Question about Mitsubishi WS-55859 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Blinking green light will not power up

The power went out prior to this problem but the TV was off. Tech came out, had to take in to shop said it would be over $300 to $750 and said it might need computer module or power supply module.

I have a fellow tech who worked as a TV repairemen and said he had seen this problem before and it was only maximun of a $100. Whats your thought.

My WS-55859, Did the same thing. Power went out, when it came back on the green light in front of TV would blink, but TV would not power on. Did some googling and saw multiple posts for "blinking Green light" or "Blinking Green light of death". Most of the posts pointed to replacing capacitors on DM Power board. I followed the direction and it worked great. Note the TV shop guy who did the soldering for me said the capacitors "looked fine" and they were not the problem. I couldn't tell the difference between a good or bad capacitor, so I asked him to swap them anyway. He did, I plugged the board back in, buttoned up the back of the TV. After 60 seconds Green light stopped and I started watching TV again... Here is the link to the best instructions I found (http://hdtvoice.com/voice/showthread.php?t=32186).

Our Mitsubishi projection tv went out one day. When we went to turn it back on all it does is blink the green light for a few seconds and then shuts off. What could it be? Where can we look to see where...


MOST OF THESE SETS HAVE A SELF DIAGNOSTIC:

UNPLUG TV AND THEN PLUG BACK IN---TURN ON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ONFOR A MOMENT AND GOES OFF.

PRESS AND HOLD "device"(input) and "menu"buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release both together.


Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem


******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protectthe Convergence IC or IC's is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergenceIC and shut down.


SET WILL REPEAT BLINK ERROR CODE UP TO 5 TIMES ANDTHEN TO GET IT TO REPEAT MORE YOUHAVE TO UNPLUG SET AND TRY TO TURN ON AGAIN.


IF IT IS 2 AND THEN 2---USUALLY
CONVERGENCE CIRCUIT PROBLEM

let me know what you find--hope that you find 2 blinks, a pause and twoblinks--this is the most common and easiest to fix.

WS-55511 shut itself down while watching TV and won't come back on again. I tried unplugging and reconnecting, it goes through the reset (green light blinking). The convergence went bad and the chip was...


After you turn on and green power light comes on and then goes out:

Press and hold both the menu and input buttons on the front of the set for at least 5 seconds and release both buttons.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it 4 more times.

Let me know what error code and I will tell you what it means. If this information told you something you did not know, rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

I have a mitsubishi 1080 series tv. I turned the tv off and then I went to go turn it on, now the little green light on the tv stays on for 2 sec. and then goes away without the piture ever coming on.


A hint--if the green power light comes on for a few moments and goes off do the self check this set has.

On the front of the set press and hold BOTH THE MENU AND INPUT (OR DEVICE) BUTTONS BOTH FOR AT LEAST 5 SECONDS. Release both buttons and look at the power button.

If this is the case the power light will blink a two digit error code--most common in this case is 2 blinks, a pause and 2 blinks--it will repeat the code up to ten times.

Let me know if you find an error code or the power light just blinks and never stops.

If this helped you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

My tv went out and I think I may have blown a fuse or something else went out. When I press the power button the green light turns on for a couple seconds and then just goes out. what do you think the...


NEXT TIME IT SHUTS DOWN: when green light goes out on THE FRONT OF THE SET: press and hold BOTH the menu and input buttons at the same time for at least 5 seconds and then release both.

This is the self check this model has---power light should blink a two digit code---for example--two blinks, a pause and two blinks and the set will repeat the error code about 10 times.

1 blinks and then 2 blinks is NO ERROR DETECTED
2 blinks and then 2 blinks is short protect

ETC.....Let me know if you get an error code and I will tell you what the problem is---hope you find 2,2 that is the most common and the most easy to repair.

No power just blinking green light


I had this problem last year. Just the blinking green light. the tv would not turn on. It was the power module. A local electronics tech fixed it for me for $300.00. It was a circuit in the panel that needed to be changed.

No Picture - Lamp Indicator Blinking


This may be the main power supply, or the lamp supply. This is providing that the new lamp is okay.

The service tech will swap out the modules to service the set.

60" Sony KDF-E60A20 - Red Light Blinks 6 times


The problem you have is a failed thermal sensor. Depending on how tech savvy you are you can replace it.They have changed the way the thermal sensor looks but it isnt too bad too put in. Any repair shop should also be able to do this for you.

Part number is 1-910-006-44 Themal Fuse Sony Part.
