Question about Mitsubishi WS48511 48" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

When powering on the tv, it sounds like it starts the process (green led turns on, can hear relay switching), then it just turns back off again.

Hi, I found a potential solution for my tv on this site. I'm looking for assistance with the troubleshooting. The blog I found: ... points to a potential problem with the horizontal output transistor. I need help in identifying that transistor and knowing how to test it. My TV is a Mitsubishi WS48511. I can't get anyone in Canada to work on it as Mitsubishi no longer sells/supports TV's in canada. The local folks don't want to work on Mitsubishi's either. Please help! Please describe how I can identify that transistor and how I should go about testing it. Thanks in advance, Claude

Samsung HLN467W Flashing "LAMP" LED

remove the lamp and visually check if inside looks broken.if visually do not see any thing wrong,check if you have 300 volts dc supply on the ballast which starts the lamp.if you do then the ballast may be defective.if you do not then the power supply should be checked.
the lamp should always be tried first especially if is older than two years.
note - be aware about the switch at the door lamp.the door should be closed,otherwise tv will not work.if you remove the back cover,make sure to bypass the switch temporarely so you could work on the set.

Power LED blinks red

it is a bad fan. it also could be a power supply. Quite often the real problem is dirt clogging up the fan(s) to the point that they need to be replaced. Operation of the set in a dirty environment is not a good idea

Progressive power up problem

Yeppers. Sounds like the standby power supply has a bad capacitor in it and the regulator Ic is defective. These parts should only be replaced by quilified technician as there is very high voltage inside these sets. Good Luck
