Question about Mitsubishi VS-55707 TV

1 Answer

50" Mitsubushi Projection 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.

Fadeing of picture RCA P52937


Sounds like it could be your bulb going bad I would check some places like rivervalleyelectronics.net or hdtvpartstore.com and see if they have your bulb is in stock it may not be to cheap but i beats buying a TV. I would direct you to the manufacturer but they probably have stopped supporting this type of tv.

The color on my mitsubishi model # vs-5041 is faded and foggy.


Hi, did you try a color convergence? I used to work in Best Buy and one of the key things about rear projection TVs and the reason they push those service plans on you is that the tubes/colors need to be calibrated each year. You can do this yourself by checking out the following website:

The color seems to be fading. NOt a clear picture.


Likely the picture tubes are getting weak from old age. Not much you can do about this.

It seems like the color wheel might start to fail.
Do you hear any abnormal sound(s) from the TV when ramdon color appears.
Would you be able to check and make sure all the fans are working properly?
