Larry Dillon said: Ken, I am getting to it. You know it is a Sunday and I had a Christmas thing to do. I do not sit here all day waiting to answer peeps. Sorry it took longer then you expected. You have the documents shortly. Dan, look at the model number man. This is for a different model number.   Paul, what model are you asking for?

I understand .... Christmas and family are SO much more important every day of the year ... !!!

I can't complain. Thank you for your reply....I may have sent numerous emails or blogs as I am just getting started with TechLore...

 Thank you,

Hi Larry!!

Hi Larry!!

I am also getting that stupid flashing green light! I unplugged the set briefly so I could move it slightly for cleaning the carpet, and when I plugged it back in, got the blinky blinky.. Model 55859.

My direct email is maxwell679@cox.net.

THANKS!

Martin

HMM martin, do you notice

HMM martin, do you notice what the model number of this thread is? What bis your model number? See my point? Cross posting throws the whole thing into a tailspin man.

Hi Larry,

Hi Larry,

Just emailing you to see if the documents you have might help my tv.  I noticed that you said something about a different model number to Martin, and I wasn't sure if the documents you have might not help me.  My tv is a Mitsubishi HD 1080 model number VS50805.  Please let me know if you think you can help.

Thanks,

Mariana

Hello Larry,

Hello Larry,

I know that it is your holiday, and must be busy.

I think my problem is little different; i hit the power button, green light comes on, sound comes out of speakers (hssssssh) and 1-2 min later tv shuts down itself.

if i hit the RESET button during above, i get e lamp light on. But weirdly, lamp light doesn't come on all the time. Do I have to buy the lamp?  I just bought an XBOX 360 Elite for kids, you guys have no idea what a bummer this is for me. I feel helpless.

 model #:

wd-65732

Please someone help.    Thank you

Mariana, what is the chassis

Mariana, what is the chassis number on the back of the TV set. I am not sure if this has the DM inside of it or not.

vardars, the best way to go

vardars, the best way to go about this is to first replace the bulb. If you still have a problem, you will need to have the ballast or the light engine checked out. Good Luck to you.

Thank you sir....

Thank you sir....

you think that's it?

I found the bulp on ebay (http://search.ebay.com/915P049010_W0QQfromZR18QQfsopZ1QQsspagenameZADMEQ3aBQ3aTB2Q3aUSQ3a2).... would you trust it?

Merry Christmas to you Larry!

Merry Christmas to you Larry!!

Thank you so much finding time to help.

since the bulb lite is not always on, you still think that's it?

Should I not even try to buy a newer power surge?

vardars, you go cheap, you

vardars, you go cheap, you get cheap. I do not trust anything on e-bay, been screwed too many times and e-bay does not care. They say take it up with the seller.

I got it sir. Out of my 300

I got it sir. Out of my 300 purchases, I was only dissapointed about 2 times.

According to your experience and looking at my symtoms, is there a big possibility that it is the bulb? Cause bulb lite does not come on.. (it did only once)

mhoysa, you are saying the

mhoysa, you are saying the model number is VS-55805? Or is the model number WS-55805? The chassis number is also on the back and should start with the letter V. I do not see a VS-55805 but I have found a WS55805. I do not have that service manual so i cannot tell you if you could have a capacitor problem. If you wanted to download the manual for 23 bucks and let me have a look at it, maybe I can help you. The manual is available for a download HERE.

vardar, My experience would

vardar, My experience would tell me to do the most practical and less expensive thing, replace the bulb. If that does not fix the problem, you probably need a ballast, and when replacing a ballast you should replace the bulb at the same time.

You will have to get the service manual to find out where they hid it at. I am not sure on this model.

Yes I DO see what the model number is, but I have the exact same problem, so it SHOULD be relevant to the thread, no?

 Merry Christmas to you too.

Different DM board, different

Different DM board, different procedure. When I am in the middle of sending out the instructions for the bulk mailing and a different model number is posted on the wrong thread, I cannot include you in that thread mailing unless you wish to have the wrong info sent to you. if you still need the info, I will send it to you.

Thanks Larry, sorry didn't

Thanks Larry, sorry didn't know.. I have a major cold, taking lots of cold meds, not thinking clearly, facing Christmas with relatives coming over and no TV.. ANYTHING that you could do to help me get this thing fixed asap and with minimal cost would certainly be VERY much appreciated!

THANKS!

Hi Larry,

Hi Larry,

My 65711 has the exact same problem.  I would greatly appreciate it if you could send the information for me to repair the TV myself.  Thank you very much.

I got some news.

I got some news.

eventhough my warranty expired, mitsu corp, will get the tv fixed. they are paying parts and labor, tech is coming today. I am soooooo excited.

it took me hours of ass kissing, but it worked out. it is just not fair that tv goes out after 13 months of purchase.

peace

Happy New Year

Larry Dillon said: This

Larry Dillon said: This problem could be a bad DM board.  If you are handy or knows anyone who is, and they can solder, I have an instructional file that will show you how to take out the DM board, find the bad parts, and even give you a source where to get the parts. There are even pictures included!  Now once you get this apart, and the capacitors look good, check the capacitors, or have them checked.  I have seen in a few cases where some folks have only replaced the capacitors that looked bad.  If this does not fix your problem, you will need to have a pro come out and check out your TV set..  If you do not have a clue what you are doing, please play it safe and call in a tech.  If this board is indeed bad, the repair should not eceed 1000 bucks.  If you want this file, leave an e-mail address and i will forwar it to you.  Remember, there is a possibility that there is another problem with your TV set, but this has fixed over 65% of the peoples TV sets that I have shared this file with.  Good Luck, and let us know if this helps you.

Hello Larry, I'm having the same problem with my set as described above. Could you email me the file you mentioned to repair the problem? Thanks, Greg Olsen

Hello Larry.

Hello Larry.

I am not sure what your profession is.. But i think you are a tv mechanic, and you know about tvs especially mitsu.

Tech ppl came in few minutes ago. They took the lamp out, there is a white mark on the lamp. They said it looks bad, so they took it, and will order one.

How can you explain the noise coming out of the tv speakers and "it shuts down itself in 60 seconds"? There has never been the lamp lite on.

it is on now because they took it out. I am confused
