Question about Mitsubishi WD-62725 62" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Horiantal line near top of screen

The picture has developed a dark horizontal line few inches from the top of the screen. It is present on all input sources. Color varies slightly depending on background so I am assuming that it is blank. Any ideas on the cause and probable costs to fix? Thanks, James

Horizontal blue lines with a slight blue wash in the screen

Its because of Over Voltage of Screen (G2) to Blue CRT.
Take off front lower cover (speaker grill) and unscrew board. There you will need to find Focus Block mounted having 6 control knobs. 3 knobs are for Focus control and 3 are for Screen volts control. Find Blue Screen control knob and turn is Counter Click Wise slightly until bluish shade disappear on screen including few blue horizontal lines.
If you select AV input to adjust that will be fine as you do not need to wait for dark-scene.

Mitsubishi VS70707 Has developed subtle lines in picture

If they are faint white lines, they are called re-trace lines. They are caused when the current to the CRTs is too high. One way to check is to turn the brightness down. They should go away, but if the picture is too dark, you will need to turn down the "screen" control. This will take some handy work. If you are handy enough, take the grill off the front. Inside you will see a little black box, about 5 inches wide. there are 6 knobs on it, 2 for each color. One row is for focus (each) the other for screen (brightness). It is written on the part. The trick is to turn each of them down equally or risk having a slight tint of color. Really not hard at all, but requires the TV to be on to see. You shouldn't need to turn it but a fraction. Good luck.

JVC TV 27" Black line on top of screen

This is for the original problem.. Not the second post.

It's a problem in the horizontal deflection circuit. The parts will be available, but you will be in for some daignostic repairs also to find out why it failing or if it has failed on it's own.
There should be a few caps near the IC (an LA7840) that could also be causing the problem. Click the link, it will make it easier to locate the part inside.

This is the kind of repair best left to a TV tech, but get it done now and it won't cost anywhere near as much as it will later.

Blue horizontal line

Hi Brian,
Sounds as though you have a bad convergence chip ( there are two convergence chips on the board ). I suggest you change both and apply lots of heat silacon grease. Good Luck

Horizontal Lines

sounds like you are seeing retrace lines. you will have to adjuste the screen control. (it would be like a master brightness.) you will have to removed the front bottom plastic from the tv, look for 2 to 4 screws. then gently remove the front. sometimes the also add velcro to help hold it in place. now you need to remove the small plastic or wooden panel/door. in the upper right side you will see a small box with 6 controls.i do nor remember if the top 3 controls are for screen or focus, use a flashlight it is marked on the box which is which. adjusted the screen control to the left slightly to decrease the color you need. the green is the center control. like you said it is more noticable on dark screens, so try & adjust it in a dark romm with a drak seen. good luck.
