Question about Mitsubishi WS-55515 55" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

My Mitsubishi 55in rear projection HDTV has recently been moved and ever since has had a problem with the picture. The screen flips between a normal picture and the picture being compressed in the middle like an hour glass on its side. The picture goes back and forth but spends most of the time in the distorted compressed picture mode. Has anyone experienced this or know how i can fix it?

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. The issue is with the convergence ICs going bad and needs to be replaced. It’s not a difficult job if you want to do this yourself, you should require some basic knowledge about soldering-resoldering components. To start with you’ll have to open the back of the unit and then replace the ICs(STK ICs) which are located behind the black heat sink and also check the resistors as if they are short the ICs might blow again after sometime. There are repair kits available which includes repair instructions with the parts, if you want to do it yourself you can buy and repair it yourself. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Protector glass on a mitsubishi 55in hdtv 1080 #ws-55315


I have the same tv and I took my clear shield off and never put it back on.  The picture is much better without it as it will reflect light and objects in the room making it difficult to see the pic clearly.  I was told by a service tech that the primary purpose of the glass or shield is to prevent damage to the screen from objects, water etc.  If you have no small children in the home you can enjoy a better pic.

Can you post a picture of the screen so I can properly diagnose it. It sounds like the caps on the FMT PWB but a picture would help me be certain.
