You need to be concerned about the convergence board. This is the board with all the RCA jacks and RF connections. Pull this board out. You will see two very large cooling fins [heat sinks] with two large ICs [black with about 15 pins each. Marked with #392 ---] I don't know the exact# right now. Replace these Ics. And check the small resistors that stand tall next to theses Ics, replace if necessary! Let me know what you find.Thanks for asking me!

I have a model VS 50111 and the colors are out of alignment blue shadow to left yellow to right. Can I fix this problem

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Below are more details for both items. Also, complete repair kits with instructions and repair support are avail from site such as www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....



  • 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.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Colors out of alignment


If you have background in electronics, you can do it. The difficult part here is on how to access those convergence amp(convergence circuit output IC). By replacing those 2 IC and some resistors sometimes, adjust the convergence and your done. Good Luck

Picture on the mitsubishi HD1080 VS-50111


Nope, But your convergenjce chip is about to die. i would turn it off and leave it off and call a tech to rectify it before it takes out the whole board or all 3 as some capacitors are also overheating. Parts $100+Labour of about 1.5 hrs at this stage! later it will be $600

Mitsubishi convergence Problem


You only have 3 colors Red, Blue, and Green. No black or yellow. I would say look for self test diagnosic on here or other sites.
