Mitsubishi 55 inch picture problem

Hello,

I have a problem with my 55 in rear projection mitsu. I turn it on and I get a 3d effect after about 1-2 minutes of watching the tv. When it is shut off for a few minutes about 3-4 minutes and I turn it back on it is fine for the 1-2 minutes again and go back to 3d. I did notice that I still get okay color but it does only seem to have 2 colors. I have not tried to line up the colors yet due to I have never done it befor and would have to find my remote to do it. I was just wondering if I might have another issue going on with the tv.

Thanks

    I have the exact same problem. I hope someone out there knows what part I need to fix this. I had it fixed once before, but like a dummy I didn't pay attention to what the technician did.

    Same exact problem as above. After a few minutes the screen gets all screwey and the colors appear not to be converged. It also seems to gets worse at it moves out toward the edges. I tried the convergence settings in the advanced menu but it didn't help.

    I have the same problem you describe. When I rock the TV gently back and forth it is corrected. Sometimes it works fine for hours. I have read it may be a bad solder joint and can be fixed.

That is an easy fix. There are bad solder joints in the convergence unit and line stage. For an experienced engineer, about 20minutes will find them all.

SOURCE: Mitsubishi vs 5051 rear projection tv sound but no picture

No video but good audio Mitsubishi VS5051. Check R509 and R 519, 100 ohm resistors located on the main PCB near the flyback transformer. Also bad connections on any of the yokes and the vertical output IC will cause the same problem.

SOURCE: TV screen goes blank but power stays on

Sounds like the CRTs are going into protective blanking due to the vertical output ic needing to be resolderd. Try resoldering the vertical IC that may possibly fix the issue.

you probably have a problem with the convergence board.

SOURCE: blinking green timer light on front nearpower button keeps blinking, tv will not turn on, unplugged for 24 hours and tried again, also hit system reset and still nothing.

Thats a common problem when the caps on the DM need replacement. They will function fine untill power is interupted then the set will not complete the boot sequence when power is reapplied and the led will just continue to blink. Hers a link to the kit that will usually repair that issue the kit comes with instructions.

Out of focus


You have a convergence problem, probably the convergence electronics are going out or the TV has been violently moved and needs a mechanical alighnment. Small adjustments can be made from the menu.
