Question about Mitsubishi VS-50603 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Disassembling Mitsubishi VS50603

I want to take all the internal components out of my Mitsubishi VS-50603, but I heard there is a potential for electrocution, as there is a part in the TV that holds a charge even when not plugged in. Was wondering if this is true or not?

Yes, it is possible!
Your set has three picture tubes, also known as CRT's, when the set is on there is aprox 30,000 volts going to the CRT's usually on large red wires that come from a common point. The CRT's can store a charge, the manufactures do put some circuits in that should drain that voltage away but if the set had a problem it may not happen.
Also, the CRT's are sealed in a vacume so if they are hit the wrong way can implode, all the glass gets sucked in toward the middle then flys outward. Another concern is inside the CRTs is a phospher coating, not good for you.

Mitsubishi VS-50603 50 in. Rear Projection can i replace the mirror myself


First of all you need to check with the nearest service dealership for the availability of the mirror and the cost of the unit. Normally the cost from such dealerships will include to an extend the replacement cost and so it will be wise to have it done in the first case than to set it up and watch a distorted image if the aligment is not proper as the fall could also have shifted the alignment.

I have a Mitsubishi VS-50603 that will not turn on.


Good Day, jessayala;
It sounds like you may have Ethylene Glycol on the boards, leakage from the TV's CRT's. The Glycol is a fluid that help's the tube cool. If you are not handy, very, very handy, I would call an Authorized Service Center to come out and give you an estimate before the repair is performed.

Good Luck, big IRISH......PS..... If can handle your self ..... come back here.

Mitsubishi 50" Projection TV (Model VS-50603) Has sound but no picture


MJBNATL:

I reluctantly scheduled a technician to come out next week and take a look at my set. I was going to pay, at minimum, $65 for the service visit. I was then blessed with the intutition to do a bit more research regarding the PIP box being stuck on my television and other input functions (Inputs 1,2, and DVD) being unavailable.

I stumbled across a post on the internet that mentioned that the VS50603 can reset certain error conditions by pressing and holding the Input and Menu buttons (simulatneously) on the front panel on the TV while it is off. At some point after initiating this internal reset the LED light should starting flashing at defined intervals. The number of flashes correlate to a particular error code. Please go to the Mitsubishi website and download the owners manual (VS50609 in my case, couldn't locate VS50603) to lookup what the various error codes mean.

It seemed to me that that the LED flashing did not start immediately after pressing the Input and Menu buttons. In fact, I awoke the next morning to find the TV off but the LED flashing 10 times, pausing briefly, then flashing 10 times again. The sequence of the flashes mean something. Here again, consult your owner's guide for specifics.

Long story short, after awaking to find the LED flashing, I then turned the TV on and voila-my big screen was back minus that pesky PIP box prominently displayed.

I hope this helps someone like it helped me!! Truly a Blessing for sure.
