Question about Mitsubishi WS-55809 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

How can I diagnose the power supply unit in this set? I suspect it is the cause of my problem. Error code 23, screen shrank in and out a couple times and turned off a couple times, now wont come back on. clicks on and turns off after 3 secs. Green and blue guns glow orange at bottom. Red gun arcs in the tube and glows inconsistantly red... Would this likely be the PSU or maybe the flyback? Thanks!

Hello hellian82,

The problem is the arcing red tube, it can be replaced or rejuvenated by qualified TV technician. The arcing is the result of a spark gap being formed in the picture tube resulting in a short between the HV anode of the tube and ground. Replacement of the tube is preferred, but the tube can be rejuvenated using a CRT rejuvenator.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

There could be several things that can cause this. Could be a bad CCFL bulb, inverter, power supply problem, main board, or T-con. You will need to have the set diagnosed to track down the problem.

My screen doesnt light up & the tv shuts power off


This is a fault solution which can be checked and corrected by you assuming that there is no component failure. There is a high possibility that the components over a period of heating and cooling, tend to bring on a problem of dry soldering. So my advice is to check the set for some loose joints that have played on to give you these erratic shut downs or poor performance.

The best way to check for loose connections is to tap lightly when the set is powered on , If there is change while tapping then it seems that there are DRY solder joints. Remove main plug, the covers - with caution of high voltage, check for dry joints, use a good soldering iron to solder all suspected points.

Sometimes the fault occurs when the set warms up, if so you can simulate the heat using a hair dryer on the suspected areas, try with the power supply, distribution, Processor controller, driver controllers on the A/V related sections. Also the use a FREEZE-IT spray can simulate the components to cool and show up the fault.

Based on the above method you must be able to locate the area of fault and solder the sections. Sometimes large IC's- ones with more pins- tend to have drying in some pins and so cause faults related to the IC's protocol. Have a rough idea of looking into the areas to reduce the time of probing.

Check for tips to look into the SMPS unit with some of my tips:

Screen displays "overload, switch off power." Have


Hi Laurel,

Overload in other unit protect error code. This will appear once the processor sense a malfunction either on the power supply or on the load (high chance is the output IC). DIY steps are as follow to determine where the fault is : 1. Allow the unit to cool down for an hour. Give proper ventilation and keep away all obstruction from the vent to have a sufficient air flow. 2. Disconnect one at a time the speakers, inputs, from the unit while powering it on.

If the unit back to normal again then you've confirmed that any of the above caused the error code. If #1 is the caused, you have to check also the exhaust fan(if installed), clean it as much as possible, replaced if faulty. If #2 is the caused (speaker) check the wire and speakers for short, (input) check the RCA cord for short or replaced if necessary.

If the above simple fix didn't cure the error code, you can try the next steps if you are an electronicsenthusiast. Now after removing the cover, you have to concentrate first on the power supply board. Look for bulged electrolytic capacitor. Leaky capacitor will affect the regulation of the supply and will trigger the error code. Look for dry joints. Check it also in the pre-amplifier stage, main output board where a big heat sink is located. Next disable the output amplifier stage by disconnecting the supply. If the unit come out, make some re-soldering on the board, spot the cold solder and dry joints and then try to connect again. If the error code appear again, high chance that your output IC is faulty but still to be confirmed. Using the disoldering pump and soldering iron pull-out the output IC from the board then try the unit. If the error code disappear, confirmed that your IC is faulty.After trying the abovesteps-by-steps guide and still the symptoms persist this is the time for you to send it to repair shop. Remember that your unit has a lot of parts and only some basic steps have done, leave the expert to troubleshoot the entire unit.

Hope I helped you.

Have a nice day!

Thanks for using Fixya.

The screen blacks out for a couple seconds numerous time a day


There are two boards that cause problems, the power supply board has bad capacitors "sometimes bulge at top" the second issue is the inverter board it energizes the back lights behind the LCD display, it to has bad capacitors that cause all kinds of symptoms.

We cleaned my kenmore elite oven. now it won't work. when i try and turn it on i get an F23 error. do you know how to get the oven/stove working again?


Error code F 23 indicates the control detected a problem with the communication link or can be generated as a result of irregularities in the power supply or usage.


  • The error code F23 can often be resolved by removing power to the appliance for a minute and then restoring the power.
  • By unplugging the appliance it allows the control to receive a fresh supply of power. This in turn will clear the controls memory of any irregularities it may have received from the power supply. Once refreshed the error should no longer be displayed.
  1. Unplug the unit or turn the circuit breaker off for 60 seconds.
  2. Restore the power to the appliance by plugging it back in or turning the circuit breaker back on.
  3. Check to see if the error code is still displayed on the range.
  4. Run the appliance in the cycle that initially caused the error or attempt to turn on broiler.
If the error code is displayed, then service is needed. The unit should be inspected by a qualified appliance repair technician.

Menu won't show on screen.


Disconnect all devices from the power supply EXCEPT the motherboard
Remove any extra cards including video etc.(plug monitor into the onboard)

If you hear any beeps these can indictate where the fault is.
either of these sites below will help you further with that

Beep codes Pc

More beep codes

Power up the pc and see if the fans are working.
If not then double check the power connections to the board.

If you still have no fans it is time to suspect the power supply as the probable cause.

If the fans worked then you should have gotten a display which told you there was an error and offering you a chance to go into the BIOS. ignore it and shut down the PC.

Now connect one drive only and boot again.

Repeat that until you identify the component that is giving you a problem.

Once you find the problem then remove or disconnect and carry on with the rest to see if another component might also cause a problem

If there is only one problem device then you may want to investigate that device further, Unless you don't mind replacing it
