Question about Mitsubishi VS-45607 45" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Tv turns on with difficulty

Mitsubishi VS 5004R rear projection TV. It takes many attempts with the remote or from the power button of the set for the tv to turn on. I can here a relay click each time the power button is depressed, but the set will turn on only after the first click is followed by a louder click. What can I do to repair this????

    It does'nt matter when it's hot or cold or if it's been unpluged for days. the problem is consistant. You can depend on the tv to turn on only with a dozen or two attempts. I need specific instructions for repair.

This is an older Mitsubishi projection TV set and does not have a fan or a bulb to go out. These sets are very common for the caoacitors in the power supply and the sweep power supply to go bad. To find these bad capacitors, you will need the service manual, and you can download that here:http://www.servicemanuals.net/results.aspx?type=SM&brand=0&model=%20VS%205004R. You will also need to get a capacitor checker to check the capacitors in circuit, and thats called an ESR meter. There is simply no easy way to fix this TV set without doiing these steps.

First try unplugging the set from the wall completely for about 20 minutes. Does the TV function normally from the buttons on the set itself?, just to eliminate any possibility of the remote being the problem. If you disconnect all the inputs that go into the set, do you get the same problem? How many hours do you have on the lamp approximately - usually if a lamp has problems, it wouldn't be intermittent or occasional, but if the lamp is nearing its expected life span, then it is just possible. Removing and reinstalling the lamp may be worth a try, just in case there is a bad contact. Does it seem to work more easily when the set is warm? If the relay itself is ok, which it sounds like it is, then the problem is most likely in the power supply somewhere, especially if it appears better when the set is warm. I had no luck finding a user manual or service manual for this set online - if you have one somewhere check to see if there is a "reset" function for the set - I'll keep looking. Are you able to open the set up, firstly to identify the relays in question and check them, and also to inspect the power transformer and associated circuitry? Waiting for your info, Hope this helps :)

    PS - does the cooling fan start up from the first relay click, or the second - if you get no fan sometimes, then the problem could well be there - there is usually a protection that stops the set operating if the fan is not running.

Mitsubishi Projection TV Model #VS-50603 will not turn on.


The TV is going into a "protect mode", the micro-processor has sensed a circuitry problem and has shut the set down so that no furhter damage can happen, you will need to have the TV serviced by a Mitsubishi tech. Good luck !

Brian:
Have you just tried to unplug the A/V for an hour or two and then re-plug the power back in and try turning it off to see if this 'power off tactic' cures the problem?
The reason for the code is for a qualified service tech to go into the service menus for adjustments.

Tv not coming on


try removing batteries from all remotes, a faulty remote may be turning your TV on/off. If it still does this, there is a power problem and you likely need a tech to look at it.

Mitsubishi VS50605 rear projection TV won't come on


The power supply caps in the light engine power supply were faulty when they were installed. You need to remove the power supply and take it to your local electronics shop where they can remove the (7) faulty 1000uf 16v electrolytic capacitors and insert new ones. If you remove the power supply yourself (takes only a philips screwdriver) and reinstall it yourself, the electronics shop shouldn't charge you for more than an hour worth of time. The caps would be about $10.

Here's a photograph (thanks Don Crawford).
