Hello,

The issue you describe is consistent with a power supply board issue. This is the board where the AC goes to. This problem may have occurred as a result of irregular power supply, or excess power supply or power surge.

The TV is receiving current but cannot circulate or transfer the current to other necessary part of the TV because of the defective power supply board.

I do not think it needs replacement, rather some defective capacitors are causing this issue.
Open unit up and take a look at the power supply board.You will probably see one or more electrolytic filter capacitors that are bulged up in the top-not perfectly flat like the others.

The value of these capacitors will be different, most likely they will be somewhere around-820 to 2200uF/25 V( or /10V sometimes)

You can replace them with same values but I would recommend the voltage rating to be higher(like 35V for an original 25V) for reliability purposes.

What happens is,these bulged top capacitors will cause a low and unfiltered DC voltage=main board will malfunction(the relay will keep clicking until the caps are holding enough charge to bring the voltage up over a threshold point).

You can buy these capacitors at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like "mcmelectronics.com"(look for electrolytic capacitors).
After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored.

Note: There may be also some other causes for this symptom ,like a defective T con board ,or main board,but the bulged top capacitors are the most common cause for this issue.

If you don't know about TV repairers, take the TV to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you. Also, note that TV stores a lot of current, so wait a while before opening the TV back cover.

I hope this helps.

Good luck.

Wont power on


some tv's always have standby light on, even iff you turn off by tv button. solution 1: with light on, press a number on remote. solution 2: with light on press stand-by button on remote. solution 3: with light on push the 'on' button on the tv set. solution 4: unplug tv set, wait a few seconds then plug back in, if no light then turn on tv using button on the set, and then channel number.

When we had a blackout, the red LED light did not come back on. i tried changing the power cord and pushing the main power button and still does not turn on?


If completely dead not led, then first change fuse and try again if blows again then there is a short in power supply, I would look to find the replacement board at places like shopjimmy.com etc

My 55313 mitsubishi just will not power on. green light comes on but then goes not off not ever producing a picture. ran error codes, none detected? what could be wrong? plz help


Hello.
Just in case if you have done it wrong.... To retrieve error code plug TV into wall outlet. Push power button, let it do whatever it does. After that push BOTH buttons in fron of TV named "Menu" and "Input" and hold it for at least 5-6 seconds.
Green LED in front of TV will start blinking error code (when it starts you can let buttons go).
If it clinks like "2 blinks, pause, 2blinks longer pause, repeat" most likely you have convergence issue. Two convergence amps have to be replaced along with couple PICO fuses that already open.
I would strongly recommend to let professional do this repair. As well in case of different error code.
Should cost you in ball park of $250-$300.
Regards.
Russ.

TV doesn't turn on


Most likely you have some bad capacitors on the power supply PCB. These sets are famous for this problem. If you try to tackle it yourself, look towards the front of the supply and you will see these capacitors bulged on top. There are normally about 4 of these that I change. The board will have to be pulled out so that the solder joints can be accessed. Thanks

It seems to respond to power supply, send it to a nearby technician. The problem might be it fused the picture power supply fuse. make sure the installation is at you presence.

TV Won'T Turn On


A fuse is not your problem. this TV has a safty feture that when it senses a problem it cuts the power to prevent any fouther damage, when you un plug it the TV resets and it will turn on agian. I have the same TV Check the CRT light guns there are 3 of them. If one goes bad it will cause your problem.
