Question about Mitsubishi VS-60607 TV
Evacuted for a Hurricane 6-9 mos ago and took my VS-60607 Misubishi TV with me. I don't guess we placed it very well in the back of the truck and the wind blew the screen inwards and 'love bugs' were splated all over it and in it. My sister and I took the front apart and cleaned it throughout. Since then, when the TV is turned on I have all the colors of the rainbow for about 45mins to an hour before it adjusts the color. But even then it is not perfect..the brightness control is adjusted all the way up and it still has parts that are dark...especially when whatever you are watching has dark areas of the movie/TV show. Could a bulb be out? Is my TV runined? Thanks in advance for any help.
This model is famous for fluid leaks. each projector
tube has a reservoir on the front of it with a fluid in it. this keeps the face of the tube cool.
this depends on how bad the damage is in the tv. in most cases we can reseal the tube and clean up the fluid 400-600.
take the tube out you will see where it leaked. The problem is that the
frame on the CRT that the heavy screws with springs are mounted on (that
hold the lens coupled to the CRT) is weak and they can bend. We have seen
several that have leaked after the customer moved the set. You can only
tighten them down so much because the frame bends. It is just stamped metal
and not welded at the corners to support the bend.
We remove the CRT, clean it all up, add a very small amount of RTV sealer to
the gasket, reassemble, let the RTV cure thoroughly and refill with coolant.
The extra sealer should prevent future leaks. Haven't had a recall yet.
Mits says replace the CRT...too costly.
You msut check the yokes carefully as well. If any coolant gets into them
you can end up with shorts there and a mess.
or could be
