    i have the same problem. you can still see what's playing but the whole screen is too blue. Is it because of the blue picture tube? If so, how much does it cost to fix this?

Check if your red CRT and green CRT lights up or not. If it doesn't light up your CRT is no good. Because its a damn sony the picture tube is $350. I advice the people not to buy sony.

MITSUBISHI WS55809 Blue Screen


I'm not clear on this. When does it show a blue screen? When you have it in HDTV mode? A Blue Screen means it's not getting a signal (or the signal is very weak, resulting in more static than picture). If it is a blue screen for HDTV, how are you sure the HDTV receiver is working? If you can answer those questions for me, I should be able to track down the problem. I'm not sure which direction to go yet.

BLUE SPOTS ON SCREEN


The Blue Screen of Death (also known as a stop error, BSoD, bluescreen, or Blue Screen of Doom) is a colloquialism used for the error screen displayed by some operating systems, most notably Microsoft Windows, after encountering a critical system error that can cause the system to shut down to prevent irreversible damage to the system's integrity.

Screen turns blue


You may have a bad blue picture tube but there is a way to deal with this first---This is a 2001 model and does not have a light engine---I did one of these with the same problem a week ago---the set has a black plastic block with six controls---three are Focus(red,green,blue) the other 3 controls are Screen controls(red, green, blue) Someone has to remove the entire piece on the front of the set below the screen(usually a plastic part) most of the time it is secured with 3 screws on either side of the set in the back; once you remove the screws the entire piece should pull out(pull from right to left(it will not fall off or come out easy--it is held in with several large plastic pegs) With it removed there is an inspection plate with 4 screws-----the screen/focus block is behind it.

You need to look very closely at the block to identify the focus versus screen controls----one row left to right will be marked Focus and the other row left to right will be marked screen------YOU need to locate the Blue Screen control(they are black like the block) With the set on(be careful) go to a video input with nothing connected---if you see a blue screen as well as the input number turn the BLUE SCREEN CONTROL SLOWLY TO THE LEFT UNTIL THE BLUE is gone.

If this cures the problem you may only be buying yourself some time----if the blue picture tube is bad sooner or later this trouble may return----I have seen sets where this was adjusted and the set worked for a year or more with no repeat of the trouble----replacing the blue tube would likely cost you 400 - 500 parts and labor.

I do this here for free so if this has helped you take a moment and give me a vote here.

TV screen Flashes blue and then shuts off.


When it flashes blue, are the flashes bright blue lines going across the screen with the picture in the background, if so, It sounds like the Blue tube or blue driver circuit is breaking down after a short period of time. If this is the case, the uPC that controls the set is detecting a large current drain on and is shutting the set off for protection, An engineers expert eye is required I`m afraid. Ian.

Horizontal blue lines with a slight blue wash in the screen


Hi,
Its because of Over Voltage of Screen (G2) to Blue CRT.
Take off front lower cover (speaker grill) and unscrew board. There you will need to find Focus Block mounted having 6 control knobs. 3 knobs are for Focus control and 3 are for Screen volts control. Find Blue Screen control knob and turn is Counter Click Wise slightly until bluish shade disappear on screen including few blue horizontal lines.
If you select AV input to adjust that will be fine as you do not need to wait for dark-scene.
