Question about Mitsubishi WS-73907 TV

1 Answer

Help, Help, Help! Mitsubishi 73" red convergence fiasco

I have an older (?) Mitsubishi WS-73907 series and cannot correct its red convergence. I have located the manual convergence feature in the menus, and can alter blue convergence fully, and can alter red convergence in the up/down direction, but NOT in the left/right direction. Every so often, for a very short period of time, the convergence will "magically" be correct, but then quickly goes back to out of whack in a complicated sinusoidal (?) pattern, with the error being zero in one location (right of center) and then progressively worse toward the sides and corners.

How can I fix this? I've been watching this giant doorstop out of focus for many weeks now, but can't stand it any more!

The tv will not stay on


If it goes out after a few minutes, it could be bad solder connections on the convergence IC's or elsewhere. If it shuts down right away, it could be a short in one of the picture tubes which would not be worth replacing. It could also be a shorted high voltage transformer which would also make it beyond economical repair. Unless the set had an exceptionally good picture, I would be inclined to replace it. If you have noticed any color "smearing" across parts of the picture -- trash it.

Double vision pops in and out


projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both.

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

The picture is sort of bent for a while now... it seems to get better when i smack it with my shoe.. or after it heats up a while... but everytime i hit with my shoe... picture is perfect again... thx


You have bad grounds on the convergence ICs. Smacking your TV with a shoe will only work so long. You will definitely need to resolder the signal board convergence IC pins, and save your shoe for other important things. You will need help with this, as this TV is too complicated to repair for the novice. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support.

Convergence is way off, Rt & Lf side of screen has red & blue around objects


Convergence IC's inside of your TV have to be replaced. Also some low value resistors around IC's could be burned as well.
Then convergence have to be realigned. This job require above-average soldering skills and cost around $300 if you hire TV repairman to do that.

Mitsubishi prjection screen WS-65908


You have a convergence problem,all this sets show this problem sooner or later,you have 2 or 3 amps for the red,green blue colors and this amps go bad and need to be replaced then you have to do a convergence aligment from the service mode and not form the customer controls,a qualified tech should be able to correct the problem since is a common one.

Mitshubishi WS-73907 won't stay on


I suspect you may have a short in the horizontal deflection circuits or High Voltage transformer. If the set had a "great" picture, it may be worth fixing providing you aren't planning to upgrade to a HDTV anytime soon, otherwise I would use this excuse to start looking for a new set. Worst case I can envision with this set would be one of the picture tubes having a Short, keeping the set from turning on. That would make it unreparable.
