Question about Mitsubishi VS-50805 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Mitsubishi VS-50805 Service Mode

Can anyone please help? I just got scammed by a repair man who said he was authorized by Mitsubishi but come to find out is not. The original problem was the unit would not show a picture. The green light next to the power button would come on but the screen was black. The repair man came out and showed me a capacitor had leaked and that he needed to wipe it up and it would cost $479.00 for 45 mins of cleaning. When I said no he got mad and said I owed him a $79 service fee and then put the TV back together. Before he finished putting the front speaker grate on he turned the unit on and the picture came on as normal. I asked if it was working and he said it might temporarily but he had to put it in service mode. Now when I turn on the TV it flashes different colors and then turns itself off after about 5 seconds. My question is how do I unlock whatever type of service mode this guy put the TV on? Thanks!

Sounds like you gotta call that guy back or report him for damaging your set.
