Question about Mitsubishi VS-45607 45" Rear Projection Television
Not an uncommon warning sign of a failing main power supply.
Listen at the rear of the unit for the (quiet) sound of a fan. If you don't hear one, the supply may just be shutting down from heat. If you do hear a fan, read the tip I paste below if you want to proceed with some troubleshooting. -------- Since you do have both audio and video briefly, this indicates that the more complex section of your set is working.
The assembly that most affects these two equally is the power supply and this is a common failure in all too many of more recently built TVs.
The supply is normally built on a separate board since these are often out-sourced by set manufacturers.
Unplug your set overnight to allow potentially hazardous voltages to discharge, remove the back panel of the set so you can see the guts.
Look for a smaller board with larger parts on it; some cylindrical (capacitors), others block-like and relatively large (chokes and transformers).
You should also see a relationship between the board and the incoming AC.
Check the board for a label or if not present, a stamped-on number.
Call the manufacturer's service center with your TV model number and the number found on that board and inquire about repair/replacement costs; if both are offered, they won't be that much different.
If you must buy a new board, don't dispose of the failed one as there are smaller companies that can repair it for less than the mfr. and then keep it as a spare as this problem will likely arise again.
