Question about Mitsubishi WS-65809 65" Rear Projection Television

4 Answers

Picture Problem The TV is 7 years old. It now blinks shortly after turning it on and the picture bebomes concave. The numbers and letters appear to have a ghost image in red and green. Any crawl at the bottom of the screen (ESPN) also looks concave. It happens intermittently. Sometimes it blinks again and comes back to normal, sometimes it takes 3-5 minutes. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    I had the same problem, then it just went out completely. Now I had to contact a repair company which is very expensive. sux

    I have the same problem. It started out fixing itself in a few minutes and has progressed to warped all the time. The bottom is warped and the three colors shadow themselves mostly in the lower left corner of the screen. What repairs were made on these other 5 sets?

    Same here guys. Had this TV for about 7 years and it just started the concave picture with RGB scatter at the bottom corners. It comes and goes and is getting progressively worse. There must be some fix for this.

Take a look at this video and determine weather you have a true convergence problem or you may just need to adjust convergence with your TV's original remote.


Hope this helps!

Hi Rafael,

First of all thank you for posting your question here at Fixya.
Please confirm if the brand and model number above is correct.
Blinking of the the LED (yellow and blue) at the front panel indicating that the lamp door cover is not seated properly. This cover will engaged to a micro switch giving the signal to the processor, once it is in open position, the unit will not power up and will experienced that kind of blinking error code. Go back to the lamp door cover and ensure that it is properly seat-in.
3D, 2D, red/green/blue ghost on the picture and letters means that the convergence circuitry gone bad. Symptoms is not connected to the light engine. The faulty parts is the convergence chips(IC). This chips are mounted on the large aluminum heat sink and starts with STKXXXX-XX (X means number). The most common STK chips used on Projection TV's is the STK392-110. You have to replaced them both on the board to resolve the issue(red ghosting). It is necessary also to check the resistance value of the resistors around its circuitry using the multimeter. For more info how to repair a convergence problem, watch the video below.

We are getting ghost images and the color is not correct


I have red concave lines going across the screen, plus wording appears double like a ghosting effect, this is ongoing from the time the tv is turned on until it is turned off. This started 3 days ago. Is it time for a new tv, its 9 or 10 yrs old now.
