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

Re: 50" Mitsubushi Projection TV

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.

Tv shuts down and i have to turn it on and change channels to get a picture and the color is fading

It system memory IC has the trouble. It is an eight solder terminal IC, can be located very near to the main system control IC. Replace it with same number. Its' number is most important to note, when you buy a new one.
A skilled job indeed.

My Samsung TXS3082WH 30 inc wide screen TV seems to be losing color and going in and out and i notice when you watch cartoons its fine but when it goes to actual shows or channels with normal footage it...

There have been a lot of problems with the Samsung sets, one dealer I know had so many complaints about the ones he sold he stopped selling them and switch to another brand and he has been trouble free ever since. To answer your question they have problems with the screens, color texture, lines, fade out to name a few, from what you have described you have at least two or three issues, considering the history I would replace it.

Color Adjustments....

well it all depends on where the tv is located to, if it is in a room with little or no light( windows, lamps) you will want you brightness to be a lil lighter hince not makin the picture as dark, and vise versa for light rooms, u'll wanna turn the brightness down a lil bit to accomidate this room, as for the others i'd say a lil over 50% on them, thats how my office tv is set up, hope this helps, jason

Faded Picture

I would have to say it does sound like the CRT is reaching its end. The thing that points this out that the picture gradually gets a little bit better as it warms up. It most likely isn't worth the cost to fix it.

Color fades in and out of picture

The first thing I would check is the antenna or cable connection into the set. When an analog TV signal is weak, the first thing to go is the color, then the picture, then the sound. If you have another TV, connect it to the very same cable or antenna connection and see if it fails the same way, too. Make sure you just disconnect the cable end right where it goes into the failing TV and connect it to the other TV - don't disconnect the antenna cable from the wall for this check. If the second set does not fail, gently pull on the antenna wire - not too hard, you just want to put a little tension on it to see if it makes the color cut out. Reconnect the first one and try again. If it's fine now, the connection was loose. If not, it has a tuner problem that must be repaired. Also, when you look at the end of a TV connector, the center wire should stick out just a little bit, like in the attached photo. If it doesn't stick out as bit, it won't make good contact, and will result in a weak signal. I appreciate your rating if you find this helpful.
