Question about Mitsubishi WS-65807 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Won't power on...

We turned off our TV last night and went to turn it on this AM and the green power light will flash for a few seconds and then automatically power off. It was stated in previous answers to check the PC board (which I have no idea what that is) or to contact a repairman. First, this TV was left by the landlord who didn't want it so I doubt he will want to pay for any repairs and I can't afford to repair it either. Any other troubleshooting I could do on my own to figure out what the problem is or how to fix it myself? Thanks! Jenny

Unplug the TV for a minute then plug it in while observing the power light. If the light flashes three times then the standby power supply is OK.

If the standby power supply is OK, a diagnostic code can be read from the green power light by counting the flashes. Press the power button once (this sets the diagnostic code). Press and hold the INPUT and MENU buttons on the fron panel for 5 seconds then release. The green light flash a two digit code (x flashes, followed by a pause, then y flashes). If it flashes a 2-2 code then a short circuit has been detected in the switched power supply. It would normally flash a 1-2 code for "no problem detected".

If a 2-2 code is read, check for blown pico fuses on the POWER circuit board. If the FA904 or FA905 fuses are blown then most likely at least one of the two convergence driver ICs are bad. It seems like this is the most common failure. I replaced these fuses and ICs in my TV. The parts cost me $50, but it required extensive disassembly, PC board desoldering & resoldering, and reassembly. If you can resolder circuits on a PC board then you can probably fix it yourself, otherwise call a repair person.

You definitely have a bad lamp. Sony rates the lamp life at between 4000 and 8000 hours. There are 3 things that effect the lamp life, listed in order of importance:
1) number of times the lamp is turned on and off. Every time the lamp is first fired, it takes life off the lamp. Customers I see that turn the TV on in the morning, leave it on all day and then turn it off on the evening can get up to 12000 lamp hours
2) ventilation. Be sure you have at least 6 inches of open space all the way around the set and that the vents are clear of dust and debris.
3) power. If the power is interrupted when the set is on, there cannot be a proper cool down cycle. The fans will run after you turn the set off to properly cool it down, if the power is lost this cannot happen. If your power is unreliable, buy a small UPS to let the set finish a cool down cycle

Occasionally a lamp will faill before the average lamp time due to being defective. from your purchase date it sounds like you got about average lamp time. Be sure to purchase AN ORIGINAL SONY LAMP as a replacement, becuase the aftermarket lamps are bad news, Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.

I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.
