WL-82913 Lamp fails and TV turns off every hour or so

Every hour or so the lamp fails and the TV turns off. The only way I can turn the TV back on is to unplug it, wait a couple of minutes and plug it back in. I have replaced the lamp and even with the new lamp this still happens. Please help.

Mitsubishi WL-82913 will not turn on, green power on light blinks continuaously but unit does not turn on. Any suggestions or ideas as to what the cause may be and is there a known fix? Thanks for your...

It is a capacitor on a circuit board. You access it from the back of the tv, however I do not remember much more about the repair except that there were two identical capacitors, and the repairman changed them both out in about 10 minutes. Still charged $200.00 plus dollars for the repair, but apparently he knew extractly what the problem was with doing any other testing so it must be a common problem with the set.

Timer light is flashing tv want come on

If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.

Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

On LCD Pay particular attention at inverter and power board, power board can be inspected looking for bulged or leaking capacitors, then tested with a multimeter. The inverter is more difficult to test , there is need to read voltages, should be done by a tech. Also the LCD controller board can cause same problem

On Plasma, test Sustain (Ysus/Zsus) / Buffer boards , cables to plasma, digital board and power board.

On Rear Projection : check lamp, lamp ballast, power board, and convergence.

On CRT TVs, check ballast , flyback transformer, CRT, Tuner, Convergence.

TV Won't Turn On - Timer light flashing continuously

try and unplug it from the wall. This should restart the computer. If that doesn't work, you should probably look at buying a new television set.
