Sometimes a static electricity build up will cause this to occur. Is the humidity in your house to low? Has the issue resolved itself?

I have a rear projection Mitsubishi VS-70803 and fixed it with the help of eagle338 it was working fine for a year and a half. So new issue is I was watching TV and all the sudden i hear a faint spark


The set MAY have the self check feature.

If the set is plugged in and you turn it on and a few seconds later the power light goes off:

On front of set press and hold both the menu and input (device on some) buttons at same time for at least 5 seconds and release both.

Power light should then blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks a pause and repeat the error for a total of 5 times.

If you get an error code let me know what it is.

Tv went off and won't come back on.


the arcing sound is some kind of high voltage leak, which will shut down the tv. pull the speaker grill off and the access board, look at the 3 picture tubes, turn the set on you will see where the leak is, it's usually the high voltage splitter, which has a high voltage wire going into it and 3 high voltage wires coming out going to the picture tubes, if it arcs from the splitter you need to change it, if it arcs from one of the picture tube wires you need to pull the tube out and fix the high voltage leak, and possibly a cooling fluid leak caused it, not an easy reapir, you probably need a repairman.

TV turns on with a green screen with curved horizontal lines.


It seems you may have a serious problem with your video board. That's why you are getting those symptoms. It's better if you replace it asap!

Had a power outage while watching tv. Then 3 blinking lights.


This is an on-going problem with DLP sets. Normally you shut the set off and the cooling fan cools the lamp down and then it shuts off. In your case, of which it's not your fault, however your lamp has taken a major hit by not properly cooling down, in turn, you need to replace your lamp at this time.
I suggest in the future if you have an electrical storm and a chance of a power outage while your watching tv, I would'nt play that model or any other model of a DLP set.

TV made popping sound and then shut off


You need to look in your owners manual for the telephone number and order a new bulb. It should cost about $200, but they will ship it overnight and minimize your downtime.

I've replaced 2 in my WD-52525 in the last 3 years, the first one went like yours did, very suddenly, with an audible POP!! The second one was preceded by an orange warning light, which the book says is a warning that the bulb has about 20 hours left on it.

To replace the bulb, UNPLUG THE TV, remove the left speaker screen, with a philips screw driver unscrew the bulb, pull it out by the handle, then replace it with the same type, in reverse order. This is a very easy replacement that does NOT need to be done by a service technician to complete.

Akai PT5598HDX/SMS won't turn on


Just a thaught, I could be wrong, maybe a problem with the power button on the remote ? It might shut the TV off, and when you do keep pressing the remote button, the red light on the TV will keep flashing like that also. Ive seen this prob on a few other blogs, so seems to be pretty common. I know I like to keep the remote pointed at the TV all the time, maybe try pointing it away for a while, just to see.
