, wiggle the input board (that has all the video connections on it) slowly back and forth and see if the problem comes and goes. You will have to have someone watching for you. If something is loose on that board, the problem should show itself. Narrowing down the problem will probably save you money on repair bills.

Mitsubishi... | Answered on Oct 11, 2012

do self check when it (power light) goes off:

press and hold both menu and input buttons on front of set for at least five seconds and let both go.

power light will blink a two digit error code like, 1 blink, 2 blink and pause and repeat it several times.

The error code will narrow down where the problem is and most common one is 2,2

let me know what code you find.

Mitsubishi... | Answered on Oct 08, 2012

You need to have a good look inside especially at the fold over plugs on the middle board==not unusual for the metal bands across the top to lift up just slightly===especially if middle board was removed for convergence repair.

Other than that it could be a bad solder connection etc--extreme care to localize what area should be taken if set on etc.

Mitsubishi... | Answered on Sep 02, 2012

if you guys don't have experience or the right tools to fix board you will mess up your board.
so go to ebay and search for repair service listing #230735864835 and sen your board to this guy for convergence repair.
let a professional do the job for you and for cheap,why buying repair kits when you can buy the repair service?

since its so old you really only chance is to replace the bulb in the machine . also you may have to replace each color board here is a link to the bulbs and the three colored boards http://www.google.com/search?q=Mitsubishi+WS-65809+bulb&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a#sclient=psy&hl=en&safe=off&client=firefox-a&hs=2uY&rls=org.mozilla:en-US%3Aofficial&biw=1280&bih=647&tbs=shop:1&q=Mitsubishi+WS-65809&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=d57722a22572de1d

Fuses in the ws65809 are identified by a location number printed top and bottom on the board---need a link for the full service manual for this TV?

What exactly is problem and such.

Mitsubishi... | Answered on Apr 30, 2012

it is glued and screwed together.

Mitsubishi... | Answered on Apr 30, 2012

if model indicated do the self check it has:

On front of set when green light for power goes out press and hold both the menu and input (source) buttons at the same time for at least 5 seconds and release both buttons.

Power light will then blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks a pause and repeat it for a total of 5 times.

If set has been unplugged you must plug it back and try to get set to turn on--unplugging clears the errors.

Let me know what error you find and I will tell you what it means.
