Question about Mitsubishi WS-55809 55" Rear Projection Television

WS-55809 cloudy foggy picture

I get intermittent cloudy and foggy picture, as though the color has been 95% removed. This sometimes happens when I turn it on, goes away after I power on and off several times, sometimes it persists. Other times it works normally for days. After removing the front panel I noticed a hard silicone-like white ooze on each of the guns, not reaching the circuit board, just a hardend white blob coming from the black plastic housing clinging to the side of the tube. Is this the coolant leaking? Could this be the source of my problem? If so, what do I do? Can this be a DIY fix?

    THE material is there to make it clear if anyone has tampered with those assemblies---it is not a Coolant leak (Glycol)

Check the EHT splitter assembly, this feeds the focus grids on the output tubes.
BE CAREFUL as there is more than 25kVolts there!

Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.

For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.


Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:

12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filter cover is open.
34 = Lamp abnormality
36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 = Lamp Temperature High
39 = DMD Temperature High
41 = Short is detected
44 = DVI cable between FMT and Engine disconnected

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.

Mitsubishi ws-55809 distorted picture


Sounds like you are having a convergence error.
What you could do is either replace the TV or have some wires/circuits/boards replaced.
Shop around for prices.
If you're lucky you'll find someone willing to do a free estimate, as replacing anything on these will set you back a few hundred...at least.
Hopefully, in your case, the problem can be solved by tightening a screw or two.
