Question about Mitsubishi VS-55707 TV

1 Answer

Power Problems The power to the TV will click on and then click right back off. I never get a picture as this seems to happen within one second. The green light comes on for the timer when the power clicks on but within one second it shuts back down. I have unplugged the harness from the power button to the computer board and reconnected. No such luck. Any other steps?

Try leaving it unplugged overnight. It is possible it needs to discharge. If that doesn't work, I'd say you either have a bad switch, or a bad power supply. Hopefully the switch, because that's much easier to fix. Can you bridge the switch connectors with a wire? If it doesn't come on and stay on when you do that, it's a power supply issue (and not nearly as simple to fix).

    Just find the contact on either side of the switch and touch a wire to both of them (make sure you only touch the wire where it's insulated).

If it is not a bad soldering joint somewhere, it could be the mode switch. They can sometimes be cleaned with Servisol Video 40, but you might have to replace it.

Picture goes out right after turning on, have to

My 3 year old Sharp LC-40C32U would start up fine but within a minute would go dark (audio continued fine). For a while I could turn the set off and on again and it would be fine, but over time this became less effective. My solution, which has worked for a week now, was to a) unplug the set's power cord; b) after 3 minutes plug it back in and turn the set on; c) on the remote hit MENU and slide over to SETUP (3 clicks to the right if the screen is dark) and one up to RESET; d) hit ENTER and follow the prompts. This puts the set in it's factory configuration so you will have to rescan for channels. Worked for me.

TV clicks off, sound comed back on but no picture

I had the same problem. I replaced 14 capacitors on the Power Supply board. I used Panasonic series FC from DigiKey. If you see any capacitors that are swollen or have any substance oozing out for sure replace them. My set had lots of the brands that are known to have problems so I replaced all of them even though I could see no obvious swelling etc. Make sure you carefully label the connectors etc when you disassemble the unit.

Usually what I find in those sets with that symptom is that the solder joints have cracked on the convergence output IC. When this happens you may see the colors no longer lining up on the screen, and slapping the side might temporarily straighten it out again. After a while the convergence IC will short out inside, which overloads the convergence power supply, possibly shorting a diode and/or burning the resistors. The computer senses that the power supply is not working right and shuts the set back off. When I make a housecall for a set like that I charge $150, but some shops charge up to $400, so ask around.
