Question about Mitsubishi WT-42413 42" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

4 Answers

Mitsubishi VS-4571 stopped working

I received this TV for free from some people that got a new one. Since the first time I pluged it in, it has been fuzzy for about 10 minutes till it warms up then the picture is great. Everything has been going good with it tillthis afternoon. It worked fine last night but when I turned it on today there is no picture. I can hear everything great but I can't see anything. It is just a black screen. The outlet works fine and it's not the cable because other things will work. Can you please help me fix it? I don't have the money to go buy another TV.

    I have the same problem. I am planning to chuck this and buy a new HDTV.. but unfortunately, a built-in entertainment system in my house holds this TV and I cannot find another tv of exactly this size. If I can fix this, I would be happy.

Since the first time you plugged it in, something was not right for about 10 minutes. Only you know how many times that has been! For that total length of time something has operated, or tried to operate when a voltage was slightly lower than it should have been, or something was drawing slightly more current than it should have.
Either the voltage from the power supply has gotten to the point that the TV will not even produce a fuzzy picture, or the circuitry that was overworking, (trying to produce a clear picture), finally gave up. First make sure that the voltages from the main power supply are all correct.
Once the main power sources are restored your TV should function, unless whatever was struggling to work with insufficient voltage has finally given up.

Yadayada is absolutely correct. The main reason people give these TVs away is that they need help getting it out of their house. You can get a similar TV from Craigslist. check the Free Stuff section first. I've done this several times. You may not find a free one, but you should be able to get one for very cheap. There are literally tons of these, as well as, picture tube types that people want to get rid of.
Good luck

The cost to repair will be about the same as a new flat 42"-47" screen LED. In addition due to the fact this is really obsolete tech you likely will not find parts.

Is the power light staying on? If so press imput and menu together for 5 seconds to see if the set will blink a 2 digit repeating code. If that doesnt work. Check for CRT coolant leaks on the boards. This seems to happen alot as do faulty capacitors. Coolant leaks will be located on the chassis directly under the tubes they can cause corrosion and prevent your set from starting especially in the VS models.

Sounds like you need to clean the lenses and reflective area inside your set. It is easy and all you need is a screwdriver, windex and a paper towel. UNPLUG YOUR TV.   Take off your screen and screen protector and safely set them aside. 
Clean only the lenses ( glass part) and the reflective mirror type area on the top of the inside of your set.  It will look like new. You need to do this at least once a year.

SOURCE: no picture

If i am to understand this correctly, this is a rear projection television. Inside there may be 1 - 3 " color " control boards that control the picture before going on to the projector. an accumulation of dust / dirt / debris has adverse affects on electronic componants, make sure they are dust free (compressed air cleans them off quite well. If using a home compressor, make sure there is a vapor filter to remove water from the airlines.)

If they are clean, and as you said you recently had the television serviced to replace the projection lamp, take the television back to the repair shop to have them determine the problem.

If you yourself replaced the projection lamp, be sure to check all connections are properly seated if you had to disconnect something, make sure they are in the proper places, and any connections are securely connected.

If all else fails, have a local electronics / television repair person check the unit for faulty componants.

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
