Question about Mitsubishi WS-48613 48" Rear Projection Television

Mitsubishi VS-50705, 50 inch Rear projection TV won't turn on!

Hi, the tv was working fine & it has barely been used since '99. I haven't used it in forever. I plugged it into the wall outlet & it won't turn on. The green light in front just clicks on & off 1 second. The TV won't turn on though. The power button on the TV does the same. Is it because I don't have the TV Cable plugged in? I doubt that. What happened? I don't know what to do?!! Please help me. Is there a reset button or something??

Most of the time the convergance ic go bad:
but try this:
The 3 flashes of the led when you plug the unit in is the
microprocessor initializing.

This unit has an error code diagnostics.

On the front panel of the unit press and hold the INPUT and MENU
buttons at the same time and hold them down for about 5 or 6 seconds.
The unit should activate it's error code mode.

The led will flash count the number of flashes. It will then pause for
1/2 or 1 second. The led will flash again count the number of flashes.
The unit will repeate this for about 5 or 6 times.

You now have the two digit error code. The first time the led flashed
is the first number of the error code, the next time the led flashed is
the last number of the error code.

12 ----------- indicates no error
21 ------------- X-Ray Protect circuit
22 ------------ Short Protect circuit
23 ------------- Horizontal Deflection failure
24 ------------- Vertical Deflection failure

Most units give a error code "22" short protect circuit. If so check:


If Q5A00 check bad there are other parts that have to be checked or

If you are able to do above call a tech to service the unit

Got a Mitsubishi vs-8070, everything works fine then the screen turns off after about 15 minutes sound still works fine. Help.

Does this unit have a projection bulb in the back end of the set? Just based on my experience with a friend's 65 inch rear projection TV, there might be an indicator light on the front panel that may blink if the rear projection bulb is failing. If there is a failing bulb it could account for the screen going black with everything else just fine, after the bulb gets heated up in 15 minutes.

Sylvania TV - volumn is so low we must turn it all the way up and even then can barely hear on some stations. We have dish tv.

The Dish receiver may have a volume function that is causing the problem. Use the Dish remote to increase the volume and see what happens.

Mitsubishi vs-55707 or vs-50707????? bouncing horizontal lines weird color

If the picture looks like a 3D then you have a convergence failure.
I would suggest to visually inspect the STK Ics for dry or crystallized solder joints.

You would have to completely take the Mirror out or Mylar backing and being careful not to damage anything, trying to move and reassemble when you get at the new location.
