Question about Mitsubishi WS-48613 48" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Mitsubishi Power Problem -turns itself off.

I got this TV in June 2000 but didn't use it much.
Model VS45607 (it's a 150 pound unit--hard to move)
Wife bought it for about $1500.

Can't turn it on from the remote. When turned on from TV, the TV immediately turns itself off. (Click Click)

A month before this happened, the tuner worked only intermittently--some channel signals didn't show, some channels displayed on multiple channels.

I'm tech savvy; sent an email to Mitsubishi to see if a repair manual was available. Opened the back: Nothing obvious (blown components, etc. Nothing smells.)

A local repair company will come out to look for $135; if I do the repair, the $100 counts toward the labor. I'm wondering if it's even worth fixing.

My Mitsubishi DLP WD-73873 model television only powers up when I press the Menu and Input buttons simultaneously. The tv also will power up by itself occasionally. Anyone having a similar problem?

  1. Yes, this happened to my Samsung. It was the high voltage circuit on the power power. The TV has a chip that check all the circuits on all three boards. When a circuit is low, then it won't turn on. I checked 380 volts at the capacitor connected to the high voltage transformer. It should have been at 390 volts. I took out the 100 uf rated at 450 volts, but only have two capacitors lying around: 150 uf and 220 uf rated at 400 v. I connected them in parallel make them 370 uf at 400 volts, and the TV is now working fine.

Mitsubishi Projection TV Model # VS-50502

The power supply section is having trouble.
Common possibilities are:
- Convergences amps have failed overloading the supply
- High-voltage section (flyback transformer) has failed
(happens sooner or later, about 8 years typical))
- Power surge has popped the power input circuit.
(Fuse, rectifier diodes, turn-on relay etc)
- One of a hundred of electrolytic capacitors has failed short overloading the supply. They dry out with age, are cheap to replace, but hard to find which one it is.
- Or any of many other possibilities.

In short, you need a experianced tech to troubleshoot this.
