Blows damper diode after few hours

Blows damper diode after a few hours or sometimes a day or so. Caught it once heard a snap and lost convergence due to shorted damper diode sides also pulled in. Think I have a bad crt or leaky divider block?

TV screen goes black, sometimes for hours

This model series had a odd problem that caused this. It was the Hoizonal wire connctors for the yoke. If my memory serves me right, the Yoke wire harness went from Yoke to Yoke and plugged in at the casing of each yoke. What I found is the solder connection on the small board of each Yoke was intermitent. Please be careful if you choose to tackle this. It is in a HV Area.
Hope this helps,

Lost convergece and not on the tv menu

Simple problem to fix for a professional; pretty hard to do yourself. There are bad connections on the flyback transformer and a fuse is open. Where do you live; i'm due for a road trip.

I have a mitsubishi 50 in. projection tv, model vs-50707. when I press the power button something clicks like it wants to turn on but it shuts off

That model has a problem with the CRTs dripping fluid onto the oards directly under the tubes and it will corrode the components and solder preventing start up. Check the boards for evidence of coolant leaking it should be either wet shiny or a pasty residule if so let me know and I will try to help you straighten it out.
