Question about Mitsubishi VS-5059 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

I have a mitsubishi vs 5059, when i open the TV I get a black square covering most of the tv but i can hear the sound and also see the picture outside of the black square. I don't know if there is an error with the pip feature or what. I do not have a remote for that TV so I have a universal remote but have not been able to get rid of that black square in the middle. When I increase the volume or change channel or press info the square disappears for a while (allowing me to see the whole picture) but it comes back again. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

You can likely buy a replacement remote here:
Remotes.com
'Universal' remotes exist only in your dreams; there is no such thing since the manufacturers cannot agree on a basic code set that would work with any set. None of them can control every function of every brand and model made.

I have a vs-60609 60"


Sounds like a Picture in Picture screen popping up, but if you do not have a signal from another tuner, it will be blank.

Try hitting the PIP button on your remote to see if it turns it off and on.
Plus go into the tv menu and find the PIP settings.

Mitsubishi VS-55609 distorted Picture Flickers


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs. To get fixed either call in a local TV repair company or goto sites such as Tv Repair Kits to get a repair kit with instructions. Here is there link.

They have put together complete kits for most models that include the parts, step by step photo instructions, repair assistance, etc.

This is a convergence problem and not really a DIY Many amateurs try it to save money but end up spending more on it than a professional. There are dozens on here that managed to fix it for a day or two only to have it fail again.

cost of fix about $300.

Projection TV, Sound but no Picture


If this Tv is a model year 1996 or 1998, It is quite possible your vertical IC needs resoldered. It is located on the small signal board. This board [quite large anyway] is the board on the left. I don't know the location off hand. The IC has seven pins and located on a heatsink, It is a TDA series. Resolder any and all grounds you see. May as well get the Large Signal board [On the right] resoldered. The other problem would be the P I P board, a small board standing up, that can be removed and replaced. But try the earlier first. This is tedious, but will produce results.

I get sound but the sreen is black


Try a "hard restart" , which simply means unplugging the power cord of the TV, then replugging it after 4 hours have passed. This technique helps to reprogram the electronics of the TV.
Hope this suggestion works for you.

Dark Picture to no picture


Probably has some bad solder connections in the deflection/ power supply area, if you dont know about electronics, might call a repairman and put a few hundred $ into it or junk it, also it is not HD, just FYI

Trouble!!


Most of the time when theres no picture on a mitsubishi projection set, theres no verticle sweep. Most likly cause is the verticle output IC or the b+ feeding the IC or Both. This is not a consermer replaceable parts. It could also be the PIP module if the set has one . Remember these sets have alot of hi-voltage even when the sets unplugged. Good Luck

If still under warranty or if you have no electronic repair experience you should take the set back to the shop or to a repair person. Some of the solutions described below can be dangerous, TV's are very hazardous to service. Even when plugged out, TV's can store very high voltages. This should not be an expensive job at most repair shops. Could be something as simple as cracked, cold, defective solder joints around and near the vertical output chip, could be a faulty chip and other components in and around the vertical deflection circuitry, or a faulty vertical drive signal from the jungle circuits, or worst case a faulty deflection yoke. Take your television to a shop right away for a proper and safe repair. Do not keep the television looking at the red horizontal line.... you can easily damage or burn the CRT phosphors. Good luck
