Question about Mitsubishi VS-55705 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Projection guns not working

I have an odler Mitsubishi rear projetion tv. A while ago the picture would completely cut out and then come back after turning the TV off for a while. Now the picture won't stay on for longer than a minute or two. Just before the picture goes, there are black lines on the screen followed by a flash of red/green/blue across the center, then it goes black. Any ideas?

    You rock! We finally figured out today that it is one of the connections on the middle deflection yoke board. Until we figure out how to gain access to the board, we were able to bend the wire that goes to it to make a better connection. Thanks a ton!

I've seen a lot of vertical problems on those older mitsu's. If it has been intermitant some of those would get bad solder connections on the deflection yoke ( the transformer slid up on the neck of the picture tubes) ther are three and it could be any one. the thing about it is you have to slide it down and take it apart to get to the area that would get the bad connections. If you do not know what you are doing the setup afterwards could be a mess. This is the first thing that comes to mind but be warned there are many many possibilities for what you are describing. good luck

The Color On My Mitsubishi Rear Projection Tv model- WS-55908 looks to be off, picture looks blue and Yellow.

its sounds like the convergence on your TV needs to be adjusted. (this adjusts all of the color guns in the back of the tv to line them up again, when they get off, you start to get yellow blue or red halos around objects in the picture. In the setup menu on your TV under picture or Display there will be an item that says "convergence" follow the instructions in there so all the crosses on the screen no longer have colored halos anymore.

Where can I purchse new lens/lamps at for my Mitsubishi vs 5047?

Is this a CRT (picture tube) or LCD, DLP projetion set. DLP and LCD are lamp driven CRT have three picture tubes (red green and blue). You can tell by looking at the back pof the set if you see the glow of white light than it's a LCD or DLP. Lamps can be purchased at "bluestar international" ($100-$400) (google it) and CRT's are not worth replacing (over $300 each_)

RGB picture guns ( CRT's ) are ok. Your set needs a common
convergence circuit overhaul requiring replacement of two IC's,
part # STK392-570. Usual cost about 400.00.........T.
