Question about Mitsubishi VS-60703 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Mitsubishi VS-60703 60in. Keeps clicking and power light keep blinking but tv wont turn on.

Hi. whenever i turn the tv on it keeps making a clicking sound and it wont power up. it was working fine and all of a sudden it happened to do this. i opened the back panel and i saw a shoting diode rectifier (HERA806G)which was attached to a small heatsink aluminum plate at location D971. it was kind of sparking so i turned the tv completely off. it wasnt too bad so i carefully took the diode out.. my question is if i change this diode would it fix my problem or was there something else that causes the diode to be shorted? where can i order this diode since i couldnt fing a place to get it from. also if you could tell me what my chasis number for this model of tv. please help me out i will be greatly thankful to you . thankyou

This is a common problem with this set and you may get luck by just replacing this part. But of course theres never a gaurantee of this. Its a nte or ecg 598 HI voltage diode. Used as a damper or waveshaper. In this Im pretty sure its a damper.. Just make sure you unsolder the horizontal output transistor and make sure its not shorted. Now you kmust know if your not a tech and know the hi voltage saftey issues with tv sets, You can get hurt by probing in the wrong place even with this set unplugged. I included a data sheet for this dide/rectifyer . Its lockated as a PDF. All you do to see it is click on your model # at the top and scroll down till you see the PDF. Good Luck. Oh and let us know how you made out and if you reconsidered and got a pro to assist you or you fixed it yourself??

Can't turn on the TV. Green light keeps blinking.

You need to change the four capacitors C9B01,C9B02,C9B10,C9B11 all 1000 MFD 16 VOLT (on the DM board which is inside the metal shield standing upright on the left looking from the back of the set)The tops of the capacitors will look puffed out making them easy to find. This is your HD tuner digital board which is trying to reboot but can't - when the green light stops blinking after a minute,than you can power on your TV.
