Mits VS-45605 Picture Jumping - See video

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.

    I just got the Mits VS-45605 given to me and it looks identical to the youtube video posted above. Is it a difficult thing to repair? Can I find a step by step process with pictures that would walk me through repairing it?

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 :)

A FixYa is a good reward for my time to extend this advice to you. If you have more questions, I am also happy to attempt to answer them for you. Cheers

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??

This is a case of bad capacitors in the PIP (picture in picture) module. If you have any electronics repair experience, you should be able to do the repair yourself. Here is some more detailed instructions:

No Picture on Mitsubishi v45605 rear projection tv

If it works the way you have it setup now, leave that way. Plug all your video sources to the denon if possible and leave it that way.
If the denon has the feature to change channels like a cable converter then you can use it or if you still have a VCR you can also use it as a tuner just to tune the cable channels and use the audio/video outputs from it to the TV or denon receiver.
The tuner might not even be available anymore and if it's, is expensive.
Good Luck.

Picture has horiz. lines

There is no vertical hold in the tv circuits now adays. You may find a vertical center or a vertical height. Your problem sounds like (if it has PIP Thats Picture in Picture) its in the PIP module and its a small module that stands up and most models of Mistubishi this module is no longer availabvle. The problem with the module is the small pana caps are leaking and ruins the PC traces. I have heard that theres a kit available on E-Bay to jump out this module. Now if its not the PIP model then it could be a few capacitors in the vertical sweep circuit. Also the B+ feed off the Flyback that supplies voltage to the vertical output IC could have a bad or leaky capacitor in the circuit. If your not a tech or solid state troubleshooter theres not much you can do and SHOULD take this set in to a repair center. Good Luck
