Question about Mitsubishi VS-50705 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Have no service manual--but suspect convergence output amps--now power issue

The problem began with a rolling picture broken by several horizontal bars for half an hour and then the roll would cease and as long as the unit was left on, the picture would remain steady. Suspect vertical control circuit and convergence output amplifier STK's. No bad solder joints or broken trace are apparent. wiggle and tap tests yield no changes. Signal from pin 7 on IC802 is ringing with all sorts of overlapping signals. This had me believing the problem was a bad solder joint or crack in the trace...possibly bad amp. I wanted to test using manual circuit adjustment however the unit would not permit entry in to Service Adjustment Mode despite setting Direct key entry mode to "On". Since beginning to troubleshoot the signal and main boards, the unit suddenly ceased to complete powering on. Have STBY 12V on board and the fuses are intact....130V and 18V + HV is present for an instant and it would seem a protection circuit kills the process before it can complete.

    will try that and post back here...i suspected a protection circuit...but will try convergence yokes. You wouldn't happen to have SAMS for the VS 50705 VZ7 chassis? I have service manual for VS 50707 VZ8

    unplugging yokes at DY makes no difference. I should have specified more clearly: During the process of troubleshooting the main board, line fuse blew and then after replacing the fuse, the unit exhibited the symptoms mentioned from here on: Self diag codes do not
    come up currently due to power not completely coming on Prior to
    failure to power "On" the self-diag code came up as 12--normal no
    errors and >>
    a. Option menu; press MENU 1270

    b. Service menu; press MENU 1257.
    <the menus prior to the latest issue of complete power "On" failure, and
    i was at that time able to set Direct key entry mode to "On" but the
    REW, Play, FWD, etc keys failed to bring up service mode settings.

    most pressing issue currently is the failure to completely Power "On".
    Upon resolving this, I then need to address the rolling vertical
    blanking issue. I also do not have the service manual for this
    unit...only VS50507, VZ8 chassis, so I am winging this one.

    Unit will power on only long
    enough (500µs) upon pressing power button either with remote or on
    front panel to give 18V, 130V and then K903 de-energizes and kills HV
    and 16V, etc. before any diag codes can display. here's the sequence: set clicks on, Horiz.
    Output energizes, flyback energizes, 1/2 second later K903 clicks off
    and set goes back to "off" more on checks, bypassing Q971 will force the on/off relay K903 to energize and remain energized. SW12 and SW130 result, but nothing else comes crt, audio, tuner, etc.

Its most likely the convergence ICs that are shutting the set down. Have you tried unplugging the convergence yokes to see if the set will then power up?

Suspect flyback fault but not sure....power takes several seconds to turn on again after putting off...the screen voltage is less than 100volt but focus voltage ok

Check and replace damaged component/s at its horizontal scan output section circuit. Check the LOT (Line Output Transformer) too for damage. Replace the horizontal scan output transistor. Check the input voltage to LOT. If the voltage is absent check the feeder resistor; if any. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

How shrink picture size in AKAI 14" portable TV

Less power output from the internal SMPS; usually 110v, may less. Horizontal output capacitor may leaky. Horizontal output transistor fault may occur. In rare cases deflection yoke assembley fault.
If the picture is stamped size; suspect the power supply. If the picture is less in width, suspect the above said capacitor, and the lenearity coil fitted on the main board.

Convergence issue... I tried to manually fix it through the menu option without any luck. The convergence does curve at the top and bottom of the screen.

It seems the solder is broken in Vertical Convergence Amplifiers or it is damage internally. This model has 2 Conv. Amps: 1 for Horizontal (Red, Green and Blue) and 1 for Vertical Convergence output (Red, Green and Blue), if the convergence does curve at the top and bottom, it is because Vertical Converegence output is no good. The Conv. Amp. costs around 20 dlls. Thats why you can not fix it with the Menu option. Good luck!

Horizontal convergence line rolling up the screen

It sounds like an Intergrated Circuit (IC) has fried. Even on a good day, this is not something you can attack at home. As a tech (and as an owner of that model samsung), I'd need a map & tools to know what's going on. Your best bet in this situation and let them recommend an authorized service center in your area. but this is a rather serious problem...

thank u

Service Manual for Toshiba 57H82

By the red being "off" I suspect you have a convergence problem and adjusting will bnot likely fix the problem. The convergence amps need to be replaced but if you email me I can send you the servoce manual... Just provide me with enough info in your mail, model number, because I get nearly 3000 emails a day and I won't likely remember what manual you're looking for...

VZ7 chassis problem began with rolling picture and now protection kills power on process

Good Day, NT-Services;

You may a vertical problem but I think it's not the vertical output amp. The problem should be in the voltages feed the vertical circuit. I have had cocern many times, so try this first:

Replace these caps no matter how they check.

2. Shuts down; may be intermittent, self-diagnosis ERROR 23 or 24. Check solder connections at connector "DY" on the yokes. Or/and check C411 2200 UFD 35V AND C412 10UFD 50V, both located on the main PCB.

3. Service adjustment codes:
a. Option menu; press MENU 1270
b. Service menu; press MENU 1257.

I hope this was helpful. Good day, big IRISH.

Picture is now a thin horizontal line

now only visible in a thin horizontal line. first of all you reduce brightness to monimum. it just to protect your tv from crt demage. your problem is in horizontal output section as you have mentioned that week or so ago the right and left bottom edges of the picture began to move in like a sideways triangle filled with black so this sympton is due to hor. section problem. your flyback transformer or horizontal output might be defective. but remember check for power supply is ok from surge protector hope this will help.

No horizontal red convergence control

Probably the red convergence output IC has failed. The chip is basically a stereo amplifier that serves as a horizontal amplifier and a vertical amplifier. I suspect the vertical part has failed and is not uncommon. Should be generic STK392-150's or maybe STK392-110/120 I believe. By the way when the line moves up and down that means the vertical is working when it moves side to side the horizontal is working.
