Question about Mitsubishi VS-5043 50" Rear Projection Television
When the pwr on button is pressed the green indicator lights up for about 5 seconds then shuts off...HELP ...need to know if it's worth fixing it ..(10yrs old) Thanks....
The TV shuts down because it goes is in protect mode.
The TV does not turn on because there is an internal problem, like a short, a bad voltage, or more commonly a faulty component (IC , capacitor etc.).
The tv is in protect mode, try first unplugging power cord for one hour, and see if this solve the problem.
When this happen, the main Chip inside your TV detects that there is a fault, and send the TV in protect mode, activating a safety switch that prevents TV from turning on. The switch keeps turning off the tv, and that is the clicking noise that you can hear.
Unless you have experience as a TV repair, try first keeping TV unplugged for one hour or more. This will reset TV circuts draining power completely, and sometimes can wake up the TV from protect mode.
If it does not work, that means that there is a defective component inside the TV. In this case I suggest calling the phone number listed on the user manual to get support from manufacturer.

Hey Poncho I have heard of many problems regarding Mitsubishi Rear Projection Television and truth be told you should look into buying a new television. A ten year old television has run its and its not worth fixing. I would invest in a new HDTV.
