Question about Mitsubishi WT-42315 42" TV

2 Answers

Color ghosting on left side

Mitsubishi WT-42311, purchased 11/2003. Just recently the set has started showing 3 colored ghost on the left 6" of the screen. It looks like the problem of an unshielded speaker, but no speakers have been moved or added. Is the internal speaker possibly loose and causing the ghost? It also won't turn back on when it is "hot", auto shut off when attempting to turn it back on. Thanks Braveheart

A magnetic field such as would come from a speaker might cause the ghosts but would not stop your set from coming on when it's hot. You may have a horizontal deflection problem such a bad flyback transformer or some other component that gets worse with temperature. You need to have it checked out by a technician. Stargazer

Color allignment on a Mitsubishi WT-42311 42in Rear Projection


You will need to replace the two stk-392-110 convergence chips this model uses. This can be a do it your self job if you have some skills.

This model has a light box which contains 98% of the set's inner parts. With it removed the chips will be easy to locate.

Total parts cost on EBAY should be under thirty dollars and repair should take about a hour or so.

YOU will need to be able to solder as the chips have 18 pins each.

If you think you can do it I can tell you how to get the light box out and proceed with the repair; this model has very few problems and a good picture.


You will also need to have the Mitsubishi remote to correctly adjust after the fix.

Let me know what you want to do--I am here to help.

Picture has colored ghost on the both sides of screen


Wt-46-809, if convergence is skewed and comes and goes, uses two of the STK-392-570 CONVERGENCE IC chips.

I have seen a lot of the Mitsubishi sets that use these two chips where the convergence jumps in and out. You need to replace both chips and adjust the set.

You can buy a pair of the chips on EBAY for less than 13 dollars plus shipping.

I HAVE START TO FINISH, STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS REPAIR IN THE SETS THAT USE THESE TWO CHIPS.

If you or someone you know can do the repair you can save the set and a lot of money--most shops are going to get at least 300 for this kind of repair--I know as I have done hundreds of them here.

The instructions tell you everything you will need and how to do the repair. I have helped many people here do this based on my instructions.

If you want the instructions let me know and I will either post them here or send them to you.

If this information has helped you, rate this solution as I do this here for FREE.

HP 2600 ghosting


It is a massive pain but a solution that worked for me is to run a 'clean' after every card stock sheet. I know it's wicked awful but it actually worked and I had to run 100 times (one for each good color card stock)
First put plain paper in tray 2
Next
Hit left arrow until you get to 'system service' and press green check
Next
then go to 'clean' and press check
Now it should print a clean image without ghosting

TV is Ghosting


if convergence problem color would be bowed and off. If it is the convergence replace ic stks there are 2 inside tv if you could solder and good at this stuff. parts cost is 30.00 . if you are going to get fixed cost is 300.00 . www.part store.com has parts just give them model number .They can tell you part number.I would pay someone to do this it is trickey.

I think ghosting is ground problem on cable connections check connections and replace cable wire.

Big screen showing double and red ghost color


Go into your service menu and try to adjust the convergence, if it does not adjust, the IC's ( chips) are bad in that circuit. Call a local factory authorized dealer to service your tv. The cost should run around $450.00. Good luck.
