Question about Mitsubishi VS-45605 50" Rear Projection Television

Mitsubishi VS-45605 rear projection tv

The set does not power up at all. When it's being plugged in a relay can be heard kicking in but pushing the power switch either on the set itself or on the remote does not result in a picture or sound or even the green light illuminating - nothing happens! Fuses (4) have been checked and all are good. Any suggestions?

If the green light is not lighting up, you will need to check out the standby power supply inside the TV set, or if this set has a DM board, you will need to change the capacitors. Good Luck

It comes on and then it goes off

This just happened to me as well. Keep it plugged in for about five minutes without trying to turn it on. Then try. This will ultimately tell you that your convergence chip is out. If the screen comes back on, it will look distorted. This is most definantly that chip going out. I suggest a tv repair kit or trash it. You can find a vs 45605 here:

Sure. I have had one repair person tell me it's not worth fixing. But, I am surprised that there have been no solutions posted.

G'day mate

To all accounts it does, this can be checked by verifying that it has TWO antenna inputs. To get the PIP working, you will need to split and feed both antenna inputs. Seems to be set up this way to cater to PIP with set top boxes/convertors that have RF outputs

the 2 tuners can be spotted as the shielded assemblies with covers either side in the lower right corner of this pic. There is a mod floating around that involves bypassing the PIP to fix a fault that the set develops. This may have been done to your already.

check here for details.

Hope this helps you. A fixya rating is a great thankyou for my efforts to assist you . Cheers

Veertical lines

Put a fan in it. Something is overheating in the unit and by placing a small fan in the back, inside the back cover, the lines disappear. Hope it works for you, it did for me.

No Picture on Mitsubishi v45605 rear projection tv

If it works the way you have it setup now, leave that way. Plug all your video sources to the denon if possible and leave it that way.
If the denon has the feature to change channels like a cable converter then you can use it or if you still have a VCR you can also use it as a tuner just to tune the cable channels and use the audio/video outputs from it to the TV or denon receiver.
The tuner might not even be available anymore and if it's, is expensive.
Good Luck.

Mitsubishi vs 45605 no picture

yes if the tuner is out and you want to save some money then running an external set top box or your denon are fine. more often than not you will also have better picture quality.
