Question about Mitsubishi HC1600 Projector
It sounds like the unit tries to power on and in the procces hits a bad component, wich in turn shuts the system down for protection. It sounds like all the problemts the new lcd/plasma tv's are having 2 nowadays, bad capacitors are being used by the billions and now there are millions of (top dollar) electronics out there that are breaking down bgecouse of these bad caps. If you feel, open the unit till you can see the print boards. Google for an image of a "popped" capacitor(cap), they supposed to have flat tops on them, but when bad, the tops bulgde up/out and /or leak a tiny amount of fluid. Replace the popped ones (prob just 1) with one from Radioshack orso, they MUST be of SAME or HIGHER voltage then the one removed, also makle sure to install(solder) it with the negative(-) in the corresponding hole. Most the caps will be 105 temperature but Radioshack only has 85, theyve been fine for my monitors and tvs. The actual fix could be just 20 min at a $3 cost, a repair man charges around 200/300 for a new powerboard...Hope this helps some..if you decide to do it yourself, take pictures as to remember how to reassemble it and watch a video or 2 on Youtube on how to replace capacitors..I m pretty sure this is your problem!...Good luck...Ps bad caps(capacitors) can couse many many different symptoms ie; sound, picture. on off problems, only sound, only picture etc...
