Question about Mitsubishi WS-55807 TV

1 Answer

WS-55807: Images are dark on right side of display, but will go away after 3-4 hours.

The problem with my TV is that images are dark on the right side of the display whenever there are white images on the left. The bright images on the left leave what appear to be a streaky shadow on everything to the right side of that image. Objects above or below that streak are not affected. For example if there is white text on the left middle of the screen, everything to the right of that text and on the same line becomes dark. Anything above or below that text is not affected. Another thing, is that after about 3-4 hours, the issue is no longer seen, and images are normal. I'm guessing there may be a loose heatsink somewhere, and once the tv warms up enough, the heatsink makes contct with an IC/microchip, causing the issue to go away. Any thoughts/comments is greatly appreciated.

You could be on the right track get some freeze spray and go around all the parts to see if you can make it act up, same with heatgun or hair dryer when first turned on heat one area at a time to narrow your problem down

Projection TV when turned on picture is dark can view slight images until dinning room light is turned on

Try hooking the TV to a different outlet fed by a different breaker. Does the problem go away? If so, the culprit may be a wiring problem in your house that is causing the TV not to get enough power unless the dining room light is on.If in doubt, consult an electrician to make sure both the dining room light and TV outlet circuits are working properly.

You have a convergence problem, and the sooner you get the set into the shop the less it will cost you. It seems that you may only have bad or cold solder connections on the stk convergence ics. If you keep hitting it to fix it, its goingg to surge the parts then youll be looking at 300 bucks or more to repair. GET THAT SET IN ASAP. Good Luck
