Power will not come on even after system reset. Pushed reset and LED flashes then after it stops flashing TV will still not turn on.

do self check: when it shuts off and power light goes off:

On front of set press and hold both menu and input (device) buttons for at least five seconds and release both buttons.

Power light will blink a two digit error code, like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it several times.

Let me know what error code and I will assist you

Mitsubishi WS-55857 turn on/auto turn off problem

After it shuts off, you need to get a code from the tv by pressing the menu and device buttons together for 5 sec. A code will flash at you made up of 2 digits. Example. 2 flashes a pause and 2 flashes points to a convergence failure. If this is not your code post yours and I will help you.

Will not turn on...not the "green flashing light" issue, something different. it will turn on for 3 seconds, then turn off. I have already replaced the 7 capacitors and 2 fuse on the DM. any other...

Could be convergence. Check the error code by pressing menu and device together for 5 sec and the timer light will flash a code. If it flashes 2 times pause and 2 times again it is the convergence IC stk393-110 and 2 fuses. Goodluck.

How do you retieve the error codes?

All Mitsubishi DLP Televisions have a built in Diagnostic Decoder to store the last fault in memory. This will help the Mitsubishi Technician determine what area or part defect could exsist due to your television not coming on or turning off by itself. In order to read the error code from the front panel lights, you need to know how to access this information if it is available.
Please remember not to unplug the tv from the power outlet because this will reset the error code. The television must be in the power off state or shut off state to retreive the code.
Error Code Operational Check
Note: The TV must be in “Shut Down” and not have been switched Off, to perform the Error Code Operational
Pressing the front panel “ACTIVITY” and “CHANNEL DOWN v” buttons at the same time, and holding for 5 seconds,
activates the Error Code Mode. The “TIMER LED” flashes denoting a two digit Error Code, or indicating no
problem has occurred since the last usage.

Note: The front panel buttons must be used, NOT those on the Remote Control. • The number of flashes indicates the value of the MSD (tens digit) of the Error Code. • The flashing then pauses for approximately 1/2 second. • The LED then flashes indicating the value of the LSD (ones digit) of the Error Code. • The Error Code is repeated a total of 5 times.
Example: If the Error Code is “23”, the LED will flash two times, pause, and then flash three times, then this will repeat itself for four more times before the blinking stops. If you forget the code, you can start all over again after the LEDs have stopped blinking. Just remember you are looking for a two digit code, denoted by a pause in the middle.
Example: You are watching Television and after 20 seconds it shuts off with no picture or sound. By pressing on the front panel the INPUT and MENU at the same time starts the Diagnostic Procedure, and the TIMER LED will then blink six times, and then a small pause, then six more times. This is an error code of 66, and will indicate to the Technician a defect in the lamp ignition circuitry. This will help us to order parts for the repairs without guess work.
In addition to the above code retrieval procedure- most new Mitsubishi LCD & DLP televisions have a built in Error Code Log or menu system. To access this feature the television has to be on and have a picture or blue screen to read this fault menu . To read this Error Log in the television you have to use the Mitsubishi remote control and follow this procedure: Press & release the Menu button, followed by 3564 on the remote control. You will see Lamp time, Code & Status. If an error has happened, please read the numbers indicated under Code to our service person or office staff. We can determine by these codes how to handle service on your unit.

Mitsubishi projection tv picture and sound turn off but the power button remains on with no picture or sound turn tv off real quick and then back on and works for 2 mins then turns off again what could be...

Here's the basic troubleshooting:

  1. Make sure that no front panel buttons are inadvertently stuck in an "engaged" position.
  2. Disconnect ALL devices from the TV.
  3. Press the SYSTEM RESET button and hold for 10 seconds. Proceed if the problem still exist.
  4. Press and hold POWER and MENU buttons simultaneously for 20 seconds. Proceed if the problem still exist.
  5. Unplug the TV from it's power source for various times, ranging between 5 minutes and 24 hours.
  6. If it still shuts down, press the DEVICE and MENU buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold it for 5 seconds to activate the Error Code Operational Check. The status LED indicator will then flash denoting a two digit code.
  7. Count the number of flashes then pauses for about a half second then flashes again. The first number of flashes indicates the first digit of the error code and the second number of flashes indicates the second digit of the code. For example, if the error code is "35", the LED will flash 3 times, pauses, then flashes 5 times. The error code is repeated a total of 5 times.
Please let me know the code you got and I'll tell where the problem lies and how to fix it.

Stays on for 2 seconds and switches off

A 2-2 code on that unit means over current shutdown. 95% of the time that code indicates defective convergence output IC's.

Green indicator light flicks about 3-5 times

The power supply has likely detected a short circuit. Hold the front panel INPUT and MENU buttons down for 5 seconds then read the code from the green light. If the light flashes a 2-2 code (2 flashes, followed by a 1/2 second pause, followed by 2 flashes) then pico fuses are blown. A 1-2 code indicates that nothing is wrong. The likely cause for blown pico fuses (FA904 & FA905) is a bad convergence driver IC. The PC board must be resoldered to replace the ICs and fuses.
