Question about Mitsubishi WS-48311 48" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Component color turns yellow

When my Mits WS-48311 is in component 1 or 2 the color is fine for alittle bit then part of the color goes out and everything turns mostly yellow.Once I change out of the component to ant. the color is fine. However, after a while I go back to the component the color is back to normal. I have tried adjusting the contrast with no avail.I tried changing the blue and red with no luck. I also have the TV reset to factory spects and still did not correct the problem. Any ideas on what the issue could be?

    It is hard to discribe. I guess it is like the color goes out but not completely. It is like the screen has a tent to it but not black and white.

    I am having the same problem, but it looks like I put on a pair of yellow sun glasses... I still see some colors, but there is a yellow tint to the entire screen

What I am trying to hook up is a Wii console using component cable but get black and white image on a Mitsubishi WS-65313 65 inch Television?

Follow the color code green for green, red for red, blue for blue, ignore the yellow wire, also be aware that there is an audio cable that is red also that wire goes into the Right channel audio and the white wire goes to the Left channel audio

Mitsubishi WS-48311 projection model. It started turning off for no reason and I would turn it back on while watching a program. Then it went off and will on come back on. Then you press the power button...


This model has a known defect. The power supply board and DM boards have failed electrolytic capacitors. No spares are available from the factory. Fortunately there are after market repair kits available. I have a tip at which explains the problem as well as where to get parts.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

My WS-48311 has a pink screen for all imputs. Ive tried everthing and still wont go away. It does show it is in 480i in upper left corner and I cannot change that to 1080i. Any ideas?

You can't change the resolution higher if that's what the broadcast is sending. You can try the RGB component inputs, that will leave it wide open for what ever they send and max resolution your set can handle.

High Definition--WS-55807

IF the MITS has 3 component inputs blue red yellow RCA jacks on the back then yes at 480 or 720p, you'll need to attach 2 audio cables for sound. If it has a HDMI input then absolutely.

Bad color

Turn the color level all the way down and see if you have a good black and white picture. If your screen isnt black and white it should have a predominate tint to it. then turn the screen control for that color down to achieve the best black and white picture. then adjust your color level that should help.
