Question about Mitsubishi VS-60703 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

No power on

I do not have any power on the TV, no light comes on. This was bought in 1998. Wonder what is the average life of this TV. I have checked the power point, it is connected to a power strip, everything else on the strip is working....need help!

I have a 1998 VS-60703, picture and sound went out, and do not come back on either through remote or tv button.

Re: No power on

Hey cmdolfan,

Seems like the picture tube on the TV decided to go on you.

But it seems like the power itself is shot.

Try doing a hard rest on the TV (a lot of models have it where you unplug it for 4 hours), and then even try just pluggin it straight into the wall rather then the strip just to make sure.

If this doesn't work, then there really doesn't seem to be a lot more you could possibly do since it isn't getting power what so ever.

I would suggest contacting a local repair service.

Tv keeps shutting off without warning

Hope Bob C does not mean computer_Bob who used to be a expert here.

To address your question:

If no error blink code exists (power light or other blinks a specific number of blinks) it likely is a issue in the power supply of the set which usually will give an error blink code of some type.

Common failure reasons include but not limited to:


Yes, dirt inside (dust to be kind) will trigger shutdown etc.

A lamp will usually before it fails give some indication like a dimmer picture but dirty fans and dust inside can also do this.

In our shop if it is dirty inside first thing is it goes out the door and gets a good dose of compressed air--usually looks like a dust storm.

Lamp life is on average 2,000 hours (average user it is 2 years) and generic lamps have a lesser life.

Ballast usually is suspect if several lamps have failed in a shorter period of time but can just fail.

These are my thoughts from working on this and similar sets--what have you tried so far?

When i power up the tv, it immediately shuts off

How old is the tv? Sounds like the bulb. Is there any kind of lamp light indicator blinking or on? Averager life of a bulb is a few years, but could very well be shortened. Also check any surge protectors you might have. Maybe you recently had a surge and it needs to be reset. Last but not least try recycling the power on the tv. Unplug for 10 seconds then plug back in. happens a lot with cable boxes, recievers, and tv's from time to time.

Sony KDF-46E2000 - Screen Goes Blank

You definitely have a bad lamp. Sony rates the lamp life at between 4000 and 8000 hours. There are 3 things that effect the lamp life, listed in order of importance:
1) number of times the lamp is turned on and off. Every time the lamp is first fired, it takes life off the lamp. Customers I see that turn the TV on in the morning, leave it on all day and then turn it off on the evening can get up to 12000 lamp hours
2) ventilation. Be sure you have at least 6 inches of open space all the way around the set and that the vents are clear of dust and debris.
3) power. If the power is interrupted when the set is on, there cannot be a proper cool down cycle. The fans will run after you turn the set off to properly cool it down, if the power is lost this cannot happen. If your power is unreliable, buy a small UPS to let the set finish a cool down cycle

Occasionally a lamp will faill before the average lamp time due to being defective. from your purchase date it sounds like you got about average lamp time. Be sure to purchase AN ORIGINAL SONY LAMP as a replacement, becuase the aftermarket lamps are bad news, Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!
