Question about Mitsubishi WS-48613 48" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Mitsubishi Power Problem -turns itself off.

I got this TV in June 2000 but didn't use it much.
Model VS45607 (it's a 150 pound unit--hard to move)
Wife bought it for about $1500.

Can't turn it on from the remote. When turned on from TV, the TV immediately turns itself off. (Click Click)

A month before this happened, the tuner worked only intermittently--some channel signals didn't show, some channels displayed on multiple channels.

I'm tech savvy; sent an email to Mitsubishi to see if a repair manual was available. Opened the back: Nothing obvious (blown components, etc. Nothing smells.)

A local repair company will come out to look for $135; if I do the repair, the $100 counts toward the labor. I'm wondering if it's even worth fixing.

Mitsubishi Projection TV Model # VS-50502

The power supply section is having trouble.
Common possibilities are:
- Convergences amps have failed overloading the supply
- High-voltage section (flyback transformer) has failed
(happens sooner or later, about 8 years typical))
- Power surge has popped the power input circuit.
(Fuse, rectifier diodes, turn-on relay etc)
- One of a hundred of electrolytic capacitors has failed short overloading the supply. They dry out with age, are cheap to replace, but hard to find which one it is.
- Or any of many other possibilities.

In short, you need a experianced tech to troubleshoot this.

Mitsubishi WS48511 TV will not power on completely.

have you checked the pico fuses on the bottom side of the PC board? They are small ceramic fuses soldered directly to the runners.They have been known to blow and your set will not power up. Hope this helps, if you need anything further let me know. Also sometimes the 1000uf caps don't show any signs of swelling but can still be bad.
