Question about Mitsubishi The Big Easy TV

1 Answer

Screen goes dark

My Mitsubitshi VS-50501A projection TV has a light sensor on front panel of TV and when the light in the room goes dark the sensor darkens the picture way to much so I have to keep the lights on to see the picture. Is there anyway of by passing the sensor so the picture is always bright? Thanks, Fred

I thught I answered this one but if you disconnet the sensor it should brighten up the picture If it dosent then its part of the brightness curcuit and must be replace. As I remeber thewre are severall models that you could simply disconnect. Or there should be an auto brightness feature in the main menu picture ajustment to simply disable or shut it off. Good luck

Im trying to find a replacement screen for a Mitsubitshi VS-70707... is there anywhere I can find one or some sort of similar product that will work?


Find an active TV Repair shop. You may find a used screen in their salvage area. If they don't have one, they will know of another TV shop that may. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

I have a Mitsubishi VS-50501A Rear projection TV. When I push the power button the green comes on for a few seconds then goes out. The TV will not power on.


This one may or may not have the self check:

when green light goes out on front of set press menu and input (device) buttons at same time and hold for at least 5 seconds and let go: if it has self check power light should blink a two digit error code and repeat it several times.

If no response it indicates some problem in main power supply (set is in shut down)

I need to know what skills you have; what I have seen mostly in these early sets is bad solder connections that develop on main boards; I can tell you where and what to look for but it involves getting at the boards and being able to solder.

Before you rate this information let me know what you find and remember I am here to help you.

Good Day, jvira; Suspect fluid on the PCB's.To find suspected liquid on the PCB's, remove the front speaker cover and the small board held on by 5-6 screws. Look at the first 3 to 5" on the PCB. Use bright light it's not always easy to see. If fluid is spotted remove the boards from the back of TV. Use small brush, like old tooth brush, and acetone. You can get acetone from hardware stores
Look for rusted wires or parts and replace as necessary.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

Projection TV when turned on picture is dark can view slight images until dinning room light is turned on


Try hooking the TV to a different outlet fed by a different breaker. Does the problem go away? If so, the culprit may be a wiring problem in your house that is causing the TV not to get enough power unless the dining room light is on.If in doubt, consult an electrician to make sure both the dining room light and TV outlet circuits are working properly.

MISTUBISHI VS-50501A - top 3/4 of screen displays ok, rest does not


Check the vertcle yoke pins for solder cracks. Check verticle output circuitry resistors and transistors. And also check for Coolant leaks from the CRTs this happens alot. Check capacitors for any signs of sweeling or heat as well.
