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....).

How do I connect a digital converter box to my hitachi ultravision 36ux52b? Thanks


You can tune to channel 3 or 4 on the TV and connect using coaxial cable. You can also connect to the S-video input, and use the R/W audio inputs or connect using composite video using the yellow RCA jack input. See the page referenced in the other answer.

PS3 wont display using HDMI ports and Input connection on PT-52LCX66


It would seem either a setting at the ps3 or the set is not right.

Good idea to check all inputs and setup again--if something like a DVD works on rear input issue is with the PS3.

Broken tuner


If the board is not cracked,a qualified technician may be able to sloder another coaxial jack for a service call charge. Look carefully with a flash light........if you see the small board is cracked.....it will need the tuner and could cost $200. You may be able to cicuimvent by hooking your cable box or satellite box into the video inputs instead......select with input button on remote and should work fine with no repair at all

Where can i find a cable for my HDTV (the kind that get screwed in)cables? its a Mitsubishi WT-46805


Hello sounds like the coaxial connector has come off or broken off the tuner, You can repair this problem using the old connector that broke off by taking out the tuner and resoldering the center pin back to the tuner board (provided the small tuner board is not cracked) and the out side of the connector to the tuner housing for ground. If you are just using or referring to a common coaxial cable to purchase, you can get these from everywhere Radio shack, Fry's etc. Also ur local cable company. If all else fails use the rca output jacks from the cable box if u have one and connect it to video input one on the back of the television, make sure you change you television input to video one if u decide to do it this way.

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.
