Good Day;

More than likely your TV has "COOLANT" (ethylene glycol) on the circuit boards. This fluid comes from the CRT's (picture tube) this fluid is used to keep the CRT's cool, such the name. This fluid from the CRT's leak when TV is on for long periods of time, the chamber expands and the seals leak.

One can remove this fluid by using "acetone" & small brush. The fluid is hard to see, use bright light, they spots can be smaller then a DIME. Also, the fluid can corrode the parts and traces on the boards. To protect the TV in future place heavy plastic or thick cardboard over affective area, make sure TV has proper air flow around TV.

If after the fluid has been removed and TV still does not work, call an Authorized Service Center to come out and repair TV after giving you an Written Estimate. The boards are not available.

Always try resetting the TV by unplugging it for one minute then plug back into A/C outlet and ALWAYS UNPLUG TV BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY REPAIR ON THE TV.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

SOURCE: Mitsubishi WS-55315 no video present

Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

You description of "...no video but with audio..." could indicate a number of possibilities:

  • power supply section;
  • tuner
  • video amplifier/selector;
  • vertical section;
  • horizontal section .
Other ideas are:
  • Since it has still sound, then the power supply is a least likely possibility;
  • Since it has still sound, then the tuner is a secondary suspect;
  • Since the menu shows, then the vertical and horizontal would be highly unlikely.
  • which eaves us the video amplifier or electronic/soft selector as the most likely culprit.
Further diagnosis would of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Cleaning the bulbs and mirror on my Mitsubishi 55" WS-55313 TV.

You should re-consider having a tech do that for you. The access is by removing the screen assmbly which are somewhat fragile. If you want to give it a try, pull the speaker grill off, it comes off just from pulling it, there should be five screws across the bottom of the screen assy, remove those, there is also an access door on the front of the set with four screws, that has to be removed to unplug the cable that goes to the screen sensors. The screen assy has to be lifted straight up an inch or two and then you can pull it forward away from the set.
As far as cleaning the mirror and lenses, you can't get to the face of the tubes so it's the top of the lenses that you clean, just use a soft lint free cloth (cloth baby diaper) and wipe the dust off the lenses, you can slightly dampen the cloth with water if necessary, same type of cloth on the mirror and you can use a glass cleaner on it just don't press too hard on the mirror.

SOURCE: HD UPGRADE MITSUBISHI WS-55315

Check your manual, I have the same set and you need a
WD 5000 HD upgrade panel, I believe.
This TV is HD upgradeable, it is NOT HD ready, like you have
been told by other responder......

SOURCE: Mitsubishi WS-65313 Screen burn-in

IF you have the area on either side of the picture used in the 4x3 burned---it is now burnt into the phosphor of all three picture tubes this set uses.

The real problem here is most of these sets the default setting for contrast or "picture" (same thing) is 100% and this is what burns fixed images into the tubes.

Pretty stupid, but that is how they are made--the black background in later models was replaced with a light gray one to try to prevent this.

If you do not have a warranty live with it--the cost of the three tubes would be about 900 dollars plus labor to replace them and adjust the set.

It takes less than 100 hours of use with the 4x3 up to cause this kind of problem, just like putting a fixed image on any projection set with full contrast and brightness set full--the damage is permanent.

I have replaced tubes in sets like this and when you get the tube out you can see the BURN in the phosphor.

I am sorry to give you bad news but based on your description this is what you have.

If this helped you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

Was given set 2 years ago and recently had it serviced. The tech claims to have fixed the video issue but brought it back and said it was missing the fresnel lens e screen. I googled one up and went to...


you should be able to sharpen the picture yourself. most projections if you open them up you can adjust the canisters for color and sharpness. by turning them in a certain direction.

Need a screen for my 55in


I believe Mitsubishi would be the best source for the screen.
The Diamond Shield is part number 760D639020: $77.90.
But make sure the fresnel lens and everything else is in good shape first.

Mitsubishi hdtv 1080 ws-a65 screen broke need replacement


there are 2 functionality screens and 1 screen protector (on some)
front screen = lenticular
back screen = fresnel
very front screen = screen protector (you can replace w plexiglass)

the fresnel and lenticular are very specific.. contact your local repair center for a new one. you can cut them from old screens but have to do just right (fresnel is a lens type - pic will be distorted if off center)

maybe find a old junker tv to pull screens from because new ones are about $100 a piece

Ws-55315, screen turned to fuzz


If it was the lamp there should be nothing. press the menu button if the menu does not come up the issue is with the tv. If the menu does come up try a second source a dvd player or game system. If the issue is only with the original source than the original source needs to be replaced.
