Question about Mitsubishi VS-50703 50" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Mitsubishi VS-50703 Hi, Out Mitsubishi VS 50703 TV is not quite ten years old. We had to repalce with new ones, the red, green, and blue bulbs and one circuit board below the bulbs because the fluid was leaking out of two of the bulbs. Hence the tv was not working. However, after spending $400, the picture quality is poorer, not as sharp and is "grainy". Can the picture quality be improved or is this expected with these tv's (as I've been told)? Can this be fixed or is it time for a new TV? Thanks Peter (

Re: Mitsubishi VS-50703

10 years..... i would say new TV... im suprised you even found parts for that. iv looked around ebay and google and have only found a service manual. I would say you could of spent a couple hundred more on a nice 37" LCD or another $400 and got a 42". I think if you get 10 years out of an electronic component then that was a good investment.. If you are still wanting to tinker with setting or something i could point you twords a service manual.

Sound and PIP OK, but no image, screen is blue or gray

Ironically your PIP module is most likely the culprit as they were very common to cause issues on those years of Mitsubishi TV's. The problem is they are NLA and hard to get

Mitsubishi tv model wd-62531 less than 2 years old

It sounds to me like your bulb has burned out. Look behind your TV for where the bulb housing is and pull the bulb out to check if it's burned out or not. You'll know when you look at it if it's toast.

Green "halo" around the bright white images

I have a Samsung HCM5535W rear projection TV that had pretty much the exact same problem-- a green halo around bright white images. I researched it on the net, and determined the most likely problem was with the convergence STK-ICs, or the convergence board. I bought a replacement board with the STK ICs and installed it, but no luck, the problem persisted. I decided to mess with the manual focus adjustment on the green crt (i was seeing a green halo), and that fixed it. As it turns out, no replacement parts were necessary to fix the problem in the first place. Hope this helps somebody out there.
