Re: What is wrong and how much is it going to cost?

It sounds like the Picture in Picture PC Board. Its a little stand up type board that has a bunch of small capacitors on it and it goes bad just the way you descrbed cause its clipping the sync out of the video. I dont was told it wasent available anymore and there was a kit available to jump out the board on ebay somewhere. If you know electronics then you should have no problem locating and possibly getting a part from a shop that may still have one BUT if you dont know the insides of the TV set get a pro to assist you as theres a lot of voltage kickin around inside of a set even when its unpluged. Good Luck

Hi I have the mitsubishi WD 62525 and I have replace all the bulgy capacitor, now the tv is working, but after a few minutes the picture start distorsionated to the point that is scramble. I turned off...

You have a multitude of surface mounted capacitors that have to be changed on the DVM module which is part of the Light Engine Assembly. Mitsubishi's are notorious for this problem. Mits charges $300.00 to refurb the Light Engine Assembly , which is not a bad price.

Tv won't stay on

You need to provide more information. Does it turn itself back on? Bottom line is I don't think you are going to find an easy fix for it, most likely you will have to ship it to a service repair facility.

Now the cold truth - Most plasma TV's are very expensive to repair, and probably will cost the same as what you paid for it. Buying cheap is not always the best, next time stick with a namebrand plasma like Panasonic, Samsung, or Sony. It may cost a little bit more in the beginning but in the long run it will cost you less. There is nothing wrong with buying a cheap ILO tv, but stick with 19" system that you won't be upset with if it breaks (throw away tv)

Scrambled picture

I have the same problem here as well, except that it has been happening so long that now it doesn't get completely clear. The picture was great at one time :-(

TV picture scrambled and getting worse

This can be a fault in the tuner, IF, or primary part of the video processing. With age and use some of the parts, and especialy capacitors, in these sets can become thermo sensitive and unstable.

To service these types of faults can be very time consuming. On top of this would be the cost of the parts.

Considering the age and type of set that you have, I would suggest that it is time to be looking for a new set.

Scrambling for first 15 mins

That is the exact problem I am currently having with my toshiba 50 in. I did some reading and it sounds like there is a temperature drift across one of the capacitors on the board and it takes longer and longer to warm up. Havent fixed it yet...
