Question about Mitsubishi VS-60601 60" Rear Projection Television
Your tv is a projection tv that uses CRT technology - the image is generated by 3 small standard tv tubes. Because of that the news aren't good: what you describe is typical of a missing synchro signal - the main processor/circuit of the tv can't synchronize the internal oscillators to the signal of the broadcasted channel. This happens only when the discriminator (the part that is supposed to detect the difference and send a correcting signal) is malfunctioning. Since this happens only at start, when the parts are cold, it means that this is caused by the aging of the parts.
The only way to fix that is to replace the aged parts - practically you would have to replace all the capacitors and a great part of the resistors, efectively rebuilding the tv. But this isn't the really bad news, this is: because the tv functions out of sync for a substantial amount of time the deflection modules - especially the horizontal one, where the high tension is generated - is subjected to high stresses so it can fail at any time. When that will happen the tv will be effectively dead and repairing it would cost you a lot - at least $500.
My advice to you: accept that this tv is on its last legs, pray that it lasts longer and in between start saving for a new one - at 13 years it has had an exceptionally long life, i doubt that any one you will buy after it will last half of that.
