Mitsubishi 50605 Convergence Board - Replacement?

Turned on my TV the other day, and it shut off after a few seconds. It wouldn't turn on for a few minutes, and when it did, I got a major convergence issue. I'm told I need a new convergence board - does anybody know where I can get one, and how difficult is it to replace?:

    Thanks for the offer - I can solder, and I am comfortable working inside the set.

    I have a similar problem as others who have written in. When I turned on the set, it would turn off immediately. After several times of turning it on quickly, the set stayed on, but there was seperation of the color images and some distortion on the sides, similar to the picture posted under convergance problems.

    I can also perform basic soldering as I am an EE.

    We received a mitsubishi vs50603 from a friend who upscaled to one of the newer plasma tvs. We did not receive an instruction manual with it and do not know anything about this tv. When I hooked up a rabbit eared antenna to it all I got was a blue screen and sometimes a faint conversation. The friend told us we needed to reboot it but we do not know how. We do not want to mess the tv up. Please tell us how to get an instruction manual and we can take it from there if this tv is a keeper or a loser. Thank you

Replacing the whole board will fix it, but is a bit of overkill. If you can solder and feel comfortable working inside the set, you can fix this yourself. Let me know if you wish to attempt the repair and I'll proviode additional details and instructions.

    Seems like my earlier post didn't make it. I've been away for a day. I'll look the specifics and update this tomorrow with the parts and instructions.

Hour glass cannot adjust red horizontal convergence

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture
