Question about Mitsubishi VS-50605 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Mitusbishi big screen vs-60707, circa 2001

This thing has a mind of it own. If you shut it off, it take sometimes 8 hours then maybe 24 hours to turn it back on. Once its on we leave it on. Something is locking this TV out like it's on a timer. Some times we leave on continously if we know we are going to have an event. The SLEEP TIMER is disabled and the day and time are set correctly. It's very frustrating! Best regards, Dan...

I have never worked on a Mitsubishi with this problem but I have seen it in other sets. Most notably Zenith sets from about the same time. The Zenith sets have an electrolytic capacitor which fails (changes value) and causes the power supply to switch at a lower frequency. If the frequency is low enough the set will never turn on but if it is not less than half the operating frequency the set may turn on sometimes and run forever or not. It sounds like your Mitsu has a similar problem. This would not be an expensive fix but probably is beyond your expertise.

Try to turn on shuts down right a way ws_65809 7yrs old

You may just need to replace a few components in your tv or there mmight be something loose. First part of the TV that usually shows up with a problem is the power supply. Check the power supply for loose soldering or leaking capacitor. If there are none on those circuit make your way up to the main board and have it checked.

I have a Mitsubishi VS-60707 that won't turn on. Just prior to this it would turn on with normal audio but the video was very, very dark.

Try this nubs.

Take the speaker panel off, and then the other black panel directly underneath exposing the guts, there should be some multi colored wires exposed that go to your power on and volume up and down, whatever... follow the wires up underneath, they go in the hole the panel was covering up.. (dont try to take the screen off just plain dumb..) there should be 2 white plugs connecting the to sets of multi colored wires just inside that go to somewhere in the back of the tv... Unplug them both big one first then push power on nothing should happen yet.. then unplug the second one wait about a minute or whatever plug them both back in and push power. it should come to life... remember not to touch random **** or you will get shocked to ****. MY vs. 60707 works fine now... (you might have to do this a couple times before the fuckin' passive aggressive ****** will work:)
