Question about Mitsubishi WT-46809 46" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Wt-46809 has convergance issues

Bought this mitsubishi tv a couple months ago and have not had a problem until recently. The convergance goes screwy when the tv is first turned on. Sometimes it will correct itself other times I have to tap on the side of the tv for it to go back to normal, but it is getting worse. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Thank you for the help!

Replacing the Convergence IC's should do the trick. But it is not a easy repair do to the disassembly requierments. I would recommend calling Mitsubishi at 18003322119 to get a local service facility to come out and give you a estimate to repair.

I have a 2-2 error code and tv shuts off after a couple seconds any ideas?


Thats almost always caused by a shorted convergence circuit. Installing a convergence repair kit will usually solve that issue. You can get the convergence repair kit for that model which contains the parts and the CD with repair instructions from www.tvrepairworld.com

your problem is most probably in convergence circuit.  very common for this model to have convergence output i.c.'s go bad  also possible that a fused resistor or two has failed.

Mitsubishi wt-46809 not turning on


Your convergence amp ICs have most likely failed and that will shut the TV down. You need to replace both convergence ICs they are both STK392-570 you can get replacement ICs with free instalation instructions at the following link.

Mitsubishi WT-46809 Intermittent color problem


I have the MITSUBISHI WT-46809 46" HDTV CONVERGENCE IC PROBLEM as well. I just ordered the STK392-570 IC for 7 bucks and I am going to attempt to switch them both out (two of them). I am getting the overstated "bow tie", "RBG separation" issue that you are talking about. I am going to attempt to de-solder the intergrated chips and put new ones in. I figure it is worth the shot, insted of paying 350-650 bucks to have some **** with average skills do the same I figure it is better to have this **** with average skills do it and keep the cash. I will let you know how it goes.... DJ
