Your access should be a a panel near the back or side. You will see that it is somewhat easily removed and should have maybe one or two screws. You will see the casing to the lamp. Go ahead and remove it. Now unscrew the old bulb and replace it with a new one. There is not a lot of screws holding it together. It's a fairly easy process once you find the lamp. You should see the lamp once the panel is removed.

SOURCE: I have a wt-42311 that turns on then immediatly turns off

2, then 2 is short protection. What it usually means in this model is one of the two STK-392-110 convergence chips has shorted and taken one of the 5 amp pico fuses out that protects the chips.

The set will detect no voltage to Convergence circuit and shut down instantly----It could be a short elsewhere but 95% of the time it is one of the convergence chips.

This model uses a light box---with the back removed and several screws removed and one large square plug on the left side(as you look from the back) unplugged-----everything comes out in one piece--the sides are plastic and actually have handholds to pull the box out once it is unbolted.

The question is can you do this? You will need to get the box out and check the pico fuses near the chips--they do not look like regular fuses but can be tested like testing any other fuse---If one or both are blown--you need to replace them and BOTH chips---you can get replacement chips for about 12 dollars for a pair on Ebay---I buy mine there.

Each chip has 18 pins and is black in color (about 2 1/2 inches wide by 1 1/2 inches tall with the STK number printed on them in White) and in this set they are located on metal heat sinks near the very front of the Chassis.

Let me know if you have questions or need help--IF YOU CANNOT DO THIS REPAIR LET ME Know and I will give you advice.

SOURCE: Mitsubishi tv model wt-42311, error code 2-2. what can i do?

2,2 IS short protection and 95% chance it means one of the two pico fuses that protect the convergence IC chips are bad.

This model uses two of the chips: STK-392-110 and you would have to pull the light box out to replace them safely (total parts cost will be under 30 dollars).

It involves getting at the chips and the fuses and replacing them: how much skill do you have?

Monitor won't turn on after a few hours of being shut off

If it EVER works, then the problem is not a failed part, but a weak part. The most likely component type to give you such problems are capacitors. But very few repair techs know how to find such problems, and even fewer have the equipment needed to find the bad one(s) in-circuit. The failure mode is high ESR (ESR means Equivalent Series Resistance). The lower the ESR, the better. Capacitors with high ESR cannot stabilize circuits which demand high pulse currents, such as in switch mode power supplies.

Sharp lc-22sv6u won,t power on. no green light.

Sound like the TV is in protection mode. This happens when a part goes bad inside. the TV turns OFF to protect the other parts from being damaged.
Most commonly it's a power supply related issue. A bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board is to blame.
For a do-it-yourself fixer with electronic experience, a Service Manual is the best for trouble shooting the problem down to the bad part. Normally, you can find it over the internet for less than $20.

Mitsubishi Medallion does this

hi there,

Check for bad solder on convergence module. May have bad stk's. Do not neglect looking for bad solder on dsignal and defl boards. Mitsubishi is very prone to bad solder.
