Question about Mitsubishi WS-55513 55" Rear Projection HDTV

Can not reset tv

I turned the set off the other day with the front on/off switch. This morning, I tried to power up the set and even after trying to use the system reset, un-plugging the set, and trying everything I could, the set would not power up. I unplugged the power and waited the customery five seconds, used both the remote and or power switch. When the system reset is pushed, the gree light in front blinks rapidely, but it goes out after that. I have had this happen before. I saw some possible solutions to this problem in other postings.

Re: can not reset tv

These sets have a common problem with the front panel buttons sticking and not allowing the set to turn on. Unplugging the control panel and using the remote to turn the set on normally diagnoses that problem (If you try this, remember that once the set is origionally plugged in, it takes about a minute and half before the set can be turned back on. Another problem could be in the convergence circuit. If you hit the power button and the indicator light comes on and shuts off then that is the circuit that is most suspect. The -24 volt line fusible link as well as the 24 volt line will open up if the convergence IC shorts out. There is a way to diagnose this set by pushing in and holding the menu and device button on the set at the same time until the indicator light starts flashing. There are two sets of flashes, such as, 2 flashes and then 3 flashes. Hope this helps.

1 have a 6 year-old Mitsubishi model WS-48511 series 1080 rear projection TV that now won't turn on. A few days ago we shut the TV off, and now when i plug it in the blinking green power light...

This is called the blinking green light of death-----only one of two things can cause this problem.

First: remove front speaker grill (IT PULLS OFF) AND remove inspection plate behind it; look for the two bundles of wires coming down and to the right from the front keyboard of the set.

Unplug both plugs you find (different and marked so you cannot mix them up-----the idea is to take the front keyboard out of circuit-----set will still function with remote as receiver is behind front screen)

Try (after 70 seconds) to turn on with remote

If it comes on---defective reset button on front keyboard----use set only with remote or remove and remove actual reset switch---it is located behind and part of frame for screen----entire front screen would have to be removed to get at it.

Second: if disconnection of the front keyboard does not help, the DM unit is bad.

As you look from back of set it is large metal box at extreme left side.

The blinking light is the unit trying to "Boot" up-----these have a problem where caps and a few other parts in that unit fail-----kits on the net are available----Mitsubishi no longer sells or services these units but PTS Electronics does repair them.

Let me know if you have questions and try disconnection of the front keyboard FIRST.

The most likey cause of this is poor solder connections either in the power suply area or the convergence circuit area. If you can solder and are comfortable working inside the set where there are potetially dangerous high voltages (even when unplugged), you maight be able to resolve this yourself. Try resoldering any connections on the boards that appear grainy or have rings. Update this with your results.

Pioneer SDT50W1 rear projection TV clicks off when switched on.

Hey dudes...even i hav had the same problem that too with the same model specified here..Its a problem actually concerned with the power circuit boards of the tv. Its best to get it checked by an authorized technician. For me I had to replace a transistor on one of the boards. But after that my tv came up with a new problem....the colours appear like rainbows! Could nyone xplain y dis is happening?

TV will turn on, but not respond

Good Day, mistymiles;

Try this before calling a factory authorized service center:

Press " menu 2 > 4 > 7 > 0 > enter", on remote. After settings have been initialized > press the system reset button on the front, once the LED stops blinking > reprogram settings and tuner channels (if not using box). IF NOT fixed call for service (get estimate before repair) and suspect repair of DM PCB (printed circuit board).

Good Luck, big IRISH.

TV will not power up

does the set do anything what so ever when you press power/ Are there any lights lit on the front at all?

TV acts like a timer is controling the power...comes on only at night

How old is this set? If any age, might be time for a replacement, you can get a 50" for under $1000 now. Dont know about your issue, I have never heard of one not turning on because of a timer, suspect you may have a micro issue, the power cord unplug would be advisable, but sounds like you tried it, have you tried the buttons on the front? Do you clean the screen with something liquid? Some of these the buttons go bad and confuse the micro if you use liquids on the screen and let some dribble down the frame. Might pull the speaker grill off and there should be 2 1/4" screws on 2 brackets loosen and the brackets will drop, the screen can come out and there is a long connector that goes from the front to just behind the middle tube and if you unplug it it will kill the buttons on the front and if it is your problem will allow the remote to function, reassemble reverse of disassembly.

Toshiba 42wt29b. screen keeps turning blue

MMMM Hard call here. The fact that it does try to come on blue maybe an indication that the power supply regulator circuit is good. It could also be a shorted blue tube and when it comes on its overloading the screen drive and the set goes into overload protection shutdown. The real way to see Would be to pull off the blue crt socket as well as the Hi Voltage lead on the crt and see if the set comes on without blue. If it does Your gonna need a pict tube. If it dosent then troubleshooting along the switched power supplys would be neccassary.. BUT I advise you THAT IF YOU HAVE NO EXPERIENCE TROUBLESHOOTING TV SETS PLEASE SEEK A PRO TO ASSIST YOU AS THERES VERY HIGH VOLTAGE INSIDE THESE SETS EVEN IF THEY ARE UNPLUGGED. GOOD LUCK
