Question about Mitsubishi VS-45605 50" Rear Projection Television
I have a Mits SV-45605. It was built in 1999. The picture jumps almost in a circular pattern. Here is a video link of the current picture.
What is the problem with this television? Could it be a problem with the PIP card that can be bypassed. I have looked at the capacitors and they are not bulging though I have not checked them with a meter.
Yes, it is a Ms. Pacman game video you'll be looking at.
Thanks for you help and comments.
Hi Jim and seirig
The PIP module(problematic with this model) can be removed and bypassed, there are guys on ebay selling kits to do this. You probably DO have capacitor problems in the vertical stages(as is the problem with the PIP module also). They do not always "bulge" as an indicator of failure. Often they just leak out. If the bulge occurs about a safety vent stamped into the top of them means they have overheated, and the stamped vent is meant to rupture to prevent them from exploding. If there is any white residue on the board or corrosion about any caps, this is casued by them venting on the bottom side instead, then they have failed. if they move about easily then their connecting legs, they may have corroded off up inside the can of the cap itself. Sometimes they can appear physically AOK, and be faulty. Checking them with a meter is really the only sure way of determining a caps worthiness. It is a common problem with any electronics these days. They just dont build them to last. Surface mount capcitors actually have a shelf life even in storage!! Replacing all the caps in a stage to resolve a problem like this is often gives the best result. One failing cap can put pressure on others, and the overheating issue may reoccur. Best to get quality brand parts to replace failed caps. These guys are everywhere in the world, and easy to navigate, just search for you part :)

It is caused by some overheating. I solved the problem by placing a fan (small) in the rear of the case. I run it when the unit is on and all of the lines disappear. Turn the fan off and they reappear. Simple, eh??
