If the code is two blinks short pause two blinks long pause then repeats then over 95% of the time it's because the convergence output IC's need to be replaced as they are drawing too much current. A 2-2 code means overcurrent shutdown.

    The microprocessor in the set is detecting too much current draw. As I said most of the time it is because of bad convergence output IC's. They need to be replaced. Depending on where you live the average repair by a reputable shop runs between $200 and $300.

Push power button and it stays on for a couple seconds and then shuts back off. No picture comes on. Thank you Jeanette


To determine what your problem is:

UNPLUG TV ANDTHEN PLUG BACK IN---TURNON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ON FOR A MOMENT ANDGOES OFF.

PRESS AND HOLD "device" and "menu"buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release both together.


Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem


******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protectthe Convergence IC or IC's is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergenceIC and shut down.


SET WILL REPEAT BLINK ERROR CODE UP TO 5 TIMES ANDTHEN TO GET IT TO REPEAT MORE YOUHAVE TO UNPLUG SET AND TRY TO TURN ON AGAIN.


IF IT IS 2 AND THEN 2---USUALLY
CONVERGENCE CIRCUIT PROBLEM

let me know what you find--hope that you find 2 blinks, a pause and twoblinks--this is the most common and easiest to fix.

Tip

Mitusbishi shuts off instantly...


Most of the Mitsubishi rear projection sets made from about 2000 through 2006 have a self diagnostic check feature. It will indicate if there is a error or not and point you in the direction of your trouble.

Based on the error code I or others can tell you more based on the error code and the EXACT model number of the set.

Here is what you do if it turns on for a few seconds and then the power light goes off.

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} UNPLUG TV AND THEN PLUG BACK IN---TURN ON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ON FOR A MOMENT AND GOES OFF.

PRESS AND HOLD “Menu and Input"(or device) buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release both together.

Mitzubishi projection tv power shut down and won't power back up. green light comes on for a second then it shuts down immeditately


MOST Mitsubishi sets have a self check feature:

When power light goes off: On the front of the set press and hold MENU and INPUT (device) BOTH FOR 5 SECONDS OR LONGER AND RELEASE.

POWER light should blink a two digit code: for example:
2 blinks, a pause and 2 blinks----it will repeat the error code several times.

2,2 is the most common and the least expensive to fix.

LET ME KNOW EXACT MODEL NUMBER and the blink code and I will tell you what it means and if 2,2 how to fix it.

How many blinks is it doing? It has a built in self diagnosis code that it will blink. Pause a second then blink again. Count the blinks then let me know.
