Question about Mitsubishi WS-65809 65" Rear Projection Television

Open Question

55" rear projection Mitsubishi TV blinks off and on

My 5 year old mitsu 55" HD 1080 series rear projection TV works well except it has recently started to blink between a completely black screen and a normal screen. The blink only lasts for less than a second and as the TV warms up it can degrade to blinking on and off in rapid-fire succession. Sometimes the TV works fine for many hours and sometimes it seems to start as soon as we turn it on. The sound is not affected at all and it is not a cable problem since all inputs do the same.

I've opened it up, but didn't touch anything other than make sure there wasn't something obvious loose. If this is a simple part replacement I'd like to try it myself instead of hiring someone for big bucks to do it.

Model number WS-A55.

If the repair is more complicated I'd like to know where I can get inexpensive reliable service for this repair. Either answer would be helpful. I live in the Rockville MD area (zip 20850).

My mitsubishi 42' hd 1080 tv turns off immediately after i turn it on.The set is about 7 years old.HELP!!!!!! niteowl42


Have you acessed the power indicator error code by pressing in the menu and input buttons on the front of the set both in together and hold in for 5 seconds? The led will blink a series of blinks to indicate a 2 digit code which will repeat several times. Let me know what the blink seqience is.

I have a Mitsubishi HD 1080 55


Your unit has some sort of Thermal problem either with the PSU fault, or a thermal problem elsewhere that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur. T

You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done.

HD 1080 Series (WD-55809) - Color convergence issue


I don't know of illustrated instructions but I can provide you with the service manual for your TV. It does have illustrations of disassembly and components as well as schematics. Your set very likely needs new convergence IC chips. This is a common problem with all projection TVs. The repair is not expensive ($60-75 in parts)  but does involve unsoldering and removing the old chips and soldering in new ones. Some times there are some fuses that need to be replaced as well. If you want the manual provide me with an email address.

Same blinking problem with my 55" HD 1080 Series TV.


That model Mitsubishi is a 65 inch set not 55. And if the blinking you are talking about is the Power LED continually blinking green and otherwise dead it is because the digital module is not booting up. I have repaired many of them and this is done by replacing components in the digital module. Average repair cost is around $200 to $300 depending on where you live. That particular set is well worth the repair. If yours is a 55 inch instead the same still holds true.

most likely the convergence Ics have failed. Check F9a04 and F9A05 pico fuses if they are blown you will need to replace them and the convergence Ics.They are located on the center board they are green and look like resistors without the color band. see the photoa193b32.jpg82b89b8.jpg

My xbox360 Wont work on my WS-55513 MITSUBISHI COMPONENT


Try changing the settings on the Xbox under display to 1080i. If it is 1080 p, or 720p, the image will look funny so make sure it is at 1080i.

I believe that what you are seeing is the convergence IC problem that these Mitsu sets have. If you whack the set does the picture snap back in correctly? If yes, then the convergence ICs need to be resoldered.
