For past 6 Months The scren was bowing Horizontally and now it has sever ghosting.. What to do this TV is about 8 years old Model Number WS-65807


Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.
This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Whats the value of a mitsubishi 48 inch tv, model is ws-48511?


this is mostly in the eye of the one who thinks they need one!

12 months of age 60% its purchase price if it is in good working condition
24 months 50%
36 months 25-30%
48 months 10-15%

Beyond that it will be heritage listed and bring twice the price of its original outlay and be sought after by Mitsubishi who will be amazed that they actually made a TV that lasted that long. The average life of amy Mitsubishi and quite a few other modern Tv's is about 3 years before they require huge repair expenditure.
Often better to update wvery 12 months if you can afford it as they are not built to last like the old CRT's that will still deliver on a set top box long after plasmas and rear projections have been retired.

please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA
