Question about Mitsubishi WS-55908 55" Rear Projection Television

Mitsubishi 55908 powers on then powers off

TV powers up for about 2 - 3 seconds then powers off.  Problem code is 22.  From my other findings, this is a short.  I believe I can fix it myself with a little direction.  Can someone talk me through it?

Re: Mitsubishi 55908 powers on then powers off

A short causes an open fuse. In this case, one or two open

pico fuses in power supply. Usually,the short is one of the

convergence IC's== STK unit(s) mounted to large heat sink on

middle PCB.Check it out and let me know if you need more help........T.

My T.V. Will power on for a couple seconds then immediately turn off! Please help!

Unplug the unit from the outlet for at least 1 hour and check if the symptoms persists. If yes, check if the unit can give an error code by following the steps below.
- Power on the unit and wait until the initialization takes place.
- Press the front panel "Input" and "Menu" buttons at the same time and hold it for 5 seconds, it will activate the error code mode. LED flashes a two digit error code. Example, if the error code is "22" the LED will flashes two times pause and then flashes two times and will repeat the error code for 5 times.
"12" means no error has occured.
Please let me know what will be the result to assist you further.

The Color On My Mitsubishi Rear Projection Tv model- WS-55908 looks to be off, picture looks blue and Yellow.

its sounds like the convergence on your TV needs to be adjusted. (this adjusts all of the color guns in the back of the tv to line them up again, when they get off, you start to get yellow blue or red halos around objects in the picture. In the setup menu on your TV under picture or Display there will be an item that says "convergence" follow the instructions in there so all the crosses on the screen no longer have colored halos anymore.

TV is turn on for 3 seconds and then shuts off.

I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV.

Here was the problem. My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired of course) and found four bulged capacitors. Many electronics companies were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 years instead of 10-20. The capacitors fail prematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in all sorts of devices and cause a wide range of failure problems.

Here are some options for you.

1. Have it fixed by a professional

2. Open your TV and find PSB. Check for faulty caps. If you find some (bulged or leaking) bad caps replace the entire board.

3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill.

Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourself it will save you hundreds.

I have a tip/tutorial on this site that may also help. It gives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is your board you are in luck. It's called: Fixing the Philips Turns/shuts off on its own problem.

Hope this helps and Good luck.

Hi, I have a WS-55908 Mitsubishi tv, I turn it on

Do the self check this set has--when you turn on and power light comes on and then goes off:

On the front of the set press both the Menu and Input (device) buttons at the same time and hold them for at least 5 seconds and then release both buttons.

The power light will then blink a two digit error code--the most common is 2 blinks, a pause and 2 blinks---it will repeat it several times.

Let me know what you find and I will tell you what it means---based on your description I bet you get 2,2 error code.

If this has helped you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

Code 22 indicates that your set is in shut down due to what is called Short Protect. The most likely cause is the Converge Ic's drawing too much current and opening one or 2 fuses. Normal repair cost varies by area and servicer. Expect 250 to 350 plus the service call. I normally do this on site.
