hi everyone, i'm new to the shack. i have a question. my mitsu ws-65315 turned itself off one morning, not to turn on again. it powers up for a few secs then shuts down. the error code i get is 2-1. it is from 2004 with no problems in the past. i see no evidence of coolant leaking. any idea of a cause? is it even worth repairing? thanks for your time and help.

From what I have found googling, that error code is X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current). Leonard may know better than me but that sounds a bit iffy for a diy repair. I'd take a look at http://www.tvrepairpros.com/ and see if there's anyone in your area that can possibly fix it for you. See if they can give an estimate based upon the error code and then you can decide if it's worth the trouble or not.

Welcome to HTS. :T

Good advice if you have an x-protect error. Most DIYers would not be able to troubleshoot these and there are not enough trends on these to recommend a symptom/repair fix. Are you sure it is not a 1-2 code?

thanks for the helpful insight, guys. i recently left it unplugged for over 24 hrs to see if that would get me anywhere. she powers up right until you can 'hear' the crts fire, and then shuts down. then it gives the 2-1 error upon self-diagnosis. i have not come across this behavior in my efforts to research this problem. i will keep you posted. again, thanks for your time and help.

These sets use a reference voltage that gets compared to a sample voltage that represents the high voltage in the set. If the two are far enough apart you get protection. It can be either the reference supply, the HV, or the circuit that compares the two. You need the service manual, an understanding of the circuit, and the ability to measure the voltages as the set tries to come up. A storage scope is ideal, but a good dvm with peak hold will usually do.
