Question about Mitsubishi WS-55859 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Power surge Mitsi WS55859

Many power surges in my area this morning. My TV is on a surge protector but it's older and I don't know how effective it is. I got the set unplugged after the 2nd round of surge. You mentioned you had a solution? I love this TV, but can't spend a lot of money on repairs right now. Any help would be appreciated Mr. Techman. You can reach me at schroederstn@bellsouth.net. My name is Christine.

After power surge panasonic hdtv projection tv model # PT-53WX42F wont come on red light flashes


Bobbie, It dose not sound like surge protector was real effective, the TV will have to come apart to diagnose what has all blown, capacitors, boards etc. Google search can help show how it is done.
Enter all your TV's info, will not power on repair.

I have a Mitsubishi projection model WS-B55 that is plugged into a surge protector. The power went off for about an hour or an hour and a half this morning, and the power light is flashing. I called...


First, to answer your last question, not all power outages and subsequent surges are created equally nor are all surge protectors. Also, after a power outage where the subsequent surge is so strong that it got past your surge protector and knocks out your TV and it's never done that before... REPLACE YOUR SURGE PROTECTOR.
However, that being said, in my experience it is unlikely that the TV is going to require a technician. Understand that the person that you spoke with in tech Support is not a technician and is reading off of a list of troubleshooting pages that are more extensive then what's in the manual. What the technician is probably not aware of is that your TV, like most home electronics, has a safety failsafe that requires the device to be separated from power completely before doing a system reset
First, after pressing the button it's supposed to flash for about a minute anyway but I'm assuming that after it's done pressing that the TV is still not firing up.
Unplug the TV, let it sit for an hour, plug it back in (to the wall, not the suspect surge protector). If the light is still flashing, press the reset button again and wait for it to stop flashing and attempt to turn it on again. If it doesn't work, unplug the TV, follow the same steps however, let it sit for 24 hours before plugging it back in. That length of time is not common but some sets do require it.
If none of this works, then I would say that it's time to call a technician.

The timer light keeps flashing and there is no picture after there was a lightning surge


Sorry to inform you but this is total disaster. The power supply and possibly the display boards have been compromised. TV;s and other sensitive equipment neeed a power surge protector boad. The cost to fix this is around 500-600 dollard. However if you have household insurance a claim can be made if you are covered for FUSION. Parts but not labor will be paid by your insurance company. Buy a surge protector board, $25 for the future protection of expensive electronics

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Ihave a sony KP53S75 TV there was apower surge and now there is no picture. The red light blinks 4 times can anyone tell me about this?


Hi, if this TV was hit by the surge and it was protected by a surge protector, please follow this reset procedure.

The STANDBY light will flash if an issue is detected within the television. This can sometimes be resolved by simply following the steps below to reset the television.
  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.

If the problem is still there and the light is still blinking 4 times, this means that the surge has destroyed the Vertical deflection component. in this case, it will have to be replaced.

please rate and have a great day.

Humming


Hi,

If you live in an high altitude area it can cause a plasma to hum.
Another thing you can try if you don't live in an area like that is using a surge protector. The thing is your power outlet could be sending what's called "Dirty Electricity" to your tv that could be causing it to hum. I would recommend something that does "power filtering" like a Panamax surge or a Monster surge.
So that you get clean power to the tv

Hope my info is useful....
Thanx for using fixya......
