Screen picture shrank by half

Do not laugh but usually if this happens (picture pulls down from top and or bottom) it is bad solder connections that develop from the age of the set.

The circuit boards expand when they heat up and contract when they cool down.

Usually in this case I exert pressure or tap on the main board and watch to see if picture opens up even for a moment.

Most likely place will be at Vertical output chip on main board; it is usually IC301 or 401 and is not real large; it will be mounted on a small piece of metal to keep it cool.

If you know someone who can solder and get the set apart it could be a ten minute job to correct it.

Most shops are going to be reluctant to work on a set this old so if you go that route call first and try to get a ballpark idea of costs.

These were really very good sets and had few problems but they are getting old now.

Let me know if you have any questions or need advice, I am here to help.

If this told you something you did not know rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

TV only shows line across middle of screen.Still have audio.

Sounds like you have bad solder joints on the vertical ic which should be numbered IC501 on the board.also there are capastors that coud be going bad but i would look for bad solder joints on ic frist.
The capastors numbers on board are C502 / C516 also need to check R 483 which is a resistor.
resolder the ic if you know how to solder. That is a comon problem a lot of tvs out there have. The only thing is the tv has high voltage on it even if it is unpluged from the wall. Some of the capastors hold there voltage for a long time. Be sure and unplug tv before you try anything if you are going to do it yourself and stay away from the capastor in the AC line should be marked 200 V or moor.

The Picture on my Mitsubishi vs-60805 "shrank" then disappeared

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

Loss of oil pressure

main bearings are worn and when heats up they expand even more and oil can blow out these with less pressure.
