Re: mitsubishi vs50805

That is the classic symptom when your convergence ICs go out. They usually take out the two resistors that drive the ICs as well. This is a easy fix if you can solder. Your ICs are located on a large heat sink on the left side of the chassis they will have an STK392-110 number or similar number. They cost about 10.00 each. Let me know if I can assist you with any other info.

How do I view movies in 3D on the Mitsubishi WD-Y65?

WD-Y65 is NOT a 3D ready TV. You either have to change the TV to see the movie in 3D, or just watch it in 2D in you current TV.

I have the same TV as yours. Current I connect a desktop PC to the TV via DVI port, and I watch Avatar using colorcode 3D(Amber/Blue) with Stereoscopic Player from It might be a way for you to enjoy 3D without change the whole thing, but it's an entire different topic.

Ur tv does nt support 3D. U can still see 3D if connected to PC. With power DVD 11 u can able to watch anaglyph 3D.
Dnt get confused any standard screen (e.g. CRT (big boxes with curved screen)) can view anglyphic 3D content.

This is a convergence problem and not really a DIY Many amateurs try it to save money but end up spending more on it than a professional. There are dozens on here that managed to fix it for a day or two only to have it fail again.

cost of fix about $300.

The picture has a curve at the top and bottom and the colors sometime look 3d

The convergence chips are bad and need to be replaced. Also, possibly resistors and fuses.

I have a Mitsubishi VS60-609. It was given to me, and untill I pluged it in had no idea what to expect? It has a picture and sound, but looks like it is in 3D! I thought it just needed a good convergence,...

Good Day, John in Ohio;
Even though I'm from MI I will try to help you. Your TV uses a convergence IC > STK393-110 HIC > Part number > 267P140020. This model only uses one IC. The cost of IC is $27.20 from MIT but could get at local supplier cheaper.
Good Luck, big IRISH.
