Question about Mitsubishi WS-55859 55" Rear Projection Television

TV coloring messed up

The colors are messed up on the TV sometimes. The red blue and green will separate showing 3 different pictures of the same thing, but only in that individual color. It will eventually straighten out but after a long amount of time and every once in a while it will go back. Does it need a cleaning or a part fixed or what? I don't know anything about TVs except how to use them.

    My convergence seems to be off. When I go into the menu to allign the convergence the red cross hair looks correct but the blue is way off to the right side and will not come back to the center. mine is either a WS-55511 or WS-55711.

    Color is messed up, showing 3 bright colors on the edges. The picture is curved and shows the picture in the middle.

Open the front panel and bang (lightly) on the large heat sink a few times. This will correct the problem, but for how long varies. You may need to resolder the leads for a more permanent fix.

I had a repairman out and they replaced some major components to eliminate this problem and it cost about $500. This was a temporary solution and the color was never really satisfactory again. Donated the unit to Salvation Army. The new DLP TVs are worth checking out.

Picture shows 3 colors on everything.example.if there's a hand.there's 3 hands and each is a different color Blue

There are actually 3 projectors inside, each handling one of those three colors which, together, make all the other colors. This is called "out of register" where they are aiming slightly differently. These need to be adjusted.

I have a hitachi 50c20 tv and it has a red tint/hue across the whole screen

Are you using component cables into the TV? It sounds like one of the 3 video cables may have come out saturating the red colors. Check your cabling int he back of the TV, see if you remove 1 by one if that changes the colors. Each cable on its own should have a picture with either red green or blue colors. If any of them are missing the picture then the colors will get messed up when all 3 are plugged in. If you are not using component cables then check the color settings on your TV. Somewhere int he menu of the television you should have something like picture display settings that let you adjust the colors. Check and make sure that the reds are not over configured or the others are not set too low. You may also want to check that your source is proper as well. Check that other sources look okay or if it is with all different connectors/sources that the issue occurs on.

Blurry and colors are seperated red green white

if you are viewing from a projection tv, chances are you have to go thru the menu of the tv to 'picture tuning'. here it gives you different things that could be fixed. one to look for is 'lamp alignment'. It should show all the colors and lines with directions to bring them into focus. This should fix the blurriness and 3-d red/green/white separations. hope this helps you!

TV picture is red.

Normal color picture is composed with 3 colors R-G-B (Red-Green-Blue). Picture turns Red means: Missing Green and Blue colors (many reasons: bad contacts, projector tubes dead, and other...). Try to give some "tabs" to diagnose ... I don't know what is the type of your Projection TV, how long you owned it, to have more idea.

My tv was dropped and now the color is messed up how can i fix it

Unfortunately, this can't be fixed without replacing the picture tube. The drop caused a piece called the shadow mask inside the tube to warp or break loose. When that happens, the red, green and blue beams in the tube don't hit the right places on the screen. There isn't any way to repair this kind of damage.

If you had professional movers doing the job, their insurance should cover some or all of the cost of repairing the TV (replacing the tube, that is) or replacing the set. I wish I could give you better news.
