Question about Mitsubishi WS-48513 48" Rear Projection Television

Rolling horizontal black bar 1" tall on the tv screen

There is a horizontal rolling black bar about 1" tall that seems to go from bottom to top on the tv screen. resetting the tv seems to help for a while, but the problem reoccurs after about a minute. with the dvd on and all other inputs shut off, the problem is still there.

    the rolling black horizontal bar is still there. i exposed the inside of the tv. it is a mitsubishi rear projection 48" hdtv. i kept the tv on and noticed no excess heat. i used compressed air cans and cleaned the inside of the tv. other than the rolling black bar, there are no other issues. this time i removed all inputs from the tv and put my outside antenna on and ended up with the same results. i was going to try and clean the projector lenses, but they are enclosed.

It is not possible to diagnose it without a hands on investigation. It could be ICs; I am not doubting that, but it must be determined by an actual investigation. Check out the Integrated Circuit (IC) Capacitor and Transistor on both on CRT board.

    I can give you an idea of bigger capacitors as I don't have specific pictures of this model.
    Below picture shows bigger capacitors.





    Hope this info will help you to locate power capacitors and their value will be approx 1000UF 250V

This is a problem with heating of some components of the TV inside it.

i would suggest you to look inside the unit and check for components with high heat

    actually after what time does the unit shut down??

  • dewan nafees ahmed Oct 02, 2008

    attempt to locate the horizontal hold circuit and replace the defective compoents like lekaing capacitors

    1. Unplug the TV. Avoid as many electronic devices as possible while
    going through this entire process. Observe proper ESD practices.

    2. Unplug cables from TV. If you have more than one input, you might want to mark these, so you're not guessing later.

    3.
    Remove back brown panel from TV (approximately 12 screws). Remove front
    speaker grill. This is attached with plastic "pop-ins". Sitting in
    front of the TV, pull the outside bottom of the grill on each side at
    the same time. The panel should pop out so you can remove it.

    4.
    Remove the front black panel (six or eight screws). BE CAREFUL, reach
    in and untie the wires from the twisties (pictured in previous posts).
    You will need the slack from the wires to pull out the tray. You should
    find yourself untying about 10 twisties.

    6. The three main
    cards are mounted in a tray that can slide out. Remove three-four black
    screws (app. 3” long) from the outside trim that holds down the tray.
    There is a bracket attached (triangle shaped) to the cable connection
    board that also needs to be removed (back of TV).

    7. There
    are two, small black teeth on the front of the tray under the screen.
    Those should be pushed up with the finger. Making sure you don't pull
    any of the wires too tight, work the tray out from the TV. Please go
    slow on this. If you feel some tension, there is a wire you did not
    untie.

    8. Once the tray has slid out enough to do your work,
    Remove the board mounting screws. There were three on the back, two on
    the front, and one in the middle. There is a silver box on the left on
    the card (approx. 5"x1"x4") that the two mounting screws needed to be
    removed.

    9. Remove the bracket (three screws) that press the
    chips to the heat sink. Remove the three screws from the heat sink that
    mount to the board. You should feel the board loose. If it is not, you
    missed a mounting screw.

    10. Pop the white cable connectors
    up by using a small flat screwdriver on the side with a small lip.
    Remove the rest of the jumpers. u will not need to label these, as they
    were unique in size, and/or had unique labeling on them. You may want
    to label them to be safe.

    11. Remove the board and do the
    deed. It is to your
    advantage to find a friend, coworker, neighbor, etc. who is experienced
    with soldering to at least help look over what you do.

    also this must help you

    also this

    thank you

    hope that must help.

    please post back with your results

    thank you

SHARP AQUOS 46INCH CANT GET A FULL PICTURE ONLY IF I USE ZOOM WILL THE SCREENBE FULL


Hi Anthony,

You're describing what is called letterbox and pillerbox. Letterboxing is when there are two horizontal bars - one at the top and one at the bottom of the screen with a wide picture between. Pillerbox is when there are two vertical bars - one on the left edge and one on the right edge of the screen with a tall picture between.

The settings on your TV (and on your cable box, satellite box, DVD player, etc.) tell the TV how to display a picture that will not fill the screen completely. If the program source (an older video-taped TV show, non-widescreen version DVD, etc) was not originally "shot" or saved in widescreen format, the TV offers you a choice on how to display the image. They ask if they should stretch or zoom to fill the screen (and you have to deal with the skinny / tall images or lost portions of the picture); or maintain the aspect ratio (not stretching or zooming) by leaving a part of the screen blank (grey or black) by inserting bars left and right or top and bottom of the screen.

Start out by telling the devices that send pictures in a format that matches you TV's screen ratio. I am assuming you've got a wide screen HDTV which would mean it should be set to "16 x 9" (a.k.a. 16:9) ratio display. If you have it set for 4 x 3 (a.k.a. 4:3) you should change it. Look for a setting on your TV that asks about stretching, zooming, etc. as this will be an issue when receiving picture from an off air antenna on your house when a TV station is airing an older, non-wide screen format TV show or movie.

TV signals provided by Cable TV or Satellite provider must be HDTV type signals. If you have the standard TV service (non-HD) no picture sent by them will ever fill the screen. This is because Standard Definition TV (SDTV) is not capable of those types of signals. You will have to bump up your subscription to HDTV service to get full screen pictures.

I hope this helps!

Try your cable box on a different tv set and also try connecting the cable directly into the t.v, if that makes no difference then your tv set may have a power supply problem that was caused by an a.c line surge during that storm.

This TV needs a service adjustment done. Looks like a vertical or horizontal IC is failing. I'd go ahead, and shut off until services adjustment is made. Have you unplugged for a few minutes and plugged back in? However, I'd have a service tech look at it.

Dvd's aren't fitting my screen, the sides and top/bottom is being cut of. I've tried the display menu, zoom, and making it widescreen, and it doesn't work.


Are you playing wide-screen movies on a 4x3=1.33:1 (standard=SD) TV? DVD output by default is SD. Even 16x9=1.78:1 (HD) movies with have top and bottom bars. Many "wide-screen" DVDs are squeezed horizontally so that you have to stretch them. Many theatrical releases are up to 2.7:1 or so. Side bars indicate you have the DVD output set for 4x3 and your TV is HD-like. There are usually controls for the screen format on HD TVs--no controls on SD TV. Hey, early movies were 1:1--take them side bars. More on aspect ratio (AR) in Wiki, I bet. With letterbox of SD you can get "pillar box" with black on all 4 side. Get a better source and/or choose a different AR. -Ken

Screen split with black bar through center, top of picture shows in bottom


It sounds as you desribe, the vertical output IC and or the b+ feed capacitor off the Hi voltage transformer feeding the vert. IC its required voltage. Not a really hard job to replace, but not for a handi person to do. This should be left to the professional, as there are no user serviceable parts inside this set and with the HI voltage and the safety issues its best to call somesone to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
