Question about Mitsubishi VS-45605 50" Rear Projection Television

RGB problems - different model

I couldn't locate my model on the site, but I hope someone can help me. I have a 52" Rear Projection Mitsubishi VS-461RS made in 1987. I bought it used and it's worked fine for some time now, but last night, in the middle of watching a DVD, the colors on screen split up - the red and blue appear slightly out of phase with the rest of the picture, and not only are they staggered off the main picture, but they're also weaving up and down around the yellow/main picture. I tried to adjust with the test dials, but they don't make much difference. If anyone can offer me any help in this matter, I'd appreciate it. Best case, something I can do myself, since the TV is rather large and would be a pain to take to a repair shop. I am pretty handy with electronics, but I'll defer to more experienced heads, if necessary. Thanks!

By the age of the unit you probably have a few cold solder connection in and around the power supply and video sections/

I'm sorry to tell you that on these units the video tube and lamp are the first things to go. If it is not under warranty it is a costly repair. You might consider craigslist as you can get some great deals. Another option is to unplug it and set it aside. Go on line to the Mitsubishi site at this link
see about getting an extended warranty. Make sure that there is someone in your area that honors there warranty. Hope this helps.

Getting to the chassis of mitsubishi wd-52525

This is not something that you should attempt on your own. There are dozens of capacitors on several different circuit boards that will need replacement. Furthermore, just the disassembly process is quite complicated and time consuming, not to mention locating all the bad caps and then the re-installation process afterwards.

Mitsubishi will rebuild this chassis at their facility. Contact them so they can locate a company in your area that can handle this for you. Be aware though that this can cost $600-$700 or more between parts and labor. Perhaps someone at Mitsubishi will help pay for this repair.

The colors on my TV are really messed up. Help?

You have bad convergence ICs. They are located on large aluminum heat sinks usually near the rear of the chassis. The number generally looks like STK###-###. If you have no experience soldering or in electronic repair I cannot walk you through it on this web site. The repair cost should not exceed $150.00 at a reputable repair site. I would suggest getting someone to take care of this. Good luck.
