Question about Mitsubishi VS-45607 45" Rear Projection Television
My Dad has had the Mitsubishi VS 45607 for some years and he LOVES it until today. My Dad is 74 and a day without TV is like a day without air...LOl.. Anyway, when he attempts to turn on the TV, the green light comes on and the TV sounds as if it clicks on but it immediately turns off ( in a quick second). I any suggestion?
I own the Mitsubishi VS450607 model and and the set works good then automatically shuts itself off. Sometimes after two hours of viewing then sometimes after eight. Very unpredictable and very unstable. I have spoken to a repair shop and they suggested I remove the front panel where the speakers are and look at the circuit boards. They had suggested if I see a white powdery substance then that meant leaky tubes on the board and the unit was shot. They gave me two other reasons which I can't remember but, When I opened the front panel I did not see any leaky tubes or white powder on the boards but, I did see three main tubes in the front that were covered with a black dust. I cleaned these tubes with a soft cloth and for some reason the set is now working fine. It has been four days now without any problems.
The repair facility was suggesting to wait until the set shut off again then call them in so they can actually see what was going on. Repair cost quoted $200 labor minimum plus $89 service charge plus parts another $100 or so.
Worth the expense I figure but set is working fine after I have cleaned off dust on main tubes.
Hope this helps.

Fortunately I have a friend who repairs big screen for a living. Also I am an equipment service tech myself. More than likely the problem lies in the hi-voltage board. The capacitors are shot. You will need to locate that main Power / Hi-votage power board and that should take care of the problem. Keep in mind I would only do this if your picture is in ecellent shape.
