Question about Mitsubishi WS-55513 55" Rear Projection HDTV
I noticed your post regarding the capacitor replacement on your 55" Mitsubishi, but for some reason the link in your post doesn't work. Would you be able to forward any information to me regarding what capacitors usually need replacement, and maybe where you were able to buy them?
Thanks a lot,
I just checked the link and the bookmark I had, and it seems the post has been removed. It was in the How-To section and included pictures and part numbers for the capacitors. I will try to find it and let you know if I have any luck.
Here is the part number for the capacitors and a link to the place I bought them. They were very easy to deal with and their shipping was FAST. You can buy in bulk to save a little money. I bought 10, even though you only need 4 for the repair, this way I have spares in case it happens again (or if I screw up soldering)
They are about $.39 each if you buy 10.
The part # is P13119-N
and here is the link
Without the repair link I can try to explain as best I can what the repair involves.
You are looking for the DM board. It sits upright in a metal enclosure on the left side of your TV when you are looking at it from the back. You will have to take a few things off as well around it to get it out. Once you pull the board out you should see 4 capacitors grouped together at the upper right corner of the board (I think it was the upper right...it's been a while) you will likely see that the tops of these capacitors are bulged out (clear indication of blown caps) Simply replace those 4 with the part number I linked to and you are back in business. I would say the repair took me about 2 hours start to finish and my skill level is only average.
I hope this helps, I will still try to find that link as it was very useful and even had pictures.
Good luck, hope to hear back with good news.

If bad capacitors are the problem then replacing them will involve soldering.
If the problem is something else less visible then fault finding will be difficult without the proper service manual.
This will show the correct disassembly and test procedures.
