Question about Mitsubishi VS-50605 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Mitsubishi VS50605 rear projection TV won't come on

When I attempt to turn on the Mitsubishi VS50605 projection TV, the green "timer" light on the front of the TV briefly lights, then goes off. Otherwise, nothing on the TV comes on (no picture, no sound, no clicks). This problem is the same whether I try to turn on with the remote or the switch directly on the TV. The TV had been working fine, sat idle for 2 weeks, and this malfunction suddenly appeared. I have a 50 in Mitsubishi big screen like the vs-50605. I would like to know how can i make the picture lighter and not so dark and how can I lighten up the red its to bright

    I have the same symptoms. The power light clicks on and immediately turns off. I tried a different outlet etc and get the same thing. I read that it may be a number of things including a power supply, fuse or a particular component on the circuit board. This is the TV I send the kids to for a break so I really need this to work....soon!

The power supply caps in the light engine power supply were faulty when they were installed. You need to remove the power supply and take it to your local electronics shop where they can remove the (7) faulty 1000uf 16v electrolytic capacitors and insert new ones. If you remove the power supply yourself (takes only a philips screwdriver) and reinstall it yourself, the electronics shop shouldn't charge you for more than an hour worth of time. The caps would be about $10.

Here's a photograph (thanks Don Crawford).

65" mitsubishi rear projection tv won't turn


IF model number posted is correct and green power light comes on for a few seconds and then goes off:
On front of set press and hold both the Menu and Input (device) buttons at the same time for at least five seconds and release both buttons.

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

Let me know what error code is found and I will tell you what it means.

Unplug the tv and leave it unplugged for a couple hours. Plug tv back in press reset button. TV led may flash for a day but should come on. I did this last night to mine and it came on at 11am today.
