Question about Projection Televisions

Open Question

I have an Onkyo HT-R550 receiver, and last night i cranked it up loud.... Real loud. It went into protection mode, which with most receivers is as simple as turning off, then on with lower volume. Not the case with this one. It comes on, but once speakers "A" are activated, it turns off again.

SOURCE: HL-P5063W vibrating and won't turn on

Same problem: No onset, symptom or anything just all of a sudden, blank screen, and a loud humming/vibrating sound. Believe it or not I had the protection plan from Circuit City and called them up. Suprisingly they were easy to deal with, set up an appointment and the guy showed up on time! He knew right off the bat that it was the color wheel and it took him 20 minutes to replace it. The wheel itself actually shattered! He explained that the bearings can go bad and the wheel gets loose. Subsequently it wobbled, hitting the housing and shattered (explains the sudden blackout.)

I read somwhere else in this forum that it took someone an hour and a half to replace it. I'm pretty handy but when I opened the back of the TV, my wife gave me "the look" so I called.

For those who care: The guy was courteous, answered all my quests. and even vaccuumed ou the back of the TV. I don't advocate the Protection Plan but I was glad I had it. Cost me $499 in 2004 expiring this November. He explained that it would have cost me out of pocket $218 for them to come plus parts which in this case was another $130. So I guess I lose in the end but if you told me I had to dump $350 into the TV now, I seriously would have considered buying something new (That's just me).

SOURCE: Mitsubishi HDMI connection trouble

I have the same issue with my 73". Rather then going over all of my connections and equipment I'll just say htat I feel your frustration. I have been on the phone with Mitsubishi directly and it appears as though they have a free software upgrade that should address this problem. If you call 1-800-332-2119 and press 4 in the menu you will get someone to help you. Be patient. They will make you go through all of the fixes that you have already tried. They will mail you a flash drive that goes right into the front USB port of your TV. I hope this is of help. Good luck.

SOURCE: My Sharp 56DR650 LED Blinking

Check the number of time it blinks. that is the error code and compare it with the problem listed in the owners manual. see www.fixurtvs.com. The code 32 means the color wheeel is getting stuck. You can try to clean it and put it back or look for a replacement. Repairs should cost you 350 to 450 at shop and 150-250 at home subject to the availability of parts. Cleaning it just a stop gap measure and not a lasting solution. dont worry if the wheel opens up into two with black dust inside. Just clean it put a drop of light machine oil like sewing machine and put it back. there will be hum but the wheel works for months and maybe a year. it varies from tv to tv and quality of your workmanship.

Hi.
The TV is in protect mode because there is an internal fault.
The TV must be tested and repaired at component level.
Call Mitsubishi at the number listed on the user manual.

In your case that looks like a faulty power board, a faulty inverter or an overheating problem on LCD controller board. All this three faults will cause same symptoms as yours.

When TV does not start, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that means that the TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.


If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Have you gone through your onkyo receivers setup manual. You will most likely need to adjust the settings on your Onkyo receiver. I also have an onkyo reciever and I have to assign the inputs to the video source. Being that you got sound out of the front speakes. I am assuming when you were playing out of the dvd player your reciever was only on stereo sound. Once I get feedback I can assist you further

No power to tv


Things to check first:
The fuse in the plug.
The batteries in the remote.
A break in the power wire or plug connection.
The manual ON/OFF switch in the TV.
The infrared receiver switch in the TV.
The infrared sender switch in the remote.
Have your TV degauzed (clear the static build up).

Another IR Sensor problem (I think)


If you get to the point where you can not use the remote anymore you will need the help of a repairmen to replace the remote receiver but before He does he needs to check if the receiver is receiving the necessary voltage to operate.
