Question about Mitsubishi WS-55513 55" Rear Projection HDTV

2 Answers

TV won't turn on!

My set is only 15 mos old. It was working one evening, and the next morning it would not turn on. I had a authorized Mitsubishi repair outfit come out and take the back off and make a few buzzing sounds. They said it will cost $900 to fix it. It cost $1600! The little green light will blink for about a minute when either pluged in or the pin is pushed. Any idea? Thanks, garymc

Cant get the power to turn on,worked fine last night, it got unplugged, this morning plugged in, won't turn on and the power button just flashse

Flashing is either an error code or the set trying to boot up--some of the Mitsubishi sets if power removed will blink for a minute and then stop--then the set can be turned on.

a model number?

Just replaced the lamp after 2 years. TV worked

Make sure that the lamp cage is seating well .. then make sure the door is closed properly. there is a door switch and if the door dont close right the switch may be telling the set the lamp is out.

Mitsubishi VS-50609 won't turn on

What a great tv this is Mitsubishi did a fine job making this one, but......only an authorized mitsubishi servicer should repair it. This set records diagnostic led codes that the technician receives to help determine where the problem might be, not the problem, but in which circuit it might be. The one thing to try is, unplug the tv , let it set for a minute, plug it back in , turn it on and hope it reset the micro. Next , call for mits. service.

Pioneer SDT50W1 rear projection TV clicks off when switched on.

Hey dudes...even i hav had the same problem that too with the same model specified here..Its a problem actually concerned with the power circuit boards of the tv. Its best to get it checked by an authorized technician. For me I had to replace a transistor on one of the boards. But after that my tv came up with a new problem....the colours appear like rainbows! Could nyone xplain y dis is happening?

Mitsubishi wd-65831 one night worked fine next day nothin..

If you hear a whining noise, the odds are it is the color wheel, the bearings are bad in it and will need to be replaced as a whole unit, kinda pricey, my suggestion, sale the bulb and all boards in it and which should fetch about 400+ and invest in a new TV, a color wheel is pricey unless you can find a deal

This problem of the blinking green lt started a few weeke ago, I could overcome the problem by turning tv off and turn back on later. This time--nothing works--dead tv. Can this problem be repaired?

FIRST....did the TECH replace the CAPS in the DM module??
If he didn't....he's assuming the WORST case scenario and ESTIMATING for that....

In your situation, CALL a Mitsubishi Authorized Service center (God I hope this other guy wasn't one !)

I do Mitsubishi service....and it looks like the Mitsubishi Service website is presently undergoing maintenance this morning....

Otherwise, I would have priced out a NEW DM module and seen if that's what he was estimating.....

I have a 35-inch Mitsubishi TV Model CK-35MX2. It is 15 years old but has never had a problem. Recently, when I first turn it on in the morning, the picture has a vertical roll until it warms up and after...

I have a Mitsubishi  "CS-3515R.  Serial number 528801. When I turn it on by remote or on the set itself, I can hear the power come on.  BUT there is no picture and no sound.  What do I do?

Flashing green light

I had the same problem with a WS 55813,2004 model.Paid 130.00 for local Mitsubishi authorized dealer that told me I needed a new DM module at an additional 505.00. Called Sears and they repaired the board for 146.00 by replacing four capasitors on the board. The tech said there is an exolaination on the web that explaines how to do this. He said this is a very common problem and carries 8 caps with him.He even had to do this to his own tv. The caps are worth 8.00 total.

Mitsubishi VS-5041 (TV turns on but no pic or sound)

Your problem is one and or 2 differant problems. The power regulator could have went bad because of the convergence IC have shorted. Seen this a thousand(easy that!)Times. All parts in this set are soldered in and are not user serviceable. look in your owners manual or call 800-332-2119 to get an authorized servicer to come and look at your problem . I wish i could tell you what to replace but theres the Extreme Hi voltage inside these sets even when they are not plugged in .. Good Luck
