    I just got the same TV with the same problem (except it's the red tube). I've ordered some new STK392-110's to swap in. I'm looking for the service manual so I can tweak the convergence settings once the amps are swapped out.

It does sound like the blue convergence amplifier IC,if you are familiar with soldering and unsoldering electronic components you can change it yourself,the first thing to do is identify the convergence IC's,all of the should have the same part number and start with STK--- ---,every set uses different numbers(amps).Is suggested you change all 3 of them at the same time and the average price for one is about 18.00 for the good ones.Once you know the STK number you can find them at www.partstore.com .If you are not too familiar with tv service you should seek the assistance of a servicer,sometimes you dont need to do adjustments after you replace the IC's but other times you need to get into the service menu and do some adjustments.Let Us know if you need more information.

I'm trying to watch a 3d movie in my blue ray 3d


First off is your TV a 3D TV. If it is you should be able to go into the menu setting (or on the remote) and change the display from regular TV to 3D. Then your 3D blu-ray player should recognize it.

How do I view movies in 3D on the Mitsubishi WD-Y65?


WD-Y65 is NOT a 3D ready TV. You either have to change the TV to see the movie in 3D, or just watch it in 2D in you current TV.

I have the same TV as yours. Current I connect a desktop PC to the TV via DVI port, and I watch Avatar using colorcode 3D(Amber/Blue) with Stereoscopic Player from www.3dtv.at It might be a way for you to enjoy 3D without change the whole thing, but it's an entire different topic.

I turned my tv on this morning and the colors were all out of wack. the tv was producing an image similer to what an old 3d movie with the red and blue images. i tried reseting the tv to factory default...


All projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video or dead set) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both.

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. In some cases the TV will also not show any video. 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, wavy, or has a shadow or shadows
  • 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.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

Hooked up PS3 to system and when watching DVD's the right side of the picture is blurry and appears doubled, like an old 3D movie without the red and blue glasses. When watching TV everything looks fine.

3D in tv technology wright now are in it infincy.Not worth the money to buy the 3D LED tv and it 3D external devices.Right now are very limited in productions in movies in 3D world or 3D movies for tv or transfer from 3D movies from the movies theather Big Screen.Right now,just best to watch 3D movies in the theather Big Screen.Stick to a 2 dementional LCD tv screen for at lest another 5 years,before there are 3D tvs and movies,will make a difference in ur lives.
