TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician for Answers ASAP
I have a Mitsubishi WS-65907 (65" Diamond Series 1080i). Yesterday the TV would not turn on. The green power light would light for approximately one second and then go out. I could hear what sounded like a relay click when the power light turned on and again when it went out. The TV shows error code 22.
The TV has been unplugged for two days. I did as you instructed, but no change. TV will not turn on.
The service manual has a 2001 copyright. Either 2001 or 2002.
I would like to point out that I am not receiving email notifications of your responses. Which is why my replies are delayed.
What I can actually use at this point is help finding the parts (I already had the other information). The direct replacement fuses are proving to be difficult to find at a reasonable price. $17 for one fuse is ridiculous, especially when the IC's can be purchased for $10 each. I believe I should be able to do this whole job for less than $40 as compared to the $79 that tvrepairkits.com is asking (I can do the soldering).
The part list for one of the Pico fuses looks like this:
ref # part # part name & description
F9A03 283P043090 FUSE - LF251 5A
I located 5 amp Pico II fuses for only $4.37 for a pack of 5. They are 125 volt, 5 second max. Would these fuses work or do I need the direct replacement Motorola brand fuses? The schematic shows voltages of 5V, 5VS,12V, 12VS, 17V, -24V, 24V and 110V.
One last thing. How long would it take for the high voltage to dissipate once the TV is unplugged? (it will be unplugged for more then a week before I work on it).
I don't mean to be difficult, but you didn't answer my question. To be VERY blunt I was able to find all the information you have thus far provided by doing a google search and doing a little reading (no cost). My loss. I will provide the requested evaluation (5 star) when my question is answered (see below for final question).
What I am not able to determine, without a great deal of reading, is if the Pico fuses I mentioned in my last post are comparable to the ones listed on the Mitsubishi parts list. If they are I can buy all the parts I need for less then $40 (including shipping) which is a savings of almost $39 over what tvrepairkits.com is asking. As far as instructions go there is an excellent video online which covers the parts replacement. They are series 251 Pico II fuses rated at 125 volt, with a 5 second max.
Looking forward to finishing this transaction. Also looking forward to receiving the new 70" 3D TV I am buying to replace the outdated Mitsubishi.
