Blurred Picture Mitsubishi WS-65809 65"

I have trouble with the entire picture. Barely watchable. Picture is blurred. Can barely, if at all read letters. Is the lamp bad?

    Is it expensive to fix? Would I be better off just buying a new tv?

  • Casey Nov 07, 2008

    I have the same problem I think. After I watch for a little bit, it goes into almost like a 3d effect, or something like this. Ill wack the side of the tv with my shoe, and, all is ok for a couple mins. But, then goes right back to 3d. Im, pretty good with electronics, but not the lingo.

    I have the same problem so does everyone with this model. I have found that the IC's are the problem.

The convergence IC's will most likely need to be replaced as well as a resistor or two

My hd1080 color is multi and my picture is blurred

Unless the unit was moved and RGB section misaligned, the other condition could be a defective controller circuit board.
If it is old, heat builds up over time and the components start to breakdown. Remove the back of the TV and see if there is a collection of dust and debris that could effect the operation of the TV.

Picture borders bow inward and blurred. Only focused in center of picture .Kinda looks 3dish

your convergence IC's have gone out. Lot of pins on these bad boys if you don't know how to solder then call a repairman, but expect a heafty bill.

Borders bowed inward,blurred red,blue, & green

the next time it is not working go into the customer menu with remote and call up the convergence grid and look---there---if convergence is way off and or comes and goes---this set uses 2 Stk-392-570 ic's and it is quite common to see them become intermittant.

I have a Mitsubishi 55 inch rear projection tv, ws55819 on which the convergance is gone bad. I'm getting a concave picture with multiple colors and black lines with a blurred picture. this happens mutiple...

Your reference to concave picture suggests a high voltage problem and not convergence. If the raster can't scan from left to right , top to bottom, your having High voltage trouble. if your colors are not dropping on top of each other that is convergence. I would suggest it may be time to consider a purchase of the new HD set for the cost of this repair. good luck

Colors are bleeding and picture blurred. Can't adjust convergence settings.

Replace the two Convergence amp ICs they are both STK392-570 Ics you can get replacements at the following link with free instructions on how to remove the old and replace the new ones.

Picture turns to red & green and becomes blurred.

This is likely solder connections cracking on your convergence ICs. If you can bump the tv and it goes back to normal, it just needs resoldering, but if it doesn't, then it needs the ICs replaced. If the convergence is out, you will see a bowed picture and the red, green, and blue will be separated. Worth repairing if you can find a company to do it affordably, I can help you repair yourself if you have disassembly and soldering skills.
