Question about Mitsubishi WS-65809 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

I have a rear projection TV, (Mitsubishi WS-65809) And the convergence will never stay put. I have to readjust the fine convergence every week (for both SD and HD) and that's a PITA. Both the red and blue will be slightly off, but it seems to be always in the same direction, and uniform across the screen for the most part. Is there something to fix or look at or is this just an age-related problem?

It may well be an age-related thing. Repeated wear on the unit can make components less reliable. I've owned a few projection TVs and many of them had to be readjusted every 2 weeks or so just because they're so old.

If you still enjoy the TV, then I guess you could look for some replacement parts, but many of them would be old and expensive anyways.

Good morning, I am in the moving business and have a customer that wants me to move their large TV Mitsubishi medallion tv. She thinks is comes apart in two peices for easy moving and I need instructions...


If the model is a WS-65809 that sey doesnt come apart. Actually very few rear projection TVs can be seperated Some RCA TVs can be disassembled to several pieces. Also I would let customer know that because a CRT TV has three CRTs that are aligned to each other , Moving the TV will cause the convergence to be adjusted. Based on model it can be just pressing the auto convergence option with the remote, But older rear projection TVs (2003 and older) have been known to blow ICs after a move when trying to reset the convergence. The ICs weaken over age and they can blow anytime the convergence adjustment feature is used, so its always a good thing to let someone know that even if very careful when being moved there set may develop convergence issues after a move because its a 3 CRT rear projection TV

Turns of after being watched for several hours.


Do you have the tools required to solder electronics? Do you know how to solder electronics? Have you been trained in CRT safty ? Do you know about High Voltage safty? Is the tv Model number WS-65809? Do you know how to perform static geometry adjustement on a WS65809 if needed? Do you know how to perform static convergence alignment on a WS-65809? Do you know how to perform fine convergence adjustement to a WS-65809?

IF
The answer is :yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes
AND
You can retreive an error code of 23 or 24 right after the tv shuts
itself off .
THEN
There is a 95% chance that I could tell you what to solder , no parts need to be replaced in your television and you would not have to pay someone to repair it.

Good Day;

You have poor connections on your "convergence IC's. Middle board IC's on large silver heat sink. Redo solder before total failure. Good Luck, big IRISH.
