Question about Mitsubishi VS-60609 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer


When I turn my t.v. on the picture comes up just briefly and then turns off right away. I also smell something burning inside the electronics compartment at the bottom the the t.v. I don't have it on a power stripe and there was no indication of a problem prior to this one. I think it might be some kind of overload circuit but I don't have circuit drwgs.

Sounds like somethings over heating if you smell something. The wise thing to do if you know nothing at all about the tv repair is to call someone unless you feel convident enough to open it and look around very carefully and see if you can describe whats over heating or burning as if you keep turning on the set and it keeps smelling it will burn something out thats not burned out now.

The motor does not spin at all but the l.e.d light comes on when in the on position? Could it be the switch?

sometimes the drill has level right above the trigger, if in the center it locked in place, right turns right, left than turns left, the other button may also have 3 position forward, reverse, lock mode.
if all that okay the motor not getting power, check the cord, inspect the cord for kinks inside the cord itself, if the battery type check the battery for proper voltage with a voltmeter,
if your advertencies take it apart, check the fuse/fuse-link.
make sure the wiring okay, not burned, smell to see if burned up
that smell you will know right away the system has failed.

My disposal turns freely with the tool provided and nothing appears to be stuck. When I turn the switch on it runs for maybe 20 seconds then the reset button pops and it turns off and smells hot. Any idea...

If the disposal had previously been stuck, or running very hard for a long time, then the motor is probably partially burned out. When this happens, the insulation on the windings melts a little, which shorts them out making the effective turns of wire in the coil less, making the resistance lower, making the coil even hotter. Motor burn-out tends to be a run-away kind of thing. You might be able to get by for a while just running it very briefly, but I think you are running on borrowed time. Sorry. Good luck, Al K

My tv is 5 years old, I smelt a burning smell in the room. The tv turns on then you hear some buzzing and crackling and the tv turns off by its self. the picture does not come on at all [email protected]

Some component has failed inside. Buy something better or pick up another CRT set real cheap. Many people are trying to get rid of them after buying flat panel sets. Not work fixing anymore.

Smell something burning inside Dell desktop tower.

Is the computer under warranty? If so, take it back.

Otherwise, open it up and follow your nose - find out what burned inside it and try replacing that.

Vestel - 5555M TXT - Sound ok but no picture.

The fact that you smell something burning tell Us a part is cooked,sometimes is easier to find them because you can see they are degraded,this things happen for no reason but I dont think is the picture tubes that went bad,by the description it might be something simple,if the picture quality was good before is likely worth repairing it.The repair will involve removing the defective part and then soldering in the new one,be safe and call for assistance from a servicer at least for an estimate.
