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.

There are 3 distinct color lines and the picture looks 3d. The lines are bowed and trying to adjust using the convergence grid doesn't work- the grid is bowed

Mitsubishis are notorious for bad solder connections on the convergence IC's. These are located on the big heat sinks on the main board. It's an easy fix if you know how to solder. Check for any play on the IC's when "wiggled".

The picture is showing a double image and is distored.

The problem you are refering to is more than likely a convergence problem. The convergence circuit in your tv is controlled by an IC (integrated circuit) stk392-110 and it makes the 3 colors (red, blue, green) line up/converge together to create a clear picture. You'll know when this part needs to be replaced because the picture you see is 3d looking and possibly bowed on the top or bottom or on the sides in any or all 3 colors.

Ws55809 tv picture bows at top and bottom. Also has shadows. Is it the bulb and where do I get one.

You have a convergence problem. The 3 picture tubes are fine. The small signal module needs reworked. The board with all the rca jacks.

Mitsubishi Convergence issue

If the screen is out of focus you probably need to adjust the focus on the focus block it is usually located behind the front grill, there are 6 adjustment screws on this block, leave the screen controls along just adjust the red, green, and blue focus screws. When converging a set everything is converged to the green, the blue and red are suppose to come to the green.

My Mitsubishi vs-5061 isn't working properly. The red crosshair wont line up with the white ones going horizontally. The red is bowing. Causing most writting to have a double vision look. HELP!

Hi, this will occur when the convergence unit has failed . you will need to replace the convergence board in this unit in order to restore proper convergence functions. This is just below the optical assembly in the PCB main area next to the signal board and terminal block.

Mitsubishi vs 5071

Usually this problem is caused by bad convergence ic's. These hold the three colors in alignment. They are better to be replaced as a set of two or three chips and must be soldered/desoldered into the circuit board. Most shops charge 200.00-375.00 to do this repair. I hope this helps. Most bow problems are from convergence or pincushion circuits.
