Problem with turning the tv on.

When you turn the tv on by either remote or on the tv it blinks green for about a minute or so then goes off. On its own it starts blinking agan for another minute or so then goes off and stays off. You press the remote and the tv comes on.

Is there a fix for this?

If we live with it will it cause bigger problems?

    The blinks are on the ctr panel.
    After the first sequence of blinks on the ctr panel the same blinking on the ctr panel begins again without any intervention on my part. When the ctr panel finally stops blinking and goes of is when I can turn the tv on and get a picture.

    Maklean, per your request my tv is a Mitsubishi Medallion 1080 60 inch rear projection

  • Sweetwood Feb 23, 2008

    The other components on my tv are a surround sound and dvd as well as the cable box and they all seem to work properly.

    I honestly do not know how to determine if my power is clean to the unit.

    plug in a 100 watt bulb..and if it stays steady, then you have clean power..if it appears to pulse or vary more than usual(don't look at it more than 30 seconds at a time)

    From what you are relating, your power supply is suspect..can you run the power from another outlet, say across the room, with a 20 foot or better extension cord?

Please give me mfg and model number for further information
(The bigger problem suposed to be continuous shut off)
You turn on your TV and 5-10 seconds later, the display is shaking or vibrating for a second or so. It used to only occur when first turned on, but now, the problem occurs 3 times in 30 seconds. Of course, many variations on this general theme are possible.
Some possibilities:

  1. External interference - did you change anything or move your A/V setup recently? Do you have a computer monitor nearby?
  2. Defective circuitry in TV - power supply regulation, deflection, or bad internal connections are possible.
  3. Defective video cable (unlikely) - wiggle the cables to be see if you can induce the problem.
  4. Loose trim magnets of other magnetic components on or near deflection yoke. This is somewhat rare but if the adhesive comes apart, the magnetic fields from the deflection current can cause the parts to vibrate which will result in a jitter or movement of the picture. There may even be audible crackling or snapping sounds associated with this vibration.
Note that many of the sources of electromagnetic interference that are problems with computer monitors like transformers and power lines will not cause noticeable shaking, wiggling, or jiggling on a TV because the power line and vertical scan are at almost exactly the same frequency and any such movement would be very slow.

Hi,

Here are few trouble shooting steps you can try:

ONE: Disconnect the power cord for 4 hours. Then when you power it back up the internal soft codes will automatically reset to factory defaults.

TWO: The whacking test is to just bang or smack the set with your hand on the back, side, top, etc., to see if there are loose connections or cold solder joints inside that are acting up. If so, the banging should knock them back to normal and the set should restore. You might have to use some creative banging and some have had to put a book or magazine under one corner to torque the chassis enough to get it to work reliably.

There are several circuits in this model that could do this. the most common are the power supply and the convergence. The only solution will be to get it repaired.

Goodluck...

    Hi again,

    I have already given you the 2 troubleshooting steps.
    The problem is with the power supply and the other convergence as i told you and the only solution is to get it repaired there is no home remedy to fix this problem.

Hi,

Did you try disconnecting it from the power for a few hours? This should reset the TV.
