Question about Mitsubishi WS-65809 65" Rear Projection Television
Picture no longer clear, shadows on letters and around people on screen, picture is bowed, and some channels don't come in anymore. Also, when switching channels, looks like not programmed, lots of bars and snow until picture comes in.
You have multiple issues. The shadows are likely convergence IC solder connections breaking or the ICs actually failing. If you can bump the tv to get it to re-align, it just needs resoldering. If it doesn't snap back, it needs new ICs. The channel issue is less common and could be a number of things. You may want need to just autoprogram again to, but may have a fluid leak issue. You can unplug the tv and remove the back panel to inspect for fluid on the signal board (board with tuners, where cable plugs in).. DON'T touch the fluid, highly toxic stuff. Take a bright light and see if any drops have made it down to the board. If so, the severity of the leak will determine the repairablity. Try using a VCR or cable box to bypass this problem if no fluid leaked, that is the best (cheapest) way around it.
