Question about Mitsubishi Projection Televisions

1 Answer

I Have a Mitsubishi WS 55809 and the colors are seperated and the screen is bowed. From what I see on the internet it seems to be a convergence problem. I need to know how to fix this if I can do it myself. I really don't want to pay 4 or 500 bucks to fix it.

Convergence Problem = Defective CRT board.

1. You can order a replacement CRT board.
2. You can trouble shoot the existing CRT board.
3. You can find search for an identical television set ( use imagination ) and do a CRT board transplant.

Do not monkey around with any convergence rings.

Picture is bowed at top and bottom picture perfect in middle of screen; colors seperating in corners convergrence is perfect


Projection sets have two very common problems outlined below.

The first common problem is convergence

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. The TV can also shut down when the convergence starts to fail.

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, RCA and others.


You can more info and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from TV Repair Kits using the link at the end of this article.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped or bowed
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Mitsubishi ws-55809 distorted picture


Sounds like you are having a convergence error.
What you could do is either replace the TV or have some wires/circuits/boards replaced.
Shop around for prices.
If you're lucky you'll find someone willing to do a free estimate, as replacing anything on these will set you back a few hundred...at least.
Hopefully, in your case, the problem can be solved by tightening a screw or two.

Cannot adjust convergence on Mitsubishi RPTV


as long as there is no bowing in the picture and the color does not want to move then there is probably just a bad resistor on the convergence IC that controls the color alignment , thus the resistors would have to be tested to find the low valued resistor on the IC

Mitsubishi WS-55809


Harker, the convergence circuit has failed, IC`s and possibly a couple of support resistors, that`s a good set, call around to your local shops and get a few estimates, waay better set than the new dlp and lcd sets in my opinion, any questions? e-mail me back, Happy Holidays, BMW Rider
