You have a problem with the power/main board and a couple parts need replacing.
I have a site here that will give you the service manual (If you wish to try a DIY, as well as online support if you buy the manual from them; although I dont recommend it if you have no experience, as there are voltages that can KILL, even with the set unplugged).
http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/

they will even assist you in finding replacement parts for your board. That would be you best option.

It may cost you a bit more for repairs, but will serve you well in the long run..Hope that helps!!

If you found my advice helpful in any way. kindly take a moment to "ACCEPT" this solution.

Thanking you,

    Sorry..with due respect to Midwest-tech and leethedeuce...

  • Swilin Sampson
    Swilin Sampson Jun 17, 2008

    Best advice, and my most honest opinion would be to look for a new set, as although this can be fixed (costing you nearly half of what you paid in the first place).
    A newer model model would be worth investing in , considering the issue at hand. I am not saying that you cannot attempt a DIY.try it by all means if you can, but if you have no prior experience, best leave it to the Experts..

    Wish you all the best, I

Base from your problem descriptions this one should be handle by a professional electrician for your safety also, if your unit is still under manufacturer's warranty better bring it back to them and have it repair, but if its not under warranty bring it to the repair center near you and probably you need to spend around 300 to 500 bucks.
Good luck and hope that help...

It looks like that board runs about $223 if thats correct and it would be about 150 in service fees to my best guestimate. Give me a moment to look up the error codes.

hope this helps thanks,
Nate

    leethedeuce has the correct code. That board costs about 223$ to purchase online. so i would say your looking about $300-500.

  • Nathan Ayers
    Nathan Ayers Jun 16, 2008

    you could do it yourself

    heres the ic information to do it yourself on the cheap. but you need to resolder an ic to the D-board

    CHASSIS: V19
    MODELS: WS–55859 / WS–55909 / WS–65869 / WS-65909 / WS-73909

    this is the IC IC8C01
    part number
    267P155010
    HIC - STK393-110


    hope this helps


  • Nathan Ayers
    Nathan Ayers Jun 16, 2008

    id say its only easy to do an IC if you have experience in soldering capacitors to a board. For replacement of the D-board itself, is generally pretty easy.... it vary from tv to tv.

  • Nathan Ayers
    Nathan Ayers Jun 17, 2008

    you have a failed IC on the D-board as i listed before You can attempt to replace it yourself. Or take it to a tv center and have them order the IC's and replace them.

  • Nathan Ayers
    Nathan Ayers Jun 17, 2008

    this is what is indicated by the error code 23.

    Let me know if you have any other questions about replacing the D-board or The IC's as i listed on a previous comment. As i will be glad to help you understand or figure out anything you need.


    hope this helps you and if so please rate accordingly.

    Thank You,

    Nathan

Here this coveres all the error codes.
Pressing the front panel "INPUT" and "MENU" buttons at the same time, and holding for 5 seconds,activates the Error Code Mode. The LED flashes denoting a two digit Error Code, or indicating no problem has occured since the last Initalization.
Note: The front panel buttons must used, NOT those on the Remote Control.
1â• The number of flashes indicates the value of the MSD (tens digit) of the Error Code.
2â• The flashing then pauses for approximately 1/2 second.
3â• The LED then flashes indicating the value of the LSD (ones digit) of the Error Code.
4â• The Error Code is repeated a total of 5 times.
Example: For Error Code is "24", the LED will flash 2 times, pause, and then flash 4 times.

The Error Code designations indicating a malfunction, or no malfunction, are listed below:
"12" ... indicates no error has occured.
"21" ... X-Ray Protect circuit.
"22" ... Short Protect circuit.
"23" ... Horizontal Deflection failure.
"24" ... Vertical Deflection failure.

    Is the unit still under warranty?

  • Lee A.
    Lee A. Jun 16, 2008

    If you are handy, and can solder, you may be able to save about 700
    bucks if not more. There is a very common problem with these Mitsubishi
    TV sets. There is a digital board inside these puppies called the DM
    board. A lot of times there are four capacitors that go bad inside of
    these TV sets. Sometimes, depending on how bad the capacitors are, and
    if the capacitors did not blow out anything else on the Dm board, you
    can simply replace these four capacitors and this will fix your TV set.
    The average that this works on is about 65 to 70 % of the sets can be
    repaired with this fix. The others are power supply issues or the DM
    board has other issues.

    I would advice having it done though as if you are not 100 percent sure you should not attempt.
    Thanks,
    Lee

    2-3 blinks = Deflection protection shutdown (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection)

When the power light comes on and then goes out, on the front of the set press both the MENU and INPUT buttons at the same time and hold them both in for at least 5 seconds and then release both buttons.

The power light will blink a 2 digit error code and repeat it at least 5 times.

The most common error will be 2 blinks, 2 blinks- a pause and then it will repeat it for a total of at least 5 times.

To get it to repeat this--you have to unplug the set, try to turn it on again and repeat the process.

The error codes are to try to narrow down where the problem is.

My 65 inch projection TV turns off within a few seconds when I turn it on. Why? No pictures or sound.


If power light does come on and a few seconds later it goes off---do the self check that the WS65909 MITSUBISHI should have:

On the front of the set press and hold both the MENU and INPUT(OR DEVICE) BOTH FOR 5 SECONDS AND THEN RELEASE BOTH BUTTONS.

Power light should blink a two digit code--error code---for example: 2 blinks, a pause and 2 blinks.

Let me know what code you get----it will repeat it several times---and I will tell you what it means.

Will not stay on., Automatically turns off.


Try pressing in both the menu and device/input buttons in together on the front of the set and hold for 5 seconds to see if the led will blink a two digit error code such as 2 blinks then a pause then two more blinks followed by a pause which would indicate a 22 error. Then let me know what the blink code was if any.

Mitsubishi WS-48511 Device Screen Will Not Go Away


David,
Let's start with unplugging the set from the wall power for 15 minutes. This will hard reset the micro... While that's unplugged inspect the buttons on the front panel of the Tv to see that none are stuck in a pushed-in condition. Plug the unit back in, power it up and if all works okay you're back in business... If not, let try a keyboard unlock. Press and hold the "menu" button on the front panel for 10 seconds. You won't see any on-screen changes but then try to select an input from the buttons on the front of the Tv.
After you've done these drop me a note and if we haven't solved it will try some other things..
