Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Mitsubishi WS-55807 We just acquired this TV and got it to work -- sorta.. But the pit'cher sucks big time -- is in Black and White for the most part.. Last night, the first time we tried to hook it up and all, we got it this far.. Today we went to Best Buys and the guy there said it was definitely the single cable 'In' to the Dish box.. He said I needed these triple wires -- Red, Blue and Green and all would look good.. Well, I hooked these babies up but I'm not sure about Where I hooked them up or anything but it did nothing.. I hooked up another triple wire set I had previously for VCR hookup and mabye that did something right as we now have the sucky picture just like last night.. HELP!!!!! Please!!

    Thank You so much for your quick response!!

    No, I haven't bothered with the color yet.. I'm still trying to figure out the cable and/or setting problems.. The picture has black lines thru everything.. In other words, the 30+ ? lines of resolution have black lines between the 'normal' ones.. If, for instance, there were a white billboard on tv, you'd readily see the black lines going down the screen fast too.. Make sense??

    Thanx again, Rich

    Easy now!! Your talking to a guy that doesn't know NTSC from PAL..

    I'm in N. Nevada, USofA. TV was broken and given to me this week. $325.00 fixed it.. No, Dish box is not HD..

    that almost sounds like a compatability issue (NTSC to PAL). where are you located (USA or other)? where did you purchase it from? is the Dish box an HD box?

  • Robert Johnson May 11, 2010

    have you adjusted the color in the video settings? use the remote press the video button until you reach color settings adjust with the curser buttons on the remote.

Ok, I had to ask, this sight is world wide and the formates of different countries are not compatible for instance the US uses NTSC and will soon change to ATSC while europe uses PAL formate. I could get into it further but we need not since your here in the US. the problem with the set is hard to determine this is not a simple hook up problem. it you receive this problem thru the cable input from the channel 3 of the tv we must issolate if the problem is from the dish box or the tv. 1st hook up a DVD player using the yellow, red, white cables to any input. does the picture improve? if so the dish box is at fault. if not the set has an internal problem.2nd from a blank input press menu is the colors of the menu ok? if it is then problem lies between the input section of the set and the Y/C jungle IC inside never the less you will need further repairs to the unit. send me a picture of the problem (send one with a blank input and one with a signal) I will try to assist you further.

I have a Mitsubishi WS-55807 and the colors started to separate - you can reset it by turning if off and on again and it goes away but in time returns, starts getting blury then the colors split up - just...

your convergence circuit has started giving trouble .... normal thing after a few years running for projection televisions ...... could be that the convergence IC's are getting too hot (two big IC's on a heast sink bearing an STK number on it) or that you have some loose soldering that needs to be resoldered on them.... worth the check

High Definition--WS-55807

IF the MITS has 3 component inputs blue red yellow RCA jacks on the back then yes at 480 or 720p, you'll need to attach 2 audio cables for sound. If it has a HDMI input then absolutely.

Corroded Board

The best place for board repair or replace is PTS 1-800-844-7871 Yes you would need to fill the CRT's fluid level back up. The liquid is Glycnol(Liquid anti-freeze) Poisonious yes is swallowed! So take precautions. You can get if from places like MCM electronics, Tritronics,, etc. It's called CRT coolant fluid. Yes and you would need to fix leak, probably a gasket or seal. Hope this helps!
