Re: Wont Turn on

I had the same problem with the same model. I have a friend who knows someone with a repair shop. He has access to trouble shooting programs. The search came up with three possibilities, Q551 which is the H.O.T., D503 which is a diode attached to the shield around your flyback and C509 which is a capacitor right in front of D503. Hope this helps you and if it does could you let me know.

My ws 5531 mitsubishi wont turn on I had no luck on resetting it whats the next step to turn it on

If the green light (power) comes on for a few seconds and goes off do the self check this set has.

At that time press and hold both the menu and input buttons (ON THE FRONT OF THE SET--NOT THE REMOTE) for at least 5 seconds and release both buttons.

Power light on the set will blink a 2 digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks a pause and repeat it several times.

If you have unplugged the set it clears the error buffer and you will get 1,2 error code---try if that to unplug and turn set on and when if fails repeat the check.

2,2, is most common and the easiest to fix.

Let me know by pressing the "make a comment button" here what error code is found and I will assist you.

Decoding the number of beeps may be possible with the owner's guide but this type of problem is normally due to a failed power supply.
These are often mounted on separate boards located in the bottom of your set and can be identified by the much larger parts you see on the board and possibly its relationship to the AC cord coming in. While these can be repaired, the cost of that will approach the cost of a new assembly.
Unfortunately, modern, more energy-efficient power supplies have some critical components that if bought cheap, don't last very long and frankly, 5 years isn't bad, I read of many dead within the first year.

Sony KDP-65S550 red light keeps blinking

The STANDBY light is flashing on the television and there is no picture or sound. Solution
sp.gif sp.gif The STANDBY light will flash if an issue is detected within the television. This can sometimes be resolved by simply following the steps below to reset the television.
  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.
If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required. Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.

Sony - Projector TV won't turn

Sony TV;s will give a service code, count the blinks, eg; 2-6, light will blink X amount of times, hesitate & blink again so many times. Count and report back but, I would recomend to unplug the TV's power cord, to reset the TV's system. Unplug for at least 3 minutes. I hope this was helpful.

Sony LCD television will not power on.

I get 5 blinking red lights for about a minute or so before it powers back down. The Sony TV has a specific light that i presume is supposed to light up when the bulb is out. I'm unsure if this is what it is.
no picture, no sound. tries to boot with green light blinking a few times. then goes to red blinking light, six in all, then waits a few moments, then another 6 blinking red light.
Bulb was already replaced several months ago but we do have the TV on for long periods of time.

Tv won't turn on, power led just flashes

I have the same problem. After about 2 seconds the system status light blinks red and the system needs to be reset. The only way to turn the system on is to unplug from power for 5 minutes and then plug back in, wait for light to stop blinking and then turn on. I have cleaned the filter on the left side. The model is Mitsubishi WD-62725. any ideas?
