Question about Mitsubishi WS-73711 73" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Picture is seperated by different colors

This is a 8 year old Mitsubishi WS-73711 73 in. Rear Projection TV.

The picture on the screen is seperate for each color creating a ghosting effect. Its pretty bad. Everything is showing a double on the screen and you cannot make out anything. Even the menu items are hard to read.

I thought it was convergence problem but setting it to factory default is not solving the problem. It does not even make a difference.

    Thanks for the response. Quick question what is the cost of the capacitors and labor to fix this. If its too expensive - I'd rather put that money into a new tv.

The colors are seperating and screen picture is bowing in?


This is a very common failure on Projection sets. Its called a convergence problem.
You may have one or more of the following symptoms.
Screen looks 3D
Colors don't line up
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed or warped.
No Audio / No Video - Makes Chirping Sounds

WS-65907 Picture problem


Greetings joanne7,

The issue you are having could be caused by your television needing the convergence adjusted. During production your televison has the three picture tubes that are converged to form a single image on the screen. Over time these can come out of adjustment.
If you go to this link http://download.jazel.net/misc/filecache/b8/b89bca4c8b740315d378e8ed030461c5_1227-517SeriesOwnersGuide.pdf and check pages 57 and 58, it gives you a very detailed guide on adjusting your convergence. I am aware this model number is slightly different than yours, but I own a 47" Mitsubishi and this is the exact procedure we use to do our convergence so I am confident it is fairly universal.

The reason that they might snap back into place when you hit the base is that they are actually three different colored picture tubes or rods. By hitting the unit, you are moving these. I would suggest doing convergence on a regular basis and to avoid hitting your tv. :)

I hope this helps!
