Mitsubishi WS-5541 light blue glow


I know these sets pretty well--worked on a lot of them when new and later--one of two possible ideas=

1. Either a odd convergence problem==confirmed or denied by going into the convergence menu (in customer menu) and selecting advanced which will bring up a grid of lines--if see the same issue (I will attach a photo of a Mitsubishi with this problem) it can be fixed.

2. Some sort of issue with the circuit board on the end of the Blue tube(you are missing blue=black) but usually in this set if that happens it is uniform and on both sides of the screen, not the top.

Let me know what you find.

I doubt it is convergence, but does not hurt to look--if the missing area was perfectly rectangular I would suspect up/down centering adjustment.

There is one other possible thing to try--we will leave it for last--set has 3 hidden menus and one is OPTION menu which allows a hard reset of entire set--sets everything back to factory except convergence adjustments which are stored in another area.

Starting last night our tv has had a "ghost" thing


What you have is a very common convergence issue which could either be rather spendy if you take it to a technician like me. It usually costs approximately between $300-$400 if yo bring it to someone who knows what they are doing OR you could go to www.tvrepairkits.com and order the convergence repair kit for about $75-$80. Ed will set you up with the resistors, the integrated circuits, thermal paste, and step by step directions. It would take a novice about an hour and a half to complete the repair and you would save yourself some money. Sorry, there is no scan option to fix it.

I have a glow or a shadow around everything I watch...I tried the converse blue but i dont know if i did it right bc it didnt work...how can I fix that?


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.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed. Notice how dull the colors are and how white the screen looks. The screen may also look red, orange, dull, etc.

TV set after fluid change. Notice how bright the colors are now. Everthing looks crisp and sharp again.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

I have a line that goes from the top to the bottom of the screen, when on the blue screen I can see it well, but when watching tv you can see a faint yelloe line in the same place. (right side of screen)


I have a toshiba plasma 1080p thats all I know, I see the line the clearest on the blue screen, you know when you change to an imput that has nothing using it, and when watching tv or games a very faint yellow line you gotta really focus on to see. But I wanna make sure this is not gonna get worse. Thanks for your response let me know.

Mitsubishi ws65613 no picture or sound, blue screen only


Good Day;
Blue screen that has gotten worse over the past few days, I would suspect fluid on your signal board.
The three CRT's in the TV has coolant that tries to keep them cool but they have a problem with the 'glycol' leaking out of it's chamber.
Take speaker grill off, remove panel and look on the right side of opening. Look for fluid on the board, shinny substance, it's hard to see so look closely. That is the most common problem.
2&3 are the CRT's or the CRT's drive circuit.
Good Luck, Day,let me know, Big Irish.

BIG TROUBLE with my 52" Phillips Magnavox Rear Projection Tv, HELP!!


It sounds like the 3 "GUNS" are not aligned.
One the controls at the bottom, left hand side You will see an arrow pointing to the first 2 on the left.
That will allow you to scroll down the list of options until you see....CONVERGANCE!
make the red gun center by using the up/down arrows on right. Then add the next 2 until you see a white X or cross.
Thats it!
