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

I have a Mitsubishi WS-55807 and the colors started to separate - you can reset it by turning if off and on again and it goes away but in time returns, starts getting blury then the colors split up - just...

In your On Screen Display menu (OSD), you should have a place that says "convergence". As a sub heading to this it will say "Auto-Convergence". This is where you want to be! Hit OK under AUTO, and watch the magic happen! If your set happens NOT to have AUTO, you'll have to do it manually. You're going to make the lines all match up doing one color at a time until all three colors are done! It's not hard at all. It may take a little patience at first, but just think of all the money your saving by not having a TV tech come out to your house and you'll be fine!

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
