Question about Mitsubishi WS-65611 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Convergence problems. I have blue shadow on my screen around and beside an image and words. When I tried to use to convergence of the blue cross it will not change. I was able to line up the red cross just fine. Do I need a new tube or something and how much will it cost? I bought my TV in Dec 2002.

Your convergence ICs are likely bad, not typically a CRT or tube going out. A repair shop will fix for $200-400 or if you are very skilled you could repair yourself.

Words have shadows and yellow is also blue ex football game yardage lines are yellow and then there is a blue line words are not sharp


Not familiar with this particular model but it should have a convergence menu. If so, try using the convergence menu (which is basically a cross pattern (possibly multiple ones) that you use as a reference to align your colors and make the cross pattern white. When you go to this menu and see the cross patterns, if you see the shadowing of the colors, you will know what I'm talking about. If this adjustment(s) don't work, you may have a problem in your convergence board circuitry. Wish I could be of more help but try the menu.....I've fixed 2 or 3 sets like this now. Good luck!

Red shadow around every image


call up the menu and look to see if words have red or 3d effect---if this is so, suspect you have a convergence problem; the set should also have a option for adjusting the convergence---some just give you a cross in the middle of the screen---if red or blue will not adjust either up/down--left/right you have a bad convergence IC----The Hitachi sets all use two IC's and Usually this repair can be done in your home----I do a lot of them here in the San Diego area where I live----have done over a hundred in the last year on all brands of sets. If you know someone who knows how to solder etc, you can (get me model number) buy both the convergence IC's on Ebay for under 15 dollars plus shipping; some internet places offer a kit with the IC and whatever other parts might be needed; usually this is a waste as most of the time only the IC's and maybe one or two resistors around them are gone.

Shadowing words and figures


Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.

Problem #1 - Failure in the convergence circuits. ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem


  • 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.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

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.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed. Notice how dull the colors are and how white the screen looks. The screen may also look red, orange, dull, etc.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

Screen hazzy and issue with blue convergence


bad convergence would cause show to look as if it was supposed to be a 3-d movie, if a bulb was going out then people would look purple blue -green,or some other off color, so likely the green bulb is going out from the color of the people you described.

Not sure, but looks like blue and red shadows around words on the screen


Al, bring up your convergence grid (look in menu for it) and I think you`ll find that the set is out of convergence, if you can adjust the red up & down and the blue up & down your ok, if they won`t move in one or both directions the convergence IC`s will have to be changed out, hope this helps, BMW Rider
