Mitsubishi HD1080 series 65 concave picture screen w/lines

I have a Mitsubishi HD1080 series 65" TV, and the picture quality seems to be going. The picture will suddenly go concave on both the top and bottom of screen and at the same time a lot of colorful horizontal squiggly lines go through whole screen. Will sometime stay like this for a long time and other times just a few seconds. Does not seem to matter if TV is warm or cold. And it is getting more frequent. Is there any soultion to this problem?

    Which im thinking needs to be done by a TV repairman, seeing how i have no idea what that means. Is this fix worth doing or would it be better to just get a new one. In other words is this an expensive fix?

    I had the same problem with a 55" and then it just shut itself off. now when I turn it on, it shuts off after 2-3 seconds. no pictures, just green power LED.

    I have the same problem with the concavity and the color appears as a double vision as well.

    Yes, I have the same problem. Sometimes it lasts just a few minutes. Its been this way for the last 2 days. Any idea of the cost to repair?

Contact your local service rep as this sounds like a "not so easy fix' related to the main board or power supply (known issues with Mits boards, especially the capacitors). Cleaning, resetting, re-configuring will not likely make any difference. Verify the problem occurs across all input modes (such as DVD, etc). before taking any service actions.

You have poor contacts and or dry joints. Resoldering on the convergeance panel and powersupply/line timebase board will probably fix it.
It should take less than an hour in labour terms.

I have the same problem. At first I thought the TV just needed some warming up because after a while it would resolve itself. Now, even after hours of being "resolved" it will occassionally revert back to the concave image! Have you gotten any feedback or resolution?

Red and blue colors go across the screen. picture looks concave.


Greetings joanne7,

The issue you are having could be caused by your television needing the convergence adjusted. During production your televison has the three picture tubes that are converged to form a single image on the screen. Over time these can come out of adjustment.
If you go to this link http://download.jazel.net/misc/filecache/b8/b89bca4c8b740315d378e8ed030461c5_1227-517SeriesOwnersGuide.pdf and check pages 57 and 58, it gives you a very detailed guide on adjusting your convergence. I am aware this model number is slightly different than yours, but I own a 47" Mitsubishi and this is the exact procedure we use to do our convergence so I am confident it is fairly universal.

I hope this helps!
