The Picture on my Mitsubishi vs-60805 "shrank" then disappeared
I was just watching tv and I noticed the picture at the top of the screeen looked like it was folding down. I turned it off for a while then turned it back on again and the picture continued to shrink, turned into one green line across the screen, then went out altogether.Is it worth fixing? I'm not entirely sure how old the tv is

It isnt worth it, your verticle diflection is out, that board is about 3-4 hundred, and you would probabily need a service center do it(messing with like 30000 volts)and they will probabily charge around 200

If your TV looks 3D, warped, or distorted it likely has a convergenge problem. If however it just looks dull, washed out, redish, greenish, or blueish or if it looks like objects on the screen have halos the fluid in the lens has soured. You can search google for parts or you can get the parts with repair instructions from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com
Since this is an older first generation (1999) HD TV it may not be compatible with newer HDTV receivers because the standards back then were different - Make sure the HD cable box is plugged into the HD component inputs on the back of the TV (not the DVD inputs) and that the menu setting on the TV is set to DTV (not RGB) video. This TV will only accept 480i and 480p signals on the DVD input. Also the HDTV input will only accept 480i,480p and 1080i (it will not work with a 720p signal,make sure your cable box is not set to that mode)
What you probably see is a burning area due to Cooling Fluid leaking from one of the CRTs. If this is the case, It is not worth fixing in my opinion because the Board would have to be replaced and the leaking CRT would also have to be replaced. The availability of the Board is doubtful Due to it's age. You can check at 1800-553-7278. This is Mitsubishi's parts department #.
Hope this helps,
Are you using your component video cables? if you are check to see if you are using the correct inputs. Look at the babck of your TV and see if the RGB (Lettering) matches with the box you are connecting to. What I am talking about is the YP(b)P(r) vs the YC(b)C(r) they are incompatable with each other.
Check that and if that is the case either match the two proper RGBs up or use another interface.
I had the same problem with the same model. If you pull the cover off the speakers in the front , then the small black panel. looking from the front past your lamps are the 3 main boards, the r/h board has wire jumpers connecting to the center board. The set that is closest to you had a bad/loose/corroded connection on mine. All I did was resecure connection(try moving them with your fingertip) and turn TV on and check.
