Mitsubishi WD57 57" HDTV

I recently purchased the above product from Circuit City .
The screen delveloped an opaque artifact in the center of the screen extending from the bottom up 8-10" and about 18"-24" wide sort of a semi circular shape in the center of the distortion.
We had the lamp replaced after about 2 months of use and had the service tech look at it , he said that we must have gotten the screen wet.We purchased the Extended service plan and I think it is just an excuse to not honor the repair, we use the tv in the house no where near anything that could have gotten it wet and I personally cleaned the screen per the manufacturer's recomendation,.
Have any of you seen this kind of issue with 57" Mitsubishi screens before ?

Its a mitsubishi ws-55413 projection tv. the tv stopped receiving the remote funtions.

Have the remote tested alone--all shops can do this and if it tests good suspect the remote receiver in the set (usually is dead center behind the screen in the middle above the lens.

Picture Bowed towards the center

It is a convergence problem, probably one of the convergence ICs has blown and must be replaced. Call the number in the last pages of your user manual to get repair service in your area.

Mitsubishi tv model wt 46809

Good Day, sam;
Sam it depends on "smudge".
If it's an oily type; then a mild soap, like dawn, on damp, warm soft cotton type cloth may remove it.
There are products found in most large best buy, circuit stores that sell a screen cleaner. It's sold in a small spay bottle, about 2-3 ounces. Always spray onto cloth NOT screen. Always wipe/clean with up & down strokes, NOT side to side or at an angle.
If the screen is smudged after attempts of trying to 'cleanning' a scratch, then only replacing the screen will fixya problem, cost will be in the range of $100.00-$250.00.
Good Luck, hope this was helpful, big IRISH.

Big screen showing double and red ghost color

Go into your service menu and try to adjust the convergence, if it does not adjust, the IC's ( chips) are bad in that circuit. Call a local factory authorized dealer to service your tv. The cost should run around $450.00. Good luck.

Dark screen at top of TV picture

If this is a projection set then a center channel speaker sitting on top would have no effect.
