Question about Mitsubishi VS-6043 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Picture just disappears...

I have had a good run with this TV! Over 8 years and NOT a single issue...till about a month ago. The TV screen will just go black after anywhere from being on 5 minutes or 1 hour. I am assuming I have to replace something. Is this a maintence type fix and something I can do myself? And what is it that you think I might need to replace. BTW, the TV POWER stays on; it is just the screen that goes black. Thanks for the help.

    Thank you for the help. Looks like it time for a new TV. I will see what I can get for it on craigslist. If I can fix it and make a $100 or 2, I will. Thanks again.

This is a problem that a repair shop must fix. One or two circuit boards must be replaced. Also several electrical connections must be resoldered because they have become loose.
I had the same condition happen to my set. My cost to fix the set amounted to about 350.00. I wish you luck.

It is going to be one of two basic issues:

1. There is a poor connection somewhere in the set--either with a plug or cable or on one of the boards.

2. There is a board that is beginning to fail causing this.

Either would require a shop and may or may not be worth the cause.

Having seen hundreds of these sets all are more prone to flaky problems than the older sets and average life span is 3-5 years.

Shop I work for 80% of them are 2 years old or less.

If problem began shortly after set was moved or relocated I would lean towards a bad connection somewhere.

Slow to turn on Phillips flat screen tube big screen


That is a common issue with the last generation of the phillips big screens, the best answer for this is one that i got at a meeting with phillips service several years ago. On philips the tv will not show a picture till the tubes are balanced out, simular to sony, but in a phillips if the white balance is not correct the picture and sound will be muted till all three tubes have warmed up enough to produce a good white balance. As the set ages the tubes become weaker and this procesess takes longer.

My HyVision LCD TV Picture disappears after a few seconds


It seems that the "backlight" has gone bad. "Backlight" is the device that allows to see the picture in an LCD TV, when they are about to go bad the symptom that you describe is very usual. It depends on the tv manufacturers and model to expect how long the "backlight" is going to last in a tv.You can shop around for a replacement part and try to do it yourself or take it to an especialized technician. Good luck..

Picture rasterization


It sounds like the LCD controller board problem, usually if you cool it down the problem will go away, and comes back when it heats up again.

I would suggest getting another optical block from the repair man. Apparently even some replacement blocks have had issues...

Your problem is simple. The problem is your pannel. You need a new one. If it is under warranty, have it fixed. If not buy a new tv.

Dark picture (HELP)


Open up the back of the set but be very carefull. Notice a large black block with a large red wire that runs up to the picture tube. on one side of that large block where the thick red wire is comming out of are two controls, one should be marked focus or F and one should be marked screen or S. With the set operating normally and not touching anything else, slowly turn the control marked screen or S clockwish till the picture gets bright enough. If you go too bright the set will shut down or you see small thin white lines so back down on the control. then touch up the focus and your good to go. good Luck.
