Question about Mitsubishi WS-65711 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Left side of screen going yellow and pink with leters in double

This TV has been a gem! It has HD 1080i and was ahead of its time 5 years ago. The playoffs are around the bend and it just started to go into doubles on the left side of my screen in pink & yellow or green. Letters are in double and the outline of a figure on the left side of the screen has a wide yellow/ green/ pink line around the figure. On the right side of screen as you face it, the same lines are thinner. Tell me it is not over! Just please tell me it is doable in terms of a fix without another mortgage attached!

The convergence modules have gone bad Along with the new parts kit are fuses, diodes, and resistors that usually fry when these modules go bad. Depending on the model, there will be two and sometimes 3 of these modules that have to be replaced. Each module has 50 pins each that have to be soldered, so unless you have experience with complicated TV repairs, the cost to do that repair may be as much as a flat screen TV of the same screen size as yours.

Hello billy218,

What is happening is that your convergence amplifier modules are beginning to go bad. These amplifiers are what amplify the signals used for convergence (how the RGB lights line up on each other) when they go bad the RGB lights tend to bow towards the center of the TV and the colors begin to mis-align. There are many sites devoted to doing the changing of the amplifiers yourself,however although these sites are accurate in give the instructions on how to change the amplifiers they do very little for actual troubleshooting and finding the underlying cause of the problem. In most cases its just that the amp modules have gone bad, but sometimes there is an overheating problem that triggers the damage. I would suggest having a TV repair person come to your place to check the problem and to fix it. The repair should cost about $250.00

Your symptom sounds like a damaged convergence IC.

There are two and large IC’s that control the convergence in a big screen set. They are secured to a very large aluminum heat sink. They will have a part number stamped on them that will start with an STKXXX-XXX, like STK392-110, and they are located on the signal board (on the left as you look into the back of the set).

Along with the convergence IC’s there will also be some associated components that will need to be replaced as well. There are some resistors that are part of the convergence circuit that will be open and need to be replaced. Most likely these will appear charred in the center. If you have an Ohm Meter or a DVM, check all the resistors that are close to the IC’s and you should be looking for either ones that have opened or have changed values.
There are also two resistors on the front of the board located in the middle that are fusible link resistors, these should be checked for opens and replaced if they are found so.

I would suggest that you contact a service center in your area for a complete diagnosis and repair, as this type of repair can get a little tricky. But if you want to repair the set yourself, just remember to be careful. The capacitors and CRT’s can hold a charge and may shock you.


If one of the convergence IC’s are found to be bad, I would replace them both, if one has gone bad the other may go soon. I usually order my parts from Andrews Electronics in California, they will have the OEM components that you will need.
Their site is http://www.andrewselectronics.com/welcome.aspx
And their phone number is a 24-Hour Order Desk: (800) 274-4666
I recommend the phone order so you can talk to the person about the different types of IC’s that are available.

I would also advise that the convergence IC’s be OEM or better, just because they are cheap does not mean that they are a good deal. I have seen the cheap IC’s fail after a short time, even though they look exactly like the OEM IC’s. I think that the bottom line is that you will get what you pay for when it comes to the parts.

You can also try http://www.tvrepairkits.com/ , I have not tried them yet, but they do carry OEM or better parts.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

If your menus on the TV and other inputs look good then it is probably a resolution setting on your Directv box that needs to be changed. To get HD it needs to be set at 720p or 1080i. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks....

Grey Screen with 480p signals (or higher)


I've had a KP 53HS10 for close to 8 years I think. 4 years ago the picture started blinking after long use, then more and more often. I had a repairman come and replace the tuner card (that's all I know about what he did). Now that I finally have HD from cable, I've found that 720 doesn't work and 1080i works, but the picture blinks on and off apparently struggling with some inner problems. Everything looks great, for a second and then it blinks. The red light blinks 5 times repeatedly while this is going on. I called SONY 5 times means get a repair man. I searching forms like this for help as well.

Xbox 360 screen cut off on left side


Ok, I've had the same issue and I was able to fix my problem. I was getting cut off sides in HD mode on my playstation.

I entered the service menu by doing this:

Turn TV Off
Use remote and hit "Mute 1 8 2 Power" (not at the same time, but one after the other)

The TV will come on with the service menu. Enter the 1080i adjustment screen. Write down ALL the values in case you mess up. Adjust the values as necessary to fit your screen. It's sort of like adjusting a computer monitor's image for different resolutions.
