Re: ws-5511 Mitsubishi

On these models we have found that a switch is sticking on the control panel not allowing the set to operate properly.
Disconnect the control panel.
You will be able to use the remote on it.
To find the plugs for the control panel:
Remove the speaker grill and front panel, then follow the wire to the connection.

Remember to unplug the set before putting your hands inside of it.

shutdown is happening= If set has been unplugged plug it back in and turn set on--when green power light goes off in a few seconds:

On front of set (not the remote) press and hold both the Menu and Input (Device) buttons at same time and hold for at least 5 seconds---then release both.

Power light will blink an error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks pause and repeat it for a total of 5 times.

Let me know what error code is and I will tell you what it means.

No picture but have on cable disconnectd cable

There is a system reset button on the front panel of your TV. You have to reset it. Resetting will bring all the settings to factory defaults. There is a small hole on the front panel. The reset button is behind this hole. To reset do the folloing:-

If the TV doesn't respond to either the remote control or the front panel controls or will not power off, press the SYSTEM RESET button on the front panel with a pointed item such as the point of a ball point pen or end tip of a paperclip.
The TV will turn off and the green led will flash quickly for about one minute. When the green led stops flashing, you may turn on the TV again. The changes you made while the TV was most recently on, before you used the SYSTEM RESET button may lost, however, the changes you made previously are not lost. Only those changes since
power On may be lost when the system reset button is pressed. All other settings are retained.

On / off switch not working on remote

If the manual button on the set works the problem is almost certain to be with the remote---These sets do have a keyboard lockout for the controls on the front of the set but it will not affect the remote---it is there so children can be prevented from playing with front buttons.

I have fixed a lot of remotes---usually what you will find is if a single or a few buttons either do not work at all OR you have to press very hard to get them to work----something got spilled on the front of the remote--it does not take very much.

The way this works is ALL the little buttons on the front of the remote are really on mat made of latex etc---on the bottom of the mat are round black coated tabs----the mat lays flat on a circuit board and the coated tabs touch matching black points on the board.

Liquid (soda, coffee etc) gets in between the mat and the circuit board and no contact occurs.

Most of these remotes wholesale for about 40 dollars but you may find one on EBAY for less.

I have taken a lot of them apart; remove and wash the mat with soapy water and dry completely. Clean the contact points on the board with denatured alcohol and dry.

put it back together and bingo--everything works.

The remote pictured is typical of Mitsubishi sets and almost any Mitsubishi remote will confirm if this is your problem or not.

If this told you something you did not know rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Mitsubishi ws-65615 tv flashing timer light. tv

ONLY 1 of 2 things can cause this problem----First thing to do is remove front speaker grill--it should pull out and is secured with plastic pegs--behind it you will find an inspection plate---Notice the one or two pairs of wires coming from the front keyboard2.gif of the set---remove the inspection plate and follow the wires to the right--you can unplug both plugs(most have two and they are marked with letters and different sizes so you cannot get them wrong)

The idea here is to remove the front keyboard2.gif with its reset button etc from the circuit---You will still be able to try to turn the set on with the remote---these sets have a Receiver(large metal box to the left as you look from the back) and if the power goes out the green light will blink for about 70 seconds and then go out---it is the Receiver booting up. It is called the DM board.

If disconnecting the keyboard2.gif allows the set to turn on--you have a bad reset switch and two choices---either operate the set only with the remote or to remove the front screen and get at the reset switch (it is tiny) and remove and/or replace it.

If disconnecting the keyboard does not restore the set to operation---the receiver is bad---there are 4 or more caps and some pico fuses that can fail in that unit---Mitsubishi no longer sells or repairs these--if it is bad and not the caps there is a company you can send the unit to and have it repaired--if you need to know their name let me know---you can call them and get a quote for repairing the receiver.

My Mitsubishi ws-65819 won't power up. When I use

Unplug it ,leave it unplugged for at least an hour.
now slowly plug back in , if you notice a small spark coming
from the plug when you plug it in that's normal

which means most likely the regulator or output tran is out.
is about 150.00 200.00 normal cost. no more.

If the plug doesn't spark at all when you plug it in slowly
could be a Fuse :>

Manual should be available here to look at or dwonload. I copied the reset instructions. You may have to go through some set-ups after a system reset. Good Luck.

System Reset
If the TV will not respond to either the remote control or the front panel controls and/or will not power Off, press the SYSTEM RESET button with a pointed item like the end point of a paperclip. The TV will turn Off and the TIMER light will flash quickly for about one minute. When the TIMER light stops flashing, you may again turn on the TV. The changes you made the last time the TV was on before you used the SYSTEM RESET button may be lost, however, the changes that were previously saved are not lost.

Power Problem

Most likely the power supply is failing, or some other circuit that is causing a safety shutdown.

Without doing the proper tests and diagnistics, it is impossible to accurately speculate the exact fault.
