Mitsubishi 60 in rear projection TV 1990 - 'Dead"

I have a Mitsubishi 60 in rear projection TV (1990) that does nothing, no light, no picture, no sound. It was working fine one day and the next... nothing. The wiring diagram says it has 9 fuses but I can only find 3. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You might have a bad PIP board, When you say NO picture. Is it totally blacked out or blacked out with "blue snow". The PIP has been alot of problems in this chassis and you will experience what your describing. Capacitors are the root of the PIP boards failure. Let me know if I can assist you further.

This unit has chroin bad caps on the 5v, 9v and 12v regulators. If you know circuitry you can check thos caps and replace the weak or open electrolytic caps. If you call on a tech that services mitsu. this is faily common repair for them and should not cost over 150.00 to 200.00 depending on your area.

Your TV most likely has one or more possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

if you are using cable try disconnecting the input wire to the TV set from the cable box. it could be a ground loop issue.

Hello.
You have dreaded model that build around so called V-26 chassis. It's an epic story of Mitsubishi's bad engineering several years ago. They even faced class action about it and issued recall that (of course) already expired by now. You can search web for info on court case against Mitsubishi. This particular issue is caused by faulty components in Format board that is part of the chassis. The only right way to fix it - is to remove whole chassis (sandwich of several boards in metal enclosure) and send it to Mitsubishi to get rebuilt. If you will pay someone for repair of just this board - soon others will fail as well, one of another associated issue - after unplugging TV from the wall outlet you have green blinking light forever (reboot does not come to complete).
Right now Mitsubishi lowered price for rebuilding from $640 to $320 for authorized Repair Centers nationwide. Add to it labor charge for removal/installation (at least $150) and shipping (Mitsubishi assign number for repair and send special padded box that fits chassis) at least another $50.
Also take into consideration that lamp inside of your TV sooner or later have to be replaced. It is another $150-$225.
Calculate all of this together - that's how much you have to spend to watch your TV for another 2-3 years.
Common sense would be to cut you losses and invest in new one.
As for my experience - I've removed/installed those V-26 chassis about 1000 times or so while working for Mitsubishi Authorized Center.
Hope my knowledge of this issue would help you save some money.
Regards.
Russ.
