Question about Mitsubishi WS-55805 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Just plain dead

I've used the tv for years with no problem. Now it just will not turn on. The electric outlet has power, but the tv does nothing. No picture, no sound, no lights, not even a click or a blink when I try to turn it on, whether by the power button on the tv or on the remote. Thanks for any advice.

Went to turn on tv switched on plug nothing happening no lights on tv power going to

Either your electrical outlet went dead or the power supply in your television went dead. Verify operation of the outlet by plugging a light or other known-working appliance in and, if that is working, unplug your television for a minimum of one hour, plug it back in, and test. If it still does not operate, it will require further service.

My Pioneer Elite PRO-111FD just shut off on it's own, and now won't turn back on. No green or red indicator light... nothing. Any suggestions?

Check your power source (electrical outlet) and the power cable. If electrical outlet is ok, try using a different power cable (the cable that you plug on to the electrical outlet going to your TV set). If everything is ok but still no indicator light, call your technician there might be a problem with the TV power supply.

Check the outlet to be sure you have power to it. Then check both ends of the tv power cord to insure that they are actually plugged in. good luck.

on the back of the TV where the power cord plugs into the back of the tv there is a small black on/off switch- it's not as obvious as you would think.... but that was turned off. Not sure how that happened since the back of the Tv was never touched when it went dead- but I unplugged the cord from the back of the tv and from the outlet and reset that switch and it worked.

No power to tv

You say didn't do anything, Like did you hear a squealing sound or did you see led lights on front of panel or just dead nothing? If dead and nothing then look for fuse blown in power supply if not then there maybe a small sound coming out of set when you press power if so then the power supply is trying to start up then you will have to look elsewhere like horizontal or convergence or vertical areas.
