Question about Mitsubishi VS-55707 TV

50" Mitsubushi Projection TV --- 12yrs old

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

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.

I have a tv set that is 12yrs old and now there is green line on the screen, is it time to throw this set away?

Hi Sheila,
12 yrs of service is already fine. If you are going to send it to repair shop and spend around $50-$100 depend upon the faulty parts and you didn't know how long it will last after it repaired, I've suggest you to upgrade to more high end unit. It will give you more quality picture and experienced the advance technology.
Hope it may help you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

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.

12 yr. old 25" G.E. picture fading

I gotta love it when people make up answers. There is no such thing as a "contrass module". I'm assuming the poster meant "contrast". The trouble is your 12-year-old picture tube. It's gotten weak and isn't getting as bright or sharp as it used to. Picture tube manufacturers estimate the useful life of a tube at about 7 years today. There are adjustments inside that might help some, but you need a new picture tube. It's going to cost a lot more than $60 to $75 for that. You're better off replacing the TV.

Sounds like the red picture tube could be shorting internally which would cause the "all red" condition. In which case you'd have to replace the red tube. Are there horizontal (slightly slanted) lines through the picture as well when this is happening and a very very bright screen? If so it's most likely the tube.

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.

Sounds like you have a problem with the blue gun in your picture tube or its drive circuit. You might remove the back cover and gently tap on the neck of the picture tube using a plastic screwdriver handle while watching the screen in a mirrow. If the picture flashes back on or on and off then the picture tube is the problem. If this is a projection tv you have three separate tubes : red, green & blue. you'd need to tap the blut one.Gently!!!! Stargazer
