Question about Mitsubishi WS-55809 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Blurrrry small letters and numbers

Overall my tv works pretty good, I'm just having trouble adjusting it so that the letters in the words are clear also numbers like scores in basketball and football games. I've already tried converging using the cross hairs and the grid, it seems to only happen with the smaller letters and numbers, very blurrrrrrry.

You are describing a normal condition if you are watching
less than 480P signal source.....I would guess that 1080 I
Hi-Def signal looks much clearer and DVD playback OK,too.
If you are feeding signal in RF, composite or S-video the result
will be what you described ! ..........................T.

Is there any way to adjust the screen image size? I recently connected a computer to the DVI input, and at 1280x720 there is quite a bit of overscan. Is it possible to reduce the image size?

Change the display settings on the computer desktop, try various sizes.

If using programs like word or firefox change display size with shift/mousewheel. Also change font sizes for best view. Don''t worry about resolution numbers, adjust for good picture.

Recently replaced blown lamp for 50HM67 50 inch tv. Now have picture but clarity is off. Picture / screen words are very blurry. Toshiba referred a local repair company who mentioned that the problem...

If the picture was good before the lamp blew, there might be dust/splatter on the window in front of the lamp. Pull out the lamp assembly and look at the small square glass window that the light shines into. It should be clear and clean. If it is not, clean it gently with isoprophonol alcohol or screen cleaner.
By the way, there is no such thing as convergence adjustment on DLP TVs.

My convergence adjustment is not aligned

The fact that the magic focus doesn't work means your convergence ic's are shorted or bad

They have a kit for this tv it is available through local parts distributors
If you can't find it locally just Google HITACHI CONVERGENCE KIT

If you are not good with de-soldering and soldering do not attempt this repair. Remember to replace all the resistors in the kit

If you are not sure about doing this repair you should have your local tv guy do it for you

Why does my TV have a red shadow on all the people and words. i've only had it 4 1/2 yrs

It sounds like the red gun is off. Your tv uses three guns(red,green and blue) to make the picture. sometimes one of these guns shifts a little and the colors get messed up and there are shadows because the gun is still trying to make the image, it just doesnt line up. This is a pretty inexpensive problem that can be fixed by most any tv technician for a small fee. If your pretty confident in your electronics know how, google adjusting guns and your tv and that should yield something.

Screen is Extremely Dark!

Good Day, Cary;
Cause: SHORTED ZD-309.

Also, increase Screen controls at front of TV and see what pix brightness does . Hopefully you did check brighteness & contast levels. When adjusting Sreen controls set contrast control at about 90% and brightness at about 50%.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

1 inch lines on top and bottom of screen

Is the picture overall too small by 1 in. on top and bottom? Or is it cut off by the lines?

If it's too small, look for an adjustment labeled Vertical Height. This may only be accessible internally, it's normally a service adjustment, not a user adjustment.

Your problem is a vertical deflection issue, either an adjustment or the vertical circuit requires repair by a technician. In the latter case, electrolytic capacitors are a likely cause.
