Question about Mitsubishi WS-55819 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Screen going black

I have a 1995 Missubishi Big Screen Model # VS-4551A Serial # P509756
When watching, the screen will go black and flash rainbow colors from the center to the sides. It reminds me of the cover to the album Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd. When this happens, it usually stays black, but may on occasion flicker and return to tv show; but not for long. Can this be repaired? Would repairs cost more than the television is worth? Thank you!

It sounds like the set is loosing high voltage to the 3 crt's. This usually ends up being an expensive repair, if the parts are still available. A new, or at least newer, set might be money better spent.

Not sure on that one. My local repair guru tells me the 6043's are constantly having problems. I've got one that I'm looking for board parts for, so if you end up not wanting to fix yours, I'd love to get your board set for some parts.

Mitsubishi TV Model Number VS-4551A - A black box is appearing on the screen. There is a picture and sound but you can't see the picture because of the black box.


go to menu
find the option:
close captions:
the feature TEXT is on, just turn it off.
text is a feature included in most of the tv menu but is not really used by broadcasting companies to send text on it.
If you cannot find the option in your tv. refer to your user's manual to get the right instructions to find this feature in your tv and turn it OFF.
