Mitsubishi WS-65807 problems

Recently, my tv started getting some, what looked like convergence problems. The red and blue were separating. The tv picture was also bowing inwards, distorting the picture. A yellow sort of tint was also apprearing on peoples faces. I tried to reset the convergence back to factory defaults, to no avail. Do you know what could be wrong and how much it could cost to fix? Thanks! Sean Hale

You need the two convergence IC's replaced part# STK392-570. About a $300-$400 repair.

Mitsubishi ws-65807 series ... convergence going bad? i tried fixing it several times on menu: advance, the convergence red and blue looks well for only about 3mins or so then goes out of sync...

It is very common on these and other sets. Your ws65807 is a V17 chassis that uses two of the Stk-392-570 convergence chips.

These are especially prone to being flaky or intermittant.

I am available here in the Market Place on Fixya to answer this and can provide in that area start to finish step by step instructions for this repair.

Parts cost would be under 30 dollars.

Let me know if you have any questions. SD TECH

I have a 55 inch rear projection mitsubishi tv. it recently has started showing what looks to be white spots when viewed at a distance on a dark screen. when you look at it closely it actually is red green...

It is called Convergence. You have three CRTs. Red, blue, Green. When they are not aligned, you will see the individual colors. See if you can do some alignment in the users menu. Look for Converge or Convergence in the menu. Either under video or setup.

For past 6 Months The scren was bowing Horizontally and now it has sever ghosting.. What to do this TV is about 8 years old Model Number WS-65807

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.
This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.
