Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

Purple lines moving diagonally on screen

I had this hdtv for almost 2 years and now it starting to have these lines moving on the screen. I thought it was the cable tv but I unplugged all the component cables and its still there.

The HDMI port works fine. All the component connections has this problem.

Anyone might have a clue what is going on?

Re: Purple lines moving diagonally on screen

This happened to me last year with the same set. Had it repaired - they replaced the "PCB Formatter" board and the problem was solved. But unfortunately, less than a year later, the problem has coem back. Good luck!

I have Diagonal lines moving across the screen.

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

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. This is called convergence.

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,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with 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 - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture
