Question about Mitsubishi WS-65819 TV

1 Answer

Bow like image

The Mitsubishi WS-65819 has worked great until the last month. Now the picture will periodically bow in the middle (Image from top left/right and bottom left/right will bow towards the middle of the screen) of the screen and distorts the picture usually while watching a show. This occurs for both DirectTV and DVD movies and is increasing in frequency. Any suggestions on what is causing this? Is this something that i can repair myself even if i am a novice? Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks!

You likely have bad convergence output ic's type #STK392-570.  These can be purchased at UED 800-648-6657.  You will need to remove the board they are mounted on to be able to usolder the old ones and resolder the new ones.  These will be mounted on heat sinks.

Picture Bowed towards the center

It is a convergence problem, probably one of the convergence ICs has blown and must be replaced. Call the number in the last pages of your user manual to get repair service in your area.

MITS WS-65869 The green CRT is creating a warped image.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Your TV may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects

Concaved distorted picture in 1080 Mitsubishi 65" TV.

This is a convergence rpoblem that is either bad connections on the pins of the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder and are comfortable working inside TVs where there are potentially dangerous high voltages, let me know and I'll provide additional details and instructions for fixing this yourself.

Good Day,jmurf1037;
Yes, you have a convergence problem.From what you say it sounds like the Convergence IC's have failed. Part number 267P150010, STK392-570, replace both IC's. They are on the middle board secured to a large heat sink.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

Intermittent convergence issue became permanent

Hi Ed,

Your convergence amplifiers are definitely bad. The user manual will not work, since it is the same manual that comes with the set when it was new. The service manual can be found at:

Best Regards,


P.S. Thanks in advance for rating me!

Bowlike effect convergence all screwwed up

I suspect you originally had an intermittent solder connection on the convergence circuit board. This may have damaged the convergence IC's on that board by now if repairing those connections doesn't fix the set.
