Question about Mitsubishi WS-55809 55" Rear Projection Television

Power outage / TV won't come on.

I had a power outage in a storm last night,... the TV will turn on but no picture or sound will come up. I tried to reset it w/ the reset button,... but nothing happens. This happened a few years ago as well,... and an HONEST TV repair guy actually walked me through a sequence of pushing some buttons ( over the phone ) and the picture returned as normal. However,.. I can't seem to find an honest TV repair person. Now they just say "bring it in" or "make an appt to have a repair man come to my house. Anyone familiar with how to reset the TV?

    Came home to find out that TV won't turn on. Apparently there was a storm over the weekend. Cable box, mini-stereo, and dvd player all on same surge protector with TV. All others are working fine. Tried unplugging and replugging in TV - but it doesn't turn on at all. I was looking for the reset button - but can't find it - any idea where it is? HELP! Don't really want to spend money for in-service if it may just be a simple reset of the TV. thanks.

To Whom,

I have a Mitsubishi VS 50705. I left it on overnight and when I awoke I tried to turn it on forgeting I left it on. It will not turn on. I hear a click when I plug it in but nothing happens. I can not seem to find a reset button anywhere. There was not any power surges to my knowledge or storms. I am in the middle of nowhere, so the possibility of getting a repair person out in slim to none. Any Ideas?

Thanks, Ron

Call the manufacture tech support and ask them for their rep in your area. If it is possible for them to reset your TV I am sure that they will.

From your description, most of the time there is damage to the power supply, or one of the areas in the set.

My tv clicks to come on but no sound no picture


If there was a power outage the problem is likely in the power supply.

The power light on the front comes on or not?

If no power light unplug the set and follow power cord inside and check the fuses---the click is a power relay activating---set may have up to 3 black relays on the power board.

Let me know your skill level and I will be happy to help.

Yes, we had a cracker of a storm to pardon the pun!
There is likely to be serious damage to the power supply. There may not be but there might.
Check your house insurance and see if you have storm damage. If you have submit a claim and go buy a new one, if not find a manufacturer authorised agent and get an estimate.

It powers up but no picture? In my experience with Hitachi TV's this has been an issue with the convergence IC's failing. You will need to have a technician replace those if needed.

Hitachi 57TWX20B powers on ( but no picture or sound)


f you had multiple power outages, i would contact the power company or/and insurance company and it should be covered under that, but sounds like power supply problem if you had power surges
if lighting cause it then it could be anything.

It sound to me like a defective light engine. If so this is a very expensive repair if you set not under warranty or a service contract. This could have been damaged by a power surge.
