Question about Mitsubishi WS-55807 TV

Mitsubishi WS-55313 fuse blowing, no power

I was recently moving some circuits in my basement and ran across a borrowed neutral wire that was from another circuit which I was unaware of at the time. Well, when I turned the circuit on for my A/V wall, there was no place for the electricity to go and I obviously damaged a few things....

The most expensive being my TV. It is 5 years old and out of the extended warranty so I took the panel off the back and noticed the blown fuse right by the incoming cord. I replaced that but now, when I plug the TV in, the fuse immediately pops.

I'm sure there are a multitude of possible problems but I'm not sure if it's worth fixing. My friend said it's probably a transformer and to take the board out and he'd replace it (I think there are 3 boards on the bottom of the TV). I don't really think it would be that easy. Does anyone have an opinion on whether or not I should repair it? There was absolutely nothing wrong with it until the wiring mishap. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. If I need to explain what happened in greater detail, please let me know.

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Well there was a place for the electricity to go... 'cause it obviously fried a few things :) I certainly hope you get that part fixed. I don't know what you mean by a 'borrowed' neutral, but it sounds like you're putting 220/240v through your receptacles rather than the normal 110/120v.... as for the transformer in the tv, yes, that is quite possible. I'm assuming you've been plugging the tv into a known good circuit, and you've tested it to make sure it's putting out 120v.

My 55313 power light dose not come on


The SMPS section is not oscillating. Your TV need a through checkup. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electric shock. Instead, contact any experienced service technician, or the nearest service center.

What does code 2.2 mean. that's what i get on my ws-55313 ty.


It means short protection.

98% chance one of the two pico fuses that protect the convergence circuit is blown.

Repair entails replacing the two STK-394-250 CHIPS AND THE BLOWN FUSE.

This may or may not be a do it yourself repair.

Let me know if you have questions, total parts cost would be about 35 dollars.

My 55313 mitsubishi just will not power on. green light comes on but then goes not off not ever producing a picture. ran error codes, none detected? what could be wrong? plz help


Hello.
Just in case if you have done it wrong.... To retrieve error code plug TV into wall outlet. Push power button, let it do whatever it does. After that push BOTH buttons in fron of TV named "Menu" and "Input" and hold it for at least 5-6 seconds.
Green LED in front of TV will start blinking error code (when it starts you can let buttons go).
If it clinks like "2 blinks, pause, 2blinks longer pause, repeat" most likely you have convergence issue. Two convergence amps have to be replaced along with couple PICO fuses that already open.
I would strongly recommend to let professional do this repair. As well in case of different error code.
Should cost you in ball park of $250-$300.
Regards.
Russ.

Lightening strike....no power.


There will be a fuse in the input to the power supply which most probably has blown because of the power surge.In almost all cases if you replace this it will blow again straight away as a lightening strike can cause a lot a damage to other components. You will probably find there will be some other parts that have gone short circuited & this would need to be investigated.
