White horizontal line (no vertical deflection)
Check / replace R548, R549
Sound but no picture except for a couple of horizontal colour lines
Replaced the frame chip TDA8356, set now ok
Severe vertical jitter on picture, horizontal sides of picture ragged
Replacing the TDA4950 cured the fault
White line down centre of screen (top to bottom}
Replace C805

I have a mit WS65411 shutdown error code 21

thats the error code for Xray protection which is usually indicating an issue with one of the CRTs and the safety shutdown kicks in and the 21 error will be stored.

I get horizontal lines on the screen that last from a few seconds to 15 minutes. Lots of little lines that take over the screen, you can't even use the menu. Best Buy says that there is no problem but I...

These intermitant lines are caused by a failing capacitor in the horizontal output circuit. I've seen this 100 times. The easiest and cheapest solution is to change out all the larger caps in your horizontal out put circuit. They are cheap and you will know you snagged the right on if you cange them all out. Watch the polarity though as this is important. They are clearly marked +/- so this should be no problem unless you are blind. Bad joke. You should be able to get them all for under twenty bucks, add a little elbow grease and your lines will be gone. The main reason you change them all is because it is hard to isolate the culprit when the problem is intermittant. And the second reason, you know they are all fresh. The capacitors job in the circuit is to filter out ripples in current. Eipples in current cause ripples in screen. Some sets employ a horizontal output IC, in this start by changing out the caps surrounding it. If you still have ripples swap out the IC.

Hope this points you in the right direction.

Mit. WS-65315

A 21 code in mitsubishi is indicating that the set is shutting down for Xray protection. Which means voltages are rising and triggering a shutdown for safety reasons. You will need to trouble shoot the Xray circuit to locate the problem.

Horizontal lines on TV are bouncing across screen and will disappear after TV warms up (sometimes). Please help!

It's caps most likely and one of the more common that fail is C2p08 100mfd/16v in the 5v line. But there are undoubtedly others and you'll probably need to shop it to get them all...
A tech will use an ESR meter to test the caps, testing for their equivilent series resistance. Too high or open caps need to be replaced.
Caps are not that expensive so the parts cost will be minimal. But it is labor intensive to go through each circuit and find the failed ones...
Mits are some great Tv's though and worth the repair.

Picture has horizontal lines that move to middle of screen........

Just got this fixed. The problem is the 21 (yes, 21) main capacitors. It'll only get worse if they aren't replaced. The whole screen'll start jumping, multi-hour "warm up" times until you get a clear picture, maybe not even then... it isn't pretty. Just nip it in the bud now, and more power to you if you tackle it yourself. A good repair shop ought to be able to do this for under $400 if you can't.

Horizontal lines when I turn on tv.PT-53X42 HDTV

Get the professional, although this won't be an expensive fix... You likely have one or more caps in the vertical circuit that are going bad... A cap acts like a battery in a circuit taking on voltage and releasing it at an even rate. When they go bad their ESR (equivilent series resistance) rises and the cap takes longer to reach it's op temp and work properly...
A tech with an ESR meter will easily find and repair this one... But you'll need to take it in to save the pickup/delivery charges.
Good Luck!
