Re: mitsubishi diamond series tv

I have a 2003 mitsubishi WS-55711. While watching TV the other day it just shut off. When I pressed the power button, the green light turned on for approximately 3 secs, then shuts off. I've attempted to simply unplug it for a period of time in hopes that it would possibly reset. However, the same thing happens. Is this a problem I can fix on my own or does a professional need to fix it? If I do have a pro fix it, what is the likelyhood that it will happen again? Should I just invest in a new TV? Thanks

Re: mitsubishi diamond series tv

It sounds like you have the blinking light of death! This is a common problem with these Mitsubishi TV sets. The DM board has a fault inside of it. The DM board is the digital control board. The DM board will cost over 700 bucks and the labor will be another 2 or 300 bucks. There is however, a fix I have posted here to assist those who are handy with things like this. You can see this how-to Here: Now this is not the exact set you have but the repair procedture should be the same. there is even a link where to get the right parts from. If your set does not look like the one I used in the instructionms. I do have an update for sets with a light engine inthem to help locate the DM board and to take it out . Then simply follow the rest of the instructions as I saids before. If you want the update, leave an e-mail address and I will forward it too you. If you can do this repair, and a lot of peeps have with no problem,save at least 800 to 1000 bucks! Good Luck

I currently am experiencing my 2002 Mitsubishi diamond series tv shuttin g of after being on for 3-5 minutes

Sounds like you have a cooling issue. Do you notice if the fans inside the back of the tv are running? If not then it's overheating and turning itself off to prevent further damage.
Also The next time it happens, before you just turn it back on, press the INPUT and MENU buttons on the front panel together and hold them down for at least 6 seconds. This should cause the front LED to flash a 2 digit code. If it flashes once, then twice, then pauses and repeats, it means that the TV's computer didn't detect a problem.

Green timer light wont go away

The TV is in protect mode because there is an internal fault.
The TV must be tested and repaired at component level.
Call Mitsubishi at the number listed on the user manual.

Sounds like your TV is overheating. How dirty is the filter on the side? Is the fan on the back turning ok:? Does it look real dirty? Is so, a good cleaning is in order. Also, there is a fan under the lamp. Can you determine if it is working...the air flow may be obstructed (from the clogged filter) and it takes some additional time to cool.

ok is the set completlely dead. DOEs the Led on the front flash. if it does not flash this is an indication of a primary power interuption. POSSIbley main fuse. Now generally the main fuse does not blow unless there something else wrong. some other component shorted. Now if the light flashes then this is an indication that the main fuse is still good and that the processor is getting power and that it has detected a condition that requires it to shut down. ussaly a high voltage issue
