Question about Mitsubishi WS-55513 55" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Won't turn on.

Worked fine yesterday, tonight it won't come on with the button on the set or from the remote. I unplugged it, plugged it back in and the green light comes on but nothing else happens. The light will not turn off with either the switch on the set or the remote.

Before I call somebody in, I'd love to have a direction in which to steer them. I've read a lot of "this might work" suggestions, but nobody came back and said, hey, it worked. The set is about three years old and has never had a problem until this.

Thank you!

    OK, here's the deal. The first instance of us knowing there was a problem was when we tried to turn on the set with the remote. Nothing happened. Then with the button on the set, again nothing happened. No green light, no click. Pull the plug, re-plug it in and there is no click, but the green light comes on, stays on and will not turn off with the switch or the remote. Overnight unplugged, no difference. Are we still talking DM module?

    Next issue: we live on Hawaii Island and there is no shop here that will touch this thing. I am familiar with basic electronics repairs. Is this something I could replace myself? Are there some instructions/diagrams (like Sams Manuals) available? Any suggestions about the parts supplier?

    Thank you again, in advance!

    I'm confused. First you said that "this is common on [this] model, and now you say it is quite strange and will require a tech above and beyond. And then you leave me with the phone jockeys in India or wherever. As I said, there is nobody around to fix this thing besides me, so what I would really love is a diagnosis or some trouble-shooting techniques. Would anything like that be forthcoming, or am I dreaming?

    Is the manual link for a repair manual or the owner's manual? I need the repair manual, but either way, the download doesn't work. There's no extension on it. My computer recognizes it as a pdf but it will not download.

    Hey, you're up for a challenge, right?

try unplugging it and thn plug it back if the light comes for 3-5 sec. and goes off thn you will hear another click noise when it goes off. you never get a picture or sound.If im right thn there are several circuits in the tv that might cause this. the most common are the power supply and the convergence circuits. a cost of a repair for either will range around $400.00. this is a great model and well worth a repair.
good luck:)

    this is common on your model. you have a bad (DM) module in your tv..and asi said it will cost around $400.00

    I don't think you will find this kind of problem written up in any of
    the manuals or service books. It is quite strange and really, if a
    tech is needed, well require one who is a cut above the ordnary one:
    Someone who really knows how to troubleshoot and analyse and think
    about what is going on inside. Most Mitsubishi techs are "phone
    jockeys" the merely call an 800 number and someone tells them which
    board to replace. They replace until the repair is made and they don't
    really know what is going on inside - but you get a bill for $400 or
    $500! So, be very careful who you call in.

    the next thing is you can get the parts from

TV won't come back after pushing wrong button on remote.

Try unplugging the TV.. After you plug it back in it may be OK. I had a similar problem were I could not turn on the TV (JVC). The owners manual specified in the troubleshooting section to unplug for 1/2 hour. I left it unplugged overnight and the next day plugged it in and it was fine.

TV won't turn on power light flashes 10 times

Switch off the TV from remote, then switch off the on/off button on the TV, remove the plug pin from the power outlet. Cool off for 48 hours and then retry. If nothing works, better refer it to a qualified service technician.

Cant get the power to turn on,worked fine last night, it got unplugged, this morning plugged in, won't turn on and the power button just flashse

Flashing is either an error code or the set trying to boot up--some of the Mitsubishi sets if power removed will blink for a minute and then stop--then the set can be turned on.

a model number?

Make sure the TV is plugged in.• Check the wall receptacle (or extension cord) to make sure it is "live" by plugging in something else.• Something might be wrong with your remote control. Press the POWER button on the front of the TV. If the TV turns on, check the remote control solutions on page 26.• The front panel controls may be locked (disabled). Use the remote control to unlock the front panel controls by selecting the Lock Fr. Panel in the PARENTAL CONTROL menu and press OK (box won't have check mark).Buttons don't work
• If you're using the remote control, press the TV button first to make sure the remote is in TV mode.• The front panel controls may be locked (disabled). Use the remote control to unlock the front panel controls by selecting the Lock Fr. Panel in the PARENTAL CONTROL menu and press OK (box won't have check mark).• Unplug the TV for two minutes and then plug it back in. Turn the TV on and try again.TV turns off unexpectedly • Sleep timer might have been activated. Go to page 24 for instructions.• KidPass might have been activated. Go to page 21 for instructions.• Wake-Up timer turned on the TV and no remote or front panel buttons were pressed for two hours.• Electronic protection circuit may have been activated because of a power surge. Wait 30 seconds and then
