    What fuse needs to be replaced and where do I find one?

  • billelliott5 Jan 09, 2009

    If it is the fuse where can I get one?

  • billelliott5 Jan 10, 2009

    I replaced the fuse near where the power cord
    enters the TV because it was blown out. After
    replacing the fuse turned on with remote and fuse repeatedly keeps blowing out? Used same fuse that I took out, 125v 5 amp Whats the problem? Tried with surge protector and without
    same result?

  • billelliott5 Jan 11, 2009

    resetting the tv was not the problem

    it was fuse and still not solved

  • billelliott5 Jan 12, 2009

Does the power indicator light illuminate for a moment or two then goes out or does it blink?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, a couple of ideas you may want to consider. explore or try:

  • normally fuse are on the power supply board or right after the AC cord inside the TV unit;
  • if the break is clean and the glass is clear, then it wouold be relatively safe to simply replace the fuse;
  • if on the otherhand there are burnt marks inside the glass capsule, then that would be indicative of other failed component that caused the fuse to blow;
  • if there are any blinking lights, then chances are that there are no blown fuse and some other major component requires looking into. Additionally this also indicates that the power supply is operative at least on the standby+5 volts;
  • if the blown fuse shows burn markings and/or defective components were determined visually, then it would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings that is if you are considering a DIY (do-it-yourself);
  • Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY, perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.
Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    Of course you could always start by checking the circuit breakers or trying the TV using another outlet.

Try this first before you tear apart your t.v. Check all the power connections and power cords. Or if the tv is plugged into a power strip check the fuse reset on the power bar or turn the switch on the power bar off and reset. If this does not work check the outlet it is plugged into. if that has no power check the fuse panel. If all of this seems ok then you should proceed with looking into the T.V.

I am only sure of this in the us

Well you would remove the back bottom rear panel and look around with a flashlight and look for a fuse couldn't tell you on that exact TV but I couldn't even find a replacment on the internet. If it has one and looks blown (burnt) then post on here and ill look online again for one.

If you can't find one Your Tv is more than likely has a problem with the power components on the inside of the TV you could take it to a repair shop search online for local tv repair shops (yellow pages) call and talk to them for a quote on diagnostics, and if there certified with your brand of tv (even if they aren't doesn't mean they can't fix it, just certified is better)

If you are in UK, there is a fuse on the power plug.

There is also an internal fuse that is placed on the power supply board, depending on the model, this can be soldered on the board.

More than a fuse it is likely a faulty power board, because a capacitor has blown.

The TV must be taken apart and inspected by a technician to fix the fault.

This is probably an issue with the TV power supply.

This will need to be replaced by a licensed Mitsubishi repair person..

Here is the link to a site where you can input your address and it will give a list of the nearest Mitsubishi service centers.

Try to reset first if nothing happens we proceed another solution;

Resetting the TV

Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can saved time.
1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet for 3 - 4 hours.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

hope this may help;

Regards,
VOTIT

Maybe I can help you
Is the tv plugged into a surge protector? If so try plugging it directly into an outlet you know is powered (sounds obvious, my apology)
If your circuit breaker has been checked, are you using the power button on the tv or a remote? Could the remote be the problem (again obvious, sorry)
If none of these fix your problem you may have fluid on the pcb's

    Did you follow the link in my last post, sounds like you have fluid on your power control boards, in other words a short. The link takes you to successful fix for this problem.

    Good luck and let me know if this worked.

Well I am thinking the fuse inside the tv is blown.  Unplug the set and all plugs in back of it.  Undo all screws on back of unit and any that have arrows pointing to them.  Carefully pull back straight back towards you.  The fuse will be on the circuit board near where the power cord enters the tv.  A blown fuse will have blackend glass.  A good fuse you will be able to see the silver wire in the fuse.

I have a Mitsubishi vs 50501 50. The picture would scramble when turned on and not give a picture unless I bumped it. Now when I turn it on it goes right back off without staying powered up.


there is probably quite a few "dry joints" that needs re soldering in the power supply section.
This should solve your problems rather than buying a new one.
Good luck and Thanks for using fixya.

I need a new Lamp. what is the parts number for a mitsubishi rear projection model number VS 50501


Hello.
in VS models there is no such a thing as a lamp. Your TV have 3 CRT tubes (picture tubes) each of them dedicated to Green, Red and Blue part of image accordingly.
It is not the part that you can easy replace by yourself and it cost new around $600 and just to refurbish existing one around $320.
But you have to refurbish all three of them at the same time. So we are talking about $1000 just for parts, not to mention enormous effort to align everything back together.
If you have bad CRT in your TV - I would advise just to trash it and invest in new one.
Lamp is replaceable in DLP projection Mitsubishi TV and it is next generation of TV"s. Model number starts with: "WD".
If you still insist on part number - I need to know what color of CRT you need - they have different part numbers.
Best regards
Russ.

What is the best way to get to those small yoke boards VS-50501


The easiest way I have found is to unplug it from the CRT to gain access.
Yes , the resistance should not keep climbing during the measurement. That is really gone if the small current induced by a meter is changing it.

Mitsubishi VS-50501 no picture sound works great


Odds are real good that the solder connections on the deflection yokes are bad. Go through the front access panel and with a small mirror look and the back side of the connector on each yoke. The top two pins of each will probably show 'ringed' solder connections.

Vs-50501 50inch projection with no picture only sound!


Are there any other symptoms like blinking lights on the front or just no picture? This could be as simple as a few capacitors being bad or something more severe. Can you solder? Do you feel comfortable working inside the set where there are potentially dangerous high voltages present even with the set unplugged? Let me know and we'll work through the diagnostic process and hopfully resolve this.

Thanks,
Dan

Mitsubishi VS-50501 - Black Screen


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.

I have a similar problem. I have tried to fix the convergence via the remote and that has not helped. My three colors are separated and the edge of the picture is bent in toward the center. I am going to try a hard reset but i suspect the convergence IC are fried. Since the set is not HD, I will probably replace it if the hard reset does not work.

Check the horizontal output transistor this could be damage and causing the problem.another thing is pilot light that cause the screen to light up.since this is a projection t.v.it does not garry a tube.
