Question about Mitsubishi VS-50501 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Power interrup I have a similar problem with the power cutting out on my 12 year old Mitsubishi projection Model # VS-50501A. I first noticed it while playing video games. I stopped using it for that and it was ok for awhile (although white letters on the Tv started to blur with a reddish tint.) Yesterday my daughter played the Wii for two hours without trouble. After sitting for over three hours, the TV will not turn on. I unplugged it overnight and it still will not start. I have the TV apart and have blown out all the dust. Where would I find the board that has the liquid on it? If the part is available is it affordable to replace myself? Thank you.

Good Day, qfd333;
To find suspected liquid the PCB's, remove the front speaker cover and the small board held on by 5-6 screws. Look at the first 3 to 5" on the PCB. Use bright light it's not always easy to see. If fluid is spotted remove the boards from the back of TV. Use small brush, like old tooth brush, and acetone. You can get acetone from hardware stores
Look for rusted wires or parts and replace as necessary.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

Won't start


12 year old Mitshubishis usualy only need a dozen or so capacitors to get them running again but at 12 years old bet the CRTs are worn and the picture quality will be low, We have a saying in the TV repair business that might help you out, TV's age like cats, so you have a 12 year old cat what do you do?

MISTUBISHI VS-50501A - top 3/4 of screen displays ok, rest does not


Check the vertcle yoke pins for solder cracks. Check verticle output circuitry resistors and transistors. And also check for Coolant leaks from the CRTs this happens alot. Check capacitors for any signs of sweeling or heat as well.
