I am not aware of this model having the pip bypass procedure . Older models Yes . I have though seen some of these sets were the picture tube leaked onto the cicuit board causing this problem. With the tv unplugged and the back removed , Use a flash light and look at the board on the left to see if there is any liquid on this board . It is usually below the metal brackets where the picture tubes are mounted . Sometimes you can swipe your fingers on the under side and fill the fluid coolant . Then look right below that area and you'll see it on the board . Use paper towels to dry up well . Then plug back in to see if your problem is resolved. Now if it leaked that is telling me your seals are leaky and need to be replaced and coolant added to that picture tube that was the problem . This can be very tricky to do . If that was your problem call around to get your best price to repair your set without them telling you , you'll need to get the picture tube replaced . Good luck

Vertical sync problem. This issue could be related to faulty capacitors on the PIP module, as the vertical sync runs through the PIP module. If you would like to know how to by pass the module to test if it is the PIP module let me know and will post the procedure.

This set is known for some very common problems some of which is just what you described. For a small fee, I can give you some common solutions that will take care of these and other issues. The only problem is you must know how to take things apart and put them back together without doing further damage, AND you must know how to solder /desolder components.

Mitsibishi 50" vs50607 convergence?

Rolling picture could be a pip module problem as both horizontal and vertical sync goes through the PIP module. These sets have been known to have bad caps in the pip board causeing loss of vertical sync.If you need any more info let me know.

Vertical rolling

Does you set have PIP (picture in picture)? If it does then the PIP module has a bunch of capacitors that have gone bad (dried out and leaked) causing you to loose vertical sync. Vertical synchronization is what locks your picture keeping it from rolling. Even if you don't have PIP then still you have a vertical sync problem. The set would have to be checked by a tech to find exactly what's happening. Stargazer

Intermittent vertical jitter.

These sets have a PIP module which is plugged into main board and has a brown ground wire to the can.Surface mount caps c7001 and c7036 are usually the problem but if the capacitors have leaked too much you may never recover the board,CURE eliminate PIP by putting 10 mfd 50v cap from pin 5 to 11 and another from pin 9 to 7 on the VP plug under the main PCB
