Question about Mitsubishi VS-5059 50" Rear Projection Television

4 Answers

No picture, sound is fine

Had my VS-5059 since early '96, never a problem before yesterday. All of a sudden in the middle of a movie last night, there was a small bright flash on the screen and then the picture went black. Sound continues to work from multiple inputs and power LED is on, but absolutely no light on the screen. Tried the hold the Input/Menu buttons for 8 seconds trick to look for an error code, no response on the power LED. What do I do next??

    My Mitsubishi VS5059 50" projection TV suddenly has no video. Audio works fine from all inputs but completely black screen, not even a hint of light from any of the 3 guns. One response suggested something called a "flyback" (I have no idea what a flyback is) on the main board may be the problem, another suggested the video card might be fried. How do I find out if this is worth fixing or it's time for the scrap heap for this baby?

    Any other thoughts on this out there? I'd hate to throw this set away if there is any possibility of salvaging it at a reasonable cost.

Try checking the horizontal output transistor as that is one of the most common failure parts. This is a 3-legged part attached to a heatsink close to the flyback transformer (part with large red wire coming out the top)

    At this point, I would be checking the cables first. How is the dish
    connected to the TV? Since the VCR works as expected, the TV video and
    audio circuits are functioning. It is possible that the particular
    input you are using for the Dish is bad, but lets verify the cables
    first. Update this with the status of the cables and simple diagram of
    the connections you are using.

    Are there any other indications at all? Blinking light? Also, are
    you familiar with soldering? If so, try resoldering any connections on
    the board that appear grainy or have rings.

This sounds like a broken flyback on the main board....about 70.00 for part but they will charge you about $300.00 to $500.00 in labor

The cost of repair for this problem will be around $600 min. and then there is no guarantee something else won't fail due to age and hours of operation, new LCD TV's are very cheap now, less than $1000 for a 46" wide screen, when u see the quality of the picture even in normal 480i resolution u will be amazed

Mitsubishi VS-55609 distorted Picture Flickers


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs. To get fixed either call in a local TV repair company or goto sites such as Tv Repair Kits to get a repair kit with instructions. Here is there link.

They have put together complete kits for most models that include the parts, step by step photo instructions, repair assistance, etc.

Mitsubishi VS-55609 distorted Picture Flickers


This is a convergence problem and not really a DIY Many amateurs try it to save money but end up spending more on it than a professional. There are dozens on here that managed to fix it for a day or two only to have it fail again.

cost of fix about $300.

I have a mitsubishi vs 5059, when i open the TV I get a black square covering most of the tv but i can hear the sound and also see the picture outside of the black square. I don't know if there is an error...


You can likely buy a replacement remote here:
Remotes.com
'Universal' remotes exist only in your dreams; there is no such thing since the manufacturers cannot agree on a basic code set that would work with any set. None of them can control every function of every brand and model made.

Projection TV, Sound but no Picture


If this Tv is a model year 1996 or 1998, It is quite possible your vertical IC needs resoldered. It is located on the small signal board. This board [quite large anyway] is the board on the left. I don't know the location off hand. The IC has seven pins and located on a heatsink, It is a TDA series. Resolder any and all grounds you see. May as well get the Large Signal board [On the right] resoldered. The other problem would be the P I P board, a small board standing up, that can be removed and replaced. But try the earlier first. This is tedious, but will produce results.

VS60601 Picture yesterday, none today


That model will usually leak coolant directly onto the vertical output area and that will put the tubes into protective blanking and you will have sound but no picture.

Dark Picture to no picture


Probably has some bad solder connections in the deflection/ power supply area, if you dont know about electronics, might call a repairman and put a few hundred $ into it or junk it, also it is not HD, just FYI

Trouble!!


Most of the time when theres no picture on a mitsubishi projection set, theres no verticle sweep. Most likly cause is the verticle output IC or the b+ feeding the IC or Both. This is not a consermer replaceable parts. It could also be the PIP module if the set has one . Remember these sets have alot of hi-voltage even when the sets unplugged. Good Luck
