Tip & How-To about Televison & Video
If you have a Mitsubishi rear projection where the model number begins with WS or in some cases VS and the set turns on for a moment (green light comes on and goes off) Do the self check most models made from 1999 through about 2005 have:
When the power light comes on and then goes out, on the front of the set press both the MENU and INPUT buttons at the same time and hold them both in for at least 5 seconds and then release both buttons.
The power light will blink a 2 digit error code and repeat it at least 5 times.
This does not apply to sets with a WD model number, they have different codes.
The most common error will be 2 blinks, 2 blinks- a pause and then it will repeat it for a total of at least 5 times.
To get it to repeat this--you have to unplug the set, try to turn it on again and repeat the process.
The error codes are to try to narrow down where the problem is.
If you get one, you can post a question in the Free section here attention:
SD TECH AND I WILL TELL YOU WHAT IT MEANS AND MAY BE ABLE DEPENDING ON THE ERROR TO TELL YOU HOW TO FIX IT.
Mitsubishi was one of the first to have this feature so techs could with ease know where to look for whatever was wrong--a time saver and several other companies followed suit.
Again: Post either a free question or a Premium question here Attention: SD TECH and I or some other expert will be happy to assist you.
