    Tech came to the house and said it needed a new microprocessor. TV symptom is the picture is wavy and colors are blurred. He said $400 bucks and two weeks in the shop. I paid him $45 for the visit and said thanks but no thanks.

  • Ralph Bates Jun 12, 2007

    Okay great, thank you. The $45 bucks is gone. I will send you a photo but it will be tomorrow. Thanks!

    Okay I got to see the problem myself first hand today. I looks like a yoke pin cushion problem. The sides pull in and the convergence is off badly except right in the center of the screen. About the size of a softball in the center it's okay.

    A photo is attached Thanks!

  • Ralph Bates Jun 14, 2007

    Okay but can you see how the screen bows in on the top, bottom and both sides? I would think the convergence being off is the result of whatever is causing it to bow in...?

    Have you seen convergence IC's cause this kind of problem before? It kind of looks like it would if you pulled the yoke back on the picture tube.

    Okay, so if it's the convergence IC's, are they in pluggable sockets? Where can I get them etc? Thanks

Can I ask you why you think the microprocessors bad? I have never in all of my years of repairing Mitsubishi TV sets ever had a bad microprocessor. Did a tech tell you this? Let me know what the symptoms are.

    No, a microprocessor will not cause this problem, I would ask the owner to give you back your money But if you could send a picture I will diagnoise it for free! Post it here!

    Oh man you need convergence IC's not a micropricessor. There are two IC's that need to be changed.

How to replace back strut?

buy a pair of struts on ebay or at a parts store, stay away from dealers. call several shops and ask them for labor costs, go with cheapest. there are special tools needed and a lift makes it so much easier. you do not want to do this yourself. look for "quik struts" which include the strut mount and a new coil spring, the install labor will be cheaper. there will most likely be an adjustment on the bottom of the strut which will need to be set on an alignment rack so use a shop where they have that service.

Timeing belt replacement do i need special tools to repalce the timeing belt on a 2002 mitsubishi eculpse v6

actually if you have never done this before, yes...
there is atool to hold the crankshaft pulley in place to remove and re-torque the crankshaft bolt, you'll need a vise to compress the tensioner, they recomend a tool to remove the slack in the belt after installing the new belt, and you'll need an inch pound torque wrench and a foot pound torque wrench that is able to go to 184 NM. air tools help ALOT!

Front tires on S10 wearing outside edges. Proper

All of the above on a bad day. You will need to find an alignment shop you trust and allow them to check more closely. To ask that kind of question is like you asking me 'How much change do you have in your pocket' of course there is not way for me to know.
I do know most professionals can tell you once they look at it.

You over cost should normally be under 200.00 for repairs and alignment. Look for a special in the paper or online.

Mitsubishi VS50605 rear projection TV won't come on

The power supply caps in the light engine power supply were faulty when they were installed. You need to remove the power supply and take it to your local electronics shop where they can remove the (7) faulty 1000uf 16v electrolytic capacitors and insert new ones. If you remove the power supply yourself (takes only a philips screwdriver) and reinstall it yourself, the electronics shop shouldn't charge you for more than an hour worth of time. The caps would be about $10.

Here's a photograph (thanks Don Crawford).
