Mitsubishi rear projection WS-55511 green double images?

Hi I have a Mitsubishi WS-55111 and the problem I am having is that the picture on the set went to a green color and shows a double image. It happend one night out of the blue and for about 5 minutes went back to normal and then back to the green, blurry, double image. I got an estimate and the repairman told me 350 and it would take about an hour or so...anybody have experience with this and could maybe explain how I could do it myself? Thanks a lot

The WS-55511 uses a single STK-393-110 chip for convergence--when it fails convergence may shift and come and go...the 350 quote is typical for most shops for this type of repair.

Considering you can buy the Chip on Ebay for about 12 dollars plus shipping if you can do it yourself you can save a lot of money and the set.

I think I am the only one on this site that offers START TO FINISH, STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS REPAIR IN THIS SET.

They tell you everything you will need and how to do the repair yourself. If you are handy and able to solder you can do it---I know as over 12 people I have given the instructions to in the last two months have reported success to me...

He is right, the repair for a tech takes about 1 hour in the home--I know as I have done hundreds of them here where I live.

If you have questions or think you can do the repair let me know and I will post the instructions here or via you email---I cannot give my email out here--against the rules here.

If this information has helped you, rate this solution as I do this here for FREE.

The picture is showing a double image and is distored.


The problem you are refering to is more than likely a convergence problem. The convergence circuit in your tv is controlled by an IC (integrated circuit) stk392-110 and it makes the 3 colors (red, blue, green) line up/converge together to create a clear picture. You'll know when this part needs to be replaced because the picture you see is 3d looking and possibly bowed on the top or bottom or on the sides in any or all 3 colors.

Yellow, blue and green ghosting of picture. Convergence mode will not allow realignment of the red and blue lines


Hi,it sounds like a light engine problem.Lcd Technology uses 3 chips blue,green and red that create the image ,when they start to fail color discoloration will occur.If it's an Dlp pay attention to sounds of buzzing,whirling and high pitch sounds because it could be your colro wheel.

Double image on picture model # ws55511


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai2_bing.gif,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture
