Question about Mitsubishi VS-50111 50" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

2002 Mitsubishi VS-50111 Won't stay on

The information that I have received thus far indicates that the 22 error code indicates the trouble is with the Convergence IC. What is the component part number that I need to buy for the replacements? Can I get it at a local store like Radio Shack & what specifically do I ask for?

No you will need to search vancebaldwin, or Mcmelectronics, tritronics, any electronic online part store. RS does not carry it. Also there are fuses need to be changed also. More info at

Mitsubishi ws55511 error code 22

Blown capacitors on the DM board or the convergence IC is bad...

Jul 25, 2014 | Mitsubishi New Original WS55511 Remote...


Mitusbishi shuts off instantly...

Most of the Mitsubishi rear projection sets made from about 2000 through 2006 have a self diagnostic check feature. It will indicate if there is a error or not and point you in the direction of your trouble.

Based on the error code I or others can tell you more based on the error code and the EXACT model number of the set.

Here is what you do if it turns on for a few seconds and then the power light goes off.

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} UNPLUG TV AND THEN PLUG BACK IN---TURN ON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ON FOR A MOMENT AND GOES OFF.

PRESS AND HOLD “Menu and Input"(or device) buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release both together.

Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem

******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protect the Convergence IC or IC’s is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergence IC and shut down.



If someone has one of these codes and needs help let me know.

Bad convergence IC, also replace 5A picofuse.

Green light comes on then goes right back off.

The TV indicates an error code 22 (short circuit protection). Check 2 STK392-570 convergence IC for shorts and 5amps pico fuse for open. I usually replace both STK's.

On my mitsubishi ws65909 I have a 2-2 power light error code, what does this mean? any suggestions, I tried to power it up and the power light comes on and then goes off after 15-20 sec's

the famous code error 2- 2 is for fault in power supply or faulty power supply board. this has to be checked.
and error 2-3 is fault in convergence both the error codes are near to each check out both options. i advise first replace the convergence ic on the board and check.the cost of each convergence stk ic is near to $15 .there are two such ic on the convergence board and both has to be replaced.then check out.if the problem is same go for power supply board replacement.

the ic which you have to remove and replace is stk 393-110 both the ic looks same anve same number .
you can get the required board and components at ----- -------- or from ------ ----
if you are not familiar with doing this you can get it done by local tv repair technician familiar with this model tv.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

My Mitsubishi ws-65809 will not power on and gives error code 22

Your symptom sounds like at least one damaged convergence IC.

On Mitsubishi's you can sometimes rework the solder connections on each of these IC’s, although, if the convergence does not fix itself from time to time, you most likely do not have a bad solder connection. You will have a faulty IC. Since you now have an error code of 22 (which indicates a short on one of the power supply lines) I recommend replacing them both at the same time because the chips legs can fall off due to the heat of the IC. If you have a good low wattage soldering iron ~ 45W (available at radio shack) you can perform the repair yourself, and this will most likely take care of the entire issue.

I like to remove the board that the IC’s are on so that I can unsolder the connections and clean then up using solder wick (this is also available from radio shack). Removing the board is not a real issue as the connectors are all labeled with an alpha number, so that you can connect them back real easy. There are three in the middle towards the front that I like to mark with a sharpie as they are the red green and blue convergence coil connections (they are all the same size in a row). Just mark them with slashes, like I, II, III, or something like that. If you mix them up it is not a big issue, you can test swapping them around until the picture lines up.

Please be sure to remove the entire white heat sink compound on the heat sink and apply an even coating over the back of the new IC’s. You should also bolt them down before you solder them in so that you have them at the correct height.

There are two very large IC’s that control the convergence in a big screen set. They are secured to a very large aluminum heat sink. I think that the IC numbers will be IC8001, 80002.

The IC’s are large and black, you cannot miss them. They will usually have an STKXXX-XXX number on them.

This repair from a good technician will normally run from $250.00 - $300.00, and sometimes more depending on your area.

There are several schools of thought on the replacement of parts and I firmly believe that you get what you pay for, so don’t buy the cheapest IC’s that you can find. One company I worked for tried this and it only caused more work for the technicians, as we had to replace them with the more expensive ones in the end. I would think that you should be able to find these for around $60.00 each. If you can find the exact Hitachi part, or Sanyo, even though the numbers on the front are the same, and they look exactly like the $10.00 ones, they are better and more reliable.

I usually order my parts from Andrews Electronics in
California, they will have the OEM components that you will need.
Their site is
And their phone number is a 24-Hour Order Desk: (800) 274-4666
I recommend the phone order so you can talk to the person about the different types of IC’s that are available.

You can also try , I have not tried them yet, but they do carry OEM or better parts.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

1988 Dodge Aries K 2.5L Engine Trouble and codes

Trouble Code 14 indicates that the Coolant Temperature Sensor (CTS) is reporting abnormally high readings. CTS is used to control fuel mixture, timing, idle speed, TCC and EGR operations among others. The thermistor used has a low resistance when hot, rising as the coolant cools. This error then, indicates a very low resistance in the CTS circuit.
Trouble Code 15 indicates that the Coolant Temperature Sensor (CTS) is reporting abnormally low readings. CTS is used to control fuel mixture, timing, idle speed, TCC and EGR operation, among others. The thermistor used has a high resistance when cold, lowering as the coolant warms. This error then, indicates a very high resistance in the CTS circuit.
Trouble Code 33 indicates that the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor is reporting more air is entering the engine than makes sense based on RPM and TPS. The MAF sensor produces a frequency output; around 30 Hz at idle to 150 Hz under acceleration. The frequency varies proportionally to airflow. The ECM monitors the frequency and thus determines airflow into the engine. Typical idle MAF is 5 to 7 grams per second.

Mitsubishi ws48313 error code 22

that usually refers to either a diode or transistor in the xray protection circuit. There are only about 8 or 9 components that can cause that you will need the service manual to isolate which components make up that protection circuit. If you do have the service info and would like it I can post a link where you can get the mitsubishi service manual emailed to you cheaper than anywhere else on line.

If a output IC is bad it will usually open a pico fuse. These IC's do fail a lot. These fuses are near the IC's.
