Question about Mitsubishi WT-46809 46" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Mitsubishi WT-46809 pitcure is gone

I bought this 46' HD ready TV in 2001 which has worked great so far. Recently started having static in picture which got worse. Called a local tech who said the problem was in the digital video board with the chip - he tried to repair it and now there is no picture at all. As a result, the board needs to be replaced and he says total cost of part + labor will be $500+. Should I replace it since I don't stand to lose much more if it does not work or should I go out and buy a new TV? Will I get other problems soon like bulbs burning out etc? Also, if recommending a new TV, please suggest which ones.
Thanks!

Your tech didnt know what he was talking about because that model usually only has problems with bad compacitors which is usually a very inexspensive fix however if he replaced the chip he probably replaced the eprong and failed to reprogram I would recomend you getting a service manual for your tv with online free tech support that wll try to help you straighten out this problem because it would be much cheaper than replacing either the board or your tv you may be able to fix this yourself with the tech support or at worse case senerio the tech will be able to get you a new board for a lot less than 500.00

Wt-46809 has convergance issues


Replacing the Convergence IC's should do the trick. But it is not a easy repair do to the disassembly requierments. I would recommend calling Mitsubishi at 18003322119 to get a local service facility to come out and give you a estimate to repair.

Good Day y'all;
When the is picture being intermittent and bowing then the most common problem is that the convergence circuit has failed or is failing. If you don't get fixed, the will go DOA soon.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

In order for you to receive HD broadcasting you must have a HD-TV, otherwise you wont get the picture in HD. Also I should point out that you need to make sure that the signal itself is being broadcast in HD.
