You've mad the right decison; fuses can fail due to metal fatigue as they flex a little each time current flows through them of ceases but a 2nd fuse is unlikely to fail instantly. This indicates a true problem.
If you found the fuse, it was probably located on the main power supply board and this item has likely failed.
Look for an assembly number on that board and call a Mitsu service company and inquire about repair or replacement cost. Either one can range from ~$75 to $150.
It would be interesting to know if the fuse blew as soon as the unit was plugged back in or only when you tried to turn it on with the remote or power button on the set.
If it blew only by plugging it in, that power board is the culprit. If it blew as you tried to turn it on, it could be a failed 2nd power supply for the CRTs that is often located separate from the main supply where the fuse was.
About any E-tech could ferret out the which of the two is at fault so you might consider having a pro do the repair but if you know the failure sequence you might choose to gamble on making the decision yourself.
Good luck-

Can your power cord be bad on a panasonic plasma tv to cause it to turn off and not start again and blow a fuse on pb


The main power regulator board will have some shorted component/s on it. Normally, these boards to plasma TVs are irreparable. Card base replacement should be done.

I have a vs-60609 60"


Sounds like a Picture in Picture screen popping up, but if you do not have a signal from another tuner, it will be blank.

Try hitting the PIP button on your remote to see if it turns it off and on.
Plus go into the tv menu and find the PIP settings.

Left convergence on mitsu vs-60609


Convergence IC's inside of your TV are nearing end of the life. If during adjustments that you made Red and Blue was moving in all directions (left, right, down, up) than resistors and fuses still probably OK. IC's (part number will start with "STK" and they attached to huge aluminum radiators) have to be replaced and fresh heat sink compound have to be applied.
After that convergence adjustments should not be a problem. And color will stay together for another several years.

Mitsu. 60-inch VS-60609 Green Light goes out..tv goes off.


You are dealing with bad solder connections. The solution is to pull the board, put it under a magnifying glass and resolder all suspicious connections. before going too far with pulling the chassis, look over all the boards near the egde under the tubes. Be sure there is no liquid present, if there is give it up the set is toast. If not then continue on and place piece of plastic draped over the front of the left and middle boards to about 5 inches in towards the center just before putting the back on the set.

"ant A" and "ant B" inputs go black when the tv is first turned on.


Try opening that "Ant A, B" device and apply some fresh solder to all the components inside. Also you can try to by-pass that device using the connector below. One end connects the cable in and the other end connects to the circuitry inside the TV.
