This set needs a major repair. there are bad connections on the power board and a fuse is blown. You pretty much need a technician to fix this.

HI, this is typical convergence chip failure. you will need to replace the convergence board in this set asap. this will fix this issue you are experiencing.

WS-55857 uses two STK-392-570 convergence IC's----you may have bad solder connections on them but what is more likely(I have seen this in sets that Mitsubishi made that use this chip) is that some of the pins are broken loose inside one or both of the chips.
Considering the labor to get the board out to resolder it, might as well just replace BOTH of the chips------Usually this repair can be done right in your home and takes about an hour.
If you are able to do it yourself you can buy both chips for less than 15 dollars on Ebay; if you need help I have complete step by step instructions for this repair that tells what you need and how to do the repair---if interested I can email them to you.
If you are not able to do the repair most shops charge 300-400 for this kind of repair; look in your area and if they say "needs to go to shop" keep looking; any good tech can do this repair right in your home.
Now is the slow time of year for TV repair shops so look around--I do this kind of repair here for 200-250 depending on the set --right in someones home! I have done hundreds of these sets.
If you need any help or would like the instructions reply to this comment here.
I do this for free here so if it helped you take a minute and give me a vote here.
