Question about Mitsubishi WS-65613 65" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

"Overheating warning" Everytime I turn the tv on a warning displays that says "TV will shut off soon, check if airvent if covered". The air vent isn't covered. What could be causing this? Can i spray some of that compressed air in the air vent and clear it out? I recently moved it a couple miles but I had it covered with a blanket and I was very careful. Let me know what ya think.

This model is equipped with a self-diagnosis feature to help with diagnosis of shutdown problems. To activate this turn the unit on let it shutdown then press the device and menu buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold them in for 5 seconds after 5 seconds the power LED on the front panel will blink a two digit sequence. This will be one set of blinks a short pause then another set of blinks, this will repeat 5 times. 1 - 2 = no error detected 2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current) 2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies) 2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection) 2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source)

Over tv its getting aoutmatically off

Hello

Put your hand on the back of your TV to check for overheating, if your set keeps switching itself off without warning.

Many TV sets come equipped with a safety feature that switches the power off if the set gets too warm.

Check the cooling vents located at the rear of your unit. Vents can collect dust and dirt, resulting in the fans becoming blocked and failing to work properly.

Remove dirt from the vents with a damp, clean cloth. Ensure the air conditioning is kept at adequate levels in the room where your TV is located. Keep the drapes shut on hot, sunny days to keep the room cooler.

Check the sleep-timer function on your TV if it keeps turning off. A sleep-timer is used to turn a television set off after a certain period of time has elapsed. If the sleep-timer is not turned off, your television will continue to turn itself off after a certain period of time.

If the problem persists,then a heat sink has gone bad.

The on/off button simply toggles a low voltage circuit that powers your tv. If it is dusty, it may complete the electrical circuit and send a false signal.

Take a can of compressed air, open the back and clean the dust off the circuit boards.

NOTE;opening the TV VOIDS warranty!!

My TV keeps turning itself on/off at random times, sometimes it works, then turns itself off, and flashes on and off! Its becoming really frustrating as it seems to only work when it wants to for a short...

This could be caused by poor ventilation on the unit. The back of TV sets where the air vents are usually located are meant to be easily accessible to air. When they do not have enough air then the Tv tends to shut itself down due to overheating when it geths too hot.
Try relocating the TV position to an airy environment.

I own a Sony 57" HD CRT Projection Television (Model KDP-57WS655). The unit is about 4 years old. Within the last couple weeks, it has not consistently turned on. I've checked the Sony site, and they...

sounds like it is overheating and shutting down to prevent further damage. i would recommend checking for a local repair shop to see if they can get a look at it. it could be as simple as a blocked airvent and the unit is overheating or there may be a more serious problem.

Sony KDS60A2000 shuts off after about being on for 10 minutes, gives a warning set will turn off as it is overheating. Vacummed around the vents and that hasn't made any difference.

check all the fans and make sure they are clean and not plugged up w/dust.also check how many times the red light flashes on the front of the tv after shutting down.4 flashes indicates a bad fan.

My computer just seems to shut off, maybe it is overheating but the fans seem to be working.

if your computer is randomly keeps on shutting down this is a thermal issue which you need to address. check airvents, use compressed air to clean all possible obstructions between heatsink fan and processor. try avoiding blocking the airvent of your notebook. try also updating your bios

Problem connecting computer to tv

From my experience of Studios it's also a possibility that the TV is overheating. Check that any vents are not covered and that there is enough airflow around the TV. Sounds like a thermal cutout is triggering.
