Question about Mitsubishi WT-42315 42" TV

1 Answer

WT-42413 continues to shut down. Need to wait 15 minutes to restart

This appears to be a common problem with this Mitusbishi TV. I had a 2003 WT-42413. It would run anywhere from 20 minutes to two days and then quit. If this is happening to you, do the following. Press the menu and input keys on the front of the TV at the same time. The green light on the front panel will flash. Notice the two digit number that is flashing. It flashes a series of times, pauses, flashes for the second number and repeats for about 30 seconds. My code was 2,3. This is a problem with the CRT deflection. Basically, the TV is registaring there is too much current, so the protection circuit is shutting it down. After 15 to 20 minutes the TV resets and can run again. Most repair people I found replace at the board level, not component. This repair is very costly. Alot of it is in the labor, because the repair man has to redo the convegence setup per factory. There are special codes they enter in your remote to do the factory convergence. The user convergence is just minor adjustments. My repair man spent over two hours doing this for both the 'regular' mode and the HDTV mode. Two separate convergences that should be set up if you use HDTV. He asked me if I wanted to skip it to save money. After this was all said and done, the repair bill was $750. I held off paying until I made sure it worked. It did not. I then swapped them for a 2004 WT-42315 they had on a trade in with the same problem. However, the board fix above did correct this one. So, my Stereo Store was gracious and did the swap at a discounted price of $500 (yes, less than the repair that did not work). This TV is working great. Of course, many are saying for that money, just get a new LCD, but I was a fool who had a cabinet built to fit it perfectly. With my home being only three years old, did not want to hack on the cabinet yet. Bottom line, if you have this problem, and your TV is out of warranty, it may be best to buy a new LCD or find a repair man that can replace on the component level. Don

there probably is a fuse blown. but something made the fuse blow. If you can take the back off and find out if one did blow and the location for it i can probably help you further.
