Question about Mitsubishi TS-50611 50" Rear Projection Television

Screen goes Blank and then flutters rainbow-like lines


I received this 50" for free due to its problem with the screen displaying fine and as the unit warms up, it begins flashing rainbow-like lines and goes blank. Sound works fine. Is there an inexpensive simple fix?

Re: Screen goes Blank and then flutters rainbow-like...

Sounds like to me that the vertical circuit is whacking out....That is not uncommon with this model. Fixing requires resoldering some connections on the deflection yokes. I know that was french for you but bear with me. That repair is very complex. I do it for around $250. That does not include pickup and delivery. We do it in the home for a little less.

BTW, when I say complex let me clarify myseff. The yokes are bolted around the neck of each of the three picture tubes. The solder connections causing the problem are not accessible with out loosening the clamp and rotating them 90 degrees. Then you can get to the solder connections that are bad. Then you put the yoke back where it was. If you don't get it back exactly where it was the picture will have colored ghosts. I can readjust the beam landing of each tube but I know what I'm doing.

Hitachi Ultravision, 1998 model, 50" screen. It turned itself off and will not turn on.

I had the same one. And my color went out and had a rainbow on its left side. I think what I was told its because it was being used for gaming. The tv cannot stand on a blank screen for long. Maybe this will help.

Screen went black with a vertical rainbow line down the middle

Failue of the vertical section, could be the drive, the power to the section or even some discrete componets. Unless you are familiar with electronics , get some help to ceck out on these circuits, could not be major but to get themain culprit will require good probing.

Rainbow line will come across screen and then goes blank. This is an intermittent problem. Normally if I turn it off and back on, it works. Now it does not.

try resoldering the vertical output IC, the IC runs at a hot temperature and this can cause the Pins to have cracked solder.

Rainbow lines in my projection tv

You have convergence problems. The convergence IC's that line up the red, green and blue crt's are bad. They will need to be replaced. Suggest a qualified tech do the work due to the complexity and alignments afterward
