First to be sure, unplug the set from power and then plug back--this clears the error buffer. Repeat the self check:

PRESS AND HOLD "device"(input) 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.

As you can see 2,4 is vertical problem----might want to remove speaker grill, inspection plate behind it and look up front--vertical is on middle board at right front as seen from front of set.

Look for ANY tiny drops of clear liquid which damages parts and is toxic-----glycol is what I would look for first.

SOURCE: Mitsubishi ws-65809 powers on for 2 seconds.

2,2 error code is short protection---98% of the time it means one of the two soldered in pico fuses this set uses is blown----there are several---but your problem means if it is ws-65809 one of the two stk-392-570 convergence chips has failed.

I will attach a photo---they are on the middle circuit board and the two to the right are for convergence--both are green and 5 amp--with the set unplugged check both of them like any fuse--no reading means bad.

If you find this--I HAVE START TO FINISH, STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS REPAIR IN THIS SET--SHOPS WILL GET 300 or more but you if you can do it yourself buy everything you need for under 40 dollars--I can tell you the best place to get the chips, fuses, etc.

If you want the instructions let me know and I will post them here for you---they are based on my own actual experience doing this repair in this kind of set hundreds of times.

Here is a photo of what the two chips look like--The one in the picture says 392-560 but yours uses two that look just like it--STK-392-570.

Hello There, Its seems that the circuit board has problems. You'll have to get it replaced ASAP before the board is ruined completely.
The same thing also happened to me 2-3 weeks ago. the techs came in and had to replace the board since 1 circuit was damaged.
It will cost around $100

SOURCE: Mits ws-65809 Won't turn on Blinking 2 2

2-2 is a error code that means short protection.

Usually in this set it means one of the fuses that protects the convergence circuit is shorted because of a bad convergence Ic.

I HAVE PHOTOS OF THE FUSES-- and THE PROTECTION RESISTORS- and I also have step by step from start to finish instructions for this repair in this set.


If you want the instructions and photos give me a vote here and I will be happy to email them to you and answer any questions you have. I have done hundreds of Mitsubishi sets with this problem---I just got home from doing one a few miles away from where I live.

REGARDS, SD TECH

SOURCE: Mitsubish WS-819 Protective Shutdown. 2 blinks, pause, 2 blinks

Over 95% of the time a 2 - 2 blink code on that model is a convergence output problem. You need to replace both of the convergence output IC's and perhaps the pico fuses feeding them voltage. The pico fuses are F9A04 and F9A05. They are on the same board with the convergence outputs.

I have a mitsubishi model ws-65809. i press the power button the green light comes on then it shuts back off.


IF YOU have unplugged it plug it back and try to turn it on, when green power light goes out:

On the front of the set press and hold BOTH the menu and input buttons at the same time--hold both for at least 5 seconds and release both.

This is the self check this set has: power light will blink a 2 digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it several times.

The 2,2 error code is the most common and is short protection and I know if that code how to fix the set---for many customers it can be a do it yourself fix with parts cost under 35 dollars total.

Let me know what code you get and I will try to help you.

Fixed over 1,000 of these Mitsubishi sets.

Turn on the TV and only Timer light is on , no sound & picture


press the menu and input/device buttons both in together on the front of the set and hold for 5 seconds and then see if the set blinks a number of blink pauses and then blinks another number such as 2 blink pause 2 blinks which would be a 22 caode. It then repeats that code.
