Mitsubishi WS-65809 Dim Lamp

My picture is very blue. I took the back off, the blue lamp is very bright, the green is less bright, the red lamp doesn't even project color onto my hand holding it over the lamp. If I look down into the lamp I see it is illuminated though.

    Thanks BIG IRISH, I am somewhat handy so I'll give it a try. What's a PCB though? And is there a way you can determine that coolant has leaked out and if so, what would you need to replace?

Good Day, cantseewhat;
It sounds like your TV has a problem. It could be and most likely be CRT Coolant on the circuit boards. If you handy, then clean PCB's with acetone on areas which fluid appear. If not handy call aN Authorized Sevice Center and have them give you a written estimate B4 repairs. Cost $450.00 to 650.00 depending on your location. Good Luck, big IRISH.

My Mitsubishi WS-65809 turns on and then off after about a miniute, the lamp light turns red


I think some confusion here, The model indicated is a WS series set does not use a lamp but has three picture tubes and the power light should be green on this model (ie no lamp light).

I have a Mitsubishi WS-65809 that I am having convergence problems with. The Red and Blue appear fine but the Green is the problem. The Green bows down on the bottom and up on the top. I have replaced the...


Your convergence has failed and needs to be repaired. Once quick test is to goto your convergence menu and see if you can adjust red and blue. If not its has failed and needs to be fixed. You can call in a repair shop or you can get the parts and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com and do the repair yourself. Its a fairly easy DIY fix.

Convergence is off - Blue and Red are fine Green will not line up


On most units, the Green is constant and the Red and Blue are adjustable. Here are 2 links on how to manually adjust the convergence. There is a menu option using the remote control. Once there, you will find step by step procedure on how to adjust the convergence. Hope this helps answer your question. All the best!

Mitsubishi lamps


This set does have a lamp, it utilizes 3 picture tubes (red, green, blue) The tubes are not available as new any longer. It is recommended to replace all 3 after the reaches 5yrs of age because a new tube will over drive the others in brightness but it is possible to only replace the defective one. You can try Tritronics at 800-638-3328 for rebuilds.
