It's running through a self diagnosis when the light blinks. The 10 blinks just happens to be how long it take to find a problem. Would have to be plugged into Variac and started at about 90 volts in order to keep it from shutting down. The life of a Television is averaged at 10 years, however most last longer and it could be something very simple to fix or something major. Thing is get an estimate from a reputable co before having it fixed and consider the cost to repair, age of the TV vs the price and warranty of a new one.

Sher3sc@aolI have a Mitsubishi hd 1080 series and the power button goes off as soon as you turn it on. How can I fix this?


The set has a self check feature: when green light (power) goes out on the front of the set press and hold both the menu and input buttons at same time for at least five seconds and release both.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like: 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it several times.

If the set was unplugged you will have to try to turn it on and then do the check.

2,2 is short protection and usually means (98%) convergence problem.

1,2 is no error detected etc.

Let me know what you find and I will help.

Mitsubishi rear projection tv.. 55 inch made in june 2003... will not turn on... no lights blink nothing no sound.. push button nothing happens.... looked in back not knowing what to look for or look at...


IF power light on front comes on for a second or two and goes off do the self check this set has:

On front of set when power light goes off, press and hold both the Input and Menu buttons at the same time for more than 5 seconds and release both buttons.


Power light should blink a two digit error code like: 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat the code four more times.


If this information helps and you want to know what error code found means rate this solution as very helpful and comment here and I will tell you what it means.

Heard a pop, tv went off, then doesnt come back on


Your unit has some sort of PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur. The sound is it starting up, shutting down, over and over.

You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done.

Have an old sony HDTV proj tv, and the picture went out last night. I heard sort of a "pop" then no picture


Pop sound shows that some thing went wrong inside TV and most probably any part got busted.
Let me know model number of your Sony TV and does its standby red light blinking? if yes, how many times it blinks between 3 seconds interval.

No Picture, Power light Blinking 3 times then repeats


3 times blink shows lamp cover is removed or not installed properly on TV.
Please take out lamp inside TV and check, seems its broken as you heard loud pop.
Thanks.

Panasonic TH 42PX50U Red power light flashes 6 times


Most of the time when this happens it is the ysus board, that noise you heard was a capacitor popping. Another board runs about $175 and thats if you do it your self. A shop will most likely charge around 500-600, hope this helps, you could also try contacting panasonic and trying to get past the tech and onto casemanagement where you might get somewhere with an out of warranty fix.

EIGHT Blinks---Problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and
blinks the self-diagnosis code. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401 and 402.
