Question about Mitsubishi WS-55511 55" Rear Projection Television

3 Answers

Power problem Unplugged tv for the week I was away on vacation. I returned and plugged set back in. Green power/timer LED flashed rapidly for about a minute as it usually does when power is restored. Now the TV does not power up. No LED, nada. Zilch. Unplugged then plugged back in after a few minutes, same thing happens. Pressed system reset in with paperclip, same results as unplugging and plugging back in. The set is five years old. Is this a power supply problem? Thanks! Sigdigit

    I fixed it! Before I received your possible solution, I read another HDTV forum suggestion that due to possible switch "bleed", try running your finger back and forth along the row of buttons on the front of the tv several times. I did so figuring this was just a buch of mumbo jumbo and guess what? It worked! After my second pass of sweeping the buttons, the power kicked on and it has been working properly ever since. Beats the hell out taking the set apart! Thanks anyway Dan.

    First problem: Unable to adjust volume. Second problem: The Set-Up menu would appear suddenly on the screen during a TV program. Third problem: Unable to turn off TV with and without remote. I was only able to turn off TV by pushing the Reset Button. TV was unpluged for 15 minutes. The green flashing light appears for about a minute after re-plugging power to the TV. Unable to turn on TV with and without remote. About 6 months ago I had a convergence problem which was repaired for $480 by an authorized Mitsubishi Repair Service. What do think is the problem now?

Most likely the convergence ICs are bad. These aare large black ICs attached to a heatsink. They will be marked STK393-110 and have about 15 pins or so. Replace these and check the fuses marked F9A01- F9A06 on the same board. Replace any open fuses after the IC replacement and report your results here.

Mitsubishi WD-48511 Flashing green power light


The green light should only blink if set has been unplugged---upon plugging it back it will blink for about 70 seconds and go out----this is the set booting up and is normal.

At that point you should be able to turn the set on-----what happens when you try?

I have a 56" samsung rear projection tv that won't turn on. the red standby light is lit and when i push the power i hear two clicks and the green timer light flashes quickly then the green led stays lit...


I suspect you probably have a bad LED assembly. It could be either the red, green or blue that is bad and give you the same symptom. The problem is locating parts for it as it looks like the light engine is no longer available. I would have a technician look at the TV to verify this and what parts are needed for repair.

I turned on the TV but just got a black screen but could hear audio just fine. Turned the set off and unplugged it. When I plugged it back in the green timer light started flashing and would not stop...


Nonstop blinking is likely a DM or format board - format board most likely. I have rebuilt several of these by simply replacing all the caps, about 70 of them, and takes about two hours start to finish... But this set does need to boot. It takes about 70 seconds of flashing green light before you're able to press the power button - even when everthing is working as it should..
Hope this helps!

Will not power on


There are 4 capacitors in the Digital Module that are swollen on the top. These need replace with 680mfd/16v capacitors. If this does not fix then replace digital module. The green led will flash when first plugged in. It's rebooting. Then after it stops flashing you can turn it on.

No Power.


You might have blown a fuse inside the TV. Lots off volts can go into those TVs. Make sure you are under warrinity and return the thing. Maybe also a malfunction.
