Picture has shadows and distorts but when i tap the side of the tv it jumps back and is fine. Seems like a loose connection.

it could be a wire plug not seated properly on the DCU. I would inspect the wire connections to insure they are al seated properly

Screen blinks and then goes out. tap on side and causes flickers

sure sounds like loose solder joints, look for them in the deflection circuit, just find the hard plastic encapsulated body with the thick red wire sticking out of it thats where usually the loose solder joints develop.

ck for dry solder joints if you take rear cover off and just lightly tap on convergence ic heat sink if the tv jumps then you have to remove the board and resolder the joints. also if you have a magnifying glass ck all solder joints on board when it is out

Picture Jumps/flashes for first 5 minutes

There is a module called a hyper board that is vertically mounted near the jack panel. Inside the module are 10mf/25v capacitors they are grtting weak. The module is fully shielded and pluggs into a socket. the module has 4 tabs (2 on each end) that must be unsoldered before it can be unplugged. This repair should be done by a qualified technician. The caps are surface mounts and very small. Unless you have excellent soldering skills and a rock steady hand DO NOT ATTEMPT to repair this problem on your own.

Picture flickers when T.V. is tapped on or struck.

sounds very much like a loose connection, i.e. a wire or solder joint, you could have a look around make sure everything is plugged in right, as for the solder joints id advise getting it proffessionally looked at as these rear projection tvs can be a lot of hassle if you slighty knock any of the 3 tubes,

Mitsubishi VS-45607 Picture flickers and dims

It could be a bad solder connection that opens up as the set warms up. It could also be caused by a couple of bad capacitors, C2p05 (100uf/16v) Located By Ic2p01 and check C2c52 (10uf/50v) Located near Q2c51. A technican will be able to fix it for about what you paid for it I suppose.
