Mitsubishi VS-60705 red lamp replacement

We have a Mitsubishi VS-60705 and the red lamp needs replacement. We have ordered the lamp from Mitsubishi directly. The problem is the service technicians who want to charge you double the price of the replacement lamp. Is it hard to replaced the lamp and where can I get instructions on how to do this? This set was given to us as a gift.

The part you are describing is actually the red picture tube, not a lamp. The tube will come dry and you will need to disassemble the lens assembly on the old tube, drain the coolant (antifreeze), reassemble the parts and seal on the new picture tube, fill with fresh coolant, install the new tube, reconnect all wires including the dangerous high voltage lead, then realign the yoke and entire convergence circuits. This is not something that should be attempted by anyone without experience. If you try it yourself and the seal is not working perfectly, the coolant will drip down on your main boards and the set will be ruined. If you slip while lowering the new tube in the chassis there is a good chance you will crack the tube's neck, and that tube will be useless too.

My tv mitsubishi vs-60705 looks great when i first turn it on after it warms up picture starts to shake and gets worse the longer its on. what is overheating to cause this ?


Sounds like you have a swollen cap in your horizontal hold circuit. Look at your board closely, and I am sure you will find one that is bulging on the top. Just replace with the same value.

My mitsubishi vs-60705 has very poor picture clarity. It can be described as hazy and the color is weak.


It may be a convergence problem...but not sure based on your description.

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem


  • 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.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

My Mitsubishi Model VS-60705 did the same thing a couple of years ago...A TV repair facility replaced the Video card. Any repair facility that works on rear-projection TV's should be able to repair your set. I bought the set on Jan 1, 2000. Coming up on 9 years and the set works like new.

Mitsubishi VS-60705 - picture flutters vertically and horizontally


This sounds like one of the 9 volt regulators on the small signal board is going bad, supplying less than 8 volts. I have seen this is several of those sets. The IC needs to be replaced and if you do not have experience in servicing projection TV's then I suggest letting a qualified tech handle it for you.
