Question about Mitsubishi VS-55707 TV
TV stopped working the other day. I had been having trouble with my pictures fading in color. It seemed to get a bit worse as the months went by. I would give the side a little smack and the lines would ajust back in order just fine. However, just the other day when I pushed the power button on, it clicked back off within a few seconds. Not sure why?? Cannot get anything from the TV other than click on -- click off. Is it time to retire the Mits, or can this be an inexpensive repair? Thank you, Reginald
Usually what I find in those sets with that symptom is that the solder joints have cracked on the convergence output IC. When this happens you may see the colors no longer lining up on the screen, and slapping the side might temporarily straighten it out again. After a while the convergence IC will short out inside, which overloads the convergence power supply, possibly shorting a diode and/or burning the resistors. The computer senses that the power supply is not working right and shuts the set back off. When I make a housecall for a set like that I charge $150, but some shops charge up to $400, so ask around.
