Question about Mitsubishi WS-55511 55" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Convergence Issue? Turned on the TV this morning and I have shadows! The picture almost looks like what a 3-D movie looks like without the 3-D glasses on. If this isn't descriptive enough, I can e-mail you a picture. Let me know if the attached pic gives you enough detail. Thanks, Pete

    We have the same problem. We think it might be the board.

    on 1/29/2009 I started seeing red and green shadows beside the image on my WS_55511. I would like to know if this is a convergence issue, or something different? How do I set up the convergence if possible without hiring a professional. I can't afford it.

    I have the same problem. It looks like you are watching a Three-D movie. Is it an easy fix or should I just get a new TV.

    My Mitsubishi ws-55511 had the 3d effect with a convex bow on top and concave bow on the bottom. I replaced the convergence IC (stk393-110) thinking that was the problem, but after the installation of the new IC the picture looks the same. Does anyone know what else causes this convergence issue? Maybe I got a bad IC? I'll keep searching, but thanks in advance.

    I am also having the same problem with a wavy red arch across the screen and picture that looks like a 3d without the glasses. We just spent $500 to have another problem repaired in january and have been told that this would likely cost at leasrt another $400. We paid $3500 for the HD version of thiis TV and are very disappointed. We've only had it 5 years and wonder if we shoul have it repaired or not. Comments please...

After I did not fix the convergence issue I read on another forum that someone else who also did the IC replacement on the ws-55511 also had it turned out worse. But after having a co-worker look over his work to fix a couple connections he took it home and turned it on and everything was perfect again.
I took the board out and began to hook up every connection examining each with a close eye. As I was connecting the two boards I saw that one of the 2 white 19pin connectors on the left had a pin which was not making a connection.
After I fixed that pin and hooked everything else back up, the tv was back to normal.

I had the same problem but not as bad. I went to the menu, then settings. Tried the factory convergence reset first but that didn't work. Under convergence I selected the red option and got a screen with a plus sign. Press the AUDIO button and lines will cover your tv screen. It might take a while but you can try to fix the convergence at many points now. Select the area you want to correct by pushing the ENTER button, then up,down,left,right until its better and ENTER button again. Keep doing that to all areas. Once done with red, push VIDEO button and blue convergence will come up. Also INFO button helps explain a little. After I did this my picture improved a lot. My tv wasn't as bad as yours, but I hope this works.

I have a HCN4727w samsung. Red/green shadowing. Bowed image


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped or bowed
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Looks like watching 3D movie(colors) and rounded


This is a convergence problem and is either bad connections on the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you feel that you can solder, you should be able to repair this yourself. First try resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs. If that fails, replace the ICs. These ICs are large black ICs attached to a heatsink and should be marked STKxxx.
Keep us posted.

Picture Looks Like a 3-d Movie


This is bad convergence. Try self focus and if still not ok is hardware problem. The STK are leaked and need to be replaced. It's not easy, you have to remove the all deflection board and for sure you'll have some resistors to replace too. I sugest you to call a tech, but first try the self focus.
