Question about Mitsubishi WS48511 48" Rear Projection Television
There is a blue ghosting effect that typically ghosts any text (scores, channel guide, etc) in a bow across the top of the screen. So there ends up being a blue bow from the top left to top right that sags down in the middle.
I tried resetting the convergence (I couldn't figure out how to try manually adjusting convergence) and that didn't help. From reading this board it looks like I may need to replace an IC or something, which I'm comfortable trying, but I wouldn't know where that part would be in the TV and such.
Thanks for any help - this is driving my parents crazy.
The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.
These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.
When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.
