Our 55" Mitsubishi CRT projection TV, model WS-55315, no longer turns on after the power flickered during hurricane/tropical storm Sandy. It was off at the time and I don't think there was a surge - everything else in the house, including my computer which was on, is fine and the TV is surge projected. I walked downstairs to find the TV off with no power light (as normal), but it would not turn on with the remote or the button on the front. I unplugged it and then plugged it back in which caused the power light on the TV to light up, but there is no picture or sound. It does not respond to any input so pressing the power button won't turn the power light off and I can't read any codes. I pulled the access panels and the tubes are not lighting up at all nor do I hear a "click" or any sign of the TV coming on. All the fuses (normal & the numerous pico fuses tested in circuit) tested fine. I can't find any sign of bulging caps or burnt resistors/ICs/etc. Any ideas? I have a multimeter and an old analog oscilloscope if that's helpful.

Thanks!

Although Mr. Bob, the resident CRT RPTV guru, might see your post anyway, I suggest posting this on the Don't Dump Your CRT RPTV thread.

Hope you came through Hurricane Sandy alright in all other respects.

Thanks for the tip, I'll post it in there too. I was lucky and Hurricane Sandy didn't hit my area very hard, so everything else is fine. I feel for those in NJ/NYC though!

Mr. Bob should be called Dr. Bob. When he checks in to the forum, he'll give you the straight facts, and he can help you repair it if you need it.

Good luck.

I love my WS 65813. A lot of people don't know how good these retro TVs are.

Hi,
did you ever get a response on this. My Mitsubishi is doing the exact same thing as yours. As of last week oddly enough.
Thanks!
