Question about Mitsubishi VS-5043 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Tv Powers up and immediately back off

My TV will power up and then click back off like someone hit the power switch. I can keep turning it off and on and eventually it will come on and stay on for anywhere from 5-25 minutes and then will click off again. When on, the picture and sound are fine.

Re: Tv Powers up and immediately back off

This model is equipped with a self-diagnosis feature to help with diagnosis of shutdown problems. To activate this turn the unit on let it shutdown then press the input and menu buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold them in for 5 seconds after 5 seconds the power LED on the front panel will blink a two digit sequence. This will be one set of blinks a short pause then another set of blinks, this will repeat 5 times. 1 - 2 = no error detected 2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current) 2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies) 2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection) 2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source) 1. Shutdown at power with self diagnosis error 2-2. Check for open fuses F9A04 and F9A05 part # 283P144080 on the +24 and -24 volt lines. If the fuses are open the convergence output circuit would be suspect. 2. Shutdown at power with self diagnosis error 2-1. At power on check for 12-volts DC at connector KH pin 8, if missing check IC9C51 part # 270P990010 and L9C52 part # 441D009020 on the Signal PCB

TV turns itself off after about 5 minutes (green light remains on). I can turn off the TV and turn it back on immediately, however, the TV turns itself back off after a few minutes. It started turning off...

Check and make sure your fans are working and there is sufficiant cooling to the back of the set. Sounds like it is overheating and going into protection mode.

The unit will not power on. It blinks twice then powers off. Each time I power it on, it blinks twice then powers off. No video, no sound.

B+ over current fault in the power supply circuit, probably a few bad resistors and some switching regulators. Call your local shop for immediate service, its a rear projection TV so it shouldn't cost too much to service this kind of fault. Here's a little trade secret for you, one good way of getting more years of use from your TV is by using a surge suppressor opposed to a surge protector. A good one will start at around $69.00 from BestBuy or Wallmart.
Here's a little basic knowledge on what a surge suppressor is and what it does : Click Here and here's how some will look Click Here.
After you get your TV serviced, be sure to use a good quality surge-suppressor to fully protect your TV from violent AC spikes. Using one will and years of life too your TV :-)

one solution to maybe solve the problem of it not staying powered would be to take the panel off the back and use a blow dryer in the lower left hand corner and heat it up. It worked to get our tv turned on.

No power, clicks and turns off immediately

I had the same problem with my RCA. When I opened it up to check it out, everything seemed fine, but on closer examination found that someone had spilled coke on the top of the tv, and it leaked down into the circuit board and shorted it out. A little windex and a hairdryer on the board straightened it out.

I have seen this symptom when the vertical output IC has cracked or burned out, and the set is shutting down to protect the CRT's. When you press the power button the computer clicks the main relay and the set powers up, but a fault is immediately detected and the computer shuts the relay off, giving that double click sound. The circuit should be repaired by someone with experience.
