Question about Mitsubishi VS-50703 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Fixed, then it broke

Mitsu 50inch I got from my parents that lost video thru the Coaxial inputs. Brought it to a shop I've used before and they replaced the video module board, 3 capacitors and had it back to me in no time. Worked like a charm. I moved it into my basement and asked for anything specific about moving it to worry about. They told me to let the set settle before I used it so the coolant would level back out from being tipped down the stairs. So, I let it sit for an hour or so before I turned it on.

A week later, it started to not stay on. ( according to the kids ). So I check it out and it works, but the antennae reception is gone again. I get something in the PIP, but it won't switch to the big screen. I go through the menu's, and get some screen shake when inputting remote commands. I ran the Sat through the VCR and into the set via RCA and got my picture back. Great!

Well, this morning, it's click and click....no TV. Opened up the set and found coolant on the new board and traces of it on the far left Gun. Obviously my new circuit board is short circuited due to coolant. The part is under warranty, but...

What am I to expect as a response from the shop? Is the coolant leak due to moving the TV which is what caused the failure again...I didn't plan to get a TV and fix it right now, so the budget got stretched as far as it's going to go, and moving this TV isn't obviously convenient, and I'm 30 miles from the shop that serviced it. I'd like to procede with this honestly and the most conveniently for both myself and the shop. I can remove the circuit board and bring it to them, I can pull the gun...these things I can do confindently, but I'm not as confindent as to what to do with them. I can pull a part and put back together just about anything, but I don't want to void the warranty work so I'm not touching anything at the moment... Where should I go with this problem? At this point I don't want to get rid of the TV, but I can't afford any more costly repairs either....the wife won't be too happy with a broken repaired TV sitting downstairs.

    Thanks. Would the leak have been cause from moving the set, or just due to its age? ( 9 yrs )

    Called the shop and they said to bring it down, they will repair gratis. Good shop, great service. Now if I could only get them to come here and drag it out of my basement for me!

    Funny, I never wanted a big screen TV for this very reason ( only looked at 42-47" LCD's for that very reason....).

I want to connect my DVD and TV to my Samsung Sound Bar but there is only 1 optic cable port on the sound bar


You can use the other inputs as long as they are labeled a/v or left, right , video. or are coaxial cable. optical means it is digital light input , not optical {video}.. the optical is actually a piece of monofilament that a light signal passes thru.

Replacing coaxial input


Coaxial cables are all standard for that kind of TV. I'm about 99% sure on that so just go to a electronics shop and buy one and double check with the person at the shop but I'm sure you'll be save just replacing your old one with the same size!!!!

I see red dots on screen of dlp samsung tv. Not sure why. Could be a bad lamp? When I watch tv thru regular tv cable between cable box and tv , the tv is loosing signal.Thru s video signal is ok.


optic block failure is the dotty appearance use your model number to shop around for a new one and the coaxial input's are easy to break loose so use s-video if at all possibly ok

Coaxial hookup broke off. Can i use an s cable through vcr? need instructions.


If your Sharp television has RCA jacks, you may use them through your VCR. Your VCR would have to have a tuner and then you may use this as a means for getting a signal. Newer VCRs and DVD players generally do not have a tuner. Thanks for asking!

Good Afternoon, i have a Mitsu Projection TV 1080 HD series and cant seem to find a place to plug in the HDMI line..any suggestions?


You can use an HDMI-to-DVI cable for the TV's DVI input and this would give you video at full HD 1080p resolution but you need to route the audio via standard red & white RCA. It would be better if it has digital audio inputs such as optical or coaxial to get Dolby Digital and other digital formats from your source.

If in the unlikely scenario that it does not have a DVI input (which looks similar to your PC's blue VGA only wider and is white) you can hook it up to your component video-in (which is the red/blue/green RCA inputs). For this you need a cable that has HDMI on one end and red/blue/green for video RCA's +red/white RCA's audio.

This would give you 1080i resolution with stereo audio.

Hope that helps.

Input cable piece broke off akai pt5499hd


The coaxial input can be soldered back in. You will need a new one however. Sometimes the internals in the tuner (where coaxial goes) may be damaged when coaxial connection breaks out. If that is the case a tech may charge more money. But just to replace the connection should be relatively inexpensive.

Need diagram to connect Motorola DVR, Panasonic DMR-E recorder, A/V Receiver, and HDTV


Your not going to be able to connect in series (not sure if thats your goal) since your limited by the type of connections you can use. Your receiver is going to have to be switched depeneding on what source you want to listen too. DVR, DVD, etc. HDMI is going to important for your TV connection. Radio Shack has cheap HDMI cables.
So... connect HDMI from DVR to HDTV this will give you sound and picture to TV. Connect DVR optical or coaxial ( RCA if you dont care about surround) to Receiver to give you DVR sound thru Receiver input.
Connect DVD to receiver via optical/coaxial/rca for DVD sound thru receiver (again RCA is not recommended for surround).
Connect Component video to HDTV(or HDMI if TV has second HDMI input) to give you video from DVD.
Connect Yellow video or S-video from DVR to DVD recorder input to allow recording from DVR. Also connect red/white audio to (same) DVD input.
That should cover it.
