Question about Mitsubishi WS-65857 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

I keep blowing HOT on my Mitsubishi WS-65857

Guys,

I got the parts in today, installed them, turned on the TV and everything appeared to be working great...however after about 3 minutes the sides started to collapse towards the center of the screen and then the TV shut down again.

I felt the convergence chips and they were not hot, but the C5418 tranistor horizontal output Q5A31 was smoking hot and the diode is shorted again.

Now when I plug the TV in I get 3 very fast blinks from the green power light and the TV won't come on.

I think we must be getting close, What do you think is blowing out the horizontal output Q5A31?

BTW, when the TV did come on for 3 minutes the picture looked GREAT!

I have a Mitsubishi WS-65857 with a blue/red convergence problem. Can anyone give me some advice on parts, where to get them and how to make the repairs? Thanks


The Convergence ICs and pico fuses need replacement. You can get the convergence repair kit for your model from www.tvrepairworld.com the kits contains the parts and the CD with instructions

Mitsubishi ws 65857 no picture but screen pulsates. bulbs ok


code 12 indicates no fault. tv probably needs the high voltage board rebuilt, have a shop do it. Maybe you need to check all the connections.

Mitsubishi WS 65857 Picture problem.


Mitsubishi's have been known to "burn in" when you have a stationary image on the screen for too long. Usually its not a problem but in some cases I've seen..if its hours and hours of game play..or even places like home shopping network that have phone numbers that never move during the broadcast...it can cause the image to burn the screen.

The projection tubes would not be burned...it would be the mirror viewing screen.

What happens


you have the V17+ chassis. The error code blinks a 2 digit code. So yours is either blinking a 12 for no error or a 21 for xray protect shutdown. Count the blinks carefull. it should blink a number pause then blink the second number. You will no doubt need the service manual. I have a good source for mitsubishi service manuals. Let me know if youd like more info and let me know what you discover with the blinking Led.
