Question about Mitsubishi WS-55613 55" Rear Projection HDTV

TV won't turn on

I have a 2 year-old Mitsubishi 1080 series that won't turn on. The TV already has a history of turning off all by itself for no apparent reason. When this happens, it shuts itself off, the little green power light blinks for about a minute, and when it stops blinking I can turn the TV back on. The owner's manual says this is caused by AC power surges. Well, now the blinking green power light has returned, but it won't stop blinking, so the TV can't be turned on. I've tried pushing the TV's reset button -- no help. I've unplugged the TV for awhile, but only get the blinking light when I plug it back in. Am I missing something, or is this something easy to fix, or do I need to call in the repairman. Thanks!

    Our 3 year old Mitsubishi WS-55613 will not power up. We get a blinking green light for about 1 minute and then it goes off but the TV won't power up.

    Does anyone know what the problem is?????

    I have the same problem in that the tv will no longer turn on. If I unplug and plug back in or hit the reset button the green light flashes for 1 minute then turns off and nothing happens when you hit the power button. 18 months ago I replaced the 4 capacitors on the DM board to fix the green blinking light continually blinking with no power up, but this problem has different symptoms.

    My TV set is 5 years old, this morning is the first time we experience this problem. Pressing system reset button didn't help.

I am having the same problem!  I see your posting is a year old- did you find a solution.  Did you hire someone and if so what did they do?  Any help that you can provide would be appreciated.

I have the same issue but the light has been blinking for hours. I unplugged a few days then retried to no avail. Time to call a serviceman!

I think this is normal. you have to turn it off again for a few minutes, then turn it back on and wait about a minute or two for it to flash. then try turning on your tv. i think this is a normal thing, just a pain.

Every time I turn my HD 1080 series Mitsubishi on 2 1/2 seconds later it turns off by itself

ok, a model number would be helpful but:

when set turns off and green power light goes out: on the front of the set press and hold both the menu and input (device) buttons at the same time for at least five seconds and let both go.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it for a total of 5 times.

This is the error code and indicates where the problem may be---let me know what code you find and I will tell you what it means.

I own a Mitsubishi HD 1080 series HD TV; MODEL#VS-50111. Recently the TV shut itself off after a few minutes of operation. I unplugged it and after a few hours, plugged it in and it came on for about 5...

I believe it is going to be a major repair and I would hesitate to invest much money into it. I think the age of this set is older than 5 years. The VS model series were manufactures before the WS model series and they have been around for 8 years or so. Never the less, parts availability is getting tougher. If your pain thresh hold is 300.00 or 400.00
go for it. If not, check out new sets.
Hope this helps,

TV won't turn on

There is a failure in the scan amplifiers, and or the power supply. This will require trouble shooting by an experienced TV tech who has access to the service manuals and know the set.

There are many components in the set that can cause this type of failure.

Did you not take an extended warranty???

This type of repair is not low in cost to have done.
