Wavy horizonal disturbance in picture

I have a 2001 50'' Mitsubishi rear projection big screen TV, Model VS-50609, Series 114271. There is a wavy disturbance which runs through the display near the bottom of the picture. It starts out as three seperate red, blue and green lines for about 4 inches then converges into a single blurry wave which distorts the picture.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms

  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Convergence does not respond. fuse good


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded over.

Mitsubishi VS-4543


is that wavy in vertical motion? and bending?  in that case maybe you have low voltage in your power inlet! or can you specify the color of wave and motion, if horizontal or vertical?

Basically i have an older rear projection model mitsubishi not sure of the model #, it is currently having lines run from top to bottom like waves on the picture screen! is there anything you can tell me...


Many different mitsubishi's have problems with voltage regulators going out and causing wavy diagonal lines that scroll the picture from top to bottom or vice versa. Without a model number it's difficult to clarify.

Unplug the tv and leave it unplugged for a couple hours. Plug tv back in press reset button. TV led may flash for a day but should come on. I did this last night to mine and it came on at 11am today.

VS-50609 Wavy Picture


I fixed this by getting the service manual at http://www.eserviceinfo.com/download.php?fileid=32177

You don't have to sign up or pay anything; it's a free download.

Grab the first three parts and unrar them. In the service manual there is a section that shows you how to get into the Circuit Adjustment Mode (MENU, 1,2,5,7.) At the time of my repair I had a really bad bulge shape in my display. I was able to straighten everything out by adjusting values in there. There is a section in the manual that tells you what values to change; can't remember them offhand. You'll also want to perform a convergence adjustment after you straighten out the screen, as your colors won't be pointing in the right direction afterwards.

My VS-50609 Big Screen tv is showing only black and white


Maybe your colour setting is wrong or worse your color tube is no good. You will have to change the screen settings (color). If it wont work probably color tube is gone.
Good Luck

Mitsubishi VS-45607 45" Big Screen


Good Day, Delano1981;

It may cure the problem but I would suspect the 9 Volt source
CHECK C2P05 100 UFD 16 V OFF PIN 3 OF IC2P01 AND
IC2P01 PART # 270P466020 (9-VOLT REGULATOR). BOTH
ARE ON THE SIGNAL PCB.

This should resolve your TV"s condition.

Good Luck, big IRISH.
