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 !

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

    Harker, either of those places can fix the set, you don`t need an "authorized dealer" for that repair, be advised that Sears will be a LOT more expensive to do the same job. As to how much it will cost that really depends on where you live, Shop rental rates, and overhead differ dramatically say between a NYC suburb and

    a small town in nearby Connecticut. By calling the shop and saying " I need the convergence IC`s replaced in my tv" they know there dealing with an "informed" consumer and should be able to quote you an estimate, be sure to have your model number ready when you call, good luck, 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.

I have a Mitsubishi WS-55807 and the colors started to separate - you can reset it by turning if off and on again and it goes away but in time returns, starts getting blury then the colors split up - just...


In your On Screen Display menu (OSD), you should have a place that says "convergence". As a sub heading to this it will say "Auto-Convergence". This is where you want to be! Hit OK under AUTO, and watch the magic happen! If your set happens NOT to have AUTO, you'll have to do it manually. You're going to make the lines all match up doing one color at a time until all three colors are done! It's not hard at all. It may take a little patience at first, but just think of all the money your saving by not having a TV tech come out to your house and you'll be fine!
