Hi and welcome to Just Answer. I'm sorry to hear about your TV. I will try my best to give you a precise and accurate answer.
Ok. Power the TV up and let it switch itself off.
ON THE TV, press the MENU and INPUT (or DEVICE) buttons together for 5-8 seconds.
The status LED will then flash indicating a two digit code separated by a brief pause.
It could be three flashes and then two flashes which would be 32.
The sequence will repeat 5 times.
Can you tell me the code please?
i am lacking a device / input button. I do have a menu? how can i get you the code?my remote looks like thishttp://www.remotecontrolscenter.com/mitsubishi/290p175010.html
Read my previous post. The buttons are on the TV not the remote.
Let me know.
i don't have them on my TV, just channel, volume and activity?
Ok, my bad on that one.
On this set, we want to press ACTIVITY and CHANNEL DOWN (CH \/ ) buttons.
Then follow the previous instructions.
Sorry 'bout that!!
thanks, looks like 12one blink two blinks
Ok, well...that is a good thing. 12 is the indication for 'no error'.
Now. There is a way we can pull up a menu on the screen to see a history of errors. Does your screen come on long enough for you to click MENU 3 5 6 4 on the remote?
no luck, i get to a the blue welcome screen, press menu then 3, 5, 6, 4 and it shuts offsometimes i don't get the blue screen? stays black and shuts off?
Ok. No worries.
When the TV shuts off, does the Status LED appear red?
nope, green only
The last one of these that did this had a bad main board. This error is not allowed for in the blink codes so there is no error code.
The board is roughly $500.
How old is this set?
dec 2009 how do i get this fixed?
So the TV is only a few months out of warranty.
I would call Mitsubishi, explain the problem and see what they say. They will probably tell you to replace the lamp although I do not believe that is the issue here. This is a known problem with the V41 chassis of which this set is comprised.
Bad main board. Call(NNN) NNN-NNNNSee if you can get them to meet some of the replacement cost.
