    Have there been any brown outs? How old is the set?

    Sounds like the power supply.

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.

This is a very common failure on Projection sets. Its called a convergence problem.

You may have one or more of the following symptoms.
  • Screen looks 3D
    Colors don't line up
    One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
    Screen is bowed or warped.
    No Audio / No Video

You can see some examples and find a fix here...

It is starting to have a convergence problem, for a short time then go back to normal. There is a big bow in the middle of the screen.


carefully remove the back of the tv and look for the convergence panel then make a note of where the plug/socket connections go then remove

once you have done this use a good soldering iron and re-solder any bad connections on the panel

that should sort it , post back if you have any more questions.

Good Day, sam;
Sam it depends on "smudge".
If it's an oily type; then a mild soap, like dawn, on damp, warm soft cotton type cloth may remove it.
There are products found in most large best buy, circuit stores that sell a screen cleaner. It's sold in a small spay bottle, about 2-3 ounces. Always spray onto cloth NOT screen. Always wipe/clean with up & down strokes, NOT side to side or at an angle.
If the screen is smudged after attempts of trying to 'cleanning' a scratch, then only replacing the screen will fixya problem, cost will be in the range of $100.00-$250.00.
Good Luck, hope this was helpful, big IRISH.

MITSUBISHI WT-46809 46" HDTV CONVERGENCE IC PROBLEM


On this set if it still turns on and you see a picture then the only thing you will need to replace are the ICs. Use heat sink compound on the new ICs before replacing the old ones. If you have a parts supplier in your town, then, use them. If not, Radio Shack will do in a pinch. The old ones may be stuck to the heat sink, so, a flat blade screwdriver may help with that. Use a clean soldering iron and good solder wick. Good Luck

Mitsubishi WT-46809 Intermittent color problem


I have the MITSUBISHI WT-46809 46" HDTV CONVERGENCE IC PROBLEM as well. I just ordered the STK392-570 IC for 7 bucks and I am going to attempt to switch them both out (two of them). I am getting the overstated "bow tie", "RBG separation" issue that you are talking about. I am going to attempt to de-solder the intergrated chips and put new ones in. I figure it is worth the shot, insted of paying 350-650 bucks to have some **** with average skills do the same I figure it is better to have this **** with average skills do it and keep the cash. I will let you know how it goes.... DJ
