Question about Mitsubishi VS-50603 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Mitsubishi 50" Projection TV (Model VS-50603) Has sound but no picture

After a recent power outage in my community my TV stopped projecting a image on to the screen.  This TV is connected to Direct TV satellite which is still functioning properly.  When I go into menu mode using the Mitsubishi remote I get a Picture-in-a-Picture (PIP) which is high quality.  I can see where the Direct TV remote commands operate fine in the PIP while in menu mode.

We have owned this TV about 10 years.  I have surge protection devices on all the components connected to this TV as well as the TV itself.  What might be the problem?  Is there anything I can do to verify without getting to involved in the troubleshooting process?  Is this likely to be such an expensive repair that replacement is a better option?  Please advise. 

Thanks in advance.  Michael Bazemore ([email protected])

I reluctantly scheduled a technician to come out next week and take a look at my set. I was going to pay, at minimum, $65 for the service visit. I was then blessed with the intutition to do a bit more research regarding the PIP box being stuck on my television and other input functions (Inputs 1,2, and DVD) being unavailable.

I stumbled across a post on the internet that mentioned that the VS50603 can reset certain error conditions by pressing and holding the Input and Menu buttons (simulatneously) on the front panel on the TV while it is off. At some point after initiating this internal reset the LED light should starting flashing at defined intervals. The number of flashes correlate to a particular error code. Please go to the Mitsubishi website and download the owners manual (VS50609 in my case, couldn't locate VS50603) to lookup what the various error codes mean.

It seemed to me that that the LED flashing did not start immediately after pressing the Input and Menu buttons. In fact, I awoke the next morning to find the TV off but the LED flashing 10 times, pausing briefly, then flashing 10 times again. The sequence of the flashes mean something. Here again, consult your owner's guide for specifics.

Long story short, after awaking to find the LED flashing, I then turned the TV on and voila-my big screen was back minus that pesky PIP box prominently displayed.

I hope this helps someone like it helped me!! Truly a Blessing for sure.

On my Dir.TV box is a door in the lower right front. Behind this door is a red button. Press it and turn the box back on if it doesn't come back on by itself. It will go through a reboot cycle of 5 to 10 minutes. That should get the satellite going but I'm not sure about the TV input problem. Do you have a menu button on the TV? If so you should be able to find a way to change the input. If not, find your model number, then Google "TV remote" and you should find sites that will sell you an original remote. They will have a box that you can enter your model # into and tell you your remote number. Then Google that part number and shop for the best price. Good luck.

LCD screen keeps freezing


1 or more of the cold cathode must have been busted, the reason why a portion of your screen is brighter. It could also be the ballast transformer. It is also the reason why your screen stops when it warms up. Deffective cold cathode and its ballast has direct effect on the power supply. Replace all deffective cold cathode and ballast, and resolder all terminals connected at the surface of the power supply board. Be very careful with the ballast transformer, its input is 12 volts and high voltage output.

Iassume you mean you hear the buzz independently of the audio program - simply connecting the cable causes the buzz?

If tanything in the mix is powered from different AC sources you may have a different ground potential. Sometimes manipulating the orientation of one or more ac plugs will solve hum problems.

if you are using a satellite dish,then yes the rain is the problem,especially noticeable with heavy downpours,common problem here in the uk.if you are using a standard tv aerial,its quite possible water is gaining entry to the connections on your aerial.picture breakup is usually associated with poor signal reception.you could try replacing the aerial with a high gain type,cheap as chips to buy,and should create a vast improvement.its not the tv...hope this helps and let me know how it goes.....steve

No power


Unplug the tv press power on and plug it back in.
some of these units have a reset clearly marked on the back.
connect direct to wall as the surge protector may now have issue.

TV wont turn on


have you checked the fuses inside the set. The power outage could have surged just enough to blow the fuse. Dont forget to unplug it when you check the fuse.
