If the green light is not lighting up, you will need to check out the standby power supply inside the TV set, or if this set has a DM board, you will need to change the capacitors. Good Luck

SOURCE: Mitsubishi VS-50607 Won't Turn On

This model is equipped with a self-diagnosis feature to help with diagnosis of shutdown problems. To activate this turn the unit on let it shutdown then press the input/device and menu buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold them in for 5 seconds after 5 seconds the power LED on the front panel will blink a two digit sequence. This will be one set of blinks a short pause then another set of blinks, this will repeat 5 times. 1 - 2 = no error detected 2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current) 2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies) 2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection) 2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source.

Put a fan in it. Something is overheating in the unit and by placing a small fan in the back, inside the back cover, the lines disappear. Hope it works for you, it did for me.

You've mad the right decison; fuses can fail due to metal fatigue as they flex a little each time current flows through them of ceases but a 2nd fuse is unlikely to fail instantly. This indicates a true problem.
If you found the fuse, it was probably located on the main power supply board and this item has likely failed.
Look for an assembly number on that board and call a Mitsu service company and inquire about repair or replacement cost. Either one can range from ~$75 to $150.
It would be interesting to know if the fuse blew as soon as the unit was plugged back in or only when you tried to turn it on with the remote or power button on the set.
If it blew only by plugging it in, that power board is the culprit. If it blew as you tried to turn it on, it could be a failed 2nd power supply for the CRTs that is often located separate from the main supply where the fuse was.
About any E-tech could ferret out the which of the two is at fault so you might consider having a pro do the repair but if you know the failure sequence you might choose to gamble on making the decision yourself.
Good luck-

It comes on and then it goes off

This just happened to me as well. Keep it plugged in for about five minutes without trying to turn it on. Then try. This will ultimately tell you that your convergence chip is out. If the screen comes back on, it will look distorted. This is most definantly that chip going out. I suggest a tv repair kit or trash it. You can find a vs 45605 here:

We lost power the other night. Now I have a continuous green blinking light and it won't turn on. I have tried everything the manual says.

Try Going To The Mitsubishi Web Site. Downloading The Mitsubishi Service Manuals If You Don't Already Have It. It Will recommend The parts You Need To ordering. Circuit board photos are also shown which provide a visual reference during the repair process.

If you decide to have a service technician do the repair, insist that the "DM" module is removed from the TV and ONLY the four 1000uF, 16V Capacitors (Caps) located on the DM Module are replaced. MOST techincians will INSIST on replacing the entire DM Module and not simply the capacitors. The cost is about $200 for a technician to replace the capacitors and $1000 for replacement of the DM Module. As you will read below, doing the repair yourself will cost less than $4.00 for the 4 Caps.

When I turn on the tv I see the green light power come on and then it will just shut off right away

Depending on actual model number most of these sets have a self check.

When green light 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 several times.

Let me know what error code you find and comment here and I will tell you what it means.

If this told you something you did not know rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.
