There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.
If you repeatedly turn it off and on, eventually it'll probably stay on, but every time you turn it off, the TV will get harder and harder to start up until one day it just won't.
Sometimes you have to do the opposite to start it up and unplug it for some time and then try again.

If you aren't tech savvy, don't worry, read the rest of this solution and watch the videos.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering, and even then, you should go OVER, not under the uF rating).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for many Samsungs with the same issue) on youtube.

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.

Mitsubishi WS-48311 projection model. It started turning off for no reason and I would turn it back on while watching a program. Then it went off and will on come back on. Then you press the power button...


gtl545,

This model has a known defect. The power supply board and DM boards have failed electrolytic capacitors. No spares are available from the factory. Fortunately there are after market repair kits available. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r7065906-mitsubishi_turn_flashing_power_timer which explains the problem as well as where to get parts.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

My WS-48311 has a pink screen for all imputs. Ive tried everthing and still wont go away. It does show it is in 480i in upper left corner and I cannot change that to 1080i. Any ideas?


You can't change the resolution higher if that's what the broadcast is sending. You can try the RGB component inputs, that will leave it wide open for what ever they send and max resolution your set can handle.
