Question about Mitsubishi WS-55311 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Mitsubishi WS-55311, 4 yrs old, flashing screen on all inputs

Until now this TV was working perfectly. Recently, from any input setting it will suddenly flash a blank screen (all black) in a pulsing manner but in irregular increments in the middle of watching TV, playing XBOX or even with just a blue screen. When this even happens neither the remote nor the TV operating panel function. One time the volume just spiked up to full blast without me touching anything. I checked all connections and they are secure. Please help. Is this just a simple issue or is my TV possessed??!!!!

First thing to try is to press the reset button on the front of the TV. This forces a system reset.

VX37L Screen Suddenly Went Blank, Now No Image, Sound Only on Cable Input, VIZIO Logo Lights Up


Hello,
turn on the set, grab a bright flash light and dim the lights in the room. Shine the flash light on the screen, if you see a faint picture on the screen, you are dealing with a backlight problem. There are several things that can cause this. One, a bad backlight inverter, two, faulty 24vdc power supply, three, bad main board, or a bad faulty backlamp.

Try changing your input choices until you get a picture. This usually means that the tv is on and functioning properly but the input method you have chosen is not the right one. what I mean by input choices are aux, cable, input one or two ect. check to see where the antenna is connected to your tv by which input method you are using on the back of the tv. Then change that input method to match by clicking the button on the remote that changes it.

My TV screen appears for a second then turns black, then a few seconds later appears again and the turns black again. The channel sound is perfectly fine. My Cable company tried everthing and it still...


If the tv isn't fully shutting down. but just flashing on and off then it
sounds like a backlight supply fault.
All LCD screens have what can only be described as micro flouro lights inside the screen module.
it is possible that the power supply is faulty causing them to flash on and off every now and then. or the tubes themselves are damaged.
to confirm this..
Lay the tv down flat on its back and power up in a well lit room
get down close to the screen and look across it at a acute angle
now if the black screen looks like it is still displaying an image then it's definatley your backlights!

in which case it could be a simple fault in the power supply.
so if your feeling confident in yourself i can talk you through what to look for in the supply..but try this first and get back to me.

hope this helps,ben :-)

I have a hitachi rptv model #43FWX20B and the picture has a red tint to it. Opened back up and red green and blue bulbs light up. red bulb stays bright while blue and green go dim to bright as tv plays....


Howdy;
Since you don't have any white lines with the red screen/picture I would say that the red bulb (CRT) is conducting too much. There is an adjustment control for that. The 'sceen' control is behind the speaker cover and service cover. Turn red screen control slightly to the left until you get a good black and white picture.

Good Luck, Big Irish.

Mitsubishi WS-55311 flashing screen


First suggestion is to unplug your unit for 24 hours, if does not correct your concerns, you may have fluid leakage from the tubes onto the pc boards. Make sure you have proper air venting around the tv. If problem persist call factory authorized dealer in your area. good luck
