Question about Mitsubishi WS-65313 65" Rear Projection HDTV
I just bought a MIsubishi WS-65313 off of craigslist. Initially, the TV wouldn't turn on. I finally got it to turn on, but I am having trouble getting the functions to work. i press the input buttons and it occasionally changes inputs, but it doesn't say on the top of the screen what the input name is, or if it doesn't it flickers heavily. Similarly, I cannot pull up the menu, or if I do occassionally, the menu seems to flicker into life, and can barely access functions. What steps can I take to solve this problem?
The set like all has a hard reset which requires a four digit number code and the original Mitsubishi remote---sets almost everything in the set back to original except convergence.
also, don't buy any TV or electronics on CL as people dump their problems on someone else..

look for the CONVERGENCE settings either behind a small panel on the front or through the menu with the remote control

SOURCE: Hi. I have a Mitsubishi
Thanks for using FixYa. You’ll need to reset the Projection TV and to reset it follow these steps—
Turn off the television and wait for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, unplug the TV from the power cord from the electrical outlet. Let the television remain without power for more then 1 minute.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. If the television is plugged into a power surge protector, remove it from there and plug it directly into the wall outlet. Turn on the television. If the issue is resolved then the problem is with the power surge protector and not the television.
If still the issue persists, then it means that the fault protection circuit has detected a fault and has turned down the TV. You'll need to check various things to be sure which part is bad. Please check these---
1. Check for signal cables at the back and also try unplugging the TV for 8-10 hours to reset it.
2. Swollen /bulged capacitors on the power supply board-- This happens due to overheating of capacitors.
3. If the capacitors are fine then you'll need to check for connectors on all the boards and also the fans if they are working fine.
4. Make sure the lamp connections are fine and ballast is not burnt.
Note-- Please make sure to turn off and unplug the TV for at least 1 hour (this will drain off current from all components especially capacitors) before you perform any repairs. Also note that the TV consists of very high voltages even when it is in OFF condition.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

This is a known defect with all the WS series Mitsubishis. The electrolytic capacitors on the DM and power boards dry out and fail. They will all need to be replaced. Mitsubishi does not have any more boards in stock and does not support repairing this. Fortunately there is a company which sells the necessary repair kit(s). I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r7065906-mitsubishi_turn_flashing_power_timer which explains the problem, where to get the repair parts and how to do the repair. The parts supplier also has good instructions with the parts.
Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Please consider a testimonial. Thank you.
