PIP means the set uses either two tuners or a dual tuner--could be a issue with the tuner. If it has a swap feature in the PIP use it to see if color when tuner is switched from main to PIP tuner.
A possible way around the issue is to look to see if rear audio/video inputs have color---you could route signal from a box etc to one of those and BYPASS the problem if rear inputs do not have this problem(not likely they will).
If it has the feature buttons on the remote for it, swap, position etc.
Some older sets have to have signal routed to one of the rear video inputs for a source for the PIP. Newer sets have two tuners--one for main and one for PIP---if pulled up the swap will switch one picture for the other--some allow both on the screen at same time side by side.
Noise is your Color Wheel and Bad Capacitors in power supply will cause Lines if you see any that are swollen,vente or puffed up on Top they are Bad
Go tyo Encompass Parts Distrubtion and type in your Model Number it will list Part number for Color Wheel and if they have any in stock 1-800-638-3328
when i was on digital cable my pip didnt work either. with sat, the box offers a pip feature. if you have basic cable or using an antanna the pip on your tv should work. maybe its just your cable or sat not allowing you to use that feature.
Ahh the old rolling picture problem. If this set has a Picture in picture feature, your problem is on the PIP module itself. There is a kit of surface mounted capacitors that need to be replaced If you have some soldering skills you should be able to do this your self, but if you do not, I advise you to get someomne who does as most of these PIP modules are not available any longer. The kit can be purchased from http://www.mcminone.com/search.asp?keyword=Mitsubishi+PIP+kit&btnSubmit.x=6&btnSubmit.y=7 Good Luck
when you say distorded, is it like a 3-d effect? or more of zig zag type lines in the picture. If there are color outlines like a 3-d effect, then you are having a convergence preakdown, and are going to need to have the convergence IC's replaced. if the problem is the piture is zagged edges and zig zag, lines or a smearing effect, most likly it is the PIP modle is going bad, and even if you dont use the PIP, the video still goes through that module. If it does not have a PIP feature, then there are bad capacitors in the sweep power supply and the problem will get progessivly worse till the set wont come on anymore. Hope this helps. Good Luck
