Need A Lamp

So i just recently got this tv from a friend and the picture sometimes turns red. I was told that the red lamp or projection needs to be replaced. I have tried to find one and have no idea where to get it or how much it would cost.

Re: Need A Lamp

Better pry it's not the CRT ( 251C080010) these are No Longer Avalible But with a set this old (1996) and being a Mitsubishi you probley have a bazzilion capacitors that have weakened up over it's 12 years In another post you say you got a convergance problem those Ic's STK391-020 are still avalible, but where you might start is to simply resolder the entire dflection and signal board. Mitshubishis are well know for running hot and burn the crt's making the pix terrible. Then after spending a few hundred on Ic's capacitor, resstors and such do ya know what you will have? Thats right a 12 year old set. This may be a fun one to play with but don't plan on making this the center piece of your entertament center

No picture or sound
