    Why is the picture shutting off? When there is visability it is not a recogizable picture just wavey colors that are distorted that go sideways.

    The examples you show of early convergance problems are nothing close to what I have.
    Also the off on and picture and occasional colored fuzz only happens intermittently?
    Once I power off and back on the picture comes back on. If it was heating up it should not come back on so fast I would think.

If the picture becomes all distorted after a while, either with colors not matching, or deformed image with bands on sides or up and down of picture, then you need to replace the power amp ICs in the convergence board. This is quite a delicate job and it is done desoldering old ICs and soldering new ones in the convergence board. More components like resistors and capacitors in convergence board may need replacement.The power supply must also be tested, as sometimes a PSU problem may cause a similar effect (if colors are not matching is convergence by the way).

Cost to replace convergence ICs starts at about $200. It can go up to $300/350 if there are further problem. To get a quote and to locate an authorized technician in your area contact Mitsubishi Support.

Here part list. Most parts are not in stock, but you get parts numbers:Mitsubishi WS-65813 Parts List.

    Image is probably distorted because the convergence ICs are gone. The picture is shutting off when the two integrated circuits that keep the three red green blue colors matched fail completely. The video signal is aligned through convergence ICs, when they heat up and fail completely the picture goes off.

    Here an interesting page showing you the repair.

    Here examples of early stage convergence problems.

    Heating up means that the components are charged when power pass by. Convergence at an early stage is like that. If problem is not convergence, then it is PSU or ballast. In some case you can have problems that reset when you turn off concerning main controller board.

    If you really think it is not convergence, then take a picture of the raster and upload here using the upload picture button. Picture may be too big, in that case use a service like this

    I told you that the repair is likely below $400 because faults that go over that price are panel, light engine and dmd board problems. From your description it does not sound like this parts are involved. Faults concerning this parts do not go temporarily away by turning off.

    We call a component , a wire or a component "hot" when there is power passing through the part.

    Sorry about the misunderstanding.

How do I program the jamo torsten sound bar to my remote control?

Great product, horrible instructions that focused on every language known to man rather than clear steps. Hope this helps....for the JAMO TORSTEN 2 WAY SOUNDBAR W/ WIRELESS 10" SUB 360 Series, as well as other Klipsch soundbars.

If the SoundBar is in STANDBY mode (solid RED status light), push the <SOURCE> button on the SoundBar until the status light is solid GREEN.

STEP ONE (Place the unit in learning mode): With the status light showing solid GREEN, press and hold the <SOURCE> and <MUTE> buttons on the front of the SoundBar at the same time (approximately 3 seconds) until the status light flashes RED and GREEN.

STEP TWO (Select the function to learn): Press the <MUTE> button once on the SoundBar (the status light changes to solid ORANGE).

STEP THREE (Learn the function): Hold your remote control within one foot and pointed at the front of the SoundBar. Slowly press the <MUTE> button on your remote control four times. On the first three presses, the status indicator light will flicker ORANGE with each press. If the unit has successfully learned the function, on the fourth press of the button, the light will flash GREEN several times and then turn to solid GREEN.

To program the remaining functions, simply repeat all steps, substituting <MUTE> with the new function and button presses (VOLUME UP, and VOLUME DOWN) on steps TWO and THREE.

Green light on my power supply stays lit after unplugging

Usually the light will time out after the capacitor has drained. Your machine is getting a bit old , your PSU may be the problem. If you plug it in and push the on/off button and it blinks, fans spin and shuts down, it's most likely the PSU. Look for a in-line fuse on the Motherboard, if blown, replace. Look at the motherboard closely for damaged components, capacitors, etc.

Did you check the service manual troubleshooting guide yet. You can try disconnecting the power to the inverter board and see if it will stay on and have sound.

Or just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.

Blinking green light on mitsubishi ws65813 tv i replacec the capicators but last time a tech had to replace a fuse too. where is the fuse?

On the power supply board near the connectors for outputs. Probably a 'pico' fuse which is small and soldered in - looks like a solid colored smaller resistor, usually.

Optoma 719, can't get lamp and fan to turn on.

There is a stuffed 10v 3300uf capacitor on the power board. You need to replace it.
Bellow you can check in the picture where the capacitor is located.
Notice that in this picture I have already took the bad capacitor out and replaced with two small cords to reach the bottom and test the new capacitor.
To reach this place is not fast, several layers of plastic and metal must be removed, but is not a hard task to take the capacitor out and replace it for another.
It works just great! Now it is back on track with awesome image.
