Question about Mitsubishi VS-60603 60" Rear Projection Television
I just bought my tv from someone and got it home and it played for two hours perfectly. then the screen started blacking out and then sound but no picture. so i took the back off and the projectors still had light but would not project onto the screen. what do you suggest i do?
It may be fluid from the picture tubes. They have a silicon based fluid inside the lens housing that helps keep them cool, unfortunantly the fluid in this model leaks. The fluid is corrosive but not conductive, meaning that it can sit on the board long enough to eat through the board but not short it out. There is a 1" square ic on the main board (large green board on the left) usually if there is fluid damage it will be there and you will know it by:
1. green residue all over or around chip
2. clear fluid on the board.
This is a very common problem and is almost always catistropic. Meaning that the tv is not repairable. I hope you don't have this problem but chances are that you do or will in the near future with this model. This is just a guide as to where the fluid may be on the board, but it may be anywhere. Hope this helps.
