Question about Mitsubishi WS-65905 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Our family needs you.Mostly my kids.

I like to tinker with everything, but a large investment like this one, is not for the fainted heart. Picture this: If you were to watch a plastic screen and you suddenly bend the right and left side in, the middle looks okay but a littles streched out. In addition, the green and red colors are not linning up correctly. It looks like a double image. Since "" good Guy's" went out of business, we no longer have warranty. We have Had regular maintanance up until last year. Irecently opened the front panel to blowout and vacum all dust, but I did not touch a thing. All the cleaning was done after the Televioson stopped working properly. I hope you can help, and appreciate your kind wisdom. Thank You, Ricky

Very common problem with this set. The convergence IC's both need to be replaced. if your not a tech with solid state soldering experience I would seek out a trained service person to assist you in this repair.

Poor picture (faint)

I assume you have played with the color option in the settings. this set has different settings like theater, sports ..etc. that can hinder the black in the picture. Also I would do an auto focus as well to get everything lines up..

I have a Samsung HCL652W, the convergence is way off and I am unable to adjust it enough to make the picture viewable. It looks very 3D. What part would need replaced to fix this?

True convergence problem. The crt's use electromagnets and magnets for alignent of the electon beam. Magnets are physical alignment and the electro magnets are vis remote. The kids juming is a key element. I would suggest unplugging the tv and let it set 24hrs to discharge. Discharging the tv is critical. The picture tubes hold a significant charge and should be respected!!

What you are describing is a loose or marginal connection. Kids jumping is like slapping the side shocking the loose connection. I would pull the back cover, and OBSERVE the electronic connections around the yoke of the three CRT's. Keep hands away from larg diameter cable near the projection side of the tube. (large end) If you know what color is drooping, close inspection of that tube connections compared to the others would be a place to start. While the back cover is off consider blowing the dust out eliminating heat build up, and wiping the optics before reinstalling the cover. Let me know

Phillips 52'' projection tv.Picture goes small then large then off

Your original problem was/is an "opto" IC (chip),which causes the power supply to regulate low when it fails. It is a 6 or 8 pin chip. Sounds as if maybe more has failed now. Switch mode power supplies are not for the faint of heart,or DIY. I recommend having it troubleshot by a tech.

Sony Wega CRT TV. 3yrs old. Bought 2nd hand recently, told it was in good condition and it was for a while. Starting showing green/blue tinted screen (looked like Red colour was failing) intermittendtly...

its not an easy job, but needs lot of technical knowledge as you have to open up the set and do the tinkering work!
Perhaps you should take a look here
And this is concerned only with the mising color.

THe roll over problem may also mostly be due to failing picture tube. You cant handle on your ow.. You should seek assistance from a technician for sure.

Picture problem

Lloyd, convergence IC`s have failed, usually STK392-110`s mounted on large aluminum heat sink with the above number stamped on the front, also look for any slightly burnt resistors located in front of the IC`s, not an easy fix for the average joe, you`ll need a good knowledge of soldering and an accurate volt meter to measure the resistors, any questions? e-mail me, BMW Rider

Red spot in the middle of the screen

You most likely have a burn in on the surface of one of the picture tubes. What you need to do to confirm this, would be to take off the front screen, and with the set turned on, look directly into each one of the lenses, and see if you see a mark on the green or the blue tube. if this is the case, and I am pretty sure it is, the picture tube will need to be replaced, but this set is not a young thing, as the green faint lines is most likely a bad capacitor in the screen drive circuit. If the picture tube is indeed burned on the surface, most likely be better off buying a new TV set. Good Luck
