Question about Mitsubishi WS-65907 65" Rear Projection Television

Static noise at start up

Have Mitsubishi WS-65907 65". Bought Nov 2000. Great tv but lately after turning on, there is periodic static noise with picture and without picture. Also screen may go black with noise. Volume control works to quiet or mute sound. Stays that way for 2 minutes or so and then runs perfect rest of the day. Shut off tv and go out. Come back and turn on. Does it again. Not sure if this is going to get worse over time. Seems to have this problem for no more than 2-3 minutes whenever I turn on.
Thanks,
Parker

    Thanks Donster.

    Yeah, I've been wondering how long the bulbs would last. I have been lucky I guess. And they probably got shook up a bit three years ago when the tv was moved across country.

    As for the start up static noise problem, I'll be going out in a while. Before I do, I'll unplug and replug into wall. I have had a Bose system hooked to this forever so I guess if we completely lose the sound eventually we can always run the Bose.
    I'm not going to accept the solution till I return later and turn it on.
    I'll let you know what happens plugged into the wall.
    Thanks

    If that's the case why would the sound be static noise. Sometimes the pic is fine with static noise.

Im assuming it's the lamp however the error menu will tell me more
If the standby light blinks five times repeatedly, that's indication of a "Lamp driver error". The probable cause listed is, "lamp driver faulty". Its also possible that the internal antenna used to detect the presence of high voltage has become mis-positioned. The lamp driver provides the high voltage. If no high voltage is detected, it is assumed that the lamp driver is faulty.
Otherwise, it is assumed that the lamp is bad and the LAMP LED lights
the part number for the lamp is XL2000U. Its available for $200 at http://servicesales.sel.sony.com/ecom/accessories/web/productSearch.do. Use the Part or Accessory Number to locate the part.

Being that this is a CRT-base TV, t sounds to me like the tube could be going out as it is having problems when it is warming up.

The noise it may be comming from one of the CRTs leaking coolant and creating moisture near or around the high voltage connection.
In some cases that can be an easy repair by locating the leak and try to seal it and cleaning the moisture of the CRT, after you will need to apply more sealant to where the high voltage is connected. I have used "dow corning 3140" for that purpose.
The worst case scenario will be to replace the CRT, but for that you should take the TV to a repair tech. If the repair will cost you more than 1/3 of the price of the TV; I would say it may be time to buy a new one.
Let me know if i can assist you further.

Hi.. i'm sorry to hear you are having so many issues..

if you have any other devices connected besides your cable box, try removing them all while the tv is off.. if this doesn't work, it sounds like the bulb may be going out on your rear projection since they only last typically 3-5yrs depending on use. i had one that started to do the same thing and it seems to be same issue.. it will probably get worse over time until it just goes out since it's about 8years old.. hope this helps..d

    as for the noise, i'm not sure if that is directly related but as far as the tv goes, wow you definitely got your $$'s worth out of that bulb.. is it hooked into something that could be going bad.. maybe a speaker or receiver noise issue but you would have to try and isolate that noise problem between the tv, received and speakers.. let me know if that helps.. just try and plug the tv in the wall with nothing else and see if you hear the noise.. thanks..d

  • donna mcgill Feb 26, 2008

Mitsubishi VS-55609: No video/audio - just static


You are on the right track. If you cannot see a picture on either antanna A or B then the tuner is suspect.
You may try hooking the cable straight into the TV if you are using a cable box, if not then you should be getting a picture when your other video devices are turned off.
The fact that you get a picture on video tells me that the AV circuits are fine.

Turns of after being watched for several hours.


Do you have the tools required to solder electronics? Do you know how to solder electronics? Have you been trained in CRT safty ? Do you know about High Voltage safty? Is the tv Model number WS-65809? Do you know how to perform static geometry adjustement on a WS65809 if needed? Do you know how to perform static convergence alignment on a WS-65809? Do you know how to perform fine convergence adjustement to a WS-65809?

IF
The answer is :yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes
AND
You can retreive an error code of 23 or 24 right after the tv shuts
itself off .
THEN
There is a 95% chance that I could tell you what to solder , no parts need to be replaced in your television and you would not have to pay someone to repair it.

1986 tv won't turn on


Great TV you bought.
At this point I would say it might not even be worthy to get the TV fix due to the age unless you can do it yourself.
In my opinion you can save the money from the repair to buy a new TV.
Hope you do not upset with the messenger LOL.
