    Thanks for the quick reply!

    I have seen the Manual available on CD for around $24. I was hoping to find the info I need online...

    Does anyone know what lamp model # it may have. I am trying to brace myself for the inevitable $$$$$.

    FYI - It is a 1999 Mitsubishi vs80803. Mitsu's website only goes back to 2002 for .pdf manuals. Bummer.

    Update...

    I ended up having a local TV repair shop pickup the set. Their initial diagnosis was a bad power supply.

    Should be ready in about 2 weeks. I'll post up what the eventual outcome is.

    Again, thanks for the help!

Are you sure its not a VS60603 ? VS80803 is not a valid model number for mitsubishi. If it is a VS60603 you can get a manual at the following link and they will contact you asking if you would like it emailed instantly. Its 10.99 for the Manual. Heres the link
they have quite a few Mitsubishi as well as other models and they offer free support with the manual.

Sound no picture


When you're asking for help online, it's a good idea to provide more information. It's really hard to determine the problem without seeing the set, so tell us anything you can. Some information that may be helpful:
1) Make/model of the failing part
2) What's connected to it?
3) When did you first notice the problem? What were you doing right before the problem struck?
4) Have you seen any error messages?
5) Is the problem constant or intermittent?
6) Be specific about what you observe. In this case: Does "no picture" mean the screen is dead, or that it goes from that deep "off" black to the slightly lit black that you get when the screen is on but getting no input? Does the screen flicker? If you do something to change the input, does the screen react in any way? Is the sound normal? Do you hear anything unusual? Does the set smell OK? Feel around; is anything unusually warm?

Some troubleshooting steps to try:
1) Turn it off, then back on
2) Check cable connections; turn it off, and unplug then replug every cable coming out of it, then turn it on
3) Turn it off, disconnect anything that it's connected to, then turn it on
4) Turn it off, unplug it for a few minutes, push and hold in the power button for 30 seconds, then plug it in and turn it on
5) Swap out any cables you can
6) Swap out any accessories you can (verify that peripherals are working); in this case, what is supposed to be supplying the picture to the TV? An internal tuner? External antenna? Cable box? DVD player? If you can, take those devices to a working TV to see if they work if connected to another TV.

Give us any further info you can, including whether any of the troubleshooting steps had any effect.

Tv has sound but no picture


I had similar problem with my Polaroid 42 inch. The screen would be fine for 10 minutes or so then go black. I found a work around that solved my problem and maybe you can to. What I did was remove the back panel of the TV. Make sure it is unplugged first. You should be able to see the electical board. Somewhere on the board may be a switch that says "Burn" or something with "Burn" in it. I set the switch to the "Burn" setting and the TV has worked fine ever since. Good Luck.

My LTV-32w6 westinghouse powers on & has sound but displays black screen with very faint colored vertical lines. It shows like this for about 1min before it goes into standby mode & the blue power...


Depends on what is causing it...

Vertical bands of faint black are generally caused by filtering capacitors and can be found in the power supply or the 5 volt supply or even the Video processing circuit...it is not an easy task to identify the source of Video hum bars.....we also call them Jailbars.

Another problem seen is faint black lines caused by the TV set being in 4:3 mode all the time....right at the edge of where the picture ends and the black pillars begin, we see a faint black line that never goes away and is normally seen with a full screen....

That is actually image retention, but it's caused by the crystals that create the picture becoming polarized or ionized over a very long period of time....and it's not easy to DE-Polarize them !

But there are some theories out on how to do that....
Certain people suggest running the TV overnight with an ALL-WHITE picture and some suggest an ALL BLACK PICTURE...and some suggest alternating between both !!

Now, a black picture is easy to make, you just deactivate the Video Mute (blue screen) and set it to an unused Video INPUT overnight....

About the only way to make a white screen is to use the USB port for pictures and take a very bright outdoor shot of a piece of white paper that hopefully is out of focus too....That would create an all-white picture that you can plug into your TV set overnight....

Now if you decide to try this, deactivate any displays on your TV set...all you do is press the display button until the Video and/or USB input numbers disappear....

Next day , set it back to normal TV and see if it's gone or if it's REDUCED....try it again if needed, or try the exact opposite if you see NO RESULTS....

Hi, i have replaced the faulty power supply but now the leds don't do anything anymore. The screen is active but stays black. The backlights are on. When i plug the tv into the mains i also can hear...


If the T-CON board is dead,you will see black screen (no picture) but you will see slight glow due the backlights is still on. Check the fuse and voltage on the T-CON board, dead main board will not be sending the voltage to the T-CON board.

But you are saying taht you cannot get any button on the TV to work, that will point the problem to be in the main board.

You will need service manual to really go in-depth troubleshooting.

Polaroid tv screen goes black after 30 40 minutes, sound is good. No picture. Turn set off and wait a few minutes and the picture returns for a few minutes then goes black again.


Ur tv now power on only have picture few mins,than dead,have sound only?Yes,than the 1 or 2 the long board call the LCD inverter boards are dead.The LCD inverter long boards help the LCD screen to have a backlight to produced a picture.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy 1 or 2 long LCD inverter boards for the replacement.

My tv blinks from black screen to picture


You might have loose conections on the horizontal driver or output circuit,do not use it like that or it will go dead completely and is going to cost a lot more.If the set is older than 5 years it might have loose conections in the power supply too.Call someone qualified for an estimate.

Tv screen goes black for a few seconds


do you get sound while screen does black? what do you mean by "until eventually it has turned black and will not come back"? is it black from the minute you turn the tv on untill you turn it off? if sound is good but picture is black, it may be the resault of a fried monitor tube, in this case replacement will cost alot. if sound is dead also, them it is probobly power supply related issue. get out your DMM and measure the voltages in the power supply. When the screen goes black, is there still regulated B+ going to the circuitry? Do you still have HV? Is the filament of the CRT lit? Does the set still have a raster (you may have temporarily increase the screen setting to see it)? Do you measure any of the flyback derived B+ voltages that go to the video processing, tuner, Vertical Deflection, and other circuitry?
