Question about Mitsubishi WS-55511 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Powers off intermitantly

The TV will work normal for hours and then will power off. Sometimes an immediate power back on will continue to operate for several more hours and sometimes it will immediately shutoff again. The power probelm started about a week after another intermitant problem that has went away. That was the top ~4-6 inches of the screen would become distorted and pull down away from the top of the screen (the rest of the screen would remain nominal). This would happen for 2-20 seconds randomly perhaps every few minutes. The distortion problem is no longer happening, but the TV does power off randomly.

Good Day;

This model is equipped with a self-diagnosis feature to help with diagnosis of shutdown problems. To activate this turn the unit on let it shutdown then press the device and menu buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold them in for 5 seconds after 5 seconds the power LED on the front panel will blink a two digit sequence. This will be one set of blinks a short pause then another set of blinks, this will repeat 5 times. 1 - 2 = no error detected 2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current) 2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies) 2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection) 2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source) 1. SHUTDOWN AT POWER WITH SELF DIAGNOSIS ERROR 2 2. CHECK FOR LEAKY C9A60 470 PF 1000 V PART # 154P400030, PARALLEL TO D9A57 ON THE POWER PCB. 2. SHUTDOWN AT POWER WITH SELF DIAGNOSIS ERROR 2 2. CHECK FOR OPEN FUSES F9A04 AND F9A05 PART # 283P043090 ON THE +24 AND -24 VOLT LINES. IF THE FUSES ARE OPEN THE CONVERGENCE OUTPUT CIRCUIT WOULD BE SUSPECT. OR your TV has "COOLANT" (ethylene glycol) on the circuit boards. This fluid comes from the CRT's (picture tube) this fluid is used to keep the CRT's cool, such the name. This fluid from the CRT's leak when TV is on for long periods of time, the chamber expands and the seals leak.

One can remove this fluid by using "acetone" & small brush. The fluid is hard to see, use bright light, they spots can be smaller then a DIME. Also, the fluid can corrode the parts and traces on the boards. To protect the TV in future place heavy plastic or thick cardboard over affective area, make sure TV has proper air flow around TV. Good Luck, big IRISH.

hi,

The best and the only solution to fix this problem is to call a tech and get it serviced or if it is still under warranty just get it replaced.

Few troubleshooting steps you can try:

1)Do a hard reset by unpluging all the cords for 4hrs and then plug it back.
2)The whacking test is to just bang or smack the set with your hand on the back, side, top, etc., to see if there are loose connections or cold solder joints inside that are acting up. If so, the banging should knock them back to normal and the set should restore. You might have to use some creative banging and some have had to put a book or magazine under one corner to torque the chassis enough to get it to work reliably.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution

one solution to maybe solve the problem of it not staying powered would be to take the panel off the back and use a blow dryer in the lower left hand corner and heat it up. It worked to get our tv turned on.

Hitachi tv problem


It sounds like a capacitor is going or is bad in the powersupply section of the tv. If your lucky it could be a bad solder connection on the power supply board. Let me know if you have any other questions. Also where are u located. I am in Louisville, Kentucky.
