Question about Mitsubishi WS-55909 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Will not turn on completly

When turning on the television, the green light comes on and you hear the click. After two seconds it clicks off. No picture or sound ever happens.
Also for the past few weeks prior to it not coming on, the picture would be distorted. It would be somewhat curved with double images in some areas along the edges. Every now and then if you tapped the TV, it would straighten out. Now it won't come on at all, just the ckick on then back off after the two seconds.

Re: Will not turn on completly

If it is like mine- it's the power board. It is no longer available so you have to buy a new TV

My mitsubishi 55" will not turn on... when I press


The most common failure for this model is the deflection board assembly or commonly known as a Large Signal board. The unit is going into shutdown, mode because no high voltage. Unless you are strongly electronically inclined I suggest you try to replace the deflection board.

Check for bad solder on convergence module. May have bad stk's. Do not neglect looking for bad solder on dsignal and defl boards. Mitsubishi is very prone to bad solder.

When turning on the TV the green light on the front does not come on. You hear a click and then about ten seconds later you hear another click but the tv never comes on.

What light do you get, green blinking, red blinking, yellow steady light or yellow blinking light. The led lights will tell what is wrong with your tv.

Have you tried holding the input and menu buttons on the set both in together for 8 seconds to see if it will blink a 2 digit error code? Try that and let me know what code if any flashes from the Led.
