Question about Mitsubishi WT-42311 42" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Red tint on the entire picture

I've had this model since may of 2003. Never any problems until about the last year. First I had a problem with green & blue "ghosts". No matter what you did the crossbars wouldn't line up. Forunately I had the extended warranty and two modules were replaced.

Today I have a heavy red tint on the entire picture. I first noticed a line rolling across the screen that started at the bottom and rolled to the top of the screen. After about 45 minutes I changed channels and now have this red tiny over the entire screen. Any ideas what could possibly be wrong?

I'm not sure if this set is still covered under the extended warranty..

Re: Red tint on the entire picture

Always try your extended warranty!.....Probable cause = bad
red tube. One adjustment may help---turn down red screen
control, located behind technician access panel in front of set.

Have 57 " Toshiba projection TV there is way too much red in picture

TV has 3 CRTs, red, blue, green. Its possible that you have a bad blue or green crt. If that were the case the red would be prevalent and the pic would be reddish. The tv has a picture "level" adjustment that if done correctly could get it looking correct. Its probably best to have a tech. do it since you can make it worse if you do not know what you are doing, also there are high voltages present. Good luck

Display has red tint across entire screen. Could it be the bulb? If so, is that still available? Approximate cost?

two possible solutions----either a problem on the small circuit board that is connected to the RED picture tube OR the red screen control is turned up too high. These sets have a small square block with RED,Green, Blue screen controls(same place also has red, green, blue Focus controls) if you remove the speaker grill you will find an inspection plate made of masionite---the focus/screen block is visable behind it----get a flashlight and look carefully at the block---one row of 3 plastic shafts is Focus(don't touch those) the other 3 are Screens(you should see R, G, B marked) go to a blank video input(one with nothing attached) and turn the RED SCREEN CONTROL JUST SLIGHTLY TO THE LEFT UNTIL the red goes away.

Picture has a green shade

Sounds like your red picture tube is not emitting enough brightness to balance the colors. A temporary solution could be to slightly increase the screen voltage of the red CRT to give a good black and white picture when the color control is turned all the way down. If the set has not been serviced in the last 5 years or so, and you're not ready for a new HDTV set, it may be worthwhile to get a technican to look at it and clean the dust off the lenses and mirror and evaluate whether a picture tube rejuvination might work along with the gray scale tracking adjustments.
