Re: television

Sounds like its going into auto protect shutdown. Try holding the imputand menu bottons in together for 5 seconds and see if the green light blinks out a series of blinks. If so notice what they are, should be a 2 digit code if its going into shut down. If not its a power supply issue. Also you can look the boards over for evidence of CRT fluid leaking on the boards, I have seen this happen alot to the VS models it causes corrosion of the components and you will experience no start up condition like the one your describing.

My 10 year old 55 inch Mitsubishi rear projection shuts off.

The main board/switch is worn to the point it will not work anymore after a while, I been in the business for years, These are wonderful TV's, yes there are replacement parts but a quick fix your looking for here will be unsuccessful this is the reason I am providing my advice and take a chance on the rating your going to give me. Try look for people that is saling parts for these TV's.
