Question about Mitsubishi WS-55809 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Mitsubishi WS-55809 I am having problems with color separation which stated happening recently and seems to be getting worse. Sometimes power off an on helps for a few minutes. The 3 colors seem to seperate around words etc especially on the edges. The screen also seems to have a bend to it. When I went into advanced convergence (conv-audio button) the center seems fine but all the 4 corners have a bend and the white line with the 3 colors all separated by like a quarter inch ! I can't seem to adjust this. Up and down separation is bad but left to right seems pretty good ? ? The TV is about 6 years old- is it worth fixing ? Thanks !

Re: Mitsubishi WS-55809

Harker, the convergence circuit has failed, IC`s and possibly a couple of support resistors, that`s a good set, call around to your local shops and get a few estimates, waay better set than the new dlp and lcd sets in my opinion, any questions? e-mail me back, Happy Holidays, BMW Rider

My Mitsubishi ws-55809 works fine although the screen turn pink but the picture is still visible. After a while it goes back to perfect color. Then it repeats this back and forth. Sometimes it will fl

Problem is likely on the small circuit board that plugs onto the bottom of the red picture tube---be careful as dangerous voltages in and around that board---each of the three picture tubes has a small board that plugs on the end of the tube.

Sometimes the convergence IC's failing will cause this. Also, the coolant for the picture tube can leak onto the circuit boards causing damage. Need to have it looked at asap as the coolant problem gets continuously worse.
