Question about Mitsubishi VS-45607 45" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Mitsubishi 10 yr old rear projection

I have had this 45" TV since new @ 10 yrs. Picture is still good. My problem is the brightness adjustment is maxed out. also TV takes longer to come on and sound takes @ 20 minutes to come on and work properly. Trying to get an idea if worth repair expense or just buy another tv. I know nothing about tv repairs but if just a matter of changing a module or lamp...plug in or unplug...simple enough.....Nobody has ever serviced this TV. Never has needed servicing. Thanks for the advice.

    MIKE NJ....

    Thank you mike for all your help. I checked my TV age and it is 12 yrs old....to replace lamp,regulator,maybe sharpness & contrast parts or adjustments + 125+ service charges...could be @ $800.00.....I am looking at an RCA 50" dlp hdtv..with table for $1168.....I think I will go with the new RCA...haven't found bad reviews.

    Again thank you for all your information and advice.

Well, there is no lamp or simple part you can unplug and plug in. I have seen a couple of those sets with that symptom recently and it is caused by a faulty 9 volt regulator on the small signal board. This is not an easy part to change and the repair should absolutely be handled by a tech experienced in Mitsubishi projection sets.

    When I do a housecall to fix a set like that I charge $125, but shops in your area will vary so be sure to ask around. If you were happy with the picture before it acted up then it is definately worth repairing.

I have a grundig GU19WDVD10 tv and the picture mode has got mixed up and the quality is not right. What numbers should the brightness, contast, colour etc be on? Thanks


In most cases, 75% contrast, 40 to 50% brightness and 35 to 45% color will be best. Adjust the picture sharpness control in between 10 and 25%

I find the colour contrast is very dark could you send me ideal colour settings for perfect clarity thanks


Hello
Adjust the contrast to 55 to 70%; brightness to 45 to 55% and colour to your viewing taste. Now the brightness will be very low I thinks. Advance the brightness and contrast after setiing the colour to Zero. Adjust for a well defined B/W picture first. The advance the coulour. Take reference of the face colour of a news reader at studio. The picture will be perfect. OK.

PANASONIC 36" TAU --- NEED HELP


Sounds terminal. Companies build things with "planned obsolescence" in mind. In other words. You buy a TV today, and the warranty says it's good for 4 years. 4 years and 3 months later, it dies.

I hope someone else can help you.
Good Luck!

Picture is very dim


there is a problem in the flyback section of the tv set. the fly back has two knobs, one for screen and the other for focus. use the screen knob to adjust the brighness. if it did not help, either check the capacitors around the flyback or change the fly back with a new one. good luck

Vs 4561 weak picture


Good Day, Techwanab;

Look for this to be your problem: CHECK FOR OPEN L2C50 PART #325C146030 ON THE SIGNAL PCB, OR BAD CONNECTIONS AND LEAKY CAPS IN THAT AREA.

Hope this was helpful and not too late.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

Screen Flashing


In a Sony TV, the most common cause of the picture flashing on and off is a weak picture tube. When the set was new, it took about 5 to 10 seconds for the picture to appear once the set was turned on. This is normal. If you have been noticing that it has been taking longer and longer to first appear, this is the clear signal that one of the picture tubes is getting tired. There is a circuit called IK Blanking that monitors each picture tube and adjusts them as the tubes age, so you always see a good picture. When one of the tubes has weakened so much that it cannot produce enough brightness in the picture, the circuit shuts the picture off completely. I guess Sony does not want you to see a tired, dull picture. When the tube is right on the edge of being too weak to keep the picture on, the picture will flash on and off, and it will also take much longer beofre it first turns on. The good news is that the Sony picture tubes always respond beautifully to reactivation (CRT Recharge) but you will need a qualified tech familiar with Sony projection sets to handle that repair for you.

Picture appears to be going out


Make sure the brightness is set at about 45% of it's max setting and the contrast or picture control is set at about 90% or almost all the way up. The rest of the picture settings should be: Color about 45% Tint should be at 50% Sharpness should also be about 50%. These settings are my default settings when I am a customers home. The set should look good at this point. If not then the main PCB is suspected of being the problem. Hope this helps.
