Mitsubishi TV problem

    Hi folks,

    I've just bought a second hand Mitsubishi TV - worked fine in the
    vendor's house, but got it home and although it will go onto standby,
    any attempt to switch it "on" and get a picture displayed results in
    it turning itself off within 1/2 second or so, and remaining
    completely off for anything up to a minute, until the whole thing
    starts again.

    Does this point to anything in particular? I'm thinking it must have
    got bashed in the car on the way back, but I really don't remember
    this happening...

    TIA for any help,

    Gov: you may want to post the model number and chassis number if available.
    Basically my guess would be some type of power supply or protect problem.
    Generally one will need to open the tele up and do some basic diagnostics
    inclusive of verifying presence of necessary standby and operating
    potentials. Also making sure that nothing got disconnected or cracked as a
    result of transporting it.

    What he said.

    Also if it's cool or cold outside it might have weal lytics. Cool them down
    enough and they act up, but they're OK when warm. If it's shutting down
    immediately there are probably weak lytics in the power supply, and it's
    possible the seller wasn't even aware of it. IT's actually possible that there
    was no damage, and really no culpability anywhere here, except maybe the

    An ESR meter would be handy about now.
