Question about Mitsubishi WS-55859 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

The picture on my set looks like the blue bulb casts a shadow that extending down from the top of the screen in horizontal arc through the middle of the screen. I took the magnifying lens off and looked down the "tube" and can see the arc clearly on the picture that's down the "tube". I don't think that it's a tube problem.

Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.

To get fixed either call in a local TV repair company or goto sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com to get a repair kit with instructions.

Nikon d-90, shadows in pictures


if you're using pop up flash, you'll get more shadows doing a portrait shot than a landscape shot just due to the position of the flash bulb and the angle the shadows are cast.

Black spot in the middle of the screen looks like it has a burned spot


Yes if it uses 3 picture tubes one is burnt dead center--cover the lens one at a time to see which is causing this--permanent damage caused by a arc.

If a newer set you have a display unit with a dead pixel.

The model indicated uses what is called a Optical Light Engine, it is a very expensive part and likely is your problem---not much else will cause this trouble.

Picture blury and stretched


You have bad convergence ICs, requires disassembly and soldering to replace, quan (2) stk392-120 can use 150s or stk394-160 also.
they are located on the SSM CBA facing back left side, many delicate cables , torx 10 screws also look for any discolored 6.8ohm resistors near the ICs, usually (2) burnt resistors. most shops charge around $300 for the job done in house. Also will need to check that the yoke aren't loose and tilted (philips had black tape on some). and you may need a fluid change by now on the Blue and green CRTs (a professional job for sure). good luck !

Blue tint and lines on screen.


Those lines sound like "retrace lines" and several things can cause them. The most common are shorts inside the picture tube and shorted semiconductors in the video driver circuits. They can also be seen if the blue screen voltage is too high or if someone has tampered with the screen voltage control.
