I own this tv for about 13 years and had it repaired about a couple of years ago. It cost me $150.00 now i have no sound or picture and three low beeps and nothing else. I had this repair company refer by Mitsubishi and they want to charge me $400.00 i think that is too much and he told me it was the power supply and something else that had went bad. Can anyone help or refer me to someone that will charge a better price. My e-mail address is (email@example.com)
I have the same exact TV as you and it has the same problem. I took the whole tv apart and checked the obvious things i.e. fuse, loose board, etc. etc. Bottom line - it looks like the flyback transformer needs replacment This is what provides the picture tube with power/voltage, etc. The part itself is ~200.00 and the labor will be about $150.00 - $200.00. Thats what you would pay if its only the transformer. Usually when the transformer goes, it takes other components along with it. I am bringing my set to the recycling center since It's not worth fixing. Went to Costco and bought a 42" LCD tv for less than 900.00. Instead of spending upwards of $300.00-400.00 to fix a 13 yr old standard tv, go for the gusto and upgrade to High Defination TV with the appropriate Cable company box and you'll never regret it!!!!
What a wake up call to watch TV now!!!!!!!!! Good luck to you...

Try a hard restart, which simply means unplugging the power cord of the TV, and replugging it after 4 hours have passed. If this does not bring the picture back, then you should consider buying a new TV. The costs of a repair ( labor and parts) might exceed the cost of a new TV. Your 10 year old TV has served you well, and has exceeded the average life expectancy of 5 years. May it rest in peace in TV heaven.
Anything can be repaired, question is how much it will cost you.
Sounds like a problem in the high tension side of tv, wether it is the transformer or leakage remains to be seen.Also because it is aggravated by damp weather.
This indicates a problem in the power supply either the low voltage switching supply or the High voltage power supply. The sounds you hear is the shutdown circuit activating, I would not suggest that you try to repair this problem because of the dangers involved. I would suggest that you take it to a qualified TV repair shop. This problem should not cost you much, however it is the best choice for the problem you described.
John, bad news, short in picture tube, not cost effective to repair, even if it was the tube is no longer available for that age set, the bright side is it doesn`t owe you anything at 15-16 years old, too bad the "new tv`s" don`t last that long, hope this answers your question, BMW Rider
A few weeks ago my set started flashing to a black screen. Now a couple of weeks later, i have no picture, but the set turns on and i have sound. The standby light is flashing. I purchased the set in 2000 so it is seven years old. This is the first problem. Could it be all three of the bulbs?
Could it be all three of the bulbs?
as you say that sound is ok that means your power supply &high voltage section is ok.
please check chroma ic luminance section or system control section stand by ckt
that sounds like the Hi voltage transformer went bad.. If your a tech simply disconnect the horizontal output transistor and see if thats shorted. If it is then it is for sure the HV transformer. If its not shorted look in the main power supply. Its cost is around 40 bucks or so and the transistor is about 15 to 20 bucks. This entire repair should cost ya around 150 to 175. So if you decide this tv is the one you like then have it fixed. Good Luck
