Mitsubishi WS-65613 power problem

TV shuts off any time it wants, green light stays on. Have to power off then on again for it to come back on. I have been told its a driver problem and I have to download a new driver?

    This might sound kind of stupid cuz I am at this sort of thing - but do you mean buy a DM board (where can I do that?) or you said check capacitors? What does that mean?? (How do I do that?) Originally I thought this happened when the TV was hot but about a year ago it was happening and I unplugged all the connections and cleaned them. It worked fine after that - until recently, then it started shutting off again... I cleaned all the connections again but it did not help the problem. It doesn't seem to matter if the TV is warmed up or not, it just does it when ever it wants. Could happen every 2 minutes or it can be hours that the TV is on and then it starts happening (I can't find any pattern). Thank you so much for any help you can give me!

Hi,

Based on your post that the Mitsubishi WS-65613 powers off by itself but the green indicator stays lit (not blinking) would indicate either a loose connection or a component that is having heat related issues. On even money, I would suspect a loose connection somewhere possibly in the main board or remotely, the power supply. Since the unit will still power up by turning the power off then on further indicates that there is no defective component otherwise it will not turn on at all.

You could try a DIY by performing a shotgun approach and suspect all major connectors and do a re-solder (apply heat from a soldering iron) with a little solder if and when required. Of course your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

On to the drivers, closes I can think of is a firmware update.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Thinking back on heat related, it is possible to have blistered or dried up capacitors specially in the DM board. If you are going to try the re-solder, it might also be worth your while to check the DM board as well as the capacitors thereon. Replacement might also be advantageous as often capacitors ten to deteriorate overtime/heat exposure.

    The DM board is a common known issue with some Mitsubishi units specifically with the capacitors. However based on the additional information you have posted, it looks more and more like a cold solder or loose connection, making the shotgun approach of re-soldering the best option at the moment.

    To help you narrow done and determine which section/area/connector would require re-solder, the unit has to be operated with the back panel removed. With the aid of an insulated rod (an old fishing rod with without the metal rails would be ideal), move the cables, connectors around until the unit dies. An/or press on various sections of the different boards until auto-powering off. Having isolated the general area, you could then start the re-soldering underneath the PCB in that section/area.

I have a 2002 65" Mitsubissi projection TV and it


When it shuts off and the green light goes out do this:

On front of set press and hold both the menu and Input buttons (device) both at the same time and hold for at least five seconds and then release both.

This is the self check the set has.

The power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it several times.

let me know what error code you get and I will tell you what it means.

I am in California and online now.

Can't turn on the TV. Green light keeps blinking.


You need to change the four capacitors C9B01,C9B02,C9B10,C9B11 all 1000 MFD 16 VOLT (on the DM board which is inside the metal shield standing upright on the left looking from the back of the set)The tops of the capacitors will look puffed out making them easy to find. This is your HD tuner digital board which is trying to reboot but can't - when the green light stops blinking after a minute,than you can power on your TV.

Mitsubishi WS-65613 tv green power light keeps blinking tv will not turn on


Unplug the unit for 5 minutes then plug it again. Turn it on. If it does not power up, press the SYSTEM RESET button on the front panel with a pointed object such as the point of a pencil or end tip of a paper clip. The green LED light will flash quickly for about a minute then stops. You may turn on the TV then. The changes you made most recently, before using
SYSTEM RESET, may be lost. Changes you made previously, however, are not lost.

Hi again,

What might look as tight might not really be. Have you re-soldered most of the major solder joints/connections?

The constant blinking green light means that the TV is not booting up. This is a common problem on this set.You need to remove the shield from the DM board (standing upright on the left where the DTV RF connector is)and inside you will see the four leaky capacitors (1000 MFD 16 VOLT)replace them,plug the TV in and wait 70 seconds for the blinking light to stop,then turn on the TV.The hard part will be removing the board from the TV(lots of screws and connectors,takes time)

I can't turn on the TV.


I had the same problem. Unplugged it, reset it, everything. I went to work the next morning and left the light blinking, came home from work and it was off. I turned it on and so far, so good. Just give it some time to reset internally
