Question about Mitsubishi WS-55819 55" Rear Projection Television
I went through the self diagnosis and got a 2 - 3 on the led front panel. I think this is a deflection protect (maybe a loss of vertical or horizontal deflection). I have heard through other people that there problem was the IC's behind the heatsink and another person had said it was there power switch that was bad. Just need assistance in finding exactly what it is so I don't get the wrong part. Do not have a schematic either. Thankyou, Wade
Hello Wade, We first need to find out what is wrong and to do that you need to contact the manufacture and get a schematic. Let me explain why. A television is a complex system, and there are components that channel hugh amounts of voltage and current, to go into the section that you need to go into without a schematic is ill-advised, I don't mean to sound preachy, but having 25 years of Electronics experience, two degrees in Electronics Engineering, being a Certified Electronics Technician, and a Certified Broadcast Technologist, even with all of this I don't do anything with electricity or electronics without having a schematic. The reason I said all of this was because of your last statement. I want to help you, but part of that help requires that you meet me or anyone here on FixYa half way, and if any of the technicians here require that you get a schematic, they are not telling you that because they want you to spend money, they are telling you that because they need to know what voltage levels are present and what ones are not. That could be the difference between you spending $400.00 (IHVT, HOT, Volt reg) and you spending .25 cent (Fuse). Now this is what I want you to do, I want you to call the manufacture and get a schematic, then I want you to get a Digital Multimeter. After you have these items, I will spend as much time as you need helping you with fixing this TV. I said all of this because I want to help you fix this problem but you have to at least beable to tell me what the circuit conditions are. I hope I have not offended you, Respectfully Submitted, Shuttle83
