Mitsubishi vs-5041 picture intermittently goes off

My big screen's picture will be normal, then some lines will appear horizontal in random sequence for a second or so then picture goes off on all inputs. It may reappear for minutes, hours,???. The dvd input will light up blue. the picture may work for hours or days, but becoming worse at going off. I have a masters electrician license, but I am not a tv repairman. Can anyone help?

Re: Mitsubishi vs-5041 picture intermittently goes off

My guess is convergance ic but to troubleshoot it the best soultion might be to get a can of freeze and spay it on the IC while the problem is happening and or tap the board/ic's to see if you have a loose connection,

Rainbow line will come across screen and then goes blank. This is an intermittent problem. Normally if I turn it off and back on, it works. Now it does not.

try resoldering the vertical output IC, the IC runs at a hot temperature and this can cause the Pins to have cracked solder.

We had a blue cone on the screen. We have adjusted the sharpness, contrast, and cross hairs. The cone has almost completely disappeared, but we still have blue shadows. Could this mean a blown color tube?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

It may cure the problem but I would suspect the 9 Volt source

This should resolve your TV"s condition.

Mitsubishi VS-45607 picture goes out intermittently

This model is equipped with a self-diagnosis feature to help with diagnosis of shutdown problems. To activate this turn the unit on let it shutdown then press the input/device and menu buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold them in for 5 seconds after 5 seconds the power LED on the front panel will blink a two digit sequence. This will be one set of blinks a short pause then another set of blinks, this will repeat 5 times. 1 - 2 = no error detected 2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current) 2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies) 2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection) 2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source) 1. MAY BE INTERMITTENT, SELF-DIAGNOSIS ERROR 23 OR 24. CHECK SOLDER CONNECTIONS AT CONNECTOR "DY" ON THE YOKES. 2. SHUTDOWN AT POWER WITH SELF-DIAGNOSIS ERROR 23 OR 24. CHECK C411 2200 UFD 35 V AND C412 10 UFD 50 V, BOTH LOCATED ON THE MAIN PCB.

Mitsubishi VS-5041 (TV turns on but no pic or sound)

Your problem is one and or 2 differant problems. The power regulator could have went bad because of the convergence IC have shorted. Seen this a thousand(easy that!)Times. All parts in this set are soldered in and are not user serviceable. look in your owners manual or call 800-332-2119 to get an authorized servicer to come and look at your problem . I wish i could tell you what to replace but theres the Extreme Hi voltage inside these sets even when they are not plugged in .. Good Luck
