"Stopped working" is a little vague. Are there any flashing LED's? Any start up noises? If the TV seems dead in the water, try a power drain:

1. Unplug the product's power cable so that the device is not grounded to the house. Do not simply turn off the power-bar if one is in use.
2. Press and hold in the products power button for 1 minute to release the retained electricity from the capacitors and circuit board.
3. Plug the product back into the wall outlet rather than a power-bar to rule it out of contributing to the problem and turn the device back on. If this doesn't work and the TV appears to be dead, it may only be the power supply that is now defective and service would be required.

Rear projection screen tv flashes power button but doesn't turn on

These blinks (flashes) are fault indication. By the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. Count the blinks occur at one time switch ON, carefully. Do it once again, and make sure about the number of blinks. If the flashes are continious, non-stop, the main system control IC should be suspected. If you wish to get more details, check the site linked here. It has blinking codes detail to many brand TVs. Pull up older posts. Check the site in 'Mosaic' view. It will make search easy.

Mitsubishi v5 50501a projection tv flickering

Its a older set so most likely bad or poor solder connections may have developed on the circuit boards, it comes with age and is rather common and not too hard to fix.

I cannot see the entire picture on my screen. The sides of the picture makes the show seem as though it goes off scrren. Is it my picture tube? If so, how much do they cost?

Is this with everything you view? Make sure you haven't changed the "aspect ratio". Look at the main menu for something like "format" or aspect ratio. Generally in an older TV like that one you should have an auto or native setting.

Hello. I dont know if i can help but let me see if i can offer my advice. The GE version of this set is the same as the rca version of the itc222. I have worked on probably hundreds of these sets in the shop. and of the ge versions 90 percent of the faliures that i have encountered are due to what is known as faulty flyback transformers. most of them time arching and smelling like something is burning. Also this ussally shorts what is known as the horizontal output transistor. If this is all that is wrong generally it can be repaired for around 100 to 200 depending on the shop that you choose. The other possibilities might include bad capacitor componrents. or faulty solder point connections. witch are things that would also need to be checked.

When i turn on my mitsubishi ws-55857 it turns off after a few seconds. should i call a repair guy???? i am a handyman??/ what should i do


this has two general failures that cause this type of problem... The first and easiest is that when the bulb gets older the tv's start turning off by themselves. Pop in a new bulb and the problem goes away. The second is a power supply issue, and those are generally available on ebay or shopjimmy. If you like the tv, I would find a new bulb ...

Best of luck

Working on my HD52W67....Question!

Hi, define what your working on ? In general if the AC cords been removed for half an hour the only "stored voltages" will be in the larger electrolytic capacitors which can bite you pretty good but only if you get one hand on the positive pin and one hand on ground, using common sense is your best approach, use one hand to probe around inside the set and discharge large value caps with a high wattage resistor before removing them, video-tek
