Question about Mitsubishi WS-65809 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Mitsu HD 1080 series TV blinks between black and normal

My 5 year old mitsu 57" (?) HD 1080 series rear projection(?) TV works well except it has recently started to blink between a completely black screen and a normal screen. The blink only lasts for less than a second and as the TV warms up it can degrade to blinking on and off in rapid-fire succession. Sometimes the TV works fine for many hours and sometimes it seems to start as soon as we turn it on.

I've never opened it up, but if this is a simple part replacement I'd like to try it myself instead of hiring someone for big bucks to do it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Sony projection tv...Screen blinks on and off to black several times a minute...audio and everything else is fine


It sounds like either the inverter board or lamp are the problem. I would sway more towards the inverter as when the lamps die they normally do it properly.

MY dstv DSDD 1132 decoder is flashing red and green lights but yellow light is steady. tv is black and remote not responding


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

My lg plasma tv is cutting off the edges of the shows we are watching. I cant find a setting that will take care of it. Can you help


hmm normally these settings are found in the picture settings of the set top box or just a setting in the tv's picture settings now there might be an option to say fill screen that may work best for some or leave the tv in 16:9 some broadcasts may only be in 4:3 at times this is normal broadcasting and not much can be done unless the setting on the picture option is set to fill screen
