A few days ago i found a Mitsubishi VS-5059 in the trash (I love taking trash :) ) And i asked the woman that owned it why it didn't work. She said that the mirror inside was cracked and that her husband was tired of banging on it to work. So i said thanks and took it home to find out what was wrong. So i got it home, And plugged it in. I pushed the power button and got a click, then some static. Then the screen came on. After a while i got blue, With a big black line running down the side. Then the picture went nuts. The picture was shaking everywhere and a couple of colored lines ran across the middle. I shut it off and took it in and dis-assembled it. Turns out that the mirror was cracked on the right side. I got the bottom half of it off and had no clue what was wrong, There were so many boards and wires, I didn't know where to start!
Can anyone point me in the right direction of fixing this?

This is a convergence problem and not really a DIY Many amateurs try it to save money but end up spending more on it than a professional. There are dozens on here that managed to fix it for a day or two only to have it fail again.
You can likely buy a replacement remote here:
'Universal' remotes exist only in your dreams; there is no such thing since the manufacturers cannot agree on a basic code set that would work with any set.
None of them can control every function of every brand and model made.
If this Tv is a model year 1996 or 1998, It is quite possible your vertical IC needs resoldered. It is located on the small signal board. This board [quite large anyway] is the board on the left. I don't know the location off hand. The IC has seven pins and located on a heatsink, It is a TDA series. Resolder any and all grounds you see. May as well get the Large Signal board [On the right] resoldered. The other problem would be the P I P board, a small board standing up, that can be removed and replaced. But try the earlier first. This is tedious, but will produce results.
These models have been known to have faulty capacitors on the PIP module as a result thy loose vertical synvh and the picure will roll. The PIP module is no longer available. But if you would like I can post a way for you to bypass the module and if the modle is at fault your tv will work fine, but you wont have PIP anylonger
What you have there is a VZ-2B chassis built in 1995. The caps you're looking at are in the regulator circuit 981 (22uf/50v) and 982/983 (47uf/50v) which is NOT the only problem you have there. I would strongly suspect that the regulator itself will need to be replaced and you might find anywhere from two to three dozen caps in that unit in need of replacement.
If you know how to ESR a cap and have the equipment go for it and let me know what you find. I would be surprised if you found even more than three dozen with high ESR.
If you're not that technically inclined take it to a repair center and have them estimate it before the work is done and discuss with them how many caps they find that are in need of replacement.
If they find less than 12 with high ESR they're not likely doing a very good job.
Probably has some bad solder connections in the deflection/ power supply area, if you dont know about electronics, might call a repairman and put a few hundred $ into it or junk it, also it is not HD, just FYI
If still under warranty or if you have no electronic repair experience you should take the set back to the shop or to a repair person. Some of the solutions described below can be dangerous, TV's are very hazardous to service. Even when plugged out, TV's can store very high voltages.
This should not be an expensive job at most repair shops. Could be
something as simple as cracked, cold, defective solder joints around and near the vertical output chip, could be a faulty chip and other components in and around the vertical deflection circuitry, or a faulty vertical drive signal from the jungle circuits, or worst case a faulty deflection yoke. Take your television to a shop right away for a proper and safe repair. Do not keep the television looking at the red horizontal line....
you can easily damage or burn the CRT phosphors.
