Question about Mitsubishi WS-65807 65" Rear Projection Television

Open Question

Hey guys, I have a Mitsubishi WS-65807 65" Rear Projection Television, and when I press the power button, the green light comes on briefly and the TV shuts down. I get error code 2-3, what can I do to

It has been in storage for about a year, but I have used it for a few days without problems. All of the sudden, it shut off while I was watching Netflix. I powered it on and it stayed on for about 60 seconds before shutting down again. I did this a few times thinking maybe it was a chance problem. Now it barely powers on for a second. After doing a diagnostic test using the Menu and Input buttons, I have found that the error code is 23, or a horizontal deflection failure. I am not sure what exactly this means or how to fix it. If you need anymore details, let me know. I will be happy to provide them. I'll even throw in my email address per request to make it easier.

Code 22 indicates that your set is in shut down due to what is called Short Protect. The most likely cause is the Converge Ic's drawing too much current and opening one or 2 fuses. Normal repair cost varies by area and servicer. Expect 250 to 350 plus the service call. I normally do this on site.

You should call a good TV Tech. This problem cannot be solved by a consumer. The one thing you might try is to unplug it from the wall for a few minutes and then try it again.

Error code 2-2 indicates "Short Protect Circuit" problem in tv.
Need to check pico fuses in power supply as one or two got blown due to bad convergence chips.
Below is an exploded view of tv chassis, power supply and convergence area has been marked to give you better idea to look for pico fuses.
Unplug tv from wall socket before to repair/check any thing inside tv.
Hope these info will help you.
Let me know if you have additional question.

65" mitsubishi rear projection tv won't turn

IF model number posted is correct and green power light comes on for a few seconds and then goes off:
On front of set press and hold both the Menu and Input (device) buttons at the same time for at least five seconds and release both buttons.

Power light will then blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it several times.

Let me know what error code is found and I will tell you what it means.

We just got a used Mitsubishi WS-55511 55in. Rear projection Television. There is a green light blinking on the front by the power button, and the tv does not come on?

very easy repair caused by failed DM capacitors. You can get the WS55511 DM repair kit from which has the upgraded capacitors and the CD with repair instructions which should solve that issue.

Tv shuts off when trying to turn on

Check the error code by holding the menu and device buttons for 5 seconds and reading the number of times the power led flashes between pauses. This has to be done after the set powers up and off.

2.2 is a common convergence problem.

I have a ws-65908 that won't power up. When I press the power on button, the green light at the ON button comes on then goes off 3 seconds later. Any ideas on how to fix it?

Have you tried to access the self diagnosis feature by holding in the menu button and the device/input button on the set for five seconds? The led should blink a series of blinks then pause briefly then blink another series of blinks for the 2nd digit let me know what the blink code is an I will assist you.

Press power button green light comes on.But no picture no sound,

I have had my WS-65511 fail like this, first at 4 years, second 2 weeks later, then 3rd time yesterday (4/14/2009). In past, the tech replaced a thermal sensor p/n 299P313010A (but Mitsubishi says that part is not for WS-65511 and that it does not have a thermal sensor - go figure). It is a white rectangle with about 30 pins in 2 rows and is soldered onto a board in the TV. List price is about $25. Might be your problem.
