Re: Power supply

Try unplugging the red connector on the IC board (the board with the 2 stk chips) and try to turn it on, the picture will look pretty crappy but if it comes on it is probably the stkxxx-xxx chips replace with oem parts or you will be doing this again soon.

Re: Power supply

Sounds like you only have the stanby circuit function on the power supply. More information is needed to help further. Does it have a smell to it? Can you hear any relays tripping over? Can you hear high voltage build to the tubes?

The tv keeps turning its self off the red light comes on then we unplug for a while and it comes back on for a while

Not knowing the brand or model (not indicated here) the set is trying to make it from standby (part of the power supply that runs 7/24 if set is plugged to power) to On and having no success.

You have this posted as a projection set but there are hundreds of different brands or models.

TV won't turn on when push power button red light flashes

You can unplug the tv for 1 minute and then plug it back in since you have a red light you know it is getting power, also don't plug it into a surge protector when trying this. If the tv still has a flashing red light a service center will need to repair the tv, replacing more than likely the power supply or small signal board.

Mitsubishi VS50605 rear projection TV won't come on

The power supply caps in the light engine power supply were faulty when they were installed. You need to remove the power supply and take it to your local electronics shop where they can remove the (7) faulty 1000uf 16v electrolytic capacitors and insert new ones. If you remove the power supply yourself (takes only a philips screwdriver) and reinstall it yourself, the electronics shop shouldn't charge you for more than an hour worth of time. The caps would be about $10.

Here's a photograph (thanks Don Crawford).

Need Help big screen turns on thens goes off

a tv has two components, firstly a power supply produces high voltage to trigger a line transformer, in turn a transformer produces smaller voltages. firstly check if the ht is constantly been produced from a supply, if this is there than go to a line transformer, and check voltages at the output.

Does Not Turn On

I actually ended up with this set. It turned out to be a very nasty short circuit on the audio board. To trouble shoot disconnect PSD5 to isolate the power supply. It's the 3rd connector from the back on the left side of the power supply. If you turn on the tv and now see 5 green leds and the one red led, look for a short outside of the power supply. The short on this set was on the left side of the audio board (which is to the left of the power supply) There was a wire add and a part add covered in wax. The bare wire was touching a ground but you have to remove the wax to see it. Since this may be a change that was made to all sets of this model, it may be a common failure. Good Luck all.
