    I really prefer to find the lamps, no matter the costs. I LOVE this television and want to keep it for another 3-5 years.



    Would Mitsubishi not sell replacement lamps for older models like mine?? It's a 1998 design.

    I'm willing to pay, money is not an issue.

I have looked through my normal TV parts stores and have been unable to locate one.

However, do you have a part number of the bulb? It is possible it can be cross referenced. Pull the bad one in question and see if there are any numbers on it and post back here to let me know. Please do not rate this solution until we are done or I will be unable to help you further. Thank you.

Hi sir, finding a spare lamp for that TV is like hitting the jackpot.. try to call express repair center @ 1-877-260-9965. ask for the VS6061 lamp. if they don't have it in stock anymore, you'll probably have a better chance if you'll just search for a defective vs6061 and just salvage it for spare parts... sorry sir, but your tv probably broke down because its probably a sign for you to get a new 50" LCD tv =) cheers

Hi,
Its an old model TV and I'm afraid Lamps ( 3 CRTs red-green-blue) are not available in any parts-shop.
I would recommend to buy new TV instead of spending money on its 3 lamps, if available.
Thanks.

    I'm afraid, no lamp is available any where for this TV VS-60601
    Please check with local TV repair shops as they might have any similar model dead TV inside to get its lamps.
    Mitsubishi provide parts up to 5 years of model launched.
    Thanks.

The outer screen of my tv is cracked and i was trying to find out where i could order a replacement


Idealy if you contact Mitsubishi online they can issue a list of service centres that can supply a new screen. Otherwise, have a look at ebay, you may find a supplier there.
You will need to order the correct screen as it may be made up of two parts, an outer screen and an inner optical screen, depending on its production age.
Hope that helps.

VS60601 Picture yesterday, none today


That model will usually leak coolant directly onto the vertical output area and that will put the tubes into protective blanking and you will have sound but no picture.

1998 Mitsubishi vs-60601 picture is dull and not as vibrant as it should be


the first thing I would do is to clean the lenses of the CRTs they may be coated with dust that will dim the picture. other than that the CRTs may be failing since the phospher of CRTs fade in brightness over time and the only solution is to replace all three CRTs. the CRTs I have discovered are no longer availible.

VS-60601 Mitsubishi Problem...


That model is famous for the CRts leaking onto the chassis which causes all kinds of problems and can cause the main circuit board to short as well as destroy the solder. Try looking at the board for evidence of a pastey substance that would indicate CRT coolant leakage. Let me know what you find.

Mitsubishi VS 60601 picture


You need to change the convergence IC's my friend. If you know how to solder and work on printed circuit boards, this is an easy repair, BUT if you have no experience, play it safe and let a pro do this repair for you. Good Luck
