Question about Mitsubishi VS-5043/44 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Sanyo HD Tv

We had no picture or sound. When we turned it on. All we had was a red dot.
After about 20 minutes, we now have a picture. Our TV is only about 4-5 years old. Do you think it is on our way out, trouble w/ the cable or anything else?
Sounds like a silly question but that red dot looked weired.
Thank you for any feedback you can give.

Sanyo makes excellent TV`s. You may have weak electeolytic capacitors in the power suppy causing the delay in starting up. It might be worth it to have a shop look it for you

TV picture goes out after 10 minutes of viewing with popping sound

It can be a couple things. Something bad on the power board. Or the vertical output circuit. How long ago did you purchase the television. Your best course of action is to have it serviced.
If you need any information or other assistance let me know.

RCA DLP TV with a red dot in the middle of the screen

Sounds like the color wheel stopped and re-started. It may continue to function for a while, but could fail at any time.

I've also seen on rare occasion, a defect in a lamp produce uneven color rendition, but its far more likely that the culprit is the color wheel.
