Question about Mitsubishi VS-50707 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Power turns off and color is off when first powered up

I have tried to call a repair person for this fix, but have been told that it was a $99 fee just to diagnose and could be as much as $1000 or more to fix. This tv is not worth that much. I like this tv, but refuse to waste $1000 or more if they try to tell me it was some expensive fix when it really was just a loose connection. It sounds as if the problem i am having is fairly simple to fix. Would you have any suggestions on what I should do? Fix myself, or replace?

If you know how to use a soldering iron or gun, yes you can do it. First thing to do with this set is to do a self test to find out what error code the set is giving off, if it has one. You do this by pressing the menu button with the device/input button on front of set, hold for 5 sec and then you should see the LED blinking a 2 digit sequence. Count the blinks, followed by a short pause then more blinks. this give the error code and you can go directly to that area to work on.

TV doesn't come on 99% of the time.

Sounds like capacitors on the power supply have gone bad. There may be some that have domed,bulged or vented, on occasion they will also dry out, due to the heat of the panel. The damaged one you can see and the dry ones will have to be tested. Worst case will be if the board is bad and has to be replaced. Cost of repair can range from $150 and up depending on the repair shop fees and if the board has to be replaced.

First convergence problems, not won't turn on

The problem is the Convergence circuit and the reason it does not power up is that one or two of the 5a pico fuses have opened when the Convergence IC failed. It is either going to be a pair of STK392-570's or a single IC STK393-110. That is as long as this set is a Mitsubishi made in the last 7 to 9 years.
I would estimate the cost to repair 280.00 plus service call fee if any, plus tax on parts.
Let the Tech check it out. If if it cost less than 400.00 to repair, it may well be worth taking the chance.

No power and lens will not come out

Your lens mechanism is jammed or off its "track" you need to get it realigned and lubricated w/a safe lube, like a white grease. You can try and gently "help" it out while it is trying to do this mechanically and if you hear a little ckick, then it may have realigned itself. Some have used compressed air to blow out any crud in there. Try these or take it to a camera shop. maybe they can help instead of sending it back for service as there is usually a fixed fee for ANY repair, big or small and usually eclipses the cost of a replacement camera, or very close to it.
