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

I can only c my tv if the room is dark is it jus a bulb


Yes, it's a bulb, but not "just a bulb". It's a special high-output bulb, but projection TVs aren't very bright, and are designed to be used in a darkened room.

Tv screen darkens at night


The set likely has a light sensor on the front of it to change brightness with light changes in the room, if not in the menu to switch on or off contact LG to see with the model number what can be done.

I have seen some where the sensor had to be disconnected inside to correct this issue. Sets as far back as 50 years ago had this issue.

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.

Dark over night


Does the TV have a light sensor? If so, turn it off.
The light sensor limits the backlights intensity at night or when it's dark in your room in order for better vieweing convenience.

If you are in a dark environment, it really pains your eyes when the view is too bright. Same works the other way around. If it's day, and light in your room. The light sensor will dimm the backlight for it isn't needed.

Let me know if this solved your question.
