Question about Mitsubishi VS-50605 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

VS-50605 (mitsubishi) You can hear a highvoltage chirp (clicking sound)over and over and over and over.. you can see the crt tubes flicker. Like its trying to turn on... May be the sound of relays firing... Any suggestions on what components to try changing? I metered out the 2 Horizontal transistors and they seem to be ok. I think I'm going to try to change out the Vertical IC.. and go from there. Any and all help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated Meltrex

Yes sir change IC 401 and dont forget to change C 920 also. This is a very common problem with this set. If you do not change the capacitor, the IC will fail again in a few weeks or days. PS Dont forget to rate this.

When I turn it on, it makes a buzzy noise but nothing else., no picture or tv sound.

The set has a high voltage problem, "the flyack transformer is defective" It generates the high voltage in the picture tube and with the help of the video circuits it produces a picture. It is not cost effective to repair the tv, cheaper to replace.

My tv will turn on and stay on for about 2 minutes, then it will turn off. Any suggestions if this could be repaired?

Tv have picture and sound within that 2 minutes?Yes,than tv have coldsolder joints some where just resolder the video board connections pins hole socket of the video board connected to the tv CRT-tv tube.The FBT resolder it too.The big black block of plastic witth a red wire with a cap hook up to the CRT-tv tube.U just require a soldering iron and a roll of solders and know how to do basic soldering?Most of the times just require resoldering for FBT-for stronger highvoltage output for the Flyback transformer.The video board CRT-tv tube sockets pins in the connected them both,will solved the problems.

This tv needed CRT Tube discharge.Take the tv aparts,take out the CRT video board,must plug it back in."Highvoltage becareful",find a wire with good insulations,grounded itself in with a screw from a steal frame.High voltage "Take that wire go close to the CRT tube without the video board connect in.Than u will hear a pop,that the highvoltage,just discarge ur CRT bad contamination.The tv should be clear now,after putting it back together again,getting it working.

What part do i need to replace to fix a buzzing noise on a Sanyo DS25390? Thanks, Jason

This tv problems,have 2 possibilities problems.1 the CRT(Tv tube) itself is dead.This u can hear the CRT Video board connection buzzing noises at the CRT-(Tv tube) head.The CRT is dead,also have a little high volt sparks flashing on the video board components too.2 is the FBT-the Flyback Tranformer is dead.This is a highvoltage transformer,a big black block of plastic with a red wire with a cap hook to the CRT(Tv tube).This will make buzzing sound at the base of the FBT.If it is the FBT-it is repairable,if u still can find the FBT part for ur tv model.This part the FBT is a critical part for the analog tv to work.Require tools and also know basic soldering too a must.

Picture tube wont lite up after 10 second warmup... sound will come on briefly... then it shuts itself indicator lite near power button is blinking six times in a row over and over?

that look like if you have a defective power regulator
or /and a highvoltage transistor defect ;or it just could be a bad soldering in power section or highvoltages
hope that will help you or
give you a idea

Flashing Standby/Stero light and No picture.

How good is your picture when it did come ? Is it as good as it once was ? Or is it alittle washed out. If it is washed out the picture tube is weak . Sometimes turning up the screen control alittle would solve problem but if you turn it up too much you would have faint white line running diagonally. Now if you think the picture was good before you this problem video circuit would be your suspect . Jungle IC or something in the RGB circuits . Good luck

TV does not turn on. When plugged into an outlet makes a high pitch noise.

Your problem is a shorted horizontal output transistor C5148 located behind the highvoltage transformer on a heat sink with a clip over it and you can't see the number unless you remove the clip Has to be unsolded and solder in new. Also the highvoltage transformer must be replaced This is the big part with the large red wire coming out and going to the top of the picture tube. Must be unsoldered and replaced with original RCA not get a replacement It has several connections plus three wires to connect to it and I recommend using desoldering brad can get at Radio Shack 5 foot roll. Well as you can see it gets pretty involved. You can't get the parts from most distributors unless you have a business. If he tackles it and has a distributor the parts would run about $50 to $60 and a repairman average should be less than $200 and more than $150 hope this helps. Contact me for any questions you may have. I am more than willing to help.

TV wont come on

some electronic components inside your TV had shorted out! you might be hearing a slight CHIRPING! like the sound of crickets! or maybe whining! the sound migth be coming from the transformer/inductor with a shorted component on its output!

TV will not switch on

It sounds like you may be on the right track. Also you could have a problem in your Horizontal Deflection circuit. Since you say it flickered, you may have a solder joint that was arcing. Probably in the horizontal circuit. I found a capacitor which was arcing in this circuit. I was a small disk type. NOW since it is chirping, the horizontal output transistor may have shorted placing too much of a load on your power supply. The noise you hear is the power suppply trying to start. Stargazer
