    I have a 2001 Mitsubishi rear projection TV, VS-45609, that would shut off within seconds of turning it on. Several tries later, it would stay on; now it stays on when the power button is pushed, but the convergence of blue and red won't budge per the remote convergence protocol. I've tried converging the red/blue with the controls on the TV itself to no avail. Is this fixable?

    I was watching my 1996 Mitsubishi VS-5043 50" Projection TV with my girl friend and when she placed a call on her Sprint cell phone the TV cut off. I tried to turn it back on but it cut off again. I continued to push the power button on the TV but it kept cutting off, so I unplugged it for awhile and tried to reset it but it keeps cutting off everytime I push the power button. I can't get the TV to cut back on. Do you think the cell phone had anything to do with it? And what do you suggest I do to fix it?

    I inherited a VS-5043 and it recently began shutting off within seconds of powering on. I don't know if it is worth paying to fix or if I should just buy a new TV.

The VS5043 shuts down for many reasons. The most common are power supply issues. Bad caps, open resistors, shorted regulators, and missing voltages will cause the set to shutdown.
In my notesI have a location of components known to cause your problem( R5A03,L5A00,D5A21,Q5A04,Q5A03,C5A19,L902,IC900.IC700) All the parts listed are available. As I stated above there are many reasons for shutdown such as a bad flyback transformer that may not be available anymore. However, this type of failure needs to be properly diagnosed by a qualified technician. Good luck!

I too have the same issue with my 5043 (1996) Mitsubishi TV. TV repairman says it's not repairable due to there being no new parts available by manufacturer. If you find a source for your parts please let me know. Good luck

No power Mitsubishi Big Screen

Sounds like the power supply went bad. Repeated on/off pushing of the buttons causes the set to go into shut down. If a part is marginal this is when it'll go bad. Usually a bad power supply part and will need professional repair. Please rate!

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
