    The Mitsubishi WS-55513 55 in. seems to work fine, but the picture is
    to large for the screen. The heads of the people are cut off and the
    football scores at the top and bottom are cut off.
    All the available
    display formats work from the remote. I have the t.v. set to standard setting and. I
    am using the outside digital antenna input. Changing it to zoom or some the other setting makes it bigger. Is there a code you have to enter into the set up menu to change the setting of the size of the screen? Hope you can help.

    Thanks again for trying. I do believe the whole picture is to large and even the sides are also cut off from the way it looks by looking at other t.v. You can see lettering and such cut in half. I have been in the video part but did not find a way to change anything. Set up the colors and the advanced convergence setting. Hate to bother you but is there a way I can run through the (image convergence utility available in the Video adjustment utility)?- I have not found anything that changes the video. I have not tried the factory default setting because i thought it may change all my color setting and the advanced setting.

Change your Display Format (widescreen mode) . You're using ZOOM. Press FORMAT on the TV remote control to cycle through the available display formats.

    I appreciate your clear description of the problem with associated details that you felt might be relevant. This is surprisingly rare on this site, and as a result it is often difficult to offer others any advice. As you clearly made an effort, I wanted to help. I pulled the owner's manual from the Mitsubishi website (made possible b/c you included a model number) and perused it thoroughly. Originally, I thought for sure that you had it in ZOOM mode, as that would create the effect exactly as you described, but you made it clear that isn't the case. I could not find anything else that may cause the oversized image. It's not a sure bet, but my next step would probably be to run through the image convergence utility available in the Video adjustment utility. I'm sorry I can't be of more assistance today.

To be kind you are wasting your time, This is a 1st generation HD set not designed for the modern equipment you are using---You cannot turn a Model A Ford into a Roll Royce.

My Mitsubishi ws-55809 works fine although the screen turn pink but the picture is still visible. After a while it goes back to perfect color. Then it repeats this back and forth. Sometimes it will fl

Problem is likely on the small circuit board that plugs onto the bottom of the red picture tube---be careful as dangerous voltages in and around that board---each of the three picture tubes has a small board that plugs on the end of the tube.

Best solution to improve picture quality. Screen

Try to turn the contrast down. It can really help out a lot. If this is not working look up your tv's best settings. has some great settings under the forums.

If all else fails but a calibration dvd and go thru the settings. Some dreamworks and disney dvds even have them right under the disc extras. Hope I could help!

by the way, remember to cut some of the light in your room if it is well lit. It will help make the picture look better as your eyes can distiguse the light and darks better

Picture size on HD is distorted.

You did not say what kind of repair work was done on your set but suspect that is was a failure in the convergence circuit. That said I also suspect that aftermarket IC's where installed that are not up to par with the originals. Good Quality IC's and undoing the adjustment already made should cure your problem with minimal labor time involved. To do a Full Convergence Alignment will cover up the problem but the IC's won't last followed by replacement again with quality parts and another full alignment.
