Re: Mitsubishi VS-45607 Picture flickers and dims
It could be a bad solder connection that opens up as the set warms up. It could also be caused by a couple of bad capacitors, C2p05 (100uf/16v) Located By Ic2p01 and check C2c52 (10uf/50v) Located near Q2c51. A technican will be able to fix it for about what you paid for it I suppose.

sounds like a defective cappacitor or leaky diode in the deflection circuits. Unless youre comfortable working around the high voltage circuits of a rear projection set, it may be best to call a reputable repair facility that is famillair with mitsubishi products.
Just got this fixed. The problem is the 21 (yes, 21) main capacitors. It'll only get worse if they aren't replaced. The whole screen'll start jumping, multi-hour "warm up" times until you get a clear picture, maybe not even then... it isn't pretty. Just nip it in the bud now, and more power to you if you tackle it yourself. A good repair shop ought to be able to do this for under $400 if you can't.
Oh good, two people. I was getting weary of attempting to slightly change my answer for all the other people who didn't use the "has the same problem" feature. Anyway, the problem both of you have is not too far gone yet, but will get worse if you let it. It's the main capacitors. Maybe not all 21, but probably at least half of the 21 main caps are shot. All should be replaced at any rate. Any shop worth it's salt ought to be able to do this for you for under $400 if you can't do this yourself.
