Question about Mitsubishi WS-55809 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

I have taken the back off of this, cleaned everything and cant find out what is wrong. My TV is having a "bow tie" affect and the colors are off on the outsides of the screen but the middle is a perfect picture. The left side seems to be the worst though. I looked at the convergence components from above and everything looks soldered. Maybe i need to take the board out and look at the soldering from underneath maybe. ..... Now, i took the memory board off and checked the convergence chips at a closer look and to look at the underneath for soldering. Everything looke soldered. I put it all back together and now the tv wont turn on. The green light comes on for only a second and shuts off and the tv never turns on. Can anyone help me with this problem?

Hi, I'm Peter, Do you have power to the fuse? Use a test light or meter. It is possible he may have cut the wire into when ever he remove the alarm. If you have power to the fuse and the fuse is good you need to look for a ground wire that he may have taken loose when he removed the alarm system and didn't bother to hook the ground back. Check also for a relay that may affect these. On my cay there is an illumination fuse that affects all of those and it also is tied into the headlights but you would not know it without removing the entire fuse box and running continuity checks on everything. You may be surprised at how many different things are tied together . Hope this gives you a starting point.

I have a Mitsubishi WS55809 that I purchased in 2002, and my kids have been using it for gaming. As they are playing, the screen convergence will change constantly from a normal image, to a "bow...


Unless you've moved the unit lately, or the kids have treated it roughly, it's probably not the mirror, which is fixed in place with screws on this model.
You can also take a look at this website here, which describes some solutions to bowing problems, specifically replacing the convergence ICs. However, this is expensive, provided you can still find parts, and probably isn't your problem, anyway.
Since whacking the unit fixes and un-fixes the problem, it's more than likely a connector that's loose. If you know your way around the inside of a TV, you can unplug, clean, and re-plug the various boards and connectors, especially the convergence and deflector boards. That will likely solve your problem
CAUTION: If you don't know your way around the inside of a TV, DON'T OPEN IT! Even after unplugging the TV, some of the wires inside will have enough voltage to cause serious injury. Better to be safe than sorry.

Bowed picture on Philips 55pp9352 after replacing IC's


You must have mishandled the ICs they are static sensitive, and unless you used Sanyo ICs then you will have problems. The convergence is obviously not working so the TV will need the digital convergence board repaired or replaced, also the PIP board is suspect I have seen plenty of these tvs and believe me I earned the $ 350 we charged. These sets are very difficult to work on even for a trained tech. the best thing to do is to have a repair shop do it and you will have the assurance that its done correctly, and the work is guaranteed, That makes sense. ( I will not be able to respond to any further inquires)

Mitsubishi ws-55809 distorted picture


Sounds like you are having a convergence error.
What you could do is either replace the TV or have some wires/circuits/boards replaced.
Shop around for prices.
If you're lucky you'll find someone willing to do a free estimate, as replacing anything on these will set you back a few hundred...at least.
Hopefully, in your case, the problem can be solved by tightening a screw or two.
