    Well, that model is a little older. This is probably not a simple fix. These sets had bad capacitors and also leaking picture tube coolant. If it is a capacitor, it is most likely C2P05 (100@16v). To determine if the picture tube(s) are leaking, unplug the set from your power source, take off the front speaker grill, remove the access panel and, with a flashlight, look VERY carefully for signs of leakage on the printed circuit boards. You may see clear liquid in very small amounts, or a white/green look to the spill drops if it has been there a while.

    Then the problem is most likely the capacitor mentioned earlier. At this stage, you might need a local Mitsubishi servicer to replace it.

Mitsubishi TV 65 inch rear projection. WS 65809 I went thru the convergence ic chip replacement years ago. Love the TV. My problem now is that the brightness goes from full bright to full dim then...


The old Mitsubishi units had a super capacitor in the logic circuit instead of a backup battery. This capacitor became leaky over time, causing the problem you describe among others. Number one symptom is set has audio and dark or black picture when powered up. As the super cap charges to full voltage, picture comes and goes.

Mitsubishi WD-62327 Screen is very dim


I tooked the front screen off the TV set. I fallowed the instructions from another wrighter. The Bottom mirror was clouded with dust. I used a cleaner made for cleaning ipods and put it back together with instant success. I had not cleaned it since I got it almost four years ago. I just thought it was getting dim.

As far as the VCR playing black and white it also an easy fix. The Satalite Service man was swapping out my receiver and inadvertaly put the device on componite side of the TV. I put them back on Inpute 1 and 2 and they also work just fine. Thank you for your help.

reading other people porblems I was able to repair it on my own.

My Mitsubishi Model VS-60705 did the same thing a couple of years ago...A TV repair facility replaced the Video card. Any repair facility that works on rear-projection TV's should be able to repair your set. I bought the set on Jan 1, 2000. Coming up on 9 years and the set works like new.

Little white dots on the screen


dirty lens, dirty mirrors, warped light guides, spider webs and mini-UFOs that fly across the inside can cause what you described.

but 6 months is pretty early for a cleaning but possible.

This sounds like it is a problem with the tv. Mitsubishi does have a problem with filter caps in thier regulator circuits. A repair tech will have to fix it.

If its a rear projection TV. It sounds like the Lamp is shot on the projector, or is going. Look in the back and see if it is lit if it is flickering I would definitely suggest replacing it. If that doesnt repair it then I would ultimately suggest the optical engine which is the projector of the TV
