Question about Mitsubishi WS-65809 65" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

My Mitsubishi ws-65809 will not power on and gives error code 22

I was having the dreaded issue with the faulty STK IC chips that needed to be resoldered or replaced when today my TV my tv just just turned off and will not give me a display. It will power on then right back down with no picture and when holding the menu and the input buttons for 6ish seconds I get the flash code 22.

What does this mean?? have the ICs been toasted or has then problem gotten even worse and I need to replace more parts.

    I ordered Legit Sanyo replacement ICs for about $50 shipped. Today I replaced the ICs and reapplied fresh thermal paste. I checked all the solder joints with a multimeter and they were perfect. After reassembling everything back into my tv it is still giving me the error code 22 for the short :( Now that I have $50 invested in a fix I really want to finish the job. What else could of failed in there? I saw a post about replacing a "pico" that fails when they IC does... But I am unsure of where I should be looking for the next failed component or what a pico is.

    That picture shows the location of what I assume to be two fuses. I test the first one with my meter and it was blow, but the 2nd one closer to the front screen of the TV was fine. Could there be anything else out there that needs to be checked?

Your symptom sounds like at least one damaged convergence IC.

On Mitsubishi's you can sometimes rework the solder connections on each of these IC’s, although, if the convergence does not fix itself from time to time, you most likely do not have a bad solder connection. You will have a faulty IC. Since you now have an error code of 22 (which indicates a short on one of the power supply lines) I recommend replacing them both at the same time because the chips legs can fall off due to the heat of the IC. If you have a good low wattage soldering iron ~ 45W (available at radio shack) you can perform the repair yourself, and this will most likely take care of the entire issue.


I like to remove the board that the IC’s are on so that I can unsolder the connections and clean then up using solder wick (this is also available from radio shack). Removing the board is not a real issue as the connectors are all labeled with an alpha number, so that you can connect them back real easy. There are three in the middle towards the front that I like to mark with a sharpie as they are the red green and blue convergence coil connections (they are all the same size in a row). Just mark them with slashes, like I, II, III, or something like that. If you mix them up it is not a big issue, you can test swapping them around until the picture lines up.

Please be sure to remove the entire white heat sink compound on the heat sink and apply an even coating over the back of the new IC’s. You should also bolt them down before you solder them in so that you have them at the correct height.

There are two very large IC’s that control the convergence in a big screen set. They are secured to a very large aluminum heat sink. I think that the IC numbers will be IC8001, 80002.


The IC’s are large and black, you cannot miss them. They will usually have an STKXXX-XXX number on them.

This repair from a good technician will normally run from $250.00 - $300.00, and sometimes more depending on your area.

There are several schools of thought on the replacement of parts and I firmly believe that you get what you pay for, so don’t buy the cheapest IC’s that you can find. One company I worked for tried this and it only caused more work for the technicians, as we had to replace them with the more expensive ones in the end. I would think that you should be able to find these for around $60.00 each. If you can find the exact Hitachi part, or Sanyo, even though the numbers on the front are the same, and they look exactly like the $10.00 ones, they are better and more reliable.

I usually order my parts from Andrews Electronics in
California, they will have the OEM components that you will need.
Their site is http://www.andrewselectronics.com/welcome.aspx
And their phone number is a 24-Hour Order Desk: (800) 274-4666
I recommend the phone order so you can talk to the person about the different types of IC’s that are available.

You can also try http://www.tvrepairkits.com/ , I have not tried them yet, but they do carry OEM or better parts.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

I have a mitsubishi ws-65809. I relpaced the STK392-570 ICs and turned on the tv and it powered on for 2 secs and went off. I ran the test and got a 2 and 2 blink. Then ran test and got a 1 and 2 blin


If you unplugged the set you will get the 1,2 no error found, the 2,2 is short protection, I hope you had that before the chips were replaced, it is one or both of the pico fuses bad that protect those chips.

see photo of board, locations are 9FAo4 and o5 on the middle board where the chips are but further back.

Attn sd tech i have a code 2 2 how do i repair?


It means one of the two pico fuses for CONVERGENCE is blown.

I will attach photo of the fuses; they and the two convergence chips this set uses are on the middle circuit board--also a photo of a typical IC.

Parts cost on EBAY will be under 20 dollars.

Instructions tell you everything you will need and exactly how to do the repair.

Give me a email and I will send them free.

Mitsubishi ws-65809 powers on for 2 seconds. After holding menu & input I get a 1 blink, 2 blink error code. Anyone know what this error code is and how to fix. Thanks


2,2 error code is short protection---98% of the time it means one of the two soldered in pico fuses this set uses is blown----there are several---but your problem means if it is ws-65809 one of the two stk-392-570 convergence chips has failed.

I will attach a photo---they are on the middle circuit board and the two to the right are for convergence--both are green and 5 amp--with the set unplugged check both of them like any fuse--no reading means bad.

If you find this--I HAVE START TO FINISH, STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS REPAIR IN THIS SET--SHOPS WILL GET 300 or more but you if you can do it yourself buy everything you need for under 40 dollars--I can tell you the best place to get the chips, fuses, etc.

If you want the instructions let me know and I will post them here for you---they are based on my own actual experience doing this repair in this kind of set hundreds of times.

Image problem with WS-65809 65" Mitsubishi Projection TV


WS-65809?, if convergence is skewed and comes and goes, uses two of the STK-392-570 CONVERGENCE IC chips.

I have seen a lot of the Mitsubishi sets that use these two chips where the convergence jumps in and out. You need to replace both chips and adjust the set.

You can buy a pair of the chips on EBAY for less than 13 dollars plus shipping.

I HAVE START TO FINISH, STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS REPAIR IN THE SETS THAT USE THESE TWO CHIPS.

If you or someone you know can do the repair you can save the set and a lot of money--most shops are going to get at least 300 for this kind of repair--I know as I have done hundreds of them here.

The instructions tell you everything you will need and how to do the repair. I have helped many people here do this based on my instructions.

If you want the instructions let me know and I will either post them here or send them to you.

Mits ws-65809 Won't turn on Blinking 2 2


2-2 is a error code that means short protection.

Usually in this set it means one of the fuses that protects the convergence circuit is shorted because of a bad convergence Ic.

I HAVE PHOTOS OF THE FUSES-- and THE PROTECTION RESISTORS- and I also have step by step from start to finish instructions for this repair in this set.


If you want the instructions and photos give me a vote here and I will be happy to email them to you and answer any questions you have. I have done hundreds of Mitsubishi sets with this problem---I just got home from doing one a few miles away from where I live.

Mitsubishi 1080 hd ws-65809 wont power up


This issue is almost always caused by a faulty Convergence IC inside your TV. These chips heat up and can become damaged over time. The most common cause I have seen for the picture distortion is the heat of the Convergence IC weakening the solder connection to the TV circuit board. If you look on various messages board you will see people rigging wooden dowels and other items to apply pressure to the chips in order to correct their picture issue. This works because when the solder joint is weakened the chip becomes loose and vibrations or pressure will cause it to work or not work correctly. Aside from all that information the correct fix is to have the IC chips replaces on your TV.

The solutions for this issue are as follows:

1. located a tv repair shop that will replace the parts for you. I had the same issue with my 65" Tv and the quote was $350 for the labor and parts.


2. You can ordered the IC replacements yourself online by going to google and looking up a reseller of the STK392-110 Convergence IC that is inside your model TV. You will need 2 of them and they cost around $6 each. If you have the soldering skills to remove the old chips and install the new ones this is by far the most cost effective route. It is a fairly simple process and guides can be found online.

WS-65809 ERROR CODE 22


look on the center circuit board and you will see two green Pico fuses they look like resistors but they dont have any bands on them . They will have F9A04 and F9A05 on the board next to them. Check with a ohms meter if those fuses are open you will ned new convergence ICs. Thats the first thing to check are those two pico fuses when you get a 22 error on your model.
