Set won't come on

When I hit the power button the set does not come on but the red indicator light blinks for a few seconds then goes out. I have looked the set over for a rest button but it does not appear to have one. What is the problem? I look forward to your speedy reply.

My toshiba TP48E60 model projection tv won' turn on, power light just blinks


Blinking of power LED are fault indications. Count the number of blinks occur at one time switch on. For this number, you can get an idea about the faulty section circuit inside it. It will make troubleshooting much narrower. If you wish to get more details about the blinking codes, check this link. Pull up older posts there.

Mitsubishi ws55813 picture turning off


The model indicated has a self check feature.

If turned on and green power light comes on and a few seconds later goes out:

On front of set press and hold both the menu and input(device) buttons at the same time for at least 5 seconds and release both.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it for a total of 5 times.

Let me know what error code you find.

If you unplugged the set--you will have to plug it back and attempt to turn it on--unplugging set clears the error buffer.

Mitsubishi big screen HD 1080 series model WS-55809. it switched off one day. and when i turn it back on it switches right back off. red light in front. what part do i need to fix it/


That model does not have a red light---Green.

If set powers up for a few seconds (green power light) and goes out do the self check the model indicated has:

On front of set (not with remote) press and hold both the input and menu buttons for at least 5 seconds and release both.

Green power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks a pause and repeat it several times.

Let me know what error code you find (if you have unplugged the set that will clear all errors and you have to plug it in and try to turn set on again---when it fails do the self check)

My 8yr. old ws-48511 TV boots up (green light blinks shortly then goes out) after being pluged in, but when you turn it on, the green light comes on then goes off. (will not power on).What is the problem?


When the set powers off after pressing power try pressing the menu and input buttons on the set both in together and hold for 6 seconds to see if the power indicator will blink a two digit blink code which repeats a few times indicating a specific error. Let me know the blink code if any.

When I power on the tv, the light goes to green and then a few seconds later goes to a red flashing light


When a set is powered up, there are internal checks that are performed. The initial green light indicates that power has been applied. The flashing red light indicates that a problem was found that is preventing the set from functioning properly and it has shutdown to prevent further damaeg. If you can supply the model number, I may be able to provide additional details. Also, check to see if the flashing red light has a pattern. Quite often the pattern will indicate what problem was detected.

Thanks,
Dan
