Question about Mitsubishi WS-55313 55" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Broke mpthe mirror in my WS-55313 Mitsubishi projection tv while moving it. Just wondering how much it will cost to get a new one. Is less than 100 dollars reasonable? We dropped it while moving it and the mirror broke. We turned it on and the middle of the screen was dark and going out towards the edges it was red and green, then it was normal colored. I am assuming all that needs to be replaced is the mirror

A few notes:

First if the mirror which hangs at a angle facing the screens comes apart it can come forward and smash the inner screen.

The best way to proceed is remove the entire front screen frame:

remove speaker grill on front under the screen (if cloth it should pull out in one piece (a few are two piece).

With it removed look under the bottom front edge of the screen unit--left to right there are several identical screws and you have to remove those.

If the front controls (vary by cabinet style) are in the bottom front of the screen unit there will be wires from them hanging down--should be an inspection plate dead center behind where the grill was.

follow the wires from the front control board down with the inspection plate removed and locate the one or two inline plugs and disconnect them (they pull apart and are marked)

With the screws at bottom of screen frame removed and the keyboard free pull out the frame from bottom and slid up about 4-6 inches the entire frame with the screens still in it.

Do not when you do this twist the frame as you can pop the screens right out.

Set the frame and screens to one side making sure not against the screens and avoid touching the inside screen inside the frame.

You should now be able to see the mirror clearly, be careful if cracked as when you release the screws that hold it in it may come apart and use gloves---broken mirrors are very sharp.

Mirror should if you see the plastic and wood slots for it not be too hard to remove and replace. Vac out any small glass as light from the set inside can reflect onto the new mirror or even the inside of the inner screen and be seen in the picture.

You almost certainly are going to have to get the mirror from Mitsubishi---price it with shipping but since its a 55 inch mirror almost any mitsubishi mirror that size will work perfectly--some shops save them....hint.


Most of those mirrors were at or over 100 dollars and a few sites on the net sell replacements in case Mitsubishi is too high.

Hope this helps and let me know if need advice.

You need to resolder the convergence chips. This is a very common issue with this line of TVs.

Hometheaterspot.com's Mitsubishi forum has detailed posts on how to fix this. Just serach for "55809 convergence" and you should find the info you need.

SOURCE: Cleaning the bulbs and mirror on my Mitsubishi 55" WS-55313 TV.

You should re-consider having a tech do that for you. The access is by removing the screen assmbly which are somewhat fragile. If you want to give it a try, pull the speaker grill off, it comes off just from pulling it, there should be five screws across the bottom of the screen assy, remove those, there is also an access door on the front of the set with four screws, that has to be removed to unplug the cable that goes to the screen sensors. The screen assy has to be lifted straight up an inch or two and then you can pull it forward away from the set.
As far as cleaning the mirror and lenses, you can't get to the face of the tubes so it's the top of the lenses that you clean, just use a soft lint free cloth (cloth baby diaper) and wipe the dust off the lenses, you can slightly dampen the cloth with water if necessary, same type of cloth on the mirror and you can use a glass cleaner on it just don't press too hard on the mirror.

SOURCE: Image problem with WS-65809 65" Mitsubishi Projection TV

WS-65809?, if convergence is skewed and comes and goes, uses two of the STK-392-570 CONVERGENCE IC chips.

I have seen a lot of the Mitsubishi sets that use these two chips where the convergence jumps in and out. You need to replace both chips and adjust the set.

You can buy a pair of the chips on EBAY for less than 13 dollars plus shipping.

I HAVE START TO FINISH, STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS REPAIR IN THE SETS THAT USE THESE TWO CHIPS.

If you or someone you know can do the repair you can save the set and a lot of money--most shops are going to get at least 300 for this kind of repair--I know as I have done hundreds of them here.

The instructions tell you everything you will need and how to do the repair. I have helped many people here do this based on my instructions.

If you want the instructions let me know and I will either post them here or send them to you.
