Question about Mitsubishi CS-35505 35" TV
We got this TV from my folks when they graded to a flat screen. On the way to our house the TV tipped over and fell rather hard. It worked fine for a few months but then the color started to suddenly fade as if we were looking at the TV through a fog, and when the screen went black we could see a small green line across the screen. The line zig zag from the top to the bottom of the screen like the old pong video game. The line never reached the end of the screen, but instead would turn back and “bounce” at about 15 degrees downward (or upward). At first I could just tap the unit or even stomp on the floor and it would flick back to normal, lately it seems to be flickering back and forth into foggy state constantly. Last night we had the fuse in the family room go out sense then the TV has not had a good picture. Just to be clear, when I say foggy, what I mean is that the color is faded, like there is no contrast. Thanks for your help. Ken
It seems your set has a loose conection in the high voltage circuits,in fact by now it should have many loose conections in different areas like the power supply and the horizontal deflection circuits,if you are familiar with tv service you can use the information as the first step to take,some of the loose conections are hard to see even for the trained technician but the one giving you this problem should not be hard to see,if you are not too familiar with tv service be safe and call for assistance from a servicer a least for an estimate.

SOURCE: Black screen and no sound
I realized that there is a 90 day warrantee on parts and a 30 day limited warrantee on labor for the repairs that were done. As I stated, the original problem was the picture shrinking after a few minutes of the set being on. The repair firm took my control board with them. When they came back to install the repaired control board in my set there was a load spark during the installation, after which I had a black screen and no sound. The repair firm took my set them and installed a "CAP Kit", a STRM6511, and a "D1881". The set worked perfectly until two days ago.
I called the repair firm an they are coming out this Thursday to check out my TV. I am hoping the problem is related to the failure of one of the parts installed to fix a similar problem which occurred after the sparking incident.

You definitely have bad solder grounds. I have repaired a few of these. You will need a TV tech pull the boards out and resolder them. The worst board would be the one on the left [signal board, has rca jacks. rf connector]. And they may as well solder the second board. You will have a restored TV when completed. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!
