Question about Mitsubishi VS-60805 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Colors properly aligned in HD but non-HD, or vice versa

I recently purchased a used Mitsubishi VS-60805 and set it up with brand new HD TiVo and Time Warner Cable. The picture was perfect on non-HD channels, but in HD I could see a vertically displaced red ghost image and a laterally displaced blue ghost image. I played around with the settings on the TV and found a video manual alignment feature that allowed me to line up a blue cross and a red cross, which made a white cross.

Now HD looks perfect, but non-HD has a vertically displaced red ghost and a laterally displaced blue ghost! Anyone have an idea how to make the alignment correct on both HD and non-HD channels?

Mitsubishi VS-60805 Rear Projection won't operate in HD mode with Cable Box


Since this is an older first generation (1999) HD TV it may not be compatible with newer HDTV receivers because the standards back then were different - Make sure the HD cable box is plugged into the HD component inputs on the back of the TV (not the DVD inputs) and that the menu setting on the TV is set to DTV (not RGB) video. This TV will only accept 480i and 480p signals on the DVD input. Also the HDTV input will only accept 480i,480p and 1080i (it will not work with a 720p signal,make sure your cable box is not set to that mode)

All colors are out of alignment. It is fine but after watching it for about 20 min. It will fall out of alignment


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

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. This is called convergence.

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,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with 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 - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

I have a VS 60805 and i need a Convergence Generator. They say these are no longer Available. Any Suggestions?


General Consensus is that Mitsubishi is a Piece of ****, has been for a long time and I was lucky that my Set worked as long as it did. I guess it is just another benefit of not have any national product in the US anymore. No matter I will never Buy Mitsubishi Again.

Fullscreen HD?


check to see if the box has a tv type setting in it's menu since I don't know what the model of the HD box is it must be in the user manual on how to set this up. it is not the tv that is the problem.
