Tip & How-To about Mitsubishi WS-65809 65" Rear Projection Television
I had all my new parts bought 2 tackle the convergence problem I was facing...CFIs, solder, flux, new iron, CANS OF COMPRESSED AIR!!, (had 2 go back out 4 that) & I dove in. I cant even remember the last time I soldered something but had read soo many blogs about people with way less experience than me gettin it done.. so what the heck.. I cant watch it the way it is anymore anyways! So I unscrewed all the screws & put em in a plastic bag.. pulled the covers off..front & back! U get more light, have more access if u need it, can get an"extra hand" from the other side, & there is somewhere 4 all the dust 2 go when u empty a compressed can in there.
So after an hour of carefully planning my next moves, labeling & pulling wires & very closely inspecting almost every solder point on those boards w my Mag light.. I just didnt get it... I thought 4 sure there would b some signs of damage or SOMETHING 2 say "hey im broke!" but I couldnt see anything.
Finally...(luckily just before).. I was about 2 remove the "bad" CFIs..there it was! The very end solder of 1 of the CFIs on the under side of the board..was a lil tiny crack horizontaly accross the 1st pin solder. I gave it a wiggle..very loose..gave the next few wiggles..didnt move. So I applied the tiniest amount of solder 2 fix that pin up & pushd the board in only enough 2 hook up the wires & went 4 the smoke test....Holy ****! That IS a good picture!!! & it actually should only have cost me the price of the solder & gun.. ----So just take ur time & really inspect it. U may have less work than u think! ;)
