I have a WS65809 TV built in 2001. When I press the power button, a light that says timer comes on for a few seconds, then goes off. TV won't power up.
Hello,How old is the set?Does the timer light blink fast? I assume it blinks green. Regards,Pramit
built in 2001. Light doesn't blink, steady green for about 2-3 seconds. I was wondering if it has a circuit that cuts off if the bulb burns out?
Pressing the front panel “DEVICE” and “MENU” buttons at the same time, and holding for 5 seconds,activates the Error Code Mode. The LED flashes denoting a two digit Error Code, or indicating no problemhas occurred since the last Initialization.Let me know the error code. Have you tried unplugging the set for 4-5 hours? Also try different power outlets(without the surge protector, if you are using any)
There is no device button on the front. Has been unplugged for several days, no change. Steady green light by timer for 3 seconds. Just plugged directly into outlet, no change.
Try INPUT instead of DEVICE. Let me know how it goes.
Green light blinks, for about 10 seconds, then nothing.
Did you notice any sequence, for eg 1-2 or 4-4 etc.
The problem is with the DM module. Usually replacing the 6 1000microfarad caps fix it. But sometimes the DM module needs to be replaced or worked on a bit more. Other parts that are to be checked are Horizontal output transistor(HOT) and flyback. You can click here to have an idea about fixing it. It is not of your model but a similar one. Flyback is used to generate high voltage to control the movement of electron beam in the CRT. Horizontal output transistor drives the flyback. These parts are not recommended to be replaced by end-user without proper skills and schematics as these sets have high voltage in them and need to worked on very carefully. Also sometimes the HOT gets shorted again and again even after getting replaced if they are not placed carefully on the heat sink. If you want to repair it yourself then you should be having proper knowledge about the internal circuitry of the TV.You should also require a multimeter and soldering equipments and schematics. I'm sorry there is no easy fix or press-a-button fix. This is an internal failure. If you wish to take it to a repair shop it would cost you around $350(unless it is a weak CRT). You can use http://national.citysearch.com/ and search for "TV Repair"(without quotes) in your area. Or you can use http://www.tvrepairpros.com/Now it depends on how long you have used the set, because that will help you determine whether to repair or replace the set. If the set has never shown any problems earlier then I'd say repairing could be worth it. If you have any queries then I would be glad to assist you further. Now I know this is not the best answer, but like I said, there is no easy fix as this is internal failure.
