Re: mitsubishi vs-6043 turns itself off.

On this set it could be 1 of 3 common problems. first it could be the regulator ic in the sets power supply. It could also have a shorted horzontal output transistor because of cold solder connections on the horizontal drive curcuit. and finally could be cold solder connections on the colis and or the high wattage resisters in the sweep power supply and horizontal output section. You should first put the set if you can on a variac transformer and lower the ac voltage to 85 to 90 volts ac and see if set comes on. If it dosent static check the voltages on the pwer supply when powered up if they are there then check the horizontal driver and output problems.. If you understand what im saying and have the proper tools good luck to ya but if you dont it would be best to take or have a pro come and check it for you.

Not sure on that one. My local repair guru tells me the 6043's are constantly having problems. I've got one that I'm looking for board parts for, so if you end up not wanting to fix yours, I'd love to get your board set for some parts.

Mitsubishi VS-5071 rear projection turns on, has audio but no video

That is a VZ3 chassis, similar to Mitsubishi models Ts-4545, Ts-5045, Ts-5545, Vs-4543, Vs-4544, Vs-5043, Vs-5044, Vs-5047, Vs-6043, Vs-6047 and has common failures in the vertical circuit, specifically vert Ic401 which is a La7845 which is usually caused by defective C402 100uf 50v and/or open 1.2 ohm 2 watt R510 next to FBT.
If not that check C268 off Q215 on signal board 22mf/50v and Ic200 on signal module Cxa2025s. However the vertical failure is more likely.

6043 6061 parts interchange

Well, you can use most of the parts, except that the shape of the boards are different, so you cant exchange the entire board as such.

No picture or sound

From the symptoms you describe, it seems the high voltage flyback autotransformer has failed along with the horizontal amplifier (they are slaved to each other). The sound comes from the flyback unit.

Well, the only way to solve this is to get a technician take a look at the set, I'm afraid. Repairs could cost upto $100 or more, depending upon the number of components that need to be replaced,

Hope that helps!

These are fairly simple, remove the speaker cover and then remove the screws at the bottom of the screen, then the whole thing lifts up and off, be sure to unplug the front panel controls, this plug can usaly be found just behind the cover behind the speaker grill
