Question about Mitsubishi VS-50607 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Picture suddenly appeared out of focus, with different colors not lined up as they should be. A horizontal line shows up as two parallel ones, one red and one blue. This all happened to the accompaniment of a smell like burning plastic. When we powered down and up again, the smell did not return but the picture stayed bad.

This is a model first sold in 2000---if convergence is skewed and will not align in the customer menu:

It uses two of the STK-392-110 convergence chips--I suspect if you smelled something that when the chips went bad one or more of the protection resistors around them toasted--burned to protect the set from the short.


Both chips and any bad resistors need to be located and replaced--parts cost On Ebay would be less than 30 dollars--I can tell you the best seller there.

If you or someone you know can do the repair you can save the set and a lot of money--Most shops are going to charge at least 300 for this kind of repair.

It should be able to be fixed right in your home--I know as I have repaired hundreds of sets with this problem.

Too much yellow does not adjust with normal drop screen adjustments. can i adjust the light beams.on my philips 50"


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} 1. Turn the green screen control on the Focus Block until retrace lines appear and gradually turn it back
Until the point where you can see the retrace line disappears, just before cutoff.
2. Turn the red screen control on the Focus Block until retrace lines appear and gradually turn it back
Until the point where you can see the retrace line disappears, just before cutoff.
3. Turn the blue screen control on the Focus Block until retrace lines appear and gradually turn it back
until the point where you can see the retrace line disappears, just before cutoff.
4. If the screen still appears too bright after proper G-2 adjustment, you need to adjust the sub-bright adjustment in the service menu
control down until screen cut-off. (Service data Range is usually 21 to 25 in the Service menu, for Sony sets you first go to category "MCP2", & then adjustment item 01( "SBRT")= subright.
For electrical the focus, put on the screen a clear picture of your choice thru an input of the TV set from a DVD, then pause the playback of the DVD Look into each color and rock that color focus control back and forth (turn the control one way then the other way slowing down as the picture goes into the best focus. till the picture looks sharp do each color till they all look in focus. NOTE: it is best to look into each color tube to achieve the best electrical focus. For optical focus please follow the manual lens adjustment in the sets service manual

Projection defect


Good Day;
It sounds like you may need to re-adjust your G-2 controls, located at front, remove front panels. Look for small block with screen /focus controls on item, first turn color down, reset brightness, contrast controls. Adjust until lines are at min. and picture is a good black and white (grays). Good Luck, big IRISH.

57H81Toshiba Blue Line not straight


You have a bad convergence output IC in the blue vertical circuit. On the bottom side of the chassis you will see a " V " printed by the heat sink. You will need to unsolder the heat sink and the 20 pins on the IC to remove it. Replace with STK 392-180 (sanyo) if possible or STK 392-150. Looking from the rear the heat sinks are big aluminum finned rectangles. There are 2 heat sinks one marked H and one Marked V. Even though you have a horizontal line your problem is in the vertical IC. Be sure to use a liberal dose of heat sink compound.

Poor picture quality


You need to consider the following tips herein as follow:

1) Field collapse (horizontal white line on screen)
R710 dry joints. Same as C2146TN & C2546TN problem solved with thanks to Mike G & Barty. Power off/unplug. Get to circuit board underside with aerial socket up-R710 is near top and right of centre-cluster of 4 joints best resoldered
2) Picture is horizontally narrowed and deformed
Capacitor C2913 (390nF, 250V) on the deflector PCB had lost capacity

Please let me know any update
