Question about Mitsubishi VS-60609 60" Rear Projection Television
Comes on for a few seconds with bright white picture and then cuts off i have no service manual, and I'd appreciate if you can help. Thanks Lavo
If still under warranty or if you have no electronic repair experience you should take the set back to the shop or to a repair person. Some of the solutions described below can be dangerous, TV's are very hazardous to service. Even when plugged out, TV's can store very high voltages. Coolant leaks from the CRTs are a common problem on these sets and if the chassis was moved this is even more likely. Apart from that, it's hard to tell. I heard a lot of mitsubishis have the same symptom, but It's still hard to say anything without testing the TV with special equipment. If you open it up you might find a blown fuse, but that's also a symptom, and just replacing it will probably cause more trouble when it blows again. More likely several capacitors have each gone slightly out of their original value and caused multiple transistors, diodes, and ICs to fail. This means if you don't troubleshoot and test enough components, you could end up finding ten bad components, replacing them, and then an 11th bad part causes the ten replacements to fail again. Good luck
