Question about Mitsubishi WT-42313 42" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Blue is distorted

I have a Mitsubishi Wt-42A 1080 HDTV. The problem is that the blue color is distorted, the blue color is separated from the rest of the picture. If I change the input on the TV so I only get a blue screen, on the left of the screen there is a vertical blank bar, as if some of the blue screen is distorted or missing. Other than that the picture is fine. I cannot find the manual for this TV set and I do not know if this model is a CRT, LCD etc. I'm thinking it might be a problem I might be able to fix , like changing a lamp or something else.

    I am having a similar issue. I turned the TV on this morning and the blue was also distorted. When I changed the input and the screen is all blue then there is a black wave across the top of the TV. When I am watching TV the blue color is not lined up with the picture causing double picture.

Find and examine the conv ICs, on their big heatsink. They may be unsoldered down at their legs, or need replacement.

No color on mitsubishi 1080

1080 is a High Definition setting. If your Television is HD capabilities you need to make sure that the programming that you are viewing is being broadcasted in 1080. If it is not then you will see a difference in picture quality and sound. If no color at all and program being watch is HD programming check your connections on back of Television. depending on what kind of input the Television is receiving you might need to try new cables or a new input. Good luck

Big screen showing double and red ghost color

Go into your service menu and try to adjust the convergence, if it does not adjust, the IC's ( chips) are bad in that circuit. Call a local factory authorized dealer to service your tv. The cost should run around $450.00. Good luck.
