Mitsubishi VS-50707 - Scrambled picture

After I turn my TV on, the picture is scrambled/wavy and then in about 15 minutes the picture is normal. It couldn't possibly be warming up . . . could it?

    picture is intially scrambled, like a horizontal hold problem. after a few minutes it unscrambles, but vertical columns can be seen in the picture if the background is dark. the problem on my tv has now escalated to where it turns itself off as soon as i turn it on.

    I might be more patient than most. I first began to have this problem several months ago. I turn the tv on and it flickers and is wavy for a while before eventually calming down and becoming normal. But recently it has started to take longer and longer to get to the normal stage and now it is pretty much wavy all the time. HELP!

    My 1993 Mitsubishi VX-50VA Projection TV scrolls.  Sometimes it stabilizes, but mostly not.  It does this with the DVD player and antennae.  We got it from a friend and don't know how long it has been doing this.  Any suggestions?

On the signal board replace the caps by the 5/9 volt regulators. c2p04 is the main culprit. 6 caps in total can be changed. I believe c2p05 also.

Wavy line or scrambled picture when l turn the tv on it takes 30mins for the picture to come in clear

If you have a normal picture with lines through it, or if the picture jumps, tears or rolls, you have a Hyper Board that is failing. The last I checked, the Hyper Board is not available from Toshiba and has not been available for a number of years.
I hope this helps,

Scrambled picture mitsubishi VS-60805

Hello deltamech,

Are you using your component video cables? if you are check to see if you are using the correct inputs. Look at the babck of your TV and see if the RGB (Lettering) matches with the box you are connecting to. What I am talking about is the YP(b)P(r) vs the YC(b)C(r) they are incompatable with each other.

Check that and if that is the case either match the two proper RGBs up or use another interface.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Mitsubishi vs-55707 or vs-50707????? bouncing horizontal lines weird color

If the picture looks like a 3D then you have a convergence failure.
I would suggest to visually inspect the STK Ics for dry or crystallized solder joints.

Mitsubishi VS-50707 shuts down sporadically

you can do a self-diagnosis test by pressing the menu and input/device button on set for 5 sec and see what error code it gives you. Count the blinks followed by a short pause then more blinks. This is the error code.
