You need new convergence ICs . They cost about 10.00 each you will need two. They are located on a large aluminum heat sink with an STK number stamped on them. They will have to be soldered in. If you can solder you will be able to do this repair yourself. Let me know if you need ay additional Info.

Severe Ghost.


Mitsubishi has been known for having bad solder connections on their Convergence ICs from the factory. If you are tech savy, and don't mind doing some soldering, follow these instructions:

Unplug set, remove the back cover, find the convergence board (should be labeled, if not it is the long narrow board usually on top or side), find the convergence ICs on the heatsinks and resolder all the pins and ground. This should fix your problem.

GOOD DAY ND GOOD LUCK;

TRY THIS, IT WILL CORRECT CONCERN:

50V500 ONLY
GHOST: May be described as "Out of Convergence" but ghost is still attached to main image.
CONDITION:
A "ghost image" appearing to the left or right of images in the picture. Can be varying shades of a primary color (red, green, or blue) as well as gray. Can easily be seen in the 4 x 3 mode, at the edges of the picture.
CORRECTION:

To correct the problem, please do as follows:
  1. Access I2C Menu. (See page 57 of the Service Manual).
  1. To enter the I2C Service Menu, with power off, (on the front control panel) press and hold the INPUT button. Then press the POWER button for two seconds. The following Service Menu will appear.
03b_ghost_image01.gif Figure 1
  1. BEFORE CONTINUING: CONFIRM THAT THE R, G and B DRIVE ARE SET AT 40.
  • Be sure to press SELECT after each change to SAVE the new Data.


  1. Using the Remote Control joy stick, scroll down to next page (see Figure 2) until LCD ADJUST is highlighted.
03b_ghost_image02.gif Figure 2
  1. Move the joy stick to the right to cursor right once. The next page will appear with the word GHOST highlighted.
  2. Cursor right again, and a white screen will appear with a BLACK SQUARE in the center, as in Figure 3. You will see LCD ADJUST, followed by “SHP” and a number (value).
03b_ghost_image03.gif
Figure 3

  1. If the unit is out of adjustment, you will see a gray ghost on either side of the black square. Move the joystick to the right or to the left until the ghost disappears. The number values will change up or down.
    • If the ghost adjustment is off with a lower value, there will be a ghost to the left of the square.
    • If the ghost adjustment is off with a higher value, there will be a ghost to the right of the square.
  2. Once you get the square to look good without ghosts, press "SELECT" to save any data values that have been changed.
  3. Press the "EXIT" button three times to return to normal picture.
  4. Adjustment is completed
  5. I HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL, big IRISH.

Color is off


Center the controls as best you can, disregarding the pix for the moment. Then, do a mechanical setup, getting the alignment as close as you can. Now, perform the electrical setup and see what you get. If you can't get it any closer, you'll have to address the convergence probem that we suspected you have...accordianman
