    I have the same issue, The TV gets power (the red light stays on) when I hit the reset button, It clicks like its trying to reset but the button just instantly goes to steady red. I replaced the DM board but it's doing the exact same thing. Could the reset button be defective? If the backlight was burned out wouldn't the status light still be blue? The monitor would still be working just not visible (because of no backlighhht) such as a computewr monitor.

Hey BooBoo198,

One of the most common reasons why this may occur is if your TV has encountered a recent power fluctuation/surge or has detected any kind of unusual feedback. As a safety precaution, many newer TV's will automatically shut themselves down whenever either of these are encountered. Many models will have one or more lights on the front of their case that may blink if this has happened. According to information from the manufacturer, simply pressing the "System Reset" button on the TV should resolve this kind of issue. If the problem persists however, you may wish to try using a different AC line power conditioner/surge protector.

If the TV doesn't turn on at all, this can also be an indicator that the bulb or lamp in the TV has burned out. Please keep in mind however, that it is generally best to double-check with your owner's manual documentation for confirmation of what any steady/blinking light means.

Additionally, Mitsubishi has indicated that if the "Status" light is either steady or flashing red you may need to contact a factory-authorized repair facility for service.

If you have not had any luck working with either Mitsubishi itself or Circuit City, remember that you can always contact a Best Buy™ representative for further assistance. If we don't have a repair tech in your area, Best Buy™ would be glad to locate a factory-authorized third-party service center on your behalf.

You can reach us by calling our toll-free hotline at 888-Best-Buy (888-237-8289), and asking the operator to speak with our in-home TV repair department.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

What could be the cause of my mitsubishi lt-3040 flat panel tv not powering on

If nothing works, just check the cables, connections and fuses.
Can you see any bad parts on the power cable(s). Does the mains plug deliver any power? Is the power cable still connected correct?

Why does green light stay on when picture is shut off with cable remote from cable box

You need to "pair" your cable remote to your tv. The proceedure will vary with cable supplier. Comcast remotes come with a paper listing codes to put in. Metronet has the following: Press and hold setup until led light blinks twice. press a mode key tv dvd aux. press and hold ok key until the device turns off. Other suppliers, your on your own.

2 year old Mitsubishi LT-46149 46" LCD Flat Panel

Does it come and go? I would try reseting the ribbon cables between the LCD panel and the T-CON board first.
The Flexible Printed Circuit BoardS (FPCB) are ultrasonic welded to the LCD TFT panel, they are not SOLDERED on! The connections do get bad due to very delicate nature of how the LCD panels are made. You can also try squeezing the around the top area of the screen where the lines are to see if the lines go away.

Basic LCD monitor and TV troubleshooting guide:
Failed TV and Monitors:
Learn about bad caps:
Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps.
Or, just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current and long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
Please post back what you find.
