SOURCE: green blinking light

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 device 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)

SOURCE: green timer light blinking tv won't turn on

My thanks to your husband (and all who are involved in this stupid conflict) for his service.
You didn't mention whether there was a pattern to the blinking which in some sets can be decoded  into a specific problem. I'll assume it is a regular blink rate you have.
All modern sets have a standby state that allows them to respond to the remote when they are 'off.'  The power for the LED that's blinking comes from this 'always on' power supply and the fact that it is blinking probably (and unfortunately) means that either the main power supply has failed or possibly the lamp in some brands.
Because this can come from more than one place, it's not possible to determine which source it might be.  The owner's manual might give info under 'Troubleshooting' as to the source.
If you don't have the manual available, you can download one here:
Mitsubishi Manual 
If you find that it is the main power supply, this is likely on a separate board and may be user replaceable.
Pull the AC plug from the wall and let it sit for at least a couple of hours to allow certain components to loose any dangerous charge. Remove the lower panel from the set and look for a board with larger than average parts on it, particularly cylindrical objects (capacitors) and larger dark blocks (transformers). Look on that board for a part number for the board (not the components).
Locate the nearest Mitsubishi repair company and call to see if they repair failed boards or only sell new. Once you have the price for it (could be $90-$200 US), you can decide if you want to replace or repair it.
Replacing the board is probably not rocket science and have had several ladies do this on their own.       
If you find it is the lamp that has failed, this is also something you can do without great technical skills and the prices for these ranges from ~$125 - $200.

SOURCE: green light blinks constantly. reset doesn't fix it.

This set has a lot of problems but I have news for you that I recently discovered from a authorized Mitsubishi repair center---


Mitsubishi has had so many problems with this set that now they sell a complete Chassis replacement for this set for about 200 dollars--You will have to go to a authorized center---no more trying to fix individual boards in this set...if you are in doubt--Google the model number and you will see all the problems this set has had---

Contact Mitsubishi and I think the best thing you can do is get the Chassis replaced--


If you have more questions about what I am telling you let me know---I think Mitsubishi is trying to avoid the class action lawsuits that are in progress against them for this model.

REGARDS, SD TECH

SOURCE: TV won't turn on

If the led is blinking one time there is a problem in the 140 volt circuit. Most likely a shorted Horizontal Output Transistor or a bad flyback transformer.

I would recommend that you contact a local servicer in your area and see if they can come to your house and diagnose the problem and give you an esimate for the repair. This can be tricky to diagnose and the potential for electrical shock is very high. So I would be careful if you wish to repair it yourself.

I would guess that you should be able to get a servicer to your home and repair the set for somewhere between $350.00 - $450.00 depending on the parts that are needed and the area in which you live.

I hope that this helps you with this issue. If you have any further questions, please post and I will try to help you as much as I can.
Thanks for using FixYa

My stereo just quit on me there was bad weather but it was on one of those power surge cords it is a pioneer stereo fm-am digital synthesizer tuner


If it was plugged into a surge protector, check the surge protector warranty. There are A LOT of surge protectors that will cover damage to items plugged into them through their warranty system. I've had full home computers and TV's replaced by surge protector companies to avoid having a hit to homeowners insurance.

I recently purchased a Hitachi bread maker. We had a power surge and it stopped working. Is there a circuit breaker on this model?


Unlikely. This will need repair or replacement.
To avoid future issues , install a whole house surge protector on the main panel and use local surge protectors on expensive units.
Unplug the things not regularly used.

Can i connect juster speakers 675 to my dell laptop?


Plug the power transformer into the bottom jack on the back of the right-channel speaker. This is the speaker with the on/off knob on the front. 2 Plug the audio cable attached to the left-channel speaker into the audio jack on the back of the right-channel speaker. The jack is immediately above the jack for the power cord. 3 Plug the audio jack attached to the back of the right-channel speaker into the headphone jack on a laptop computer (usually located along the left edge), or to the audio output jack on the back of a desktop PC. 4 Plug the speaker transformer into a surge protector and the surge protector into a wall outlet. 5 Turn the on-off and volume control knob clockwise on the front of the right-channel Inspiron speaker to activate the stereo speakers and adjust the volume.

Hi,
you may have a bad Earth power 110 V AC cable connection which makes such hum / buzz even nothing connected..
Check the connections between components and make sure they are secure before proceeding to the next Step. Sometimes, loose connections can cause a hum.
  • Separate the audio cables from the power cables; electromagnetic interference from the power cables can cause stereo hum. Use cable ties to secure the audio cables away from the power cables.
  • Plug in a surge protector to the outlet, and then plug all the components into that surge protector
  • Connect a ground plug to the surge protector and then plug the ground plug into the main outlet. A ground plug is available at any hardware store, and turns a three prong connection into a two prong. Ground plugs help eliminate 60 cycle hum.
  • 5 Connect the ground wire from your turntable to the ground wire connection on the receiver. If this doesn't work, looking on the back there should be a grounding point,

    Unplug your receiver.. Split a wire and attach one of the splits to the receiver where you will see the text, "ground" or something similar. Attach the other end to something metal such as a pipe that goes into the ground. Secure with electrical tape. Plug in.
    connect the ground wire to a screw on the electrical outlet.

    Lets focus on the external portion of the TV set first (95 percent of all TV problems are related to things EXTERNAL To the tv itself) Check the physical CONNECTION of all cables by removing each wire bare or RCA and reinstalling it (Each power cable as well), once you have removed one cable, check it for fraying, and if it is already bare, splice a new fresh connection for it. 5. Check to make sure there are NO OTHER uneeded radios, system nearby. these systems, when powered on, will cause electromagnetic interference and prevent more than just severe tv interference SURGE PROTECTOR Surge protectors account for more than 75 percent of electric faults to stereo equipment. Lets start with your AC Wall outlet. It is standard in america that 220 Volts from out of these outlets. This implies that each device will be using 220 Volts (From within that grid zone). If anything including an alarm clock is plugged into any AC outlet socket in the vicinity of the stereo equipment/TV, it will cause electric outage, and prevent electronics from even turning on! Your TV needs dedicated electric power. If your TV is located in the living room then unplug everything else in the living room. Lets plug the TV set into a Dedicated socket. Check all light switches to ensure that power is on for that outlet. Check the TV cable for Fraying both on the ac wall end and where it plugs into the TV. Check all GFCI outlets to ensure that all red reset buttons are pushed in, check the circuit breakers for proper connection and they are turned on. Now, lets try the TV set without it connected to any cable services, vcr, dvd, stereo system, etc.

    I recently installed Windows 7 and my Boston BA745 speakers will not work. I'm looking for driver or other solutions.


    1) Try the portable player test. Unplug the speakers from the computer and plug them into the headphone output of a portable-type stereo product. This test should produce sound. If it does the problem is most likely in the soundcard, or in your internal volume settings. You should contact your computer's support group for further help in those areas.

    2) Is the green power light illuminated? If not, you could have one of two possible causes. The first and less serious issue is that the power supply is not outputting the correct voltage. You can test the power supply with a voltage meter or you can always take the power supply to any electronics store and have it checked there. If it is not outputting the correct voltage (12VAC), contact our parts department for a new one at (978) 538-5136.

    If the power supply is working properly, then your problem is most likely in the amplifier. In this case, we will need to fix your system here, and you can contact customer service at the above phone number to set this up.

    3) If the system is connected properly and you have a green subwoofer light, disconnect the power supply from the wall for 10 minutes. This is a common problem on overloaded surge protectors. To many devices on the same surge protector can limit available power. Putting your speaker system on its own circuit (or a more dedicated one) should eliminate this problem.

    4) Check the bass level on the back of your subwoofer, (or on your desktop control pod. For best subwoofer performance place the woofer on the floor along a wall or better still in a corner. This "corner loading" will increase bass output.

    Sony Bravia KLV-40U100M-screen is distorted, overlay or various vertical lines


    The resolution on this was to check the surge protector the television was plugged into. Once we unplugged and plugged into another surge protector, the screen went back to normal and the appearance was great. We believe this was due to one of the resistors within the surge protector may have become faulty.

    Protector flashing


    Protet mode is a special diagnostic mode that starts when a fault is detected.

    When in protection mode the unit is prevented from starting by protection circuit, so to prevent further damage.

    Check the speakers and speakers wiring, a contact in speaker wires, or faulty speakers can send the unit in protection.

    Try unplugging power cable for one hour or so. then connect cable back and see if you get rid of protect state. Sometimes accumulation of electrostatic charges inside circuit capacitors can kick in protect mode. In that case unplugging the unit from main for some times can get rid of electrostatic charges, and reset circuits by draining power completely.
    If that was the problem, you will not get Protect when plugging back power cable.

    If you do all the above and still get Protect, then there is a real fault.

    In that case the unit may be disassembled and tested to find the fault.

    If that is the case I suggest contacting the manufacturer at the number listed on the owners manual, or asking a quote on repair to a local technician.
