Mitsubishi wd-60638 won't turn on

Postby Rooks » Thu Feb 18, 2016 1:15 am

Sooo last Tuesday I heard pop and smelled burning electrical , ordered a new bulb ( Philips not knock off) got it in last night . disconnected the panel and took out the broken bulb and installed a new one.

Plugged unit in factory reset the set via holding power for 10 seconds and pressed the power button. Nothing... rechecked all the connections and tried power again. Stuck my head behind the TV and could hear the low whine of electricity when power button was pressed.

No green light at all set is just dead at this point. So apart from picking random parts to replace what should my next step be?

It sounds like the ballast is not putting out the proper voltage to ignite your new lamp. If your TV is anywhere near 5 yrs or older this is common.

Remember Knowing Is Half The Battle !
