Question about Mitsubishi WT-42315 42" TV

1 Answer

Red and green lamps look off center

Once my tv gets warm the red lamp pushes to the right creating a green band 2 inches wide down the left side of the tv. this also causes a ghost image, one green, the other red. the problem has corrected itself last night so i dont think heat has to much to do with it, however when i turn the tv on after being off for awhile it is fine. 2 minutes in the red shifts to the right and hasnt gone away today? Any pointers?

Re: red and green lamps look off center

Intermittant convergence alignment issues are quite common.
Either solder the convergence IC pins or better yet , change out
the IC's with first quality OEM spec or upgrade..............T.

FOLLOW this steps and fix it. God bless you

  • 1
    Power down the TV. Let it cool down for several minutes to avoid touching anything hot. There are many parts inside the TV that could be hot.

  • 2
    Unplug the TV and all media devices attached to it. Let the TV sit again for several more minutes just to be safe. The lamp receptacle and other components could still be hot.

  • 3
    Unscrew the back cover of your TV with a screwdriver. Have someone help if the cover is big. The lamp's housing unit on most TVs is located towards the bottom. Refer to your TV Owner's Manual for specific instructions.

  • 4
    Unscrew the lamp's housing unit with your screwdriver. Take your time to avoid damaging the housing unit. You'll see the lamp once you open the housing unit.

  • 5
    Use a soft cloth to unscrew the lamp out of the housing unit. There's a possibility the lamps- could still be hot. The cloth will help protect your hand.

  • 6
    Screw the replacement lamp into the housing unit with the same soft cloth. The oils from your fingers could ruin a rear projection TV bulb.

  • 7
    Reattach the lamp's housing unit and TV back cover. Make sure no wires are loose or get caught when screwing the back cover on.

  • 8
    Attach all media devices like cable or satellite boxes. You should now be able to watch your TV with a brand new picture.

3 problems 1. TV shuts off and on automatically. 2. 2 inch band on left side of screen 3. No picture at all

The band or shadow on the left side of the screen definitely sounds like a defective light tunnel.As for the intermittent pix and shut down this could be the lamp if you have not already changed it.

How do I change the color wheel on my samsung HL-P5663W. I have already removed the lamp and loosened screws for the lamp housing. Doesn't seem to want to come apart. Am I on the right track?

Samsung's digital light projection (DLP) televisions use a spinning color wheel to create the colors that are seen on the screen. If the color wheel becomes misaligned during use, it will become damaged and have to be replaced. Replacing the color wheel on a Samsung DLP television can be done at home, once a compatible-sized color wheel has been bought from a TV supply store.Replacing the color wheel yourself will void any Samsung warranty that might be in place, but is the only solution for getting the TV working again in as short a time as possible.
Put on the anti-static grounding strap to keep static electricity from damaging the internal components of the Samsung DLP TV. Turn the Samsung around so that the back is facing you. Make sure the Samsung is unplugged from the AC socket.
Use the Phillips screwdriver to remove all of the screws from the back panel. Put the screws aside. Pull off the back panel.
Loosen the two screws from each side of the projection bulb's case. Pull the projection bulb out. Put the projection bulb aside. Use the Phillips screwdriver to remove the two screws from the left side panel. Pull the side panel and the circuit board attached to it out carefully and put it down so that the cables attached to it have not been pulled out.
Take a picture of the power cable's position with the digital camera so that you can put it back correctly later. Pull the power cable out from inside of the Samsung's case so that the center panel is free to be pulled out. Remove the two large headed screws from the center panel with the Phillips screwdriver. Remove the top two screws holding the panel to the plastic case using the Phillips screwdriver.
Slowly slide the center unit out a few inches. Take a picture of the projector lens' positioning with the digital camera so that you can put it back correctly later. Unplug the two cables from the left side of the center panel. Unscrew the sensor switch using the Phillips screwdriver. Slide the center panel completely out of the Samsung and put it down on the clean cloth. Blow off the color wheel assembly with the compressed air.
Use the tweezers to remove the green plug from the top of the color wheel cover. Use the tweezers to remove the two cables at the side that are coming from the color wheel. Use the Phillips jeweler's screwdriver to remove the screws from the top, front and back of the color wheel cover. Slide the color wheel cover straight up to expose the color wheel.
Use the Phillips screwdriver to remove the three screws holding the color wheel to the color wheel assembly. Lift the color wheel up and out of the color wheel assembly and discard it.
Position the replacement color wheel in the color wheel assembly. Reassemble the color wheel and reassemble the color wheel assembly. Put the color wheel assembly back into position in the rear of the Samsung DLP TV. Reassemble the Samsung DLP TV. Plug the Samsung DLP TV back in for power. Turn the Samsung on and enjoy seeing the colors displayed properly again now that you have replaced the color wheel.

TV won't stay on

Hello Fonzell!
Regarding the tv turning, my question is, do you hear a clicking sound? if so, it's most probable tio be your ballast, that might not have enough voltage to keep on with your lamp, and that's why it shuts off.
You could try replacing it and seeing if it resolves your issue, I believe they're running around 70 dlls..
have a great one ! :)
