    Hi Slinteriors,

    The fix gave me the pix back. Now I have retrace lines, flutters, sprites and other fiddley widgets on the screen. Is there an easy fix for that? If not what do you recommend in 60" LCD screen TV's. (No Plasma tnx I don't really like the pix on them.)

    Tnx again,

You can bypass the PIP module using two 4.7uf/50v electrolytic capacitors. The PIP module plugs into two connectors on the main board. Remove the PIP module, and on connector VP on the main board (the 11 pin connector), use one cap to jumper from pin 7 to 9 (negative lead on pin 9); and use the other cap to jumper from pin 5 to 11 (negative lead on pin 11). If the PIP module is bad, you will now have video.Just solder a length of insulated wire on the capacitor leads so they wont short out crossing over each other. just plug the lead wires directly into the main boards connector where you removed the PIP board.

    I have also tried this fix on some mitsubishi models when the standard Bypass didnt work. You can try this to see if it works.

    The solution is to put the - side of a 4.7uf cap to pin 5 and put the + side to a 2.7k resistor, the other end of this resistor goes to pin 11. Then take a 4.7k resistor, attach one end to pin 11 and the other end to ground at pin 4 . This drops the 2vPP to 1VPP. I do this with the VP connector off the PIP board and use the connector only. For the chroma I use a 1uf cap from pins 7 to 9 with the - at pin 7. The only LCD I could even begin to recomend would be any of the Sony models In my opinion nothing else comes close for picture and sound quality.

    I wanted to mention that I have a source for obselete mitsubishi circuit boards if you would like me to try and locate one for you. Let me know and I will see what I can come up with. Just post the numbers off your PIP module.

Pip won't turn off. can the pip be removed or bypassed?

Some of the older sets with PIP require only the original remote to operate or turn on and off.

The PIP board usually develops problems with surface mounted caps and there is a "modification" where traces are cut and two 4.7 mfd caps inserted which will bypass the PIP board from the set--a model number would tell me if this is possible in your set or not--you missing the original remote? Almost any Mitsubishi remote of the era with PIP controls should do the job.

My picture in picture isn't working?

Most of these sets have two tuners--one for main and one for PIP.

If main picture works fine but PIP is bad or Green? either the PIP tuner or the PIP board is bad---these were known to have the PIP have problems but it was more rare than their sets made before it.

Mitsubishi CS-35301 has a rolling screen. Need to access service menu.

you need replace capacitors in vert.output circ. Not a service menu.

Where is the pip board located on a Mitsubishi vs-50605?? need to know so i can replace caps please!

what is the problem with your set? I can only find a small stand up board on the signal pcboard that has anything to do with pip. I can't find anything on the mitsubishi web site that says anything about changing any caps on a pip board.

Mitsubishi tv model VS6061 rear projection with rolling picture.

I know this is an old thread, but I would like to post this information in the hope that someone will find it useful.
I just finished fixing this problem on my 1994 VS-6061... the problem is the PIP (Picture In Picture) board located on the Power Signal board. The PIP board contains the numbers 530B552. I bypassed the PIP board by following the directions I found at the following link:
"Plug in a 4.7ufd @ 35v filter cap (+)at pin 5,(-)at pin 11. Plug in a .01ufd(any voltage) between pin 7 and 9. Just plug the caps into the socket, where the PIP board was mounted (they don't need to be soldered). Just don't let the leads from the two capacitors touch, as they cross each other. The 0.01 cap is non-polarity, so either way it plugged is fine. Basically you will bypass y-signal through 4.7u, in pin 5, out pin 11, and bypass c-signal in pin 7, out pin 9 of the PIP socket.”

The bypass requires 2 capacitors: One 4.7ufd @ 35v and one Non-Polar 0.01ufd @ any voltage.
Remove the PIP board, then plug the two capacitors into the socket where the PIP board was mounted: plug the 4.7ufd capacitor with (+)at pin 5,(-)at pin 11 and plug in the non-polar .01ufd capacitor between pins 7 and pin 9.
If there is a ground wire (possibly brown) soldered to one of the tin cases on the PIP board, then you should connect this ground wire to the PIP socket either at pin 2, 4, 6, 8 or 10 which are grounds of the socket.
This PIP board was used in many Mitsubishi televisions and they were plagued with problems...This is why many of these older Mitsubishi televisions had similar problems…
Good luck

Older Mits TV's have a PIP circuit board that fails,upsetting the is the solution....

1) Remove PIP PC board ..... discard

2) pull chassis... on underside of main board, locate VP plug

3) Using 22mf 50v NP capacitors, connect pin 5 to pin11
and pin 7 to pin 9......

large pix stable.....but no PIP box.....PIP PCB NLA......

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.

PIP function

The Main Picture will eventually go out or at least become distorted. Generally the PIP circuit can be repaired by replacing a couple of capacitors. Probably a job for a Pro but it will need to be done at some point.

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
