If you are lucky, it's only a blown fuse. Some tv's this large have more than one fuse, so look real hard and find all fuses. If fuses are good, then about 95% of the time, when you have no picture/no sound, the problem is a bad H.O.T. This is a large transistor with three pins soldered into the main board and is very easy to find because it is connected to a metal "heat sink". Look for a large red or black wire coming from the pic tube down to the main circuit board (sometimes it's blue, but it's the only wire coming from the GLASS part of the tube to the board. This wire goes to about the largest component on the board called the "flyback transformer". It is usually black and is about 3 or 4 inches tall, 2 inches wide, and 2 inches thick. The h.o.t. will usually be located in the area of the "flyback". The h.o.t. will be screwed with one screw or clamped onto a large piece of metal (usually silver). This piece of metal is usually about 2 inces square and is about 1/8 of an inch thick and is mounted perpendicular to the main board. Imagine a slice of bread standing on one side rather than lying flat and this is what the heat sink looks like. Sometimes you will see several heat sinks with transistors screwed into them, but the one you are looking for will always be the largest transistor with three pins. Don't forget to unplug the tv before you begin and stay away from the large wire coming out of the tube going to the "flyback". Do NOT unplug this wire from the tube. It can shock you very badly EVEN WITH THE TV OFF FOR SEVERAL DAYS. Just be careful and go ahead and give this a try. You can do it, and this is probably going to fix your set. If not, then replace the flyback transformer. The H.O.T. is about $10 or $15 and the flyback can be from $30 to $80. It is possible that none of this will fix your set, but you have about a 95% chance that it will and with such a big and nice and relatively new set, I would give it a shot. Keever

Every time I turn my HD 1080 series Mitsubishi on 2 1/2 seconds later it turns off by itself


ok, a model number would be helpful but:

when set turns off and green power light goes out: on the front of the set press and hold both the menu and input (device) buttons at the same time for at least five seconds and let both go.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it for a total of 5 times.

This is the error code and indicates where the problem may be---let me know what code you find and I will tell you what it means.

Have Hd 1080 series tv model # vs-50111 tv will not turn on. When you try to turn it on green light stays on for 3 seconds then nothing.


it may or may not have the self check but try this:

When green light comes on and goes off ON THE FRONT OF THE SET press and hold the menu and input buttons at same time for 5 seconds or more and release both.

Power light should blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks and pause--repeat it several times--all their sets after 1999 have this feature.

If yours does not someone has to go inside and measure voltages etc to find problem---a lot of the older ones develop broken solder connections and the chassis would have to be examined for that.

Mitsubishi big screen HD 1080 series model WS-55809. it switched off one day. and when i turn it back on it switches right back off. red light in front. what part do i need to fix it/


That model does not have a red light---Green.

If set powers up for a few seconds (green power light) and goes out do the self check the model indicated has:

On front of set (not with remote) press and hold both the input and menu buttons for at least 5 seconds and release both.

Green power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks a pause and repeat it several times.

Let me know what error code you find (if you have unplugged the set that will clear all errors and you have to plug it in and try to turn set on again---when it fails do the self check)

Sher3sc@aolI have a Mitsubishi hd 1080 series and the power button goes off as soon as you turn it on. How can I fix this?


The set has a self check feature: when green light (power) goes out on the front of the set press and hold both the menu and input buttons at same time for at least five seconds and release both.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like: 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it several times.

If the set was unplugged you will have to try to turn it on and then do the check.

2,2 is short protection and usually means (98%) convergence problem.

1,2 is no error detected etc.

Let me know what you find and I will help.

I have a mitsubishi 1080 series tv. I turned the tv off and then I went to go turn it on, now the little green light on the tv stays on for 2 sec. and then goes away without the piture ever coming on.


A hint--if the green power light comes on for a few moments and goes off do the self check this set has.

On the front of the set press and hold BOTH THE MENU AND INPUT (OR DEVICE) BUTTONS BOTH FOR AT LEAST 5 SECONDS. Release both buttons and look at the power button.

If this is the case the power light will blink a two digit error code--most common in this case is 2 blinks, a pause and 2 blinks--it will repeat the code up to ten times.

Let me know if you find an error code or the power light just blinks and never stops.

I push power button and my 1080 series 42 in. mitsubishi big screen shuts right back off.


Most of these sets have a self check feature:
UNPLUG TV AND THEN PLUG BACK IN---TURN ON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ON FOR A MOMENT AND GOES OFF.

PRESS AND HOLD “device”(device sometimes is called input) and “menu” buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release both together.


Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem


******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protect the Convergence IC or IC’s is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergence IC and shut down.


SET WILL REPEAT BLINK ERROR CODE UP TO 5 TIMES AND THEN TO GET IT TO REPEAT MORE YOU HAVE TO UNPLUG SET AND TRY TO TURN ON AGAIN.


IF IT IS 2 AND THEN 2---USUALLY
CONVERGENCE CIRCUIT PROBLEM

Let me know what you find and I will tell you what it means.

I have a mitsubishi 1080 series ws-65315 model i power it on and led light turns off


Did you try the self check feature that this set should have? When green power light comes on and then goes off----on the front of the set press and hold both the MENU and Input buttons together for 5 seconds and then release both of them.


The power light on the front of the set should blink a two digit error code----most common is 2 blinks, a pause and 2 blinks----set will repeat the code about 10 times.


Let me know what code you get and I will tell you what it means and if possible how to get it repaired.

I have several years experience fixing these sets--some are worth fixing and others are not.
