Question about Mitsubishi VS-6043 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

I have no idea so if you can help thanks

A vs-6043 was given to me because they said it did not work. The first time I
pluged it up and turned it on I got snow, so I hooked cable to it and I got a black screan w/ sound. I took off the screan and had it on and what I could tell
the bulbs were not on. I just don't know where to start.

The board on the left will have a series of small aluminum heatsinks with black ICs attached to them one of them will be the vertical output IC with about 7 pins on it. try resoldering those ICs and you should get the picture back as the vertical ICs will make the tubes cut off. The vertical IC should be marked on the board but solder all the ICs mounted to heat sinks on that board to be safe.

    when you remove the back and look into the rear of the TV you will notice a board on the left with the power cord going to it. Thats the board that has the vertical output IC on it

    when you turn those dials you are turning up the voltages to the CRTs which can cause problems with the CRTs. Thats not your problem If you locate the vertical IC just resolder it and the set should come back up unless the vertical IC is defective

    everybody has to start somewhere. Thats an old chassis so I dont have the service info, but if you look at the board where the power cord enters the set you will see 3 or 4 small aluminum haeatsinks the vertical output IC should be on one of those heat sinks and the board should have VERT stamped on the board near that heatsink. Try resoldering that and your picture may come bacl if it doesnt you will need to replace that IC

No picture or sound

From the symptoms you describe, it seems the high voltage flyback autotransformer has failed along with the horizontal amplifier (they are slaved to each other). The sound comes from the flyback unit.

Well, the only way to solve this is to get a technician take a look at the set, I'm afraid. Repairs could cost upto $100 or more, depending upon the number of components that need to be replaced,

Hope that helps!
