Question about Mitsubishi WS-55809 55" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

I just bought a Mitsubishi 60" TV from Craigslist yesterday. It was working GREAT. I tried turning it on tonight and it won't turn on. The green light comes on and makes a click noise and then nothing. I pushed in and held the input and menu buttons and it made this pattern? 2 blinks, pause, 4 blinks, pause and repeated this a few times. Can anyone help me? Or do I need to pay for somone to come look at it? Keep in mind I have zero 'techie' background so you will need to keep any suggestions or intructions pretty simple. :) Thanks in advance for your help....

    I bought the set 'used' off of Craigslist so it doesn't have any kind of warranty. The set has been unplugged since last night.

The blinking light signifies to a repair technician with capacitors or circuits are having an issue they can diagnose the problem via the amount of blinks in between pauses however it will require a technician and some specific tools and schematics to fix however the click would make it seem like its a simple fuse and might be cheap to replace if the tv was working perfectly before this happened this is what I would suggest


Hope this helped

I was just wondering that you have a warranty for the set that was only bought yesterday. Please call them up immediately asking for help as they are entitiled to ehlp.
On the other hand remove your plug aside and power on after few hours to reset the TV from any possible errors or hanging.
there is nothing much thaan a reset that can be done as it is a new set for which you must ask for your priviledge.

MITSUBISHI WS55907 Diamond 1080 TV bought in 2000 was powered off, unplugged, for a year. Turned the set on with remote last night and worked fine, had very crisp picture.


Your TV was waiting between 2000 and now to suffer power supply failure. It is very frustrating to go from everything working perfectly to nothing.

The power outage went out yesterday and my tv wont turn on


Hi,
Most likely it is capacitors on the dm board that have gone bad. This is a fairly common problem and has been addressed on fixya many times. If you know someone who is good with soldering and technically incline or even an honest electronics guy then the repair is quite cheap. If you have any other questions please let me know. if its not the capacitors on the DM supply then its a problem with the whole DM assembly that part usually is around 300$. So you may want to consider purchasing a new tv. Trying the 7 caps on the dm supply board shouldn't cost much if it takes anything more then that. I would sell the tv on craigslist or ebay and recoup as much as you can towards your next tv.
thank you,

TV will not turn On


Call a good TV Tech and have him check for vented capacitors in the DM module or blown pico fuses on the -24 and the +24 volt lines.If fuses are blown,it indicates the convergence amp IC's are bad.The fuses solder into the board.

Outer screen for mitsubishi vs6043


To be honest, most of those screens come as a whole unit, meaning both. I replaced my screen with one off of craigslist from someone parting out an RCA tv (www.craigslist.org, make sure to set it to your area) and even though it was a little bigger and I had to custom fit a few things, it worked great. The funny thing too is, places will tell you you need a diamond screen which you cannot buy, but if you just grab the screens out of another TV and throw them in,as long as you have both it will work just fine.
