Question about Mitsubishi WS-48613 48" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Mitsubishi VS-50705 TV has error code 23, Horizontal Deflection won't turn on.

Ctf1800 told me to check the error code & it is 23=Horizontal deflection failure. What should I do now? Can I fix this myself easily? I don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on a technician. The Tv's only worth like $200 now. Please let me know if there's anything i can do!

Thank you!

Unfortunately, problems in the deflection circuit can involve expensive parts. This type of repair is not for the do it yourselfers. It requires proper test equipment and diagnostic experience. Look to spend at least $350 and up. Maybe Santa will bring you a new plasma for Christmas. Good luck

I believe it is going to be a major repair and I would hesitate to invest much money into it. I think the age of this set is older than 5 years. The VS model series were manufactures before the WS model series and they have been around for 8 years or so. Never the less, parts availability is getting tougher. If your pain thresh hold is 300.00 or 400.00
go for it. If not, check out new sets.
Hope this helps,

Mitsubishi 50111

Run the diagnostics.

With the TV power cord plugged in, press the 'INPUT and 'MENU' buttons at the same time -- use the buttons on the front of the TV, NOT the buttons on the remote; a diagnostic Error Code Operational Check will begin, utilizing the 'POWER ON' LED (the green 'POWER ON' indicator light).

There will be a pattern of two sets of flashes, with a pause in bewteen flashes; this sequence of flashes will be repeated a total of five times.

The Error Code designations are listed below:

Error Code Description
12 No eror has occurred.
21 X-Ray Protect circuit.
22 Short Protect circuit.
23 Horizontal Deflection failure.
24 Vertical Deflection failure.

I hope this information helps.

Vs-50607 turns off by itself it might come on after about 8hrs

if you hold menu and input on the front panel it will blink a code to tell you
where the error likely is. hold the buttons for 5 seconds and you'll get a 2
digit error, like 1 2 = no error..
“12” ... indicates no error has occured.
“21” ... X-Ray Protect circuit.
“22” ... Short Protect circuit.
“23” ... Horizontal Deflection failure.
“24” ... Vertical Deflection failure.

let me know what you find.. it will determine area of failure

Tv turns on then off

hold the menu and input buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds. the tv will blink an error code
Error Code Probable Cause
12 Normal Operation - No Error Detected
21 X-Ray Protect
22 Short Protect - likely convergence IC failure
23 Loss of Horizontal Deflection
24 Loss of Vertical Deflection

Fast Blink for 70 sec. After AC is applied = Normal - DM μPC is booting up
Fast Blink (doesn't stop) After AC is applied = TV μPC is running, but DM failed to boot up
Slow Blink Set is Off = Normal - Timer is set for Automatic Turn ON

Good Day, PCMcGee; To start try these: 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. Good Luck, big IRISH.

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

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
