Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

I have a Mitsubishi 1080 HD Medallion 48" projection TV that was purchased about 5 years ago. The green light next to the system reset button is flashing quickly and the set will not turn on. I have tried unplugging and resetting the tv as the dealer and manual suggest, but this does not help. For a while it was turning on and was okay for a week or so. Now it won't turn on at all.

    The blinkiing is continuous.

    What would it actually cost to have an authorized repair service come to the house to replace the 4 caps?

Sir,

On those TVs it is normally a bad DM module board/convergence check out this forum it may help you a little more....

http://www.hdtvoice.com/voice/showthread.php?t=20219

4 bad capacitors in the DM module is not letting your TV set download it's software. They must be replaced to fix it.

Done several of these...you'll need (4) 1000uf caps at 35 Volt rating, and a TV Tech to install them.
Get a Mitsubishi Authorized servicer out to your home.

And you should not need a DM module to fix it....I've only had ONE out of 30 that required the DM module...but that's because the customer waited too long to get it fixed.

thanks
good luck

if you help us with the blink code it wil be very useful for us

    The constant blinking green light means that the TV is not booting up.
    This is a common problem on this set.You need to remove the shield from
    the DM board (standing upright on the left where the DTV RF connector
    is)and inside you will see the four leaky capacitors (1000 MFD 16
    VOLT)replace them,plug the TV in and wait 70 seconds for the blinking
    light to stop,then turn on the TV.The hard part will be removing the
    board from the TV(lots of screws and connectors,takes time)


    You must do some checks first:LED does not stop blinking after plug in.
    Verify the standby supplies, 12-volts at connector KA pin 17, 6-volts
    at KA pin 18 and the 28-volts at KA pin 19, if the supplies are present
    suspect the DM PCB part # 934C067001 LED does not stop blinking after
    plug in. Check C9B01, C9B02, C9B10, and C9B11 (1000 UFD 16) on the DM
    PCB, if they are bad replace them with part # 181P734030 (680 UFD 16
    V). LED stops blinking after 70 seconds of plug in but will not power
    on. This model is equipped with a keyboard lock feature; this can be
    mistaken as a no power condition. To unlock the keyboard press and hold
    the "menu" button on the front panel for 10 seconds . LED stops
    blinking after 70 seconds of plug in but will not power on. Check for
    3.2 volts DC at connector RF pin 4 and 5 on the Signal PCB if low
    suspect problems with the switches/buttons on the Control PCB part #
    935D736001. LED stops blinking after 70 seconds of plug in but will not
    power on. Keyboard is not locked and key inputs at connector RF pin 4
    and 5 check good suspect the E2P PCB part # 934C061001.

    Just click below for more information.;

I HAVE AN AKAI HD TV DVB-T32W. When I started out first time, it autoscans but found no channel. press DTV or ATV, it,says "No channel. need to rescan". But nothing happens, thanks


Main system control memory IC fault. This is a very small IC; have 8 solder terminals, and can be located very near to the main system control-chroma IC. Check and replace it. Be sure to replace it with the same number printed on it; in all respect. Otherwise, it won't go. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Before replacing it, try a reset to this set, and then check.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

WHERE IS THE RESET BUTTON ON MY TV


What is the brand name and model number of the TV. Can't say anything without these information. If the set is not too much older model, there will be no such button marked as "reset". For modern sets, if you have to do a reset, you should enter its service mode. It is somewhat skilled procedure.

The color on my TV is all pink. I have tried a hard reset but it didn't help.


Your TV has lost a GREEN color from a basic color palette (Red-Green-Blue). It is often caused by:
- damaged LCD cable (which connects the display with a signal board inside the TV),
- damaged video signal cable (ex. SCART, HDMI, VGA),
- damaged video processor (on the signal board).
I can't give you a more accurate answer, because I don't know what is your TV mark and model and, in what situations you have the problem.
