Question about Mitsubishi WS-55809 55" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

My Mitsubishi 55' HD 1080 series MODEL WS-55809 made in November 2001. It has a bent picture in the middle of the top and bottom about 2inches away from the border.They are stretching towards the center of the tv. the red green and blue crosses over each other. Sometimes it will go away. But, about 6 months ago.. they would not go away. I put it away in the garage. I was just going to dispose of it. But, the other day I was on fixya about a computer problem. And it occurred to me. Is this a converging problem. Can I fix it with the remote somehow? Or do I need to buy the 2 chips and put them in. I seen a post about this in a few of the questions, So, I thought I would just ask. I appreciate any help. It is a great TV.. I'd love to fix it.. thank you : ) -Blake

You need to replace the two STK-392-570 convergence chips this set uses along with any of the 3.9 ohm protect resistors in front of them that are bad.

The best way to do this is to get the middle board with the chips out of the set---

I have START TO FINISH, STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS REPAIR ON THIS MODEL--they tell you everything you will need and how to do it yourself.

You can buy a pair of the Chips on Ebay for about 12 dollars plus shipping (I can tell you the seller there to look for--I buy the chips I use there).

If you have the original remote after you replace the chips etc--you adjust the convergence with it.

These are very good sets and were not cheap when new.

If you want the instructions let me know--I cannot post My email here, but you..........

Mitsubishi big screen HD 1080 series model WS-55809. it switched off one day. and when i turn it back on it switches right back off. red light in front. what part do i need to fix it/


That model does not have a red light---Green.

If set powers up for a few seconds (green power light) and goes out do the self check the model indicated has:

On front of set (not with remote) press and hold both the input and menu buttons for at least 5 seconds and release both.

Green power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks a pause and repeat it several times.

Let me know what error code you find (if you have unplugged the set that will clear all errors and you have to plug it in and try to turn set on again---when it fails do the self check)

I have a Mitsubishi HD 1080 55


Your unit has some sort of Thermal problem either with the PSU fault, or a thermal problem elsewhere that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur. T

You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done.

most likely the convergence Ics have failed. Check F9a04 and F9A05 pico fuses if they are blown you will need to replace them and the convergence Ics.They are located on the center board they are green and look like resistors without the color band. see the photoa193b32.jpg82b89b8.jpg
