First a reset may not help unless I know what your problem is.

If model listed (WS-55511) IS CORRECT: set has 3 hidden menus:

Option Menu (hard reset of all settings to factory)
Technical Menu (Adjustments for various things)
Convergence Menu for adjusting convergence.

THESE ARE NOT ACCESSED FROM CUSTOMER MENU. Each requires Mitsubishi remote and a 4 digit code .......

So, What is your issue with the set?


I have the codes but it depends on model number and what problem with set is, reset is in Option menu but will not cure all problems.

SOURCE: WS-55511 Mitsubishi projection TV is stuck on INPUT 4.

This model was first made in 2002 and is a V21 Mitsubishi chassis.

I presume the front input or device button does not do anything.


This (if it is a WS-55511) has an option code that can be accessed. It will reset everything back to the condition the set was in when it was new in the box; once executed you will have to put it in the cable band and autoprogram it----email me if you need instructions for this and I will give them to you.

SOURCE: I have a Mitsubishi HDTV 1080, model #WS-55511 and the green power light is blinking on and off. We've used the paperclip to reset the machine and it doesn't work, and we've unplugged the power supply

replace the capacitors on the DM board. Heres a link to the repair kit which contains the replacement capacitors and instrucions of how to do the repair.

Your symptom sounds like at least one damaged convergence IC.

On Mitsubishi's2.gif you can sometimes rework the solder connections on each of these IC’s, although, if the convergence does not fix itself from time to time, you most likely do not have a bad solder connection. You will have a faulty IC. I recommend replacing them both at the same time because the chips legs can fall off due to the heat of the IC. If you have a good low wattage soldering iron ~ 45W (available at radio shack) you can perform the repair yourself, and this will most likely take care of the entire issue.


I like to remove the board that the IC’s are on so that I can unsolder the connections and clean then up using solder wick (this is also available from radio shack). Removing the board is not a real issue as the connectors are all labeled with an alpha number, so that you can connect them back real easy. There are three in the middle towards the front that I like to mark with a sharpie as they are the red green and blue convergence coil connections (they are all the same size in a row). Just mark them with slashes, like I, II, III, or something like that. If you mix them up it is not a big issue, you can test swapping them around until the picture lines up.

Please be sure to remove the entire white heat sink compound on the heat sink and apply an even coating over the back of the new IC’s. You should also bolt them down before you solder them in so that you have them at the correct height.

There are two very large IC’s that control the convergence in a big screen set. They are secured to a very large aluminum heat sink. I think that the IC numbers will be IC8001, 80002.


The IC’s are large and black, you cannot miss them. They will usually have an STKXXX-XXX number on them.

This repair from a good technician will normally run from $250.00 - $300.00, and sometimes more depending on your area.

There are several schools of thought on the replacement of parts and I firmly believe that you get what you pay for, so don’t buy the cheapest IC’s that you can find. One company I worked for tried this and it only caused more work for the technicians, as we had to replace them with the more expensive ones in the end. I would think that you should be able to find these for around $60.00 each. If you can find the exact
Hitachi part, or Sanyo, even though the numbers on the front are the same, and they look exactly like the $10.00 ones, they are better and more reliable.

I usually order my parts from Andrews Electronics in
California, they will have the OEM components that you will need.
Their site is http://www.andrewselectronics.com/welcome.aspx
And their phone number is a 24-Hour Order Desk: (800) 274-4666
I recommend the phone order so you can talk to the person about the different types of IC’s that are available.

You can also try http://www.tvrepairkits.com/ , I have not tried them yet, but they do carry OEM or better parts.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Yes, it can be repaired, replace convergence out chips (two ICs) on main board.
If you are not comfortable with TV repair or have no experience, call local tech to fix it. Cost of repair would be $180 or so.
