Most likely the flyback or another problem on the deflection circuits is shutting the set down

My tv won't turn on anymore. The red light flashes 6 times then pauses for a couple seconds then starts flashing six times again. Just keeps doing it repeatedly


try unplugging the tv and waiting a minute and try it again if its still the same? It sounds like a Capicitor problem on the Power supply.

When I turn on the TV the green start up light blinks green and the TV comes on with picture and sound for about 2 seconds, then turns itself off and the code light blinks 4 times, pauses then blinks 4...


4 times blinking means Fan stopped, power is not supplied on Fan 1, Fan 2 Fan 3 and at Fan 4. Or Fan connector is not attached securely. Cleaning these fans by using a vacuum cleaner can also solve your problem. Sometimes these fans are clogged by dust.

Turns itself off after being turned on.


Here is what you do:
UNPLUG TV AND THEN PLUG BACK IN---TURN ON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ON FOR A MOMENT AND GOES OFF.

PRESS AND HOLD “device” and “menu” buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release both together.


Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem


******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protect the Convergence IC or IC’s is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergence IC and shut down.


SET WILL REPEAT BLINK ERROR CODE UP TO 5 TIMES AND THEN TO GET IT TO REPEAT MORE YOU HAVE TO UNPLUG SET AND TRY TO TURN ON AGAIN.


IF IT IS 2 AND THEN 2---USUALLY
CONVERGENCE CIRCUIT PROBLEM

LET me know what you find and I will tell you what it means and if possible how to fix it.

SD TECH,
Just started experiencing convergence problem with my Mits ws-65711. I have decided to try to repair on my own and have the service manual. I see also you have step by step instructions for the repair and perhaps photos of the fuses. I could really use this info if you are able to provide.Thanks in advance. I did the self check by holding in MENU and INPUT buttons and got 1 green blink followed by 2 shorter/quicker green blinks?

TV turns on, then turns itself off about 2 seconds later.


set has a self diagnostic---after set does shut down press and hold MENU AND DEVICE(INPUT) buttons on front of set for 5 seconds----if 2 blinks, a pause and 2 more blinks: this is short protection error code---The set does use 2 Stk394-250 and each is protected by a pico fuse in the power supply---if either fuse is blown the set will shut down(it detects no voltage or missing voltage;) It is not uncommon for a shorted IC to cause this problem; if you locate the STK's look carefully at the resistors around them---if any are discolored or burnt---you have found your problem.

My tv turns on the shuts off on its own


This unit will not indicate any problem without you doing something to initiate the LED diagnostic feature. Go to the front of the set and hit the power button, when that doesn't work hold the MENU and INPUT buttons on the set at the same time for 10 seconds. The power LED should start blinking a two sequence code that will repeat six times. The number of blinks will tell the general area of the problem. As an example a 2 - 2 sequence is a convergence output problem over 95% of the time.

Power will not stay on


You probably have capacitor CP150 bad on the power/deflection board. The capacitor is a 2200 microfarad at 16 volt cap. This component should be changed by a qualified tech
