Question about Mitsubishi VS-5043/44 50" Rear Projection Television

Does not turn on

I've been having problems with my tv for a while now and it just finally gave in. I tried to turn it on and the green power light came on for about 4 seconds and just shut off. There was no picture or sound either. Before this I was having trouble with the color alignment, the convergence I guess. The blue would not allow me to adjust up or down. But before that the picture itself would become distorted, wavy, and colors out of line. So I would stomp on the floor or hit the side of the tv lightly and it would fix itself. Any ideas as to what could be the problem? It is about 10 yrs. old but has been no problem until now. Thanks

You probably had a bad solder connection on one of the convergence modules, it's a common problem with projo tv's. that loose connection finally got bad enough to cause a short in the module, and that's what is sending the power supply into shutdown. have it fixed, and have them replace all of the convergence modules, not just the bad one. if one went out, the other(s) (there are 2, sometimes 3 of them) are the same age, and likely will also fail soon. ...... gee i was looking for a picture of one of those modules, but can't find one. well, anyway the modules are on large pieces of finned aluminum (heat sinks), and are about 3-4 inches wide, 2 inches tall, 1/2 inch thick, are usually black plastic, and have about 20 wire leads coming out of the bottom going down to the circuit board.

I can't get my tv to turn on... nothing but blinking red light


Dont know if this will work for you or not, but my brother gave me his because of the same problem. It would power up and a green light would come on, then after 10 -15 seconds it would change to a red blinking light. I plugged a usb cable into the service port on the side and left the other end unplugged. Then plugged the tv back into the power. i took a small screwdriver and ran across the contacts in the end of the usb cable until both the red light and the green lights came on. I did this several times listening fot the clicking noises in the TV. after doing this for approx 20 seconds, i pressed the power button and the TV worked fine. 5 days now and no problems. Only thing I can think is I somehow reset the software and now it is working fine. Hope some of you can figure this out and give it a try. if the TV is just sitting, you have nothing to lose

Mitsubishi WS73713 - Now working - Timer light flashing.


My Mitsubishi WS-73713 had the same blinking green timer light problem and would not turn on. I tried the reset button and unplugging power to no avail. I found that by simultaneously holding down the remote control "power" button and "volume" button for about 30 seconds the blinking light would go out and a solid green light would come on. Even though the solid green light came on the unit would still not power up. After doing this several times however the unit did finally power up in a normal mode and appears to be working again. It's worth trying before calling in for an expensive repair. PS - From here on out I'm sticking with SONY or Toshiba sets which have given be great service.
