Question about Mitsubishi VS-45609 TV

1 Answer

I have a mitsubishi vs 45609 with what appears to be a convergence problem. Using the menu convergence settings everything is correct. So it appears that the color guns are out of allignment but I'm not sure that it has individual guns. So how do I correct this issue.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Colors do not line up to each other


I would replace your convergence chips and see if it fixes the problems. I know some tv's also have a menu for fixing the convergence. Try that first.

Try to download the repair manual to your set from internet. It sounds that you have to get into its service mode adjustments. All details are in the repair manual.

The picture looks like 3D on my mitsubishi projected tv


You may be having a convergence problem. Convergence focuses the different color guns of the tv. This is usually a way to set the convergence via your menu. If this doesn't work, you may need new IC chips. This is fairly expensive. It cost me around $300 last time I had it done and it was hard to find anyone to do it. Good luck!

Convergence problem again


I think you might need to do an advanced convergence. this is done threw the service menu. it is complicated and time consuming. however there is still a possibility that the green convergence circuit has failed. there is very little green correction since it is in the middle. most sets don't even have a green convergence circuit. however this one does. these pico fuses are "tiny yellow" look like a small resistor. chech for b+ on all 3 conv.ic's.

Convergence board


It wouldn't be the entire convergence board, you more than likely have a bad convergence STK-IC. Replacing the IC will take a good bit of knowledge and training as far as electronic repair is concerned, plus a complete convergence set up. In other words, unless your certified, you need to contact a tech. The convergence set up alone has driven men to drink.....
