Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.

For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.

Tv turns off and when we turn back on green lite comes on but no screen and then tv shuts itself off

There are a number of websites devoted to how to make this repair to your Mits. Do a search for Mitsubishi capacitor replacement. You'll get pictures and instructions.

Order all parts (8 capacitors) from Mouser or Digi-Key.

Mitsubishi VS-50609 won't turn on

What a great tv this is Mitsubishi did a fine job making this one, but......only an authorized mitsubishi servicer should repair it. This set records diagnostic led codes that the technician receives to help determine where the problem might be, not the problem, but in which circuit it might be. The one thing to try is, unplug the tv , let it set for a minute, plug it back in , turn it on and hope it reset the micro. Next , call for mits. service.

Model #vs-50609

Good Day, Ken;

This model boards are not available, they have to repaired to the
component level. This 2001 Model is known to have problem with fluid on the PC boards (from crt's). You should get an estimate from another factory authorized service dealer, or you should think about buying another TV.

Good Luck, big Irish.

Convergence Problem?

Convergence problems are what you have possibly a pincushion error. Either way if you have to have a repair shop do the repair, you should look at replacing the old TV.
