Question about Mitsubishi VS-50607 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

What is the life of a big screen tv?

The screen has a black bar on the top and bottom of the picture even when programming is not in wide screen. The bar on top shakes and distorts the picture. There are also squiggly green and red lines in the top bar. I have cleaned the lenses and interior cabinet every year for the past six years. I performed the advance convergence thinking that it would help, but nothing. I just would like to know the solution and more or less what the repair might cost.

Re: what is the life of a big screen tv?

Sounds like the veritical circuit has a bad capacitor. The cost is dependent on the servicers in your area. It can also be dependent on whether you take it to the shop or have a servicer come to your home. Look on a Mitsubishi website to find a servicer in your area.

That symptoms are due to failure of convergence out ICs in your TV that will be replaced to get correct converge picture on front screen.

There are 2 big black IC mounted on big aluminum heat sink and number would be written on as STKxxx, these 2 ICs will be replaced.

If you want to repair TV by yourself then confirm model number of TV to provide you more info or call local tech to replace said ICs.

Picture problem

I have an older Mitsibutishi 52" HD 1080. I recently upgraded my cable box to DirecTV HDTV. When I change to format to view in 1080 the TV goes from full screen to what seems to be wide screen with a black bar on the top and bottom. If I change the format to 480p I get a full screen; but the picture has a "redish tint" over it as if looking through sunglasses...I tried everything in my TV manual even call the cable company. Any suggestions?

Most if not all DVD's are 16 by 9 even in 4.3 mode you are going to have those bars on this TV. Some television have a zoom feature to get rid of that but not this one.
