Mitsubishi Rear Projection TV Model WS-55311

Rear projection TVs are dinosaurs. Sell it if you can get anybody to buy it and get an HDtv they're pretty cheap now not to mention thinner, lighter and better for your eyes. Imagine the space you'll save if you mount it on the wall and the cost of electricity. Not trying to be a jerk but it's time to move into the 21st century. The picture is waaaaay better.

Samsung 2006 56" HLR5688W DLP TV Right half of screen turns black. Left side normal picture. Corrects itself when set is turned off and back on. Randomly occurs - sometime picture is ok for half a day...

Possibly a bad light tunnel assembly if the part is only a shadow effect. If not then probably a bad DMD board. The DMD board is part of the light engine but needs to be replaced by a technician.

I have a Hitachi Model # 53SBX59B. After the TV is on for a half hour to an hour, the picture starts turning red and then it goes black with no picture. I was told there are three tubes in it and one...

Does it go to a bright red screen with arched lines going through it and then go black? or does it fade to black? You could have a problem with the red tube but this is no small feat to change. you would need to know the service codes for the convergence menu to align the new tube after changing it. Let me know what its doing and ill be able to help further.

My TV pictures turns black afetr a few hours but I still can hear sound perfectly!!!

It sounds like your rptv lamp is going out. If this is an older DLP this is most likely the cause. You can get a replacement at part number BP96-00224J for $151. If the tv is still under warranty, I would have them do it, otherwise replace it yourself. If so here is a link to give you step by step instruction. Please give me a good rating. ;-)
