Question about Mitsubishi VS-50605 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Picture "jumps" at startup for about 20 minutes until warm.

When I turn my set on, the picture seems to jump up and down erratically. It stops and looks fine after about 20 minutes or when it is warm. What could be the problem?

You have some leaky filter caps. They are: C2C52 = 10 MFD 50 VOLT (off the base of Q2C51 on the signal board)Also check C2P05 = 100 MFD 16 VOLT (off pin #3 of IC2P01 on the signal board) and C2P03,C2P08 = 100 MFD 16 VOLT both on the signal board.

When first turn on, picture jumps up and down for a minute or so then stops when set warms up

There is very little that can be done for this. It is a problem that occurs to all rear projection televisions sooner or later.

"Fonzie-ing it" ? It's terrible that I understood what that meant. lol

Sounds like the tuner has a bad solder joint. You may need a Repairman.

Picture Jumps/flashes for first 5 minutes

There is a module called a hyper board that is vertically mounted near the jack panel. Inside the module are 10mf/25v capacitors they are grtting weak. The module is fully shielded and pluggs into a socket. the module has 4 tabs (2 on each end) that must be unsoldered before it can be unplugged. This repair should be done by a qualified technician. The caps are surface mounts and very small. Unless you have excellent soldering skills and a rock steady hand DO NOT ATTEMPT to repair this problem on your own.

Wavy Screen on Startup

I gather from your post that wavy can mean two possible things as the TV comes on, you see the picture flow like ocean waves? In this case you may have 60Hz hum modulating with the picture, this is actually unlikely these days, but I have heard it happens sometimes. The other thing it could be is light horizontal tearing. This happens when the horizontal frequency is too high or too low. You are not going to like my solution because I feel that for problems like this the set must be analyzed not just subjected to "shotgun troubleshooting", so here I go, Take the TV to a repair shop.

Jumping picture for a few minutes

theres a bad capacitor off the sweep power supply or possibly in the main power supply. Most likly though it would be where i mentioned first. There are no user serviceable parts inside this set Unless your a repair person so best thing for you to do is call in a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck
