Check the cabel TV or antenna conection first. And check the tv with a DVD player or VCR too if work thats a problem.

Some TV forget the settings after a power lost, so try to set the stations again.

Blueish hue throughout picture, like a blue ghost a couple of inches to the right of objects on the screen

Your TV's Convergence may be out of line. To adjust this do the following.

1) Press the Menu button on your TV/Remote
2) Scroll through and select the "Advanced Features" Menu.
3) Select Blue Convergence
4) Use the V keys on your remote till the cross hairs are all lined up in the middle of the screen and the center one is white.
4a) You can use the "Video" button to switch between the red & blue cross hairs.

MITSUBISHI WS55809 Blue Screen

I'm not clear on this. When does it show a blue screen? When you have it in HDTV mode? A Blue Screen means it's not getting a signal (or the signal is very weak, resulting in more static than picture). If it is a blue screen for HDTV, how are you sure the HDTV receiver is working? If you can answer those questions for me, I should be able to track down the problem. I'm not sure which direction to go yet.

I have a mitsubishi WS-55809. i just came home from vacation and turned on my tv and nothing. the power comes on and nothing comes up on the screen. i tried to scroll through the inputs to make sure it...

Sometimes the convergence IC's failing will cause this. Also, the coolant for the picture tube can leak onto the circuit boards causing damage. Need to have it looked at asap as the coolant problem gets continuously worse.

Mitsu. 1080 Problem -- Green squiggly lines

if no one answered then hear my thoughts.  odds are it is 2 ic's
I say that because that has been the problem with mine,
except it was the red.  it happened in 2000 when I bought the tv
and just now.  its going to cost me about 400.00 to have someone fix it.  I'm getting it fixed because it's been good to me. I watch dvd's vhs's and laser disks and feel it has plenty of life in it.

good luck
