IT CAN BE HAPPEND BECAUSE OF FAULTY POWER SUPPLY
AND BAD HORIZONTAL OUTPUT SECTION.
IN THIS CASE I THINK IT SHOULD BE HORIZONTAL SECTION.

ARE YOU ON LINE

Mitsubishi Projection TV shuts off


A model number would help but many have a self check; when turn set on and power light (green?) comes on and a few seconds later off on the front of the set press and hold both the menu and input (label may be source) for at least 5 seconds and release both.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like 1 blink, 2 blinks and pause and repeat it for a total of 5 times.

If you have unplugged the set it will always show the 1,2 above which is no error found, power it back and turn it on again, when fails do the check again.

let me know what error you find.

I have a rear projection Mitsubishi VS-70803 and fixed it with the help of eagle338 it was working fine for a year and a half. So new issue is I was watching TV and all the sudden i hear a faint spark


The set MAY have the self check feature.

If the set is plugged in and you turn it on and a few seconds later the power light goes off:

On front of set press and hold both the menu and input (device on some) buttons at same time for at least 5 seconds and release both.

Power light should then blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks a pause and repeat the error for a total of 5 times.

If you get an error code let me know what it is.

TV turns on, then turns itself off about 2 seconds later.


set has a self diagnostic---after set does shut down press and hold MENU AND DEVICE(INPUT) buttons on front of set for 5 seconds----if 2 blinks, a pause and 2 more blinks: this is short protection error code---The set does use 2 Stk394-250 and each is protected by a pico fuse in the power supply---if either fuse is blown the set will shut down(it detects no voltage or missing voltage;) It is not uncommon for a shorted IC to cause this problem; if you locate the STK's look carefully at the resistors around them---if any are discolored or burnt---you have found your problem.

I was watching it and it just shut off when i turn it on 3 seconds later it shuts off again


this set has a self diagnostic feature:

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}


UNPLUG TV AND THEN PLUG BACK IN---TURN ON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ON FOR A MOMENT AND GOES OFF.

PRESS AND HOLD “device” and “menu” buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release both together.


Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem


******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protect the Convergence IC or IC’s is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergence IC and shut down.


SET WILL REPEAT BLINK ERROR CODE UP TO 5 TIMES AND THEN TO GET IT TO REPEAT MORE YOU HAVE TO UNPLUG SET AND TRY TO TURN ON AGAIN.


IF IT IS 2 AND THEN 2---USUALLY
CONVERGENCE CIRCUIT PROBLEM

When I power up, 5 seconds later this back projector TV turns itself off


t does sound like a bulb problem, either its over heating and shutting off to protect itself, or its already shot. Give a TV repair shop a call and see if they can give you an approximate price, then decide to ditch or repair it.

TV won' turn on


Solder, solder, solder! Shut down circuits protect crts to avoid permanent damage. If any of the deflection circuits are defective, or intermittent, shut down occurs. I have not only seen bad solder on deflection circuits, especially vertical, but also intermittent connections on the yokes themselves. I've also seen shorted convergence ics cause shut down. Don't forget solder connections in the power supply.
