Question about Mitsubishi VS-4543 45" TV

1 Answer

Burnt out tube?

I just got this TV from a neighbor who moved out and he said the TV worked fine, but one of the tubes burnt out, it was either a blue or a green one, I don't remember what he said. He also said it caused the green and blue colors to not display properly. So I turned on the TV and it works, and there's also a quarter-sized blue dot in the middle of the screen. Not sure what that is either. Are either of this viable problems that can be fixed?

If you have a dot, this means that there is no scanning to that colour channel. This fault can be in the scan amplfiers or the deflection yoke itself. Another issue, is that it is also possible that the tube is weak. I am sure that the person you took the set from had an estimate done on it, and did not fix it for very obvious reasons.

This set will be very expensive to fix. Go out and treat yourself to a good LCD or Pasma set, and you will enjoy it much more than an old tube type projection TV set!

One yellow, one pink, and one blue spots appeared on my tv screen.

The set if projection which model here is, has arced and now each of the three picture tubes used has a tiny permanent burn mark on its screen.

That is what you are seeing, the set uses three picture tubes with screens like the old tv sets===the coating has been burnt in each, want to prove it, remove rear cover and cover any one of the three lens and that mark on one tube will go a way.

Not fixable.

3 round dots on screen yellow red blue

I have to be honest with you, I suspect the marks are burns on the three picture tubes and permanent.

A simple way to prove this that requires no technical knowledge:

Remove the back cover and locate the three large lens (red, green and blue tubes) and with the set on cover each lens one at a time; if a mark vanishes that tube is burnt in the middle.

If you have three dots or tear shaped marks the set arced and burnt a small area of each picture tube's screen.

These tubes are about 4x5 inches at the screen and are like a regular tv screen; there is a phospher coating and if the set arcs it will burn the coating away in the middle of the screen on each tube.

Confirm this and if true two things would have to happen: replace all three tubes (not worthwhile) and find what caused the arc.

I do not like to give people bad news but I am honest and if this input helped or informed you give this solution a "very helpful" rating as I do this here for free.

If you have ANY questions or need advice do not hesitate to post a comment here and I will respond.

Blue screen

The blue picture tube has gone bad. Sadly they are no longer availible for that unit. But the blue tube assembly can be sent back to a company called Video Display. They rebuild the tube for a very reasonable price. The hitch is that it takes a professional tv tech to reinstall and align the rebuilt tube. Most respectable shops will do this work but the repair is spendy. Usually around $450 to $500 or more.

Seeing red !

I had a television that went to a bright shade of blue.A friends neighbor worked for sony television plant where the new tubes came down the assembly line.His job was to make sure tubes were working fine,if one color was dominant then his job was to smack the front center of the tube with a rubber mallot to fix the problem.He suggested i try that with my tube while the set was on.It worked and solved my blue problem.Apparently he explained,the gun connections in the tube came loose and to fix it was to smack it this caused the connection to reweld itself.For you I would use the palm of an open hand and smack the tube dead center with a good hard smack.Dont be afraid of breaking the glass because its very thick and strong.Give this a try.Hope it helps.Good luck!

can you look into the blue lens when the set is playing using a hand held mirror and see if there is a picture in the blue CRT. If not you will need a new tube for the blue. If you do need a tube let me know as I have a source for good used tubes that are very reasonably priced.

Tv has bad blue crt (pix tube) said the repairman

blue tube is very common on this type of tv, His prices are very fair.My concern is the other tubes i usually could tell if the other tubes looked ok. If he says they seem fine.And you like this tv it is worth fixing. Make sure if you do say yes you get a 1 year warr on tube and a warr on labor,

Im not sure if you got price with yoke assy to or just tube. It is very hard to put yoke in tube and have it adjust properly. make sure when you talk to him it
is a new tube and yoke assy , If not dont fix.

thanks doctor video ladingedgeelectronics.

No image from blue light

Looks like you lost video going to that blue tube. I would check for loose connections or a wire being jarred loose. These projection sets can't take much rough handling when moving.
