2,2 error is short protection in this model.

WHAT IT MEANS IS ONE OF THE TWO FUSES THAT PROTECT THE CONVERGENCE CIRCUIT IS BLOWN; This model uses 2 of the STK-392-570 CONVERGENCE chips---

I have photos of the fuses etc--fuses and chips are located on the middle circuit board which would have to be removed to repair. I also have step by step start to finish instructions for this repair in this model.

If the parts needed are purchased on EBAY (I can tell you the name of a seller there) total parts cost is under 25 dollars and repair takes about one hour.

Many shops will not do this repair in the home and most will get 250 plus for it not counting pickup and delivery.

How handy are you? I can post the instructions and photos here if you respond to this answer by "add a comment".

Sounds like an issue with the DM pcb. most likely some small electrolytic capacitors. you will need to remove DM pcb & take cover off. look for capacitors with bulging tops. note the values & location & replace all capacitors with bulging tops.

IF power light comes on and a few seconds later goes off, do the self check this model has.

On front of set when this happens, press and hold both the menu and input (device) buttons at the same time for at least 5 seconds and then release both buttons.

Watch the power light closely, it should blink a two digit error code like; 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and then repeat it several times.

Let me know what error code you find and I will tell you what it means.

You have come to the right person:

all parts in this model for the convergence are located on middle board.

If set comes on and shuts off (green power light goes out) do the self check: press and hold (you may know or have done this) both the menu and input buttons for at least 5 seconds and release both.

Power light will blink a 2 digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks a pause and repeat it several times.

That is short protect and a 98% chance one or both (usually one) of the two pico fuses that protect the convergence circuit have blown.

I will add some photos here one of the single IC this set uses for this, one of the protect resistors in front and to one side of it, and one showing the pico fuses (ones for the chip are circled)

A note= I have fixed a lot of these and have composed instructions which are based on doing it---tell you everything you will need and how to do the repair from start to finish--step by step.

I will not post them here as other experts will copy them and I spent some real time composing them.

If you want they are free--provide me a email address and I will forward them to you for free.

I have fixed almost a thousand of these sets (Mitsubishi) with this problem.

Copy and save the photos and let me know (you can post a comment here) if you have questions or want the instructions.

hi,
Your tv have problem with Digital module DM board. there seven filter capacitors (1000uf 16V ) in the DM board. if any one of it is faulty the this problem can occur. its a regular complaint for this model. just replace the capacitor. i have added the picture of the DM board you have to replace the marked capacitors . Also check the two fuses in the same board 4Amps fuse and 2Amps fuse.

If power light does come on and a few seconds later it goes off---do the self check that the WS65909 MITSUBISHI should have:

On the front of the set press and hold both the MENU and INPUT(OR DEVICE) BOTH FOR 5 SECONDS AND THEN RELEASE BOTH BUTTONS.

Power light should blink a two digit code--error code---for example: 2 blinks, a pause and 2 blinks.

Let me know what code you get----it will repeat it several times---and I will tell you what it means.

Pincussion or convergence problem. Look in the menu for convergence and call up the advanced grid.

Mitsubishi... | Answered on Dec 22, 2012


Thats the code which normally indicates a convergence failure you can get the WS55909 - WS65909 Convergence repair kit which also has instructions from www.tvrepairworld.com its listed under the Mitsubishi repair kits catagory.

Mitsubishi... | Answered on Oct 27, 2012


If you get the 2,2 error code that is short protection

If you get the 2,1 error code that is X-ray protection

The 2,2 is most common and the easier one to fix.


If in doubt--unplug set and plug back in and try to turn on, when power light goes out do the self check again (unplug clears the error codes)

let me know actual code found and I will help---hope it is 2,2.

This model uses a single convergence chip that after age fails.

I will attach some photos of the part, and also typical convergence problems.

The repair can be a do it yourself job if someone can solder etc.

The suspect part if it is a convergence problem is a SKT393-110(ABOUT A 15 DOLLAR PART ON EBAY).

If you are able I have start to finish step by step instructions for this repair that tell you everything you will need and how to do the repair.

Look at the photos and let me know.

No two sets will look exactly the same but the photos should tell you if it is a convergence trouble or not.

if can not get with manual adjustment in the set up menu, then you have problem either the convergence ic get bad or the resistor get an open resistance.

ONLY 1 of 2 things can cause this problem----

First thing to do is remove front speaker grill--it should pull out and issecured with plastic pegs--behind it you will find an inspection plate---

Notice the one or two pairs of wirescoming from the front keyboard of the set---remove the inspection plate andfollow the wires to the right--you can unplug both plugs(most have two and theyare marked with letters and different s so you cannot get them wrong)

The idea here is to remove the front keyboard with its reset button etc fromthe circuit---You will still be able to try to turn the set on with theremote---

These sets have a Receiver that is called a DM board--(large metal box to theleft as you look from the back) and if the power goes out the green light willblink for about 70 seconds and then go out---it is the Receiver booting up. Itis called the DM board.

If disconnecting the keyboard allows the set to turn on--you have a bad resetswitch and two choices---either operate the set only with the remote or toremove the front screen and get at the reset switch (it is tiny) and removeand/or replace it.

If disconnecting the keyboard does not restore the set to operation---thereceiver is bad---there are 4 or more caps and some pico fuses that can fail inthat unit---Mitsubishi no longer sells or repairs these--if it is bad and notthe caps there is a company you can send the unit to and have it repaired--ifyou need to know their name let me know---

You can call them and get a quote for repairing the receiver.
