Question about Mitsubishi WS-55807 TV

Screen went dark

I have a 57" Diamond Series Mitzubishi DLP. My screen is black / dark. When I turn it on I can hear audio but get no pic. It stays on with a green light for a minute and then turns itself off and goes to a red light.

Did this unit fail after a power outage or passing storm? If so could be lost of component in the low voltage power supply circuit or degausing relay circuit. I would strongly suggest you seek help from a qualified repair center. Don not attempt to repair dangerous.

Looks like a black thumbprint blocking 1/3 of the screen. No LED's lit on front of TV. Started as black dots, and filled in almost completely. Initial lamp lasted 2 years. The replacement lamp lasted 3...

It looks like DLP chip is failing. It is installed on DMD board that in turn belongs to optical engine. Issue should get progressively worse. If you look at screen up close - you see that "tumbprint" consist of little small dark-gray squares, some of them flickering.
Cheapest solution - to replace DLP chip. instead of replacing whole optical engine.
This repair have to be confirmed (by running test patterns in service mode first) and done by professional.
Repair could cost aroung $400.
During procedure I would recommend to turn ceiling fans and other air blowing devices off. Single little dust speckle landing on the chip surface will ruing all effort and same amount of labor have to be applied yet again just to get rid of it (been there, done it).
Good luck.

Tv is black but i can still hear?

Check your wire connections on the back of the tv to make sure nothing had caused them to get unplugged OR been chewed through. If it doesn't fix the problem then try replacing your connections.

My Samsung DLP hln567w tv has NO picture on all

If the Lamp ignites and stays lit, but screen is completely black, not even the on screen display, then it is likely a bad DMD board.

If the lamp ignites and then turns off after a couple seconds then it is likely the color wheel is seized.

If the lamp never fires, but the TV clicks a bunch of times, then it could be a bad Ballast or the Lamp itself.

Tv stays black

Do you have audio and if so can you change channels to hear other programs? If so have a bad vertical IC. Have a tech turn up the screen control to see a white horizontal line. By your question I would say this will correct the problem.

DELL 42 inch Plasma TV

I have a 42" LG LCD TV and just experienced this today. Watching cable, then the screen went to black, but audio continued. I pressed the guide button on my remote and pic came on with my guide menu. But then went to black again 10sec later and has remained that way for nearly an hour. Tried switching off both cable box and TV, disconnecting and reconnecting cables, but no luck. Finally unplugged mains, waited a minute, then turned back on. Everything seems normal now after the reboot. Phew.

You have a vert sweep problem and unless you know how to trouble shoot this cuircit bring it to a pro. I found out mostly in these sets that the vert output IC is bad.. Also sometimes the b+ filter cap off the fly is leaky and made the IC to fail. Another thing is Im surprised to hear you got a pic with the vert failure and a bright line in the pic!! This could be a big problem when the sets fixed so dont run it too long like this. It could burn a line all the way across the screen and you will see a dark faint line in your pic because of this. BE CAREFULL!!
