Question about Mitsubishi VS-45609 TV

1 Answer

Convergence board About two months ago my mother in law turned off my Mitsubishi VS-45609 45" projection television during a lightning storm. When we turned it back on the color in the screen was off. We have red lines and "ghosting" in the picture. My first thought was to check the menu for video settings but none of these fixed my problem. My husband called the manufacturer who said the convergence board was bad. I called the manufacturers parts line to order a new one and they do not have a listing for the part. She said the convergence unit may be on a board with other components in the television. I dont know anything about televisions. Please help me get my T.V. fixed we miss it terribly.

    This is interesting, as I have a Mitsubishi VS-45609 TV that I bought back in 2003 and have had to replae the convergence board on the system every other year .....The retailer (Ultimate Electronics) indicated that this is a very common need on all Mitsubishi VS-45609 units......unfortuately, the problem has rsurface agian and this year we no longer carry the manufacturer or extended warrantly...Mitsubishi will not stand behind this "lemon" aspect of this TV and claims that there have not been that many reported instances.....Buyer Beware !!

    How dificult is it to change the convergence board on a 65" Mitsubishi? Thanks



1 Answer

It wouldn't be the entire convergence board, you more than likely have a bad convergence STK-IC. Replacing the IC will take a good bit of knowledge and training as far as electronic repair is concerned, plus a complete convergence set up. In other words, unless your certified, you need to contact a tech. The convergence set up alone has driven men to drink.....

Mitsubishi VS 360RA TV tuner

I've got one of those, too. Tuner's been out since 1997 from lightning storm. Tuner was not available then,not available now. It's an ancient beast-- you won't find parts for it--not worth $20, anyway.
