Mitsubishi VS-45VA1 ~ No Projection Image

One evening I went to turn on my ever-faithful 1992 Mitsubishi VS-45VA1 T.V. with my remote but it wouldn't turn the T.V. on. Thinking that the batteries in the remote were exhausted, I immediately replaced the batteries. But, the remote still failed to turn the T.V. on. It was necessary for me to turn the T.V. on manually at the set. But the screen remained black (not even the normal blue when no signal is detected). I did however get audio from the speakers. I checked everything that I could as far as the settings go. Everything looked normal. After reading around these types of repair websites, I read where someone suggested unplugging and then plugging in the 120VAC power cord for someone else's T.V. problems. Well, I just decided to try this and it actually worked for my problem. I'm guessing that this may have reset some electronic relay internally, but don't really know for sure. Do you got any ideas on what component may have been tripped or reset?

Sometimes resetting the microprocessor circuit is all it takes to fix a set. A shock, power fluctuation or something in the timing of the control circuit may have caused a momentary glitch in the television and resetting it fixed the set. Keep an eye on it and if there is another problem with it, reply here and we will try to work it out.

Mitsubishi vs-70601 picture pincushioned and out of convergence

could just be a convergence issue. there should be an auto-convergence feature in the menu. outside of that, you'll have to manually converge the colors seperately (also a feature in the menu).

Picture has greenish tint that I can't adjust out

There is a crt drive problem and you can isolate it by unpluggin g the set, removing the green crt socket, in the middle of the three tubes is the green tube by the way, remove one of the other tubes and switching the crt sockets and turn it on. If the set is still greenish, then the green crt is bad and needs replacement, if another color is primart, then it is going to be the green crt drive circuit and is going to need to be serviced. Good Luck

Mitsubishi VS-5041 (TV turns on but no pic or sound)

Your problem is one and or 2 differant problems. The power regulator could have went bad because of the convergence IC have shorted. Seen this a thousand(easy that!)Times. All parts in this set are soldered in and are not user serviceable. look in your owners manual or call 800-332-2119 to get an authorized servicer to come and look at your problem . I wish i could tell you what to replace but theres the Extreme Hi voltage inside these sets even when they are not plugged in .. Good Luck
