Question about Mitsubishi WS-65809 65" Rear Projection Television

4 Answers

Picture Problem The TV is 7 years old. It now blinks shortly after turning it on and the picture bebomes concave. The numbers and letters appear to have a ghost image in red and green. Any crawl at the bottom of the screen (ESPN) also looks concave. It happens intermittently. Sometimes it blinks again and comes back to normal, sometimes it takes 3-5 minutes. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    I had the same problem, then it just went out completely. Now I had to contact a repair company which is very expensive. sux

    I have the same problem. It started out fixing itself in a few minutes and has progressed to warped all the time. The bottom is warped and the three colors shadow themselves mostly in the lower left corner of the screen. What repairs were made on these other 5 sets?

    Same here guys. Had this TV for about 7 years and it just started the concave picture with RGB scatter at the bottom corners. It comes and goes and is getting progressively worse. There must be some fix for this.

Take a look at this video and determine weather you have a true convergence problem or you may just need to adjust convergence with your TV's original remote.

Hope this helps!

TV will not come on.

The 7 blinks indicate a high voltage shutdown (high voltage exceeded 33,000V). This is usually caused by a defective regulator. Could you please post the exact model number (KVxxx) and I'll look up the part you will likely need?

No picture but has sound

The problem can be caused by a bad sustain board (Ysus Zsus) , the popping sound is often caused by a capacitor blowing up.
The TV must be taken apart and tested before eventually replacing sustain boards.
