Question about Mitsubishi WS-65809 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

My 65 mitsubishi has started to have squiggly lines through the picture when you first turn it on. the picture also goes concave then back to normal. After awhile, it stops, but is happening for longer periods of time. It is about 10 yrs old. There is also a blur to the picture. With the price of t.v.'s today, would it be better to try and fix or just bite the bullet and get a new one?

Sounds like the convergence circuit is starting to fail...there are kits available for this set from tvrepairkits.com . The kit isn't all that expensive but the labor to have someone put it in may be expensive.

I have seen this on quite a few Mits's as they are getting to that age. This is usually related to bad caps in the signal path. I could go into more detail if I knew the exact Model Number (it will start with WS or VS) Example VS-60609. But the caps are usually near the 5v regulators.

Picture quality


Contact your local service rep as this sounds like a "not so easy fix' related to the main board or power supply (known issues with Mits boards, especially the capacitors). Cleaning, resetting, re-configuring will not likely make any difference. Verify the problem occurs across all input modes (such as DVD, etc). before taking any service actions.

Red and blue colors go across the screen. picture looks concave.


Greetings joanne7,

The issue you are having could be caused by your television needing the convergence adjusted. During production your televison has the three picture tubes that are converged to form a single image on the screen. Over time these can come out of adjustment.
If you go to this link http://download.jazel.net/misc/filecache/b8/b89bca4c8b740315d378e8ed030461c5_1227-517SeriesOwnersGuide.pdf and check pages 57 and 58, it gives you a very detailed guide on adjusting your convergence. I am aware this model number is slightly different than yours, but I own a 47" Mitsubishi and this is the exact procedure we use to do our convergence so I am confident it is fairly universal.

I hope this helps!
